Hello! My name is Tessa and I earned a Master of Arts in Counseling from Spring Arbor University (CACREP Accreditation) in 2021 and am currently a Limited Licensed Counselor (LLC) practicing in the State of Michigan. In addition, I hold a Professional Teaching Certificate in the State of Michigan with endorsements in special education and school counseling. 

Most of my experience has been within the school setting. However, throughout my clinical and professional development opportunities, I have gained experience in individual and group therapy, critical incident stress management debriefing, crisis prevention intervention, working with individuals and veterans experiencing homelessness, trauma awareness, and knowledge on integrating mindfulness into the counseling process. I am most passionate about helping individuals through phase of life struggles, women's issues, and perinatal and postpartum struggles.  

My primary therapeutic approach is Person-Centered with the belief that the client is the expert. You know yourself best and I will help you on your journey of self-actualization. I believe you ultimately know what you need and want. Sometimes we encounter blocks in our life that make it difficult to recognize our potential. Through a person-centered approach, I will be able to tailor a treatment plan integrating other therapeutic approaches based on what is best for you as an individual. Entering therapy provides an opportunity to start fresh. It is a blank page for however you want to write or rewrite your own story. I look forward to being part of YOUR journey!
