The following MSP students are completing their clinical training hours at the Michigan School Psychological Clinic this academic year. Due to the nature of clinical training, the student clinicians’ tenure at the clinic is limited to one academic year (August-July).
Under the supervision of Clinic Staff, each student will provide direct psychological services to clients in need of mental health care at a reasonable cost.
My goal in therapy is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for my clients who come seeking therapy. I strive towards making them feel comfortable and open to discussing with me the reasons why they are seeking therapy. My background includes working with kids on the Autism spectrum and I hope to continue to further my knowledge so that I can work with many others from various communities with diverse backgrounds.
My technique as a student clinician at MSP is cultivated through a Humanistic lens. I center my treatment around trauma, childhood development, and behavior while prioritizing creating a safe and empathetic space for clients to explore their inner world. I believe individuals possess the innate capacity for growth and self-actualization; therefore, I guide my clients on a journey of self-discovery and healing. Through a client-centered approach, I encourage them to delve into past traumas, childhood experiences, and complex emotions, fostering self-awareness and empowerment. Together, we work towards emotional resilience, self-acceptance, and a deeper understanding of their unique life journey.
My goal in therapy is to create a welcoming, non-judgmental, calm space for my clients to be comfortable in. I approach each client where they are and see that every clients life journey and therapy journey are unique to them and want to honor that in sessions. While conversations may be uncomfortable and difficult to have, I hope by holding this calm welcoming space to be able to help my clients feel comfortable sharing these challenging times with me. I focus on working with trauma and eating disorders and look forward to helping my clients through these challenging journeys.
My goal is to create a safe therapeutic environment where clients can be authentic, present, and have the space to grow. I have previously worked with developmentally disabled and neurodivergent communities, as well as people with trauma and chronic, progressive, or terminal diseases. My background with these communities has taught me that each person is unique and deserves to be heard, seen, and respected. My hope is to develop trusting relationships with my clients and provide tools individualized to their unique needs. In sessions, I primarily use behavioral therapies, such as ACT, PCIT, exposure, and Coping Cat, with humanistic values.
My primary goal as a therapist is to use a humanistic approach to create a safe space to facilitate the growth and development for each client. I use a person-centered approach and specialized therapeutic interventions for depression, anxiety, trauma, problem solving and coping skills. I believe that every individual has the potential to blossom when their emotions are supported with care and validation. I aim to cultivate therapeutic relationships where clients feel free to express and explore their identities while working towards optimal emotional wellbeing.
I approach therapy through a client-centered lens by looking at the person as a unique individual. Interventions must be specifically tailored to the client’s unique experiences. My goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment where we can collaboratively work to give you the tools you need to navigate psychological distress independently. My focus is in humanistic and behavioral modalities, and together we can work to address distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I embrace the humanistic-existential approach to therapy and recognize that you are the expert of your own life. Empathy and nonjudgement are at the center of my approach as I help you rediscover your innate ability for meaning, growth, and self-discovery. I hope to help guide you to uncovering your authentic self, offering support and a deep respect for your unique journey. I am also trauma informed and utilize culturally sensitive practices to therapy. Together, we can embark on a path towards a more meaningful and purposeful existence.
In my therapy, I strive to build the best working environment for my clients. Through my passion in helping others become their best self and my emphasis on the humanistic approach to psychotherapy, my goal is to make the client feel comfortable and supported. My clients and I work together to achieve their highest potential. I work with a variety of disorders and age ranges. Together we will work together to face the challenges you may be experiencing!
I approach therapy primarily from a humanistic perspective with a focus on my clients and helping them with their symptoms and goals. I use client focused conversations to get to the root of problems and explore their experiences. It is very important to me to build trust and rapport in the therapeutic relationship so we can set goals and help each client improve. I aim to create a non-judgmental space for clients to share any and all experiences throughout their life on a path of self discovery, acceptance, and healing. I am open to working with all ages, experiences and couples.
We experience losses in our lives every day. When we properly acknowledge and grieve our losses, big or small, expected or unexpected, we can create room to grow from where we are. I believe therapy can support people to make sense of their experiences, find their voices, and promote a more meaningful understanding of their place in the world.

I believe in working collaboratively with my clients to help them get through any obstacles that may hinder their happiness. Through a therapeutic relationship we can work together to explore the past while working on the here-and-now.
In therapy, I aim to provide every client with the safety and support they need to find healing and reach towards their fullest potential. I believe that the therapeutic process is richest when it accounts for the whole person, including the client's unique needs, experiences, and strengths.
My desire, as a therapist, is to help people gain understanding and insight into their experiences. I find that this process brings about revelation, instills hope, and fosters growth, healing, and transformation.
I am very excited to meet new clients and to get the honor to listen to their stories. Coming to therapy is one of the bravest thing a person can do, allowing me to be in this journey with the client is my passion. My goal is to create a safe space for clients to express their thoughts and emotions freely with no judgement. Each person has the right to be seen, heard and validated.

My intention in our therapy is to offer a safe environment for the processing of experiences to encourage healing, personal growth, and self-acceptance. I consider the strengthening of belief in one’s narrative as fuel for empowerment and insight. Through identifying ideas which are no longer serving clients, we will develop new viewpoints which align more closely with present experience.
