By way of a multitude of evidence-based practices, assessments, and appropriate diagnoses my aspiration is to assist individuals in becoming more effective and self-reliant when in the process of resolving problems. I am passionate about promoting such elements of counseling as prevention, advocacy, and empowerment. It is also a strong personal value of mine to support and protect vulnerable individuals from harm. My intention in therapy is to develop a secure and reassuring space to uplift clients as they work towards their personal goals along their mental health and wellness journey.

I believe that all clients come to counseling with a personal story that includes important relationships, significant events, and beliefs about themselves and the world. Counseling involves understanding how our stories shape the way we view ourselves, approach challenges, and relate to others. I feel privileged to listen to clients’ stories and help them work towards their own goals for wellness and change.

The clients that I have had the opportunity to work with are among the bravest people I have met. It is that courage that leads people to reach out and ask for help with what they are unable to do themselves. I am humbled to be a part of that process. Using a combination of cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness, empathy and levity, we can work through issues of anxiety, depression, and eating disorders of any kind.

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 majority of my practice is working with women and "women's issues." Many women seek guidance and counsel as they deal with the stages and changes in their lives. Childbirth through menopause, there are challenges that can provoke thought, action or concerns. Trauma from childhood sexual abuse can cause depression and anxiety. I have worked with many women concerning these issues and with couples struggling with latent affects of abuse. I also work with couple marital issues, parenting issues and teens 12 years and older.

Our lives can be chaotic and we all need support to make sense of the chaos. Challenges in life can be opportunities for growth, and that growth is tough work to do alone. Whether that chaos manifests itself in a battle with depression or anxiety, challenges in a relationship, or navigating life following a transition, loss, or diagnoses, hope and healing are possible.

Not interested in taking medications? At The Well Being, I provide my clients with 10+ years of experience as a therapist, and an opportunity for them to begin using cardiovascular exercise as an effective mental health "medication" . At The Well Being, I offer traditional outpatient counseling services, largely based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (I was trained at the Beck Institute), while also providing the means for exercise to become a key component of your treatment. This is an alternative evidence-based approach for those who aren't interested in taking medications, or a more comprehensive alternative for those who are.

If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own. Not understanding your worth, you may struggle following your dreams or have a career where you feel overworked and under valued. Let's flip the script, heal your wounds, and accept the person you are.

In today's environment, there are so many pressures on individuals, kids, and parents that sometimes it seems overwhelming. Together we can find solutions to make coping with life's stressors easier and more effective. Therapy can help by having someone to talk with, process the stress, and generate solutions unique to the needs of individuals, children, and families. I believe we can work collaboratively to achieve a positive and supportive place where mental and emotional health can thrive.

Each person is on a unique life journey. I look forward to learning where you are on your journey and how I can help you create the life you desire.

If you are at a low point on your journey, therapy provides an opportunity to sort through the complexities, decrease the feeling of being overwhelmed and make real progress on your current life challenges.

What type of Grand Rapids mental health professional is right for me?
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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Grand Rapids?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. 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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
