About Me

I work with adults and adolescents who are experiencing life transitions, loss, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, trauma, or chronic pain/illness. A broad array of therapeutic orientations and tools inform my practice including sand tray, CBT, DBT, parts work, ego states, attachment issues, and interpersonal neurobiology. Attending to the interactions between emotional, physical, spiritual, and cultural factors helps me to collaborate with the client to find creative paths for healing and transformation. In addition to my work, I love reading, spending time outside in nature, gardening, playing piano, choral singing, and spending time with my husband and our two adult children.

Education & Experience

Over the past decade, working in a busy psychiatric practice has given me clinical experience with complex mental health presentations, PTSD, ADHD, TBI, bipolar, developmental trauma, personality disorders, and treatment resistant depression. I have prior experiences in school social work, residential substance abuse, and mediation. When my children were young, I enjoyed teaching piano to children and adults from a home studio. I graduated from the University of Michigan School of Social Work in 1993.
