Central Michigan University | Master’s of Counseling
I received my Master of Counseling, with a focus on both School and Professional Counseling, from Central Michigan University in 2015. Since 2015 I have been working part-time as a clinical therapist for individuals, providing services primarily to children and adolescents and their parents. I have also worked full-time as a School Counselor since 2015 working with grades K-8th grade, which has been tremendously beneficial in navigating issues that my clients experience within the school setting. I am currently attending Oakland University, pursuing my Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership, with a focus on Social Justice, Equity, and Inclusivity.
My approach is client-centered and solution-focused and utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. CBT is based on the core principles that psychological problems are based, in part, on faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking and learned patterns of unhelpful behavior, and that people can learn better ways of coping with them, thereby relieving their symptoms and becoming more effective in their lives.
