Meet the Therapist
Hello! I am the owner and sole practitioner of Living Hope Counseling Center! I opened LHCC to provide quality client-centered mental health care that encourages positivity, hope, and healing. I have spent the past 6 years studying and serving as a mental health professional in the Metro Detroit area. While I do see clients with a variety of presenting concerns, my true passion lies with helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, and trauma.
Bachelor of Science in General Psychology from Western Michigan University - 2014
Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Oakland University - 2017
When someone comes into my office, I make every effort to cultivate a safe, calm, judgement free space. I understand the courage and strength it requires to take those first steps in seeking help and additional support. That is why I make it my first priority to establish a trusting therapeutic connection with my clients, allowing the client to feel heard, understood, and supported. In addition to fostering a secure connection with my clients, I place great emphasis on the client being the expert on themselves.
While I don't have a magic wand or cure for mental wellness, I do believe that there are a three key ingredients that can enhance the effectiveness of therapy and help improve ones state of mental health and wellness.
Hope: the belief that better days, positive change, and healing are possible.
Self-compassion: treating ourselves with the same care and kindness we would give to a good friend
Self-awareness: conscious knowledge of one's own character, feelings, motives, and desires
Acceptance and Commitment (ACT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Specialties and Presenting Concerns
Divorce (child and parent perspective)
Domestic Abuse and Violence
Grief and Loss
