Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being!
As a solution-focused and positive psychologist in the Grand Traverse Region, my goal is to help you uncover, discover and develop your true potential. This process is the way forward that will lead you to the kind of life you deserve that is worth celebrating. While we can't change problems of the past, you and I will work together to better understand, resolve and remove the obstacles and challenges that have been getting in the way of your life. By applying a variety counseling and psychotherapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth your many years of long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. "The purpose of life is to have a ball !" (Albert Ellis, PhD, 2003)
If you're looking for extra encouragement and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to partnering with and encouraging you to develop your new life-skills to achieve your goals. You don't have to be stuck with feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, shame, guilt or other negative emotions impacting your marriage, teen or family. Together we locate what you want to change in your life and develop the skills/techniques and apply them daily. "How you feel is up to you ! " (Don Dinkmeyer, PhD, 2001)
