Meet the Clinician

My hope for clients is to not merely function but to thrive! I don't want you to forgive and forget your traumas. I want you to own them and break the shame that keeps you shut down. Other people may have left you in some dark places, but you have the power to get yourself out. You deserve to have a life worth living, even in the moments you struggle to believe it. My work focuses on collaboratively targeting the ineffective thoughts, feelings, and behaviors you needed to survive the worst moments of your life. You can expect a genuine approach that offers a multitude of evidence-based trauma interventions and resources. I've dedicated my career to trauma and grief therapy working with hundreds of clients and trauma professionals in a multitude of settings; from coordinating trauma programs for one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in Michigan to consulting with various community mental health agencies, groups, and practices. In my downtime, I enjoy camping, traveling and experiencing the world with my husband, our 3 children, and 2 giant Maine Coons! Better Days Counseling and Consultation, LLC is private pay and telehealth only but accepts payment via debit, credit, HSA, and FSA cards. Sliding scales are available upon request and circumstance.
