Announcement icon During this challenging time, please note that I will be offering tele therapy options. Please contact me at 616-334-3726 to make an appt.
When a client comes to his/her first session, I often share that they have done the hardest part: to make that initial call and to show up. From there, I look at it as my responsibility to help one feel safe sharing feelings/experiences so that they improve how they currently feel and create the life they want to get excited about living in the future. My approach is direct, simple, empathetic and effective. I have more than 20 years of experience providing therapy to adults and adolescents who are facing significant challenges/crisis' as well as those who are seeking personal growth.
Studies show that the biggest indicator of success is the relationship you develop with your therapist. I have a warm, engaging style and am committed to offering a judgment-free place to work through grief/sadness.I work from a strengths-based perspective and believe my work helps people enhance the meaning in their lives.
Services include: short-term therapy focused on problem solving and crisis management and longer-term, depth psychotherapy which helps people make more lasting changes in their lives I am here to help.
