Life has many challenges that we struggle with, many coming internally from our own minds. I can help navigate you through your journey to overcome intrusive, negative self-talk, low self-esteem and self-worth, trauma, and to assist with changing that inner voice that tells you, “you have to be perfect.” Using art therapy as well as CBT techniques, I work with students and professionals who are struggling with identity, life transitions, depression, and anxiety. Together we can work together to gain insight, develop coping skills and mindfulness techniques, defeat the negative self-talk, and create a life worth living.

I enjoy working with individuals struggling with chronic illness, eating disorders, weight loss, anxiety, depression, interpersonal concerns, and general life stress. I understand that it can be extremely stressful to manage emotional or physical health concerns in our fast paced, high pressure society. Throughout my training, I have admired the people I have worked with who are making transitions and want to examine themselves, their past, and their interpersonal environment to make changes that work for them.

Loneliness, fear, and worry are powerful feelings that can keep us disconnected from those around us. You might notice yourself thinking “things have to change” or “I can’t do this anymore.” Perhaps you feel like you’ve tried everything and are exhausted from the effort; you’ve tried to talk to others but walk away feeling misunderstood and lonely. It could even be that the fear of sharing your story and experiences feels overwhelming. Counseling is an opportunity to experience the opposite; it’s a space to connect with someone who listens without judgment or distraction.

Over the past fifteen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Over the past year I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

Living with difficulty and tension with your teen can be challenging and exhausting. Your world and theirs seem to collide on a daily basis. Seeing a counselor with your teen can cause a dynamic shift in your family. You’re dealing with guilt, anger, and frustration and fear the loss of the relationship you once knew. It’s common for teens to express their independence and autonomy, but this seems unhealthy. If your teen is acting out or having emotional problems, I help parents find innovative ways to help manage and rebuild loving relationships with them.

Therapy doesn't have to last forever but the benefits will. Most issues people face are relational in nature. There are emotions and behaviors that are problematic. These might include feelings of shame, discontentment, apathy, anger or even numbness. The behaviors might range from avoidance to compulsive and addictive. Are you experiencing problems with yourself or others? In therapy, you'll learn to be challenged and gain tools to handle difficult feelings while making decisions to do the hard work to change behaviors.

I work well with clients who want to make changes in self-defeating behaviors, including addictions. My counseling style is client-centered; respectful, non-judgemental and focused on helping people move into changes in ways that make sense to them. I teach mindfulness techniques to help clients build self-awareness for emotional balance. I can help people make sense of the role of spirituality in their lives, including healing from religious abuse. I do not promote a particular religious perspective and only discuss spirituality if it is important from the client's point of view.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Belknap Lookout, Grand Rapids can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
