read over 55 FIVE-star reviews!


Selected as "2017 South Haven Best Family Therapist" with over 55 five-star reviews,  I have 30+ years experience in helping people mend broken hearts and wounded spirits to find inner peace and regain self-confidence. As my client, you will find healing and practical life solutions, resulting in positive changes for recovery and positive self-care while you regain control of your life.

As a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, I specialize in individual, family, and marriage therapy. Also, I am a trained mediator, crisis debriefer (CISM), and Jungian dream analyst. We work as a team using talk therapy, healing techniques, and coping skills to have you reach your fullest potential. In finding your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being through personal control, you will create a healthier, happier you, affecting all aspects of your life.

As the script-writer, director, and producer of your own life, you set the agenda for each counseling session and therapeutic goals. You already have the resources necessary to sort through the important issues, and I, as a trusted guide, assist in the process of you making your life be what you want. We work together to remove any obstacles to your highest well-being and happiness and to develop your skills to be an autonomous individual. If you do the work of therapy and change the internal narrative, your life will never be the same!

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
