I believe that resilience is in all of us and healing is a path we can choose to walk at any time if we are willing to take the first step. Sometimes even helping professionals need their own helper, someone to listen to their experiences and walk alongside them as they process the challenges of helping. Focusing on secondary trauma and occupational stress issues I believe my role as a therapist is to support clients as they navigate their healing process. 

After graduating from Michigan State University School of Social Work with a Masters Degree in Social Work I worked with families and children impacted by child welfare issues including foster care and adoption, attachment, child custody issues, parenting time, and mental health.

Trained in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy I worked with children who experienced trauma and their caregivers. I have worked with children, couples, and families as a clinical social worker for over 12 years in Michigan, and have experience working with other helping professionals to address secondary trauma and issues of burnout from occupational stress. 

As a therapist, my role is to support my clients in the healing work they choose to do. I believe therapy is a courageous act of telling our story.

I understand that at times, being human is hard. Going through challenges, changes, mistakes, and traumas, are all common life occurrences. It is natural to have psychological and physical reactions to these events. As your therapist, I will help support you by simply being a listening ear, as well as provide you with the opportunity to learn skills for behavioral change and symptom management.

I believe that transformation and growth occurs through collaboration of appropriate interventions with an increased self-awareness which can be explored through psychotherapy. My office is a judgment-free zone, a safe place for you to be yourself. I would be honored to hear your story and provide you with the care you need and deserve. I look forward to embarking on this journey of healing with you.

I achieved my Master of Social Work degree from Michigan State University and my Bachelor of Applied Science in Family Studies and Human Development at Central Michigan University. I am licensed in the State of Michigan to provide psychotherapy and other social services.

I have previous professional experience in school social work, case management, in-patient substance abuse rehabilitation, outpatient mental health therapy, as well as vocational support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Life stresses can be difficult to manage, especially without support. The effects of trauma, stress, and life changes can wear on us without being conscious of it. Therapy can assist in creating a safe space to discuss these concerns and histories as well as working collaboratively to forge a new future. Transparency, creativity, and humor are three key values of mine in working with others.

I have found these values helpful in working with families, adolescents, and adults.
I received my Masters in Social Work from Michigan State University and have been providing services for over 12 years. I’ve worked in community-based therapy, crisis intervention services, and academic support for students. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) as well as narrative therapy and other modes of treatment.

It is a privilege to be able to walk along someone as they navigate their story and create new paths.

Paul’s Specialty Areas of Practice:

  • Adjustment issues
  • LGBTQ+ Support
  • Behavioral Issues
  • Coping Skills
  • Anxiety
  • Career counseling

Taking the first step to enter into therapy can be incredibly difficult and takes courage.  After doing so, you will feel relieved, as if a weight has been lifted. You will be on the path to finding fulfillment and resolving issues impacting your life. I believe clients are experts in themselves and as such, my role is to offer support and to help you to identify common threads or patterns of behavior. You will receive insight, constructive feedback, and support with compassion. My goal is to create an environment where you feel safe and free to express your thoughts and feelings without judgment. I am here to listen to your story and help you make positive, lasting changes.

During my many years of experience, I have had the privilege of partnering with clients to deal with a variety of issues such as anxiety, stress, trauma, depression, domestic violence, sexual abuse, relationship and family issues, and challenges with parenting.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Old Dominion University in 1997 and Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Central Michigan University in 2003.  I have worked in both the private and public sectors providing services to children and families. I have extensive knowledge and experience with domestic violence and trauma. I have a special interest in working with veterans of the armed forces and am honored by their sacrifice and commitment to serving their country. I also have a passion for working with couples; relationships can be difficult to navigate and at times can leave partners feeling disconnected and hopeless. I help clients to process their individual needs and communicate more effectively which is key to an equal, fulfilling relationship based upon trust.
