The COVID-19 pandemic has been such a stressful time. So many people are faced with life transitions that they did not expect. Finally addressing issues that were pushed away for years and accompanied by an overwhelming feeling of stress; this is indeed a mental health pandemic. The amount of people who are reaching out to therapists has skyrocketed in the last year. You are not alone in realizing that therapy isn’t only an option but possibly a necessity. It’s more needed now than ever, and being able to recognize that is the first step towards living your best life free of the baggage of your past and problems.
Through active and committed participation in therapy, I help my clients recognize their problems and work with them to implement effective solutions. I identify patterns in my client’s life where they continually run into the same issues and apply the same answer that never has worked and, perhaps, never will. By addressing these unhealthy patterns, I foster behavioral and cognitive changes so clients can live life consciously and intentionally instead of living a life driven by unconscious reactions.
I am a graduate of Wayne State University’s Counseling Psychology Master’s program, and I offer individual, couples, and family therapy. The issues that I help my clients with are anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, family conflict, conflict resolution, spirituality, existential issues, and LGBTQIA issues. I use theoretical approaches of Imago therapy and psychodynamic therapy, which focus on an individual’s upbringing and primary relationships early in life, along with a solution-focused Cognitive-Behavioral approach. I also utilize psycho-education so that my clients learn how to help themselves and are not solely dependent on the therapist for change.
I can accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and dedicate a portion of my practice to people in need of reduced-fee or pro bono services. I speak English and Spanish.
Now accepting new patients in our downtown Detroit offices or online, anywhere in Michigan.
