“For the past 20 years, I have been a member of the human service field providing clinical and art psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, and families. I obtained my doctorate in Clinical and Humanistic Psychology in 2004 and my specialist degree in Psychology in 2001. A Master of Education with a specialization in Art Therapy was earned in 1994. My work experience includes employment as a contractual therapist at Macomb Family Services; providing counseling services to children, adolescents, and young adults in the Fitzgerald School System through Baypointe Psychological Associates; offering the Sandcastles program as a Divorce Adjustment Support Group through the Livingston Court System; Macomb Child Guidance Clinic, providing psychotherapy services to individuals, couples, and families. I have also been employed as an Art Therapist, working with in-patient and partial patient children, adolescents and adults and lectured on the subjects of Women's Special Interests and Stress Management at several universities within the United States.
My relationship with the arts has remained steadfast. I continue my journey through life being a creative adult, utilizing my degrees as a psychotherapist and art therapist. I am dedicated to providing comfort and without judgment to individuals as they work through and resolve issues related to anxiety, depression, divorce transition, grief and loss, low self-esteem, stress related issues, and women’s issues. I have specialized training in the areas of grief counseling, women's issues, children and divorce, and counseling victims of sexual trauma. As a Humanistic Psychologist, I am dedicated to the belief that all individuals have the potential toward self-awareness and the capacity to experience personal human growth. It is my hope that you now have a picture of my education, work experience, and professional interests.

Creativity is like freedom: Once you taste it, you cannotlive without it. It is a t ransformative force, enhancing self-esteem and self-empowerment.
