I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Michigan with specialized knowledge in child and adolescent development, families, and school related issues.
My practice is primarily focused on developing a collaborative relationship with caregivers (typically parents) who are looking for consultation-based support services including practical parenting tools, topic focused education on developmental or specific mental health issues/disabilities, and general support and guidance in dealing with challenging behaviors, situations, or concerns related to their child’s growth.
Additionally, I offer individual therapy for adults (individuals 18 and over) to provide support and intervention related to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or adjustment disorders.
I do NOT offer therapy for children at this time, nor can I provide you with referrals to other clinicians. I may suggest treatment options for your child during the course of our work together, but will not recommend specific individuals or clinics for the provision of those services.

I have worked as a psychologist for over 25 years, with experience in clinical, hospital, and educational settings providing therapy, evaluation, and consultation. Additionally, I have taught classes on human and adolescent development at the Master’s level.
My education and professional experiences have given me an appreciation for the complexity and uniqueness of human development and insight into contextual issues that impact that development. My practice is focused on supporting parents and other caregivers to make decisions and implement strategies that will be effective in guiding the optimal and unique developmental path for their children.
