We believe in taking a holistic approach to healthcare that considers the physical, emotional, and mental well being of our patients.
I became a Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist and Bodywork Practitioner in 1998 and worked as a holistic healthcare coach and massage therapist for over 18 years. In 2008, I became ordained as an interfaith minister through Universal Ministries and worked closely with Lakota, Cree and Wyandotte natives on issues of social justice, ecological preservation and access to healthcare and basic resources for families on reservations throughout the U.S. I completed my Associates degree in Early Childhood Development in 2009 and opened a state licensed developmental daycare center serving at-risk youth in the Detroit Metro Area. I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Women and Gender Studies 2013 and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling in 2017 from Oakland University. I completed my counseling internship at a dual diagnosis intensive outpatient facility that provided trauma informed care for both mental health and substance use disorders. I completed training and certification in EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing) in 2018 and specialize in trauma informed care today. My approach is person centered, collaborative, holistic and tailored to individual needs. I use evidence based treatments including DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR, Somatic and Polyvagal Therapy. I provide individual, couples and family counseling to treat mood disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss and substance use disorders. Additonally, I provide mental health consultation services and evaluations for court/school/employment/service animal eligibility. I also offer discounted services to military veterans, first responders and single parent households in need.
