As a licensed psychotherapist in Michigan, Harper specializes in helping adults and teens improve self-compassion and self-acceptance, strengthen self-worth, regulate emotions, and develop mindfulness.

  • Mindful Self-Compassion: Harper is an expert in compassion-focused therapy and meditation, and was trained in the first-ever cohort of the Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy (SCIP) certificate program.
  • Mood Disorders: Anxiety, Depression, Social Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and other issues: Self-critical thoughts can trigger emotional responses that are incorrectly labeled as “mood disorders.” With mindful self-compassion, you will learn to reduce self-judgment, free yourself from fears of unworthiness, stop over-achieving and perfectionism, and be more calm and confident.
  • Childhood Trauma Recovery: Based on the science of trauma and attachment theory, Harper helps clients understand how their neurobiology was affected by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and chronic developmental trauma — and how to heal.
  • Difficult Relationships: Learn how to heal and recover from narcissistic abuse, difficult personalities or toxic personalities in your life, including those with Bi-Polar Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Anti-Social Personality Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Child and Family Psychotherapy using Attachment-Focused Family Therapy
  • Parenting Education to improve Child Behaviors and Emotional Maturity (for issues with ADHD, Oppositional and Defiant Disorder)
  • Mindfulness Meditation Training to improve self-compassion, emotional regulation, and self-acceptance
  • Assertiveness Training
  • Anger Management using Mindful Self-Compassion
  • Recovery from Abusive Relationships and Domestic Violence
