I like to the heart of the matter quickly and then work with my clients to co-creative solutions tailored to their specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' The deeper work may be related to the past, but it also could be doing a deeper dive into your current life and finding healthier ways to cope. I am trained in leadership assessment and coaching and I consult with family-owned businesses.

Life presents us with challenges and opportunities that sometimes require consultation. Often, change and healing are facilitated by assistance from caring others. I have repeatedly witnessed the resiliency of the human spirit. I am eager to meet with clients motivated for change and curious about the possibility of having more satisfying lives. I believe that psychotherapy requires trust and a working relationship. I am a compassionate listener and tailor my approach to best match the uniqueness of each client. I approach problems from a strengths-based, holistic perspective that considers a client's relevant biological, developmental, social, and cultural factors.

If you're searching for a therapist who will encourage you to stay in counseling for years while holding your hand singing camp songs, I suggest you keep looking. But if you prefer a trained clinician whose approach to counseling is goal-oriented and solution-focused, give me a call. You can trust that I will be sensitive and empathetic, but since you are hiring me to do a job, I will be directive in identifying the best approach to solve your problems. I'm qualified to treat a wide variety of issues (see the list below), but the majority of my clinical practice focuses on Relational/Marriage issues as well as Anxiety/Depression.

Are you feeling stuck? Perhaps you're grieving a loss, feeling hopeless, wrestling with the effects of traumatic experiences, frozen by anxiety, or boxed in by shame. If this resonates with you, please know that you are not alone. Unraveling your story in the context of a therapeutic relationship can often be the experience needed to move forward. Being met right where you are by a safe, curious, and experienced therapist can restore hope, cultivate insight, heal wounds, build positive momentum, and lead to lasting transformation.

Hello. I'm looking forward to being a part of your journey toward happiness and health. In the Great Psychotherapy Debate (Wampold, 2001), studies demonstrated that if there are two groups of people with similar problems, those who receive counseling will be better off than 79% of those who do not receive counseling. Counseling can bring relief, resolution, clarity, freedom, or help you overcome a challenge. My counseling style is encouraging, empowering, nonjudgmental, and thorough. I am trained in many different approaches to the counseling process and I will work to customize a plan that works for you.

The foundation of my practice is based on the 4 principles of Empathy, Encouragement, Awareness, and Empowerment. I believe the objective of counseling is to help individuals make sense out of emotional chaos. This comes through primarily understanding two things, 1. We are products of our environment, we do what we know. 2. We all have the power to change unhealthy or unwanted behavior. My experience as a Crisis Counselor as well as an individual counselor has given me experience with just about any issue. Please let me know what you're struggling with and we can determine together if I can be supportive.

While life can be joyful and beautiful, at times it can also be painful and lonely. At times like this it can be helpful to have someone who's been there - who's experienced addiction and significant grief and loss - to share the journey through hard times. Adding to my personal experience and using up to date, research based techniques I accept clients where they are and help them get to where they want to go. Whether recovering from addiction and/or mental illness, resolving grief, or just coping with life's difficulties you don't have to journey alone.

I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1983. Since that time, my focus has been on helping individuals, couples and groups ascertain and realize their goals. Using a direct approach,my clients appreciate the stability and consistency I provide to their overall progress and definitive improvement in their lives. I believe therapy is certainly a process for overcoming obstacles and making sense of one's history. It is also a vehicle to explore and decide what is you really want if life.

These are unprecidented times!!! Are you feeling anxious and immobilized? Irritable and overly reactive? These feelings can often be "normal responses" to the abnormal times we find ourselves in. Trying to cope with the constant uncertainty and unrest during this Pandemic, can leave you feeling traumatized. We are being advised to "socially distance", even from family and friends-the very attachments that sustain us through the viscitudes of life. Struggling with Financial stress? Social justice issues? The Pandemic has permeated every aspect of our lives-our minds, our bodies and sense of hope about the future. I can help!

I work as a therapist because I believe we can experience real healing in our lives. The broken world in which we live frequently leaves scars and wounds. And we often wound others. As a Christian therapist I believe God heals significantly. I work with Christians and non Christians alike with respect for individual values and beliefs. Therapy begins with developing a respectful, trusting relationship. The client and therapist begin a journey to enable the client to reconcile, their past, their present, and their beliefs. It can enable them to work toward future goals successfully.

Your anxieties and worries are controlling too much of your life. That anxious inner voice won’t quiet down, and it’s just so convincing - you're frustrated that you listen to it, but you're scared not to. What if you ignore it and your worst fears come true? You know it’s irrational, but your anxiety just won’t let your brain believe the truth. You overthink so many things, and your inner dialog is exhausting you.

Being at war with yourself and your body is exhausting. Maybe it started with your first diet in your teens or maybe it didn't start until later in life dealing with chronic pain or illness, or something else. You are sick of suffering and feeling like your body is an endless problem to be solved. It is hard to feel hopeful. Psychotherapy with me can help you deepen self-trust, self-care and self-acceptance. I have specialized training in trauma-informed approaches, including EMDR and Body Trust® which inform my holistic approach. I can support you to work through your past, honor your present and envision your future.

At times life can be overwhelming and it is difficult to know where to turn for help. Circumstances may seem out of control and do not make sense. Seeking support from a compassionate therapist can be useful. As a therapist I take into account the whole person and help you through your concerns. I offer a non-judgmental, supportive environment for you to express your full experience. I want you to feel safe knowing that you are being listened to and valued. Together, we can process, develop coping methods, and grow your inner strength to face what challenges have caused you to feel distress or concern. Note: See my COVID19 message.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in East Grand Rapids?

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
