​My approach to counseling is client-centered and focuses on exploring and changing thoughts and therefore changing behaviors.  My approach focuses on the client's story from their perspective.  


My Approach

Counseling Services of Northern Michigan specializes in marriage and family therapy and individual therapy, focusing but not limited to the following issues/concerns:


-Anger Management

-Pre-marital Counseling

​-Relationship Issues

-Conflict Resolution

-Communication Enhancement


-Substance Abuse/Addiction

-Behavioral Management


​-Stress/Crisis Management 

Your first appointment will consist of a 90 minute intake assessment. During this appointment we will discuss your history as well as what is going on currently.  We will spend time talking about your goals and creating a treatment plan. Initial paperwork will also be completed during this session. 

Once the intake assessment is completed, together we will determine the frequency of counseling sessions and schedule your first appointment.  Typically, counseling sessions are 50 minutes and occur weekly or bi-weekly, until therapy is completed.
