About Me

Do unto others as you would have others do unto others. ~Jeree Pawl 

Sometimes the very best thing we can do is to be there:  fully there, with all that we have seen and heard, listening with attention, witnessing with intention.
~Michael Trout

​​My education and training includes earning my doctorate in clinical psychology with a concentration in child and adolescent psychotherapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, California.  I received additional training at the University of California San Francisco’s Infant Parent Program and have earned the highest level of endorsement (Level IV) from the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health.  I am fully licensed in the state of Michigan (LIC#6301011358).

I work with children, their parents, and adults to help address the following issues: 

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • trauma
  • grief and loss
  • adoption
  • attachment
  • early childhood/infant mental health
  • divorce
  • parenting
  • acting out behaviors
  • relationship difficulties

I also provide individual clinical and reflective supervision to mental health professionals throughout the United States.  As a Level IV-Clinical Infant Mental Health mentor, I am able to provide reflective supervision to infant mental health therapists who are seeking professional endorsement.  I am a current member of the Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health and a current member of the International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
