HST Counseling


Counseling Services

Do you ever feel stuck?  Does it seem as though no matter what you do, you can't move beyond your past?  Do you worry about your ability to succeed in life?  Do you feel so low that you struggle to get out of bed in the morning?  If you can relate to any of these statements, I may be able to help you. 

You may be wondering, what happens in counseling?  The first one to two sessions are spent talking about your current and past experiences and learning about the issues for which you want help.  After that, it is up to you to decide what you think will be most helpful.  

I am able to listen, provide feedback and help you look at your circumstances from a different point of view.  We can look at your thoughts and work on changing any unhelpful thought patterns.   If you have a history of trauma, you might want to try EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).  If we try an approach that does not work for you, we can try something else.  My goal is to discover and use the approach or technique that is most helpful for you in moving forward in your life.  

I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety and addictions.  I have received specialized training in treating both children and adults who have experienced trauma through utilizing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR.  I am certified with MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) to provide addiction counseling.

Thank you for considering requesting counseling services with me.  You can schedule an appointment with me via my website.  If you have any questions for me or if you would prefer to schedule an appointment by phone, please call me at 231-487-2446.
