Relationships play an important role in our everyday lives. When our relationships don't go well, it can create a feeling of stress and uneasiness. As a therapist in East Lansing, MI, I work with individuals, couples and families to help relationships heal. In addition, I offer therapy for trauma and work with individuals with complex trauma to help them heal their wounds from the past or present. I work primarily with adults, but also teens and children as a part of a family system.
While we can't change difficult situations from the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we can develop an awareness of systemic patterns or negative sensations or perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
