I have a heart for helping people and walking alongside them in their journey of healing. Life can bring unexpected pain and suffering. Often times you can feel lost and confused with no one to turn to. Counseling is a beautiful way to seek help from someone who will guide you through the littlest to most difficult times in your life. Everyone can benefit from talking to someone who is not a family member or friend. Someone who will truly hear your needs and unconditionally support you. I am here for you! Please Call Today!

I specialize in working with young children, foster care, adoption, developmental disabilities, school challenges and parenting. Children communicate through their behavior. I'm here to help you make sense of what your children are trying to express and teach strategies that will help them develop positive coping skills and more control over their emotions. My work with children is play based and relationship focused. I love discovering a child's strengths and interests and use those to inform my treatment.

I use creative modalities such as art, narrative, music, play therapy , and mindfulness approaches to support physical and emotional well-being.
There are times in life when it feels like you cannot take another minute of toxic stress or anxiety….whether it is about how you are coping with personal challenges or about your children or relationships. Perhaps there are events in your past that keep you from moving forward with your life. I invite you to a calm and welcoming space to help you find a way to resolve these issues. I am an empathetic listener who strives to help others rediscover strengths to heal their hearts so they can achieve their goals.

I am especially strong in making connections with kids through all kinds of play so they can process feelings and experiences when words are difficult to find.
Sometimes the challenges we face are so difficult that we have a hard time feeling hope. It is my honor to walk with you through this time, helping to find a glimmer of hope and build on that together. My goal is to create an environment where you will feel safe, accepted, and encouraged. I work with people of all ages, though I specialize in working with children and teens. I use a client centered, strengths-based approach, and building a strong relationship is a priority for me.

I am nurturing, yet direct in my approach and see working towards tangible change as important. Therapy in my office is always client led coupled with some therapist guided cognitive changes to approaching problems and setting concrete goals. With young children, therapy will be play focused along with some parental involvement expected. I come with 18 years of clinical experience working with individuals, families as well as with couples and groups. My experience has stemmed from a variety of settings including domestic violence shelters, psychiatric units, juvenile detention centers and private practice.

My name is Michelle VanNoord and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience in working with children, adolescents and adults. As children grow and change, they often think and respond differently than adults would. I meet kids where they are at to help them through their struggles in a way that makes sense to them. I help parents understand the limits of the developing brain and how that can play into some of the struggles their child might be experiencing. I have worked in the school setting, taught college level classes and continue to speak to local teachers about the ways children grow and understand the world.

I have experience using a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Play Therapy .
We all want to change in some way, and I believe that real, visible change comes from an internal motivation to be better versions of ourselves. By looking at the uncomfortable or unexamined parts within ourselves, that positive change becomes possible.

Using techniques such as art therapy, challenging and changing thoughts through CBT or TF-CBT, and even play therapy can be helpful in managing symptoms and healing for you or your child.
Coping with your anxiety or depression is hard, especially alone. How about starting in a safe space where, together, we can navigate through this? Are you struggling with communication and problem solving? Life is already too stressful to come home to feeling like no one is being heard or not being able to talk with your loved one without arguing. Maybe you feel overwhelmed every time you get challenged as a parent or a have a child that is experiencing overwhelming anxiety, PTSD, or depression. Individual therapy sessions could be truly helpful focusing on the strengths you and your child already have.

Deciding to seek help can be one of the most difficult but rewarding steps you will take in your healing journey. The sadness, anger, disappointment, frustrations, stress or confusion you may be feeling does not have to be your life's story. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, self-esteem or personal issues, you deserve all that life has to offer and you do not have to feel alone.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Holland or for a Holland play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
