History of Center for Change & Well-Being
My interest in counseling started while working for a law firm as an executive paralegal. In that role, I worked very closely with clients and their families through legal proceedings. While working with them, it was clear they needed as much help if not more help with their emotional well-being as the legal proceeding themselves. These experiences made me realize that I could do much more by helping people at the emotional level. I really wanted to make a difference in people’s lives that last a lifetime
It was soon after in 2009 that I pursued my career path as Licensed Professional Counselor and a Marriage and Family Therapist. My passion for helping people with everyday struggles and their intimate relationships contributed to my interest in learning more about sex and the impact it has on our lives. I really began to notice how many people were struggling in this department with their sexual selves and intimate relationships. This is when I decided to get more specialized training and entered the Sex Therapy program at the University of Michigan.
After many years of training, ongoing supervision, and experience in non-profit organizations and private practice, I started Center for Change & Well-Being to share my knowledge and passion about sex, intimacy, and relationships. My clients would say that my therapeutic style is direct and genuine with a warm compassionate base.
I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is very important in the process of healing…
Therapy is about finding yourself by improving how you feel about yourself. It is also about understanding how to connect in your relationships and to be understood. I am committed to implementing a solution focused plan that best fits your own personal style to achieve your goals.
I look forward to working with you!
