client-centered, solution focused counseling and coaching


I believe in hope and the power of the counseling experience to reveal it.  I believe that if you REACH for your goals, you will achieve extraordinary fulfillment that comes from following your dreams. 

I am a licensed professional counselor with two decades of unique experiences including career counseling and coaching, personal development counseling and behavioral counseling including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress management, anger management, life balance and personal wellness.   
I am passionate about providing clients with the strategies and tools to achieve their goals and live a happy, fulfilling life.  Sometimes this means letting go of negative thoughts or behaviors that don’t serve you well and ultimately limit your happiness and success.

I truly respect your decision to consider counseling/coaching as a resource for growth and personal development. Ultimately, you’re the expert on your thoughts, feelings, needs and goals.  I believe in you, and I believe in collaboration.  Because a comfortable, positive connection is essential to effective counseling, I offer a complimentary 20 minute consultation to determine if my approach and services will meet your needs.  When you’re ready, please call me at 989-225-0338 or email  I would be honored to work by your side.

I believe that life is a journey, full of joys and disappointments, successes and setbacks. While the extent and nature of my interventions may vary, I strongly believe that all people possess the personal strength and the means to improve their own lives if provided with the necessary guidance and support. As a professional counselor, I consider it my calling to assist individuals in finding or regaining the tools they need to move forward. Counseling with me begins with an accepting relationship. Throughout the sessions we will explore your present situation, the changes, choices, or coping you would like to see happen, your needs and wants, your safety, and emotions. I view counseling as a shared partnership which includes an appreciation of multicultural differences. As your personal coach I will support and challenge you, but for consulting to be effective you must make a commitment of time and energy and take an active part in the process.

My experience as a wife, mother, and counselor has given me a great deal of natural insight into life issues, and together with my professional training this allows me to take a personalized approach to helping my clients address their own issues. I received my Master’s Degree in professional counseling from Central Michigan University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 25 years of experience working with teens and adults. I have experience empowering youth and adults in an individual counseling setting as well as various facilitated support groups. My counseling style is interactive and solution-focused and I strive to provide a safe, comfortable, and supportive therapeutic environment. Trust is HUGE! That’s why I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation.  I offer this initial consultation to all potential clients because I believe that it is important for you to choose who you want to work with when you start this process. To make an appointment, please contact me at 989-313-1144 or email I look forward to starting this journey with you.
