Clinical Psychologist in Ann Arbor, MI
I'm experienced in working with climate anxiety and climate grief, as well as with ecological anxiety and grief in general. I also help people reduce stress through increasing their connection with nature. In person, I offer nature-based therapy and hiking therapy for established clients.
For some clients I integrate various perspectives into my work, including contemporary relational psychoanalytic perspectives, systems approaches, and cognitive-behavioral approaches. This enables me to consider your situation in the context of the systems in which you're embedded, as well as to examine things with you in a deep way while also looking more directly at examining your thoughts and behaviors.
Everyone has a story to be told, and I believe that providing a space where your story can be heard, understood, and reflected upon is a vital aspect of therapy. What that means for you as a client is that therapy with me will be individualized and personal. We will examine and explore the "why," not just the "what, when, where, and how." Healing, change, and symptom relief from this perspective occur through insight and growth from the inside-out.
I specialize in working with climate- and eco-grief, as well as working with grief and loss in general.
Therapy is a process of deep personal growth, and facilitating that is an important part of my therapeutic role. I will help you examine your history and increase your self-awareness and understanding of your self.
