Our Royal Oak Therapists

Therapists Who Care

Many research studies indicate that most important factor in effective psychotherapy is a strong, positive relationship between the therapist and the client. Bearing this in mind, it is critical for you to find a good fit when selecting a therapist.


Each mental health professional chosen for the Transcendence team was selected due to not only excellent professional skills, but also their extraordinary level of empathy and compassion toward their clients. We truly care about are clients and are personally invested in the relationships we build with you.

Owner,  PhD

Licensed Psychologist

My priority is to treat each person with compassion, respect, and kindness. I strive to help my clients to get to the root of their challenges using experiential emotional processing techniques to make lasting changes in their lives and to help them help themselves over a lifetime.


I believe it is never too late to accomplish your life goals. I have 19 years experience in helping people with depression, anxiety, bipolar, addictions, chronic illness, HIV/AIDS, grief, death/dying, post traumatic stress, adjustment to disability, dissociative disorder and sexual and gender identity issues (LGBTQIA).


I have a strong background in helping people recover from dysfunctional families and traumatic childhoods. I enjoy working with adults of all ages, including senior citizens and am experienced in working with first responders - i.e. Police, Fire, EMS, teachers and military and war veterans.

Dr. Williams' caseload is currently full.

I believe that within each and every one of us exists the beauty of the human soul and that there are times in one’s life that both the soul along with the emotions need healing.


I have specialized in working with those traumatized by sexual abuse and past trauma for 15 years. I believe that with the appropriate love and guidance, victims can be lead
from their personal darkness into a healthy light.


I have both a Masters Degree in clinical psychology as well as a Masters Degree in theology and I offer a therapeutic approach to address the entirety of each person. I reach each person where they are on their
individual journey with the goal of assisting them to embrace their authenticity and unique differences. My clinical specialties include treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and sexual abuse.

If you feel unsure, please call and talk with me about setting up your first appointment. The single most important factor in successful psychotherapy is the relationship between patient and therapist; effective therapy starts from the moment you walk in the door.


You need a therapist who will listen, work with you to attain your goals and be supportive and patient. I work with a diverse clientele of individuals and couples on grief/bereavement, depression, life change, conflict resolution, childhood and adult trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sexual abuse, anxiety, substance abuse and sexuality issues (LGBTQ).

Emotional growth, recovery, self-awareness and a healthier, more balanced life are just some of the possible outcomes available if you set your mental health as a priority. I believe it is never too late to learn to be comfortable with yourself, learn to embrace your value and work to improve aspects of your life.

Limited License Psychologist

Therapy can be an invaluable asset to assist us in actualizing our goals and aspirations in many areas of our lives. Through analyzing and changing the patterns and habits that lead us to self-defeat, we allow ourselves to become more confident, effective, and successful.

I have been practicing for over 15 years in a variety of settings. I have experience with anxiety, trauma, depression, bipolar, self-harm, psychotic symptoms, abuse and neglect, and domestic violence. I take an eclectic approach to therapy based on the individual's needs and preferences.

I specialize in self-care, development of effective communication skills and support, self-confidence and self-esteem building, and working through difficult decisions and situations.

As your therapist, I will be your ally as you guide the journey through self-exploration and evolution to the person you strive to be. I take pride in creating an atmosphere in which you can feel safe in discussing even the most difficult topics and know that you are accepted unconditionally. Celebrate every success, even the smallest!

Life comes with unanticipated twists and turns that can leave us confused, hurt and off balance.


Effective therapy includes experience, empathy, non-judgment and the knowledge and tools to effectively navigate life’s difficult issues.  It’s also about having genuine concern for you, the client, and your pain. I have over 27 years of experience in treating adults and adolescents suffering from anxiety and depression. I also have over 10 years of experience working with adolescents with learning difficulties and also in performing psychological evaluations for the Wayne County Courts. My experience also includes working with couples and victims of sexual and physical abuse. With my extensive background in neuropsychology, I can create a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan to help you meet your therapeutic goals.


I look at my role as one of helping you to find your truth and your voice. I look forward to working with you.

I am trained in Humanistic Psychology which uses various modalities to meet you where you are and attend to your specific needs. I believe the therapeutic alliance between client and therapist is a powerful tool that promotes healing, personal growth, and overall wellness.


My goal is to create an environment in which you feel safe discussing all that you need to: The good things, the bad things, the ugly truth. All topics are welcome here. We'll work together to get you to a better place: mind, body & spirit. I offer flexible hours and online appointments to accommodate busy schedules.
