About

Aloha! Thinking about navigating a new course for tranquility or reaching the port of a "one day" goal. Me too! One day I'd like a practice in Hawaii, for now beautiful West Michigan. Charting a new course of direction is the first step, to sustainable emotional health. I help many suffering with life challenges, "POI", Hawaiian for sticky situations. As a Master Level licensed professional, I work to remove the "POI" helping you reclaim your life from stress & dysfunction. If life's storms seem to capsize your every effort for peace, let's talk. Together we can navigate safe passage to a tranquil future.
As a Licensed Counselor, I specialize assisting with challenging life stressors, the "Poi " (i.e. addictions, divorce, grief, loss, low self-esteem, suicide, substance abuse recovery, and vocational counseling.) My program charts aptitude, education, & heart in finding your life-giving career or your freedom to open new adventure.
Change is hard to navigate alone. Change results from the efforts of both client and counselor. I have studied, and journeyed first hand through these tumults "POI." I invite you to my Safe Harbour of judgment-free counseling. Experience your path to healing. (now serving "Oceana and Newago" counties, Evening appointments available)
