I have many years of experience with clinical assessment, school based therapy, family therapy, child and adolescent development, teaching parenting skills and positive proactive coping skills, in addition to treating a full range of emotional and behavioral disorders.
Practicing therapy since 2002, with children, adolescents, families and adults, I have been able to consistently use clinical experience to find flexible solutions even when others have burned out. With honest and direct feedback, I provide a safe and compassionate environment for clients to grow and make positive changes. I will be forthright about difficult decisions and work tirelessly to find the best, if not easiest, solutions. My consistent concern for the client, rich clinical background, high ethical standards, and willingness to tackle difficult tasks have allowed me to improve clients' emotional and behavioral stability.

I have a specialty in treating adolescents, and in consulting with parents around child and adolescent concerns.
Psychotherapy can help you with worries, anxiety, depression, and troubled relationships. I can assist you in becoming more constructive in your approach to life; you will discover in treatment abilities that you posess but that you might not even have known about which, when they are known to you, help you to be in a stronger position to feel more confidence and comfort dealing with the challenging aspects of your life. My therapeutic method consists of a process of problem solving with a focus on exploring ones thinking, imagining, feeling and experiencing.

My clients say things like...I am overwhelmed with stress. My anxiety is out of control. Does depression ever get better? I want to die. How did my relationship end up here? When does the pain of loss stop? Why can't my kids, spouse, ex just cooperate? My teenager is out of control. My parents just don't get it! The flashbacks are real. Will it ever get any better? Real people. Real-life. Real issues. Talking to someone helps. That is why I am here.

Sad, Worried, and Stubborn Teenagers; Rocky Relationships; Worried Parents; and Stressed Individuals. These are the people I help. You probably already know what the problem is and what you don’t want anymore. You don’t want to be sad, you don’t want to be in this rut, or you're tired of arguing with your teenager or spouse about the same things over and over. Trying to solve it yourself can be like trying to eat a huge pizza that hasn’t been cut into slices-- it's overwhelming and you don’t know where to start. My job is to help you break the solution into pieces so you can decide where to start and what your next steps are.

When working with children or adolescents, I provide parent sessions for support and guidance on how to better help your child/ teen .
The human brain is a fascinating place, and if a person is always going to be there, why not make it a safe place? Growing up, I've always wanted to be on the front line to help children and families. I continue to gain the trust of youth and families to enable them to realize their potential. I consider it the greatest opportunity to be helping children/adolescents navigate through a difficult situation and to positively impact their circumstances. I have earned my Bachelors and Masters in Social Work and have chosen to take the clinical route.

Whether you are an adult or seeking treatment for your child or adolescent , we can help.
Our approach to therapy is rooted in the assumption that every person wants to be their best self and live their best life. Sometimes things happen or our needs aren't met, and we are left feeling stuck. Sometimes it can feel like we've fallen off track all together. Either way, the wish to grow and move forward is ALWAYS there. We help patients by drawing out that healthy part of the self. We dismantle their fears to uncover the potential and possibilities that lie beneath the clutter life has piled on top of them. Essentially, we show patients what it feels like to finally be free.

Are you or your teenager struggling with anxiety and/or depression? I specialize in helping tween (10) to adult males with tough situations such as depression, anxiety, overwhelming stress, and school related issues. It can be difficult discussing big, negative emotions and feelings. Through the counseling process, clients can become aware of what is occurring in their lives and understand the underlying feelings that they are experiencing. I always want my clients to have input in their counseling process. This input creates an open and safe environment where clients can be most successful.

I work with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, perinatal mood/anxiety issues, parent/child attachment issues, substance abuse, adolescent and midlife transitions, I provide a safe space to do the work together.
Most often the goal coming into therapy is to find relief and decrease symptoms. Some may come to gain skills to get through challenging life situations and transitions. The skills learned in therapy can be applied for you to use throughout your life and will support long term positive change. The change occurs as we become aware of our life story and the patterns that unfold. In this process we gain more awareness and understanding of the self in relation to others. It is my passion to walk alongside you on the path of self-discovery as your story unfolds and you gain personal meaning.

Due to my community presentations in adolescent growth and development, I see adolescents between the ages of 12 and 25 (the brain is not fully developed until around the age of 25 years!).
Have a cup of tea or coffee. Sit back, and maybe even wrap in a blanket. Take this time to go wherever you need to go emotionally, knowing this is a judgment free room. As your therapist, I will not be able to solve your problems for you. Actually, I would not want to even if I could. I do not presume that I have answers to your problems, or that my way is the best or only way. I fully believe that you have the answers you need within you, we just need to uncover them. I will walk with you for as long as you want and need.

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

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Grand Rapids and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
