(LMSW, CAADC)

About Me

I am devoted and passionate about my work and truly enjoy helping people find their happiness. I am a fully licensed Clinical Social Worker (LMSW) and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). I earned my Master's degree in Social Work from Wayne State University and graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I have over ten years of experience working in the mental health field and have specialized in Substance Use issues for the last five years.

I provide professional, confidential counseling to individuals and families. I specialize in Substance Use therapy and Co-occurring disorders, utilizing the Cognitive Behavioral Model and Stages of Change/Motivational Interviewing. In addition, I have extensive knowledge in treating disorders such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I am now trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

I have experience with couples/family counseling as my MSW specialty was in Family Systems/Child Welfare. I provide a compassionate, comfortable environment and use multiple therapeutic techniques to develop strengths and new coping skills. I take great pride in creating a unique and specific treatment plan designed for each individual or family to succeed.
