Are you a young professional who feels stuck in life, held back by anxiety, or lack of motivation because you don’t know where you want to go? Are you an athlete and know you could perform better if you were just more calm and in control of your emotions? Or maybe you have a child who is struggling with emotional regulation, flexibility and anxiety. I work with each of these populations to help the young professional thrive, the athlete maintain mental and emotional stability while performing and the child who’s anxious to calm fear and hyper vigilance.

As a therapist I work to create a safe, empathetic, judgment-free and welcoming space for you to process difficult experiences, manage life transitions and gain insight. While I have been a counselor for about 3 years, I have been working with trauma survivors and building on that knowledge for almost 9 years. My foundation as a therapist was built on advocacy work for survivors of sexual violence. Additionally, I have worked on several college campuses with students as they manage life transitions and stressors that come with this. Lastly, I love working with young adults in processing grief and loss, identity concerns and more.

Do you struggle with an Addiction, Anxiety or Trauma? Are you finding yourself feeling disconnected or unhappy in your relationship? Or wanting to find emotional connection? Maybe your mind races often or is there a tightness in your chest, and you can't escape the negative self talk? You can achieve relief from anxiety. I work with Addiction and Trauma as well, and in my work with those struggling with Addiction, it is important to understand it is not a choice. It is a way to avoid and numb unwanted feelings or trauma. Remember, Trauma is what happened to you, it is not you. You can heal from trauma, and recovery is possible.

Experiencing trauma of any kind can leave us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. It can stop us in our tracks and upend life as we know it. Although it can seem impossible, healing from trauma is possible. My hope is to help others go from surviving to thriving despite life’s challenges. Facing trauma can be lonely and confusing, but you don't have to sort through it on your own. Trauma is complicated and one can experience a range of emotions such as: anger, grief, fear, sadness, anxiety and guilt. I would love to help you work through these feelings and move towards healing and peace.

Art Therapy what a fantastic way of communication. You don't have to be an artist; you just need to trust the process. Sometimes words cannot express what we want to say or think; through art, you can.

Therapy? It is difficult to make the decision to enter into therapy but even more important to find a therapist in which you feel comfortable. Understanding these feelings of others have allowed me to be in practice for over fifteen years. Making the first step to call can be a difficult process and I pride myself in empathizing with this difficulty. I have made it part of my practice serving children, adolescents, and adults to take the time to relate to each individual on an individual basis and attempt to make each client to feel comfortable making this difficult step.

Being heard and validated are two of the most powerful avenues to feeling a sense of belonging and worth. Unfortunately, we run into situations in life that shut us down, tell us our life experience doesn't count, and we leave those situations feeling empty and uncertain about what we've done wrong. Through therapy, we learn to find ourselves through our values and we learn new skills to navigate the hills and valleys of life so that when those situations come up, we can come out of them stronger and more sure of ourselves. I look forward to walking that path alongside you while you discover how you can have a full life and thrive.

As a Master’s level clinician I strive to help clients improve their lives and learn new skills, techniques, ways of viewing themselves, and the world around them in a way that may reduce pain and suffering. I frequently use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to help empower and guide individuals in their healing journey. I believe we are all capable of finding relief, strength, and a new way of perceiving ourselves and our environment, despite the difficult and unique challenges we face.

Counseling can seem quite terrifying, sharing your heart and mind with a stranger in hopes of finding something better, something different. Whether you're struggling to find an identity in the chaos of life, anxious about tomorrow, or feeling stuck and hopeless, having your own personal GPS through a counseling relationship can make a huge difference between driving in circles or discovering vitality and joy in the journey. With a MA in Counseling specializing in trauma, a MA in Theology, and currently working on her PhD in Counseling Education, you can be sure to get the very best, up to date counseling available.

It would be hard to argue that our lives haven't been a lot more complicated over the last few years. Whether you are a child or teen dealing with peer pressure or the stressors at school, a stay at home parent trying to manage everyone's busy schedules, a working professional balancing family life and the stress a job can bring, a single or divorced parent struggling to get through each day, a young adult looking for direction in life, or part of a family trying to raise your kids in this increasingly complex world, I have extensive experience in all of these areas.

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.

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.
