There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives. ~ Audre Lorde
I work to create a welcoming and collaborative environment in the therapy room. As a therapist, I believe in bringing my own empathy and authenticity in to meet clients where they are in dealing with their struggles. I draw from strengths-based practices to help clients develop better coping skills in the present. I also enjoy providing therapeutic services to clients looking to process past traumas and cope with identity-based concerns, including dealing with marginalization and oppression.
I am primarily interested in working individually with LGBTQIA+ adolescents, adults, and college students. I enjoy helping clients understand the impact their cultural identities have on experiences of stress and wellbeing. I also have experience working with both queer and non-queer clients on issues related to anxiety, depression, trauma, perfectionism, and relationship issues.
I have a 2.5-year-old coonhound/cattle dog mix, Olive, who frequently joins me in the office! Olive loves sitting in with folks to help them cope with stress, and she loves walking around the office asking for head scratches.
I completed my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Western Michigan University in 2019 and am currently enrolled in the Counseling Psychology doctoral program at WMU.
I am a Temporary Master’s Limited Psychologist (TMLP) in the State of Michigan. As such, I receive ongoing supervision from a fully licensed psychologist, Julie Meredith Davis, Ph.D., LP. To schedule an appointment, please call the main office at 269-459-1818. Please know that I am currently doing both in-person and telehealth therapy.
