A Safe Space for Meaningful Change

Counseling for Adults in Michigan

who feel misunderstood

and invalidated in their lives.

Serving clients virtually throughout

Michigan, office based in Royal Oak, MI.

Do you feel like stress has taken over your life? 

Do you feel like you misplaced your true self somewhere 
along the way? 

Together we will work through your feelings of overwhelm to help you gain insight,

cultivate strength and develop coping skills to provide you with the tools to manage difficult emotions, interpersonal relationships, and life transitions. 


My own journey, interlaced with personal encounters of depression, anxiety, trauma, and the transformative power of therapy, has deepened my understanding and compassion. This compassion extends especially to those of you identifying as empaths or highly sensitive individuals, grappling with the complexities of depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, low-self-esteem, body image issues, and challenging relationships.

Through my research and experience, I've come to understand that the heart of effective counseling lies in the strength of the relationship I build with my clients. That's why I always prioritize establishing and maintaining a positive, supportive connection with each client.
