LMSW & LPC
I received both my Bachelor of Science and my Master of Arts at Western Michigan University. My Master's degree is in Counseling Psychology. Additionally, I have 20 hours of post graduate work in holistic health from the college of Health and Human Services at WMU. Kalamazoo is the home of the Fetzer Center, one of the original pioneers in the study of the mind, body, spirit connection. I have many years of experience working both in public mental health systems and in private practice settings. In the public system, I served as a supervisor and a clinical director. The work was primarily administrative in nature and I grew progressively disenchanted with the tasks at hand. At the end of 2003, I left the public mental health system to pursue my career as a psychotherapist. I have worked with several private practice groups since that time. I have thoroughly enjoyed my work as a therapist.
I left my last private practice of 12 years at the end of 2019. This was due to an accident which left me partially crippled and dependent upon a cane. Navigating my way in the winter months became far more difficult. It was very hard for me to leave my practice, my clients and my colleagues. However, this is one of the things that makes me an ideal candidate for on line therapy provision. In addition to practicing the tenants of holistic health, I am a firm believer in a cognitive behavioral approach. I also have extensive training in the Trauma Model created by Colin Ross, MD. This model specifically addresses survivors of childhood trauma. The lingering effects of childhood trauma are becoming increasingly recognized as the root cause of depression, anxiety, addictions and anger management issues. I also have experience with children who have experienced trauma and with children with ADHD and ADD. I have worked with children in foster care and their providers as well as with adopted children and their adoptive families.
