My main areas of focus are trauma, anxiety, first responder challenges, PTSD and compassion fatigue. I also offer EMDR as well. I believe every person is unique and ultimately the expert in their own life. The body and mind are intricately connected and need to be examined together, to accurately assess and reach a resolution for life's demands.

We find ourselves traveling down the same roads all the time, same route to work, school, and even family and friends' houses. Sometimes we become so used to the way we are living that change is often difficult to achieve. I believe this is because we are stuck in ways of thinking because we have done it for as long as we can remember. "That's just the way I am." If you are looking to find a new way of doing things because you are unsatisfied or stuck in a rut, I would love to help you navigate change.

Where do you begin? How do you choose a counselor? Seeking help and counseling is a courageous act. I’m glad you’re here! Compassionately and collaboratively, I can help you reduce worry, deepen relationships, foster acceptance, improve mood, adapt to change, navigate interpersonal concerns, etc. I’m here to help you hold a “flashlight” to your life: highlight aspects that may be too hard to look at on your own, gain clarity in an area where you’ve shined the light on for quite some time but can’t quite make sense of it yet, and illuminate skills, resources and values that have been muddled for you.

Hello! I’m a licensed clinical social worker with 30+ years of experience. I have worked in school social work, foster care, adoption, adolescent residential treatment, crisis assessment at Pine Rest Hospital, and outpatient treatment. I have been in private practice for 14 years. It is my privilege to listen to, and be with, people in their stories. Making sense of our narrative is a fundamental component to a healthy mind and spirit. And making peace with our perfectly imperfect, and unique version of humanity is essential for our emotional life and our thought space. It would be my privilege to hear your story. Peace, Amy

Just as we sometimes need help caring for physical aches and pains, sometimes we need help improving our mental health. I am passionate about helping others look inward to learn more about themselves and connect with their inner voice through the power of therapy. At its heart, therapy is as powerful as what you put into it. Being vulnerable can often feel daunting, but by working together, my goal is to help you build the confidence you need to bravely take the reins when you feel like the life you want is just out of reach.

Since completing my master's degree and post-grad training at UM in 2009, I've worked in crisis intervention, inpatient and community-based settings. In these contexts, as well as in my own life, I've found that all of us complicated, unique humans share some basic common goals. In the words of the poet Hafiz, we all want "to love more, and be happy." I've also found that with some bravery, strength and wisdom, the difficulties we face today can serve as catalysts toward positive change and a more meaningful, fulfilling life.

Life can be messy, unpredictable, wonderful, and terrible. Sometimes there is loss and hopeless. Other times there is joy and hope. Therapy is a space where you can explore all of life's extremes and constants, as well as the potential extremes and constants of yourself. I am here to offer an empathetic, non-judgmental, safe space for you to notice, explore, and dive into parts of yourself that may have been unheard, stuck in the past, embraced in isolation, or remained quiet.

Thanks for visiting my profile. If you are considering therapy/ counseling, there is one thing I’ve learned to be true. When it comes to delivering accurate evaluations and providing high caliber therapy/counseling, experience definitely counts. Nothing is more critical than experience. I've had 30+ years of experience working with many people who have struggled with a wide range of challenges and problems. I earned a Masters from University of Michigan and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University. I've worked in outpatient and office practices. I worked with college students when I directed a college counseling center.

Life is a complex journey that can bring both amazing highs and life-altering lows. We can be faced with difficult challenges, unexpected changes, and raw emotions that our current coping skills aren’t equipped to manage in a healthy way. While I believe we’re all doing the best we can with what we know, there can be times when support from an outside source can help us learn how to thrive through those lows versus just survive.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Grand Rapids?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
