Petoskey Professional Counselors, LLC, MS, LPC, Counselor in Petoskey
I work with individuals who wish to live a full and rewarding life regardless of past experiences or current challenges. My clients have a range of issues which may include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, recent or remote trauma, childhood maltreatment, family dysfunction, women's issues, distortions of thought, or grief and loss. I use a variety of carefully chosen modalities to assist clients in reaching their personal goals. Such modalities might include CBT, traditional talk therapy, relaxation, biofeedback, pyschodynamic interpretation, assessment measures, and reading or writing material.
Making changes is never easy. It takes purposeful effort both inside and outside the therapy environment. Many clients find personal growth both difficult and rewarding. Therapy is not a sprint, it means learning new techniques for living and continuing to hone these techniques long after the therapeutic relationship has ended.
I received a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Barry University in Miami Florida in 1998. In addition to private practice, supervising clinical programs, and contributing to "Being" magazine, I served as Adjunct Faculty at Miami-Dade college for 7 years before relocating to Petoskey Michigan in 2007.
