Building resiliency isn't always about overcoming the mountain sized obstacles. Sometimes, its about overcoming the desire to stay in bed all day, or have popcorn for dinner the fifth day in a row, or have just one more drink at the end of the day. Trauma, and its positive counter-part- Resiliency, is within each of us. Cultivating a positive support system and partnership is all about accessing the natural power you hold within yourself. Within each individual, and couple, embracing resiliency is possible. Learn more at www.resiliencyresourcesconsulting.com

I am a licensed therapist with over 23 years of experience helping others to navigate life's journey. I offer a judgment free environment to overcome life's challenges and provide a safe haven for self-discovery. Through this process my clients have recognized their ability to heal and gain a greater insight into self-empowerment. I specialize in overcoming trauma, relationships, anxiety, depression, addiction (alcohol & drugs) and academic/career issues with individuals and families. I have found that how we perceive ourselves is our reality; however, together, we can expand that perspective to see the bigger picture.

I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families on a wide range of personal and family-adjustment concerns. Some people have a clear idea of the problem at the outset. Others simply feel troubled and are having difficulty coping with daily challenges. In all cases, I begin with a close consideration of what is known about the difficulty and of factors that may have contributed to its development. In doing so, I encourage a spirit of collaboration in identifying a treatment focus that includes utilization of personal strengths and capabilities necessary to reestablish a better sense of overall wellbeing.

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.

There is no one more put together than a person in recovery. Living in recovery is working a program of mental health, staying clean and sober, and living one day at a time. With that being said, each person’s specific program looks different, with the common factor of living a balanced life of being grateful, mindful, spiritual, and finding a sense of community among other recovering individuals. My specialty areas are addictions, mental health, trauma, codependency issues, and how these affect you and those who love you.

For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. When there is loss or trauma in a child's life they can often have difficult or challenging relationships with others. Children who are dealing with great pain are often operating in a mode of survival which can make it very hard to allow people to get close. Family Therapy helps them learn how to build stronger and closer connections in spite of the painful things that happened to them.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Grand Rapids Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
