About Me

I am therapist licensed in the State Of Michigan. My license is both Clinical and Macro designations. For more than 25 years, I have been treating Adults, Teens, Families-Couples and Seniors who feel challenged with issues of depression, anxiety and substance use issues.
I have obtained my clinical skills working in a variety of clinical settings providing group, individual and couple-family counseling. I opened my private practice in 2001. What I bring to my clients is a solution focused approach to treatment focusing on coping and problem solving while developing personal insight. As we go through life we may be presented with issues that cause us to feel overwhelmed, lost, alone, misunderstood, full of fear and negative. My approach will gently guide you to identify your strengths and weaknesses individually and as a couple. Each person will develop the skills you need to put together a plan that will bring about the positive change you desire for your relation, for your life as a couple-family. Your therapy will be a learning experience for each of you you to build upon. You will feel empowered and come away from treatment with a sense of strength and personal insight.
I am personally very compassionate, empathetic and very interested in hearing your story so we can begin your therapeutic journey

Louise has been a valuable part of our marriage, helping us navigate areas where we're stuck or in conflict. She listens well and provides easy to understand, practical advice. Louise also receives and embraces emotion when it arises, creating a welcoming and safe space for us to explore our marriage.

Louise has been amazing! She is very good at putting things in terms that I (very emotional) & my husband (very logical) can understand & has been great at helping us reconnect & finding common ground. I find myself looking forward to our sessions with Louise & look forward to what the future will bring

Louise is wonderful! She is so insightful and helpful. She encourages, listens, offers advice when needed and guides me along this journey to being a much better me.
I have always had trouble being completely honest with a counselor but Louise gets me and works with me. I could not be paired with a better counselor!! She is amazing

Louise helped my husband and I through a rough patch in our marriage and we are beyond grateful. She hit the nail on the head with our areas of improvement for our communication and we will be forever grateful for her guidance. We will definitely use Louise again if another rough patch comes along. Thank you Louise!!
