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.

Psychologist, PhD, PC, LP

Thirteen years experience as Senior Staff Psychologist on an inpatient adolescent unit allowed me to work with a wide spectrum of adolescent problems including ADHD, behavioral, and eating disorders.
Finding the right therapist to guide you through a particular setback, conflict or crisis along life's journey can be a daunting process....I know. Being a psychologist for 30 years and having been involved in hundreds of hours of my own personal therapy during my doctoral training, I understand the importance of the right client/therapist match. Successful outcomes are more promising when one feels comfortable, safe and confident with a competent experienced professional. Selecting a therapist should not be an impulsive decision so take your time and be particular since you are about to invest time, finances and trust.

People enter into a counseling relationship when nothing else seems to be working. Although most people soon make comments such as, “(Counseling) was a lot better than I thought it would be”, few people seek counseling as a first option. More often we seek out techniques that either help us to temporarily avoid (e.g., media, social networking) our anxiety, or we seek temporary shots of pleasure (e.g., alcohol, food, pornography) that make us feel good for a short time. Soon enough we realize that all of these things leave us feeling more hollow and lonely, and that is when we start thinking about counseling.

Rich and meaning-filled living can elude us. Relationships, current life situation, inner struggle, the way we are wired or past experience can interfere with our natural capacity to thrive. With 30 years of experience as a therapist, I believe our conflicts and struggles are the doors through which our growth comes. I devote my practice and continued learning most powerful ways to support the fullest flourishing possible for each of us, no matter our circumstance. With this in mind, I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I also use on-going evaluation to insure our work together is effective and satisfying.

Have you found yourself feeling more stressed out and tired than usual? Maybe you haven’t been showing up for friends and family, your job, or school like you used to. But you tell yourself you don't have time to figure out the reasons why, or the way you're feeling is not a big deal; that you can handle it. If this sounds familiar, perhaps you're ready for either a big change; small steps towards change, or simply need someone to talk to who will listen. No matter where you are, I will meet you there. Therapy needs to be about what YOU are ready for.

Hope and joy are parts of life, however, life can also be filled with struggle and hardship. At times our struggle can be so great that it starts to chip away at our sense of hope. It's at this point that counseling can be helpful. It is my goal to walk alongside people as they face these struggles that have made it difficult to maintain hope. They can stem from a host of experiences including; trauma, depression, anxiety, loss/grief, and relationships. I wholeheartedly believe it takes courage to face what is troubling us or causing us pain.

I created the 5 CORE Model of counseling to give individuals and couples a whole-health experience. I emphasize a multidimensional aspect of healing, focusing on the 5 aspects of our being: emotional, intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social. We are more than any one of these areas. Rather, we were created to develop all of them, in order for you to be free of anxiety, depression, or anything else that holds you back from living a productive and satisfying life.

My ideal client is motivated to work in therapy and recognizes that therapy is as much about some pain as well as some joy. They have important issues in their lives and are searching for meaning, resolution, and growth because we all live in a world where these are not recognized, honored, or validated.

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 Holland and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
