"Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!"

"You are entitled to joy, peace, and satisfaction. I will help you accept and love who you are now and become who you want to be. The greatest obstacle that most of us face is our own self-deprecation and self-loathing. I have personal experience with relationship, depression, and self-esteem issues. I will use that along with my professional training and experience. We will look for patterns in your life that have led to the choices you have made and help you make healthy choices now and in the future."

I am a licensed social worker who has been in private practice for over twenty years. I have seen that growth and positive change can occur in therapy, and I offer a safe and supportive setting where new insights and understanding can be gained. That first step, making the contact with a therapist, can be the hardest step, but it can also be incredibly rewarding."

"Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in 49684 using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.
