I have been licensed as a psychologist by the State of Michigan since 1985. I earned a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, completed a predoctoral internship at the University of Oklahoma Medical School, and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan Medical Center. I have 6 grown children and live with my husband and 3 cats in Ann Arbor.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
The choice of a therapist is a very personal one. It is a relationship and, as in other relationships, sometimes there is a good fit and other times not so good. I always suggest that, if someone is looking for a therapist, they schedule an initial visit to see if they feel that the therapist is someone that they can connect with. Even a therapist who your best friend raves about may not end up being the right therapist for you. Trust your reactions at the initial meeting and be open to meeting with another therapist if this one is not for you.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Many of the patients that I work with struggle with depression, anxiety, or situational stress and worry. Relationship issues, whether they be between parent and child, relationship partner, friends or co-workers can negatively impact overall well-being and mental health. Addressing these challenges results in greater life satisfaction.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I have been in practice in the same location since 1985. I feel very honored to have had the opportunity to participate in the journey that patients are on as they process and resolve issues that are keeping them from being their best.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I have a special interest in treating individual with chronic depression, anxiety disorders, and adjustment to chronic medical conditions. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I have a focus on assisting cancer patients cope with the many emotional aspects of this, and other, serious illnesses.
