Compassionate, Heart-Centered Counseling for Women

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”   —Anaïs Nin

Are you ready to rise above the murky waters and blossom?

I offer many therapy and counseling options.  These include individual counseling, hypnotherapy, equine assisted psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy, life coaching, personal development workshops, and arts based experiences for women.

Empowerment ~ Mindfulness ~ Spirituality

My counseling approach is holistic and strengths based.   We focus on what’s right and good in your life as the foundation to make the changes you desire.  Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger, more confident, and claiming your rights.  Mindfulness practices encourage a nonjudgmental awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, and experiences.  Spirituality focuses on finding your meaning, purpose, connection, and direction in life.

Counseling Specializations

Traumatic experiences, life altering events and illness, and challenging life transitions can make it difficult to cope with day-to-day responsibilities.  I offer a path to wellness.  My specialties include women’s counseling and coaching for trauma recovery, personal development, and stress reduction. This includes depression, anxiety, self esteem, self worth, personal identity, time management, work-life balance,  and professional aspirations.  I am culturally sensitive and LGBTQ friendly.

Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Life Coach

I have over 15 years’ experience in the helping profession plus extensive experience in training and consulting working with individuals, groups and small business.  I am certified by the International Association of Trauma Professionals for trauma therapy.  I have received my training in hypnotherapy from The Wellness Institute and am working toward my certification.   I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Michigan and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I hold a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and a graduate certificate in expressive arts therapy from Appalachian State University.
