Let's be honest, feeling stuck sucks. You are tired of the anxiety, irritability, and cloud of exhaustion that seems to be hanging over you. But you aren't alone! There is a map and you can build the life you want. People often develop their own solutions when they feel safe talking about their problems. Let me help you get unstuck and moving toward your best life! I work with children, adolescents, and adults in an outpatient setting on an individual or family basis. I utilize an integrative counseling approach that encompasses the individual needs of each client, and I frequently use tools and techniques based on solution-focused brief therapy, and cognitive behavioral approaches

I am credentialed through the Michigan Certification Board of Addictions Professionals as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) since 2004.  I previously earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Ferris State University and a Master of Arts degree in criminal justice from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I have over 23 years of experience in the social services and criminal justice field including group counseling/facilitation, individual case management, individual counseling, and outpatient substance use disorder treatment.

Tammy has always had a passion for helping others live their best life. After raising a blended family, she decided to further her education. Trying to find something that would combine her desire to help others with her love for horses, she choose therapy.

Tammy graduated from Oakland University in 2021 with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She then took a job working with a non-profit with a focus on substance abuse for a year before starting her private practice in early 2022. She divides her time between working with horses and providing therapy for those in need.

Tammy strongly believes people have what they need within themselves to work through the challenges they are struggling with. Having a safe place to process and work through issues is key to successful therapy. Building a trusting and safe relationship with your therapist is important as well.

Tammy uses a person-centered approach with motivational interviewing in her practice. She believes in continuous learning, and her focus is leading her into becoming specialized in trauma. She also works with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, and provides life coaching.

Tammy has her LLPC which means she has a limited license. She works under a supervisor that supports the work she does with clients. While Tammy works to receive her full license, she is able to accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

I grew up in a rural area in the thumb of Michigan, an environment that taught me early on about the power of community and human connection. My formative years in nonprofit work deepened my understanding of communal support and the importance of community care. I worked alongside individuals and families in my community through advocacy and supportive services. During my time at the nonprofit, I worked with survivors of crime and violence to ensure that all victims of crime, regardless of the nature of their victimization, have access to essential services and advocacy to aid in their recovery and to navigate the complexities of the criminal justice system. My time at the nonprofit also served as a catalyst for nurturing my passion for social advocacy, ultimately leading me to pursue a degree in counseling. My background merges nonprofit involvement, social justice advocacy, victim service provision, and licensed professional counseling. This blend crafts a holistic approach that bridges personal support with broader societal change. Drawing from each area's strength, I aim to foster healing, champion justice, and empower individuals and communities alike. This multifaceted perspective enriches the therapeutic relationship, providing depth and understanding tailored to everyone's experiences, while also acknowledging the broader contexts that shape their lives. 
In our telehealth sessions, we'll engage closely, combining the intimacy of traditional therapy with the convenience of your preferred environment. My role is to listen, understand, and support, always adopting a non-judgmental approach. As someone who is neurodiverse, I have a deep connection to the various neurodiverse communities and firmly believe in understanding neurodiversity as a natural variation rather than a "disorder". During our time together, we'll explore a variety of counseling techniques tailored to your needs, including EMDR, an effective approach even in a telehealth setting. I also draw upon principles from WPATH and stand firm in my commitment to the LGBTQIA+, gender, HAES, and ENM/poly communities. I champion the notion that individual agency and autonomy, when exercised without harm to others, are paramount for self-actualization.
Throughout my life, the influence of societal expectations around body image has been profound. From the days in elementary school, when I felt compelled to shrink both physically and in voice, to later years where exercise became less about joy and more about retribution, I've experienced the burdensome nature of these pressures. As I journeyed further into understanding myself, the principles of HAES (Health At Every Size) offered a fresh perspective, challenging the restrictive eating habits and constant scale-checking that diet culture had ingrained in me. This transformation hasn't made me immune to struggles, but it has provided me with tools to approach them with greater compassion and a focus on intuitive eating. I've come to recognize and critique the wider harm that diet culture perpetuates, leading me to a more peaceful and holistic relationship with my body. And with this newfound perspective, my mission has solidified: to support others in navigating their own path towards a healthier relationship with their bodies and food.
