About

No matter what age you are or what stage of life you are in therapy can offer support if you are feeling anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed. I am a neurodiverse-affirming, LGBTQIA-affirmative, and culturally aware therapist who offers authenticity and a space where you will be seen, heard and respected as an authority and expert in your life with your own personal strengths and challenges. Therapy can help you learn to understand and embrace your identity, find compassion for yourself, develop coping strategies for living in a stressful world, and help you create your own unique balance.
As a neurodivergent therapist, I can offer you lived experience and a safe space where you can enter therapy as yourself unmasked and unashamed. I have 15 years of experience offering children, teens, adults, and families nonjudgemental support. I specialize in Neurodivergency - Autism, ADHD, OCD, LGBTQIA support, Anxiety, Trauma, and Postpartum Support.
We try to take the stress out of therapy and can help you understand your insurance and we make it easy for you to schedule an appointment. At this time Heartstone Guidance Center is offering primarily online therapy but we do have office space available at our downtown Grand Rapids office for in-person therapy on a case-by-case basis.
