Support, encouragement, and space to breathe. We all need these to get us through life. From the daily anxiety of tasks and relationships to deep trauma. It can feel suffocating. I would like to provide a safe place to heal and process. To hold onto hope when you are unable to have any. To lift you up in support of your goals for yourself and your relationships. I am ready to invest in you. My hope is for us to work together to identify what you need and to find ways to best meet those needs. I specialize in addressing depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, preparation for marriage, post-traumatic stress, and grief.

I believe everyone is worthy of dignity and respect, to be heard and seen, free of judgment. My role as your therapist is to be a partner for you as you navigate through your life, offering tools along the way. I primarily work with adolescents and adults in a one-on-one setting via telehealth. My typical clients are those who are experiencing a variety of personal concerns, such as healing from traumatic experiences, wrestling with emotional and mental health concerns, and working through relationship problems or family stress; recovering from suicide attempts, exploring their identities, making career decisions, and much more.

I believe that relationships are at the core of any effective therapy. It is important to me that the children and families I work with feel heard and respected. I am flexible in my approaches and how I deliver therapy. This allows me to be able to focus on the strengths of the child and family. I utilize interests, abilities, and passions to provide services that are engaging, comfortable, and impactful. I believe that children and adolescents thrive best in therapy when they are allowed to express themselves in the way that is most natural for them.

Thank you for visiting my post! I believe people come to therapy equipped with the tools needed to flourish in life and relationships. Sometimes the trials and tribulations of life get in the way. Unresolved fear(s), the past and loss can become barriers. I wish to assist those with the desire to grow in some area of their personal life and are willing to explore how to reach their potential. My role is to come alongside and help build solutions that support the individual's best hopes.

Do you ever feel disconnected from yourself and the world around you? Do you notice feeling lost or stuck? Does your mind seem scattered, making it difficult to focus on one thing? Do you think poorly of yourself or hear a relentless inner critic? Maybe you're controlled by stress, anxiety, worry, fear, trauma, depression, grief, anger, distraction, exhaustion, loneliness, etc. If so, welcome to being human! I believe you have everything within yourSelf to become who you wish to BE (“We are human beings not human doings.” – Dalai Lama). YOU are all you have been waiting for so come exactly as you are to be seen, heard, & known.

In today's environment, there are so many pressures on individuals, kids, and their 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.

*NOW TAKING NEW CLIENTS EMAIL TO SCHEDULE* 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. Lets flip the script and heal your wounds.

Sharing your story takes courage, but can be one of the most powerful aspects in guiding you towards positive change. Therapy offers you this opportunity. It is a time where it is all about you. Just you and your story. My approach has been described as nonjudgmental, empathic, and supportive. My goal is to help you be present with your story, where you can be witnessed and understood in a compassionate way and therefore, helping you to be more connected to yourself, others, and the world around you.

The relationship between you and I is a key component of your treatment outcome. I believe that this therapeutic relationship is founded in a spirit of collaboration, an emotional bond and an agreement on goals and tasks. Two main characteristics of therapy are critical to the building of this therapeutic alliance: expertise and empathy. I am confident in my ability to help resolve any issues in a satisfying manner, prepared in both theory and practice, clear in my thoughts, ideas, and logical in the problem solving process. Of equal importance, I am accepting, understanding and genuinely interested in you and your needs.

Life can get messy. Maybe you found yourself in a situation you didn't choose for yourself, or maybe you can't seem to shake that gnawing anxiety or the voice that says "you will never be enough". Perhaps you found yourself reeling in the wake of someone else's choices, or maybe even your own. Or maybe you are a parent watching helplessly as you see your son or daughter struggle. That's where I come in. I value the opportunity to be invited into life's most fragile areas and walk alongside you toward freedom, wholeness and hope.

I value every encounter with an individual. I am grateful to be in a field, as a Therapist, where I can enjoy divine connections daily - thanks to the incredible courage of people. Specifically, thanks to a “yes” to the journey of growth, healing, and one's readiness to get "unstuck." Although I believe that the therapy office is a place where much of an individual’s healing and recovery from life challenges takes place, I also understand that the real tests happen outside of those four walls. I want to help you to prepare for those tests, cope, build healthy relationships, and affirm yourself in the positive.

Life can be challenging. Sometimes the obstacles you face are relatively simple and you can work through them on your own, while other times they are more than you feel equipped to manage alone. I believe this is exactly what therapy is intended for. Whether you’re facing a normal life adjustment such as a new child, a new job, navigating the break-up of a relationship, or significant conflict within your family, I am here to help you process through your experience. I strive to create a space of mutual respect, trust, and awareness where you can begin the work of restoration.

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.
