LMSW, Therapist

Pronouns: She/her

One of the most important parts of therapy is having a connected and trusting relationship with your therapist. I approach sessions with empathy and curiosity, asking questions and providing thoughtful observations so I can get to know the true you and get a feel for what life is like in your shoes. My framework is person-centered, meaning that I see you as the expert on yourself, and will tailor our work together to suit your preferences and needs. While our focus is on you, I also take into account the impact of your environment, and use an intersectional lens to explore how your identities shape your experience in the world. I appreciate the strength and vulnerability it takes to open up and share your true thoughts and feelings, and would be honored to walk alongside you in your journey, offering a supportive outside perspective to guide you in self-exploration, building coping skills, and moving from surviving to thriving

A little about me: I am a Native (Ojibwa), queer woman originally from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and a Licensed Master’s Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Michigan. I received my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Michigan in 2019. During my MSW program and since graduating, I have worked with children and adults from many different backgrounds, struggling with issues including anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, self-harm/self-injury, and suicidal ideation. I currently work with adolescents and adults, and enjoy supporting LGBTQ+ and neurodivergent people.

Currently accepting new Medicaid clients for virtual sessions
