At times, people experience a loss of hope and an inability to find meaning in their lives. They may struggle with depression , trauma, grief, addiction, relationship problems, or developmental issues that can affect us at any time across the lifespan. Through counseling, I will work collaboratively with you to resolve your current issues. I also work with parents struggling with raising their children, and couples who struggle with communication issues and/or repeated core conflicts. Our goal will be to develop better ways to manage emotions, improve problem solving strategies, and find new ways to look at the world.

Evaluations in my scope of practice include ADHD for children and adults, Child and Adult Depression and Anxiety, and Substance Abuse and Dependency evaluations, not a full psychological evaluation.
I believe that clients have within themselves an amazing ability to self-heal, and the role of the counselor is to find and tap into that ability. I also believe it is important to learn about each client's world and to develop a relationship where clients can feel understood and supported while learning about themselves. This creates the space for exploring the choices they have and any changes they may want to make toward more personal fulfillment. Therapy for children may involve consultation with parents who need support meeting their child's challenges. Play therapy is used with children.

My special interests are in working with adolescents and adults, including elders, who are struggling with anxiety, depression , grief and loss, eating disorders, anger and other adjustment issues.
All of us will have times in our lives when we meet challenges that are difficult to deal with alone. During these times, therapists can provide the support and guidance that we need to identify our strengths and resources and learn new ways to deal with our problems.

I work to support people through depression and anxiety, difficult relationships, trauma and loss, PTSD, sexual orientation concerns, grief, and other challenging life transitions. Together we explore ways to shape a life rich with purpose and meaning. While I believe each of us carries the wisdom to create authentic and lasting change in our own lives, often access to this intuitive knowing is blocked or damaged. My goal to help you cultivate, restore, and strengthen the connection to your own inner knowing.

If you are interested in a nurturing & safe space for processing and working through life's natural shifts and unexpected challenges, I would love to meet you! The clients I work with are typically seeking support related to their experiences with trauma, depression , anxiety, and identity issues.
In my work as a therapist, I guide my clients toward a self-awareness journey that is centered in sustained wellness. The majority of my recent work has involved clients whose mental health is impacted by systems of oppression. It is important to me, as a mental health professional, to cultivate deep attunement to the unique needs of individuals who identify themselves as belonging to historically excluded communities. I am committed to staying engaged with liberation efforts that amplify my scope of practice in the interest of consciousness expansion and healing.

I have experience working with trauma, depression , parenting issues, life transitions, and stress.
Finding the right therapist for you is important. My style tends to be warm and soft-spoken but I can be gently confrontational when necessary. I decided to become a therapist because I deeply care about helping others in meaningful ways.

I specialize in treating depression and anxiety as well as serious mental illnesses with teens through older adults. Facing life transitions such as adolescence, graduating high school and college, entering the professional world, becoming a new parent, considering a career change, or entering retirement can weigh heavily on one's mind and I'm here to help. In addition to an MSW, I hold an MDiv which equips me to provide a Christian counseling experience for those desiring to have their spirituality incorporated into treatment. I look at and hear the person in front of me, seeking to understand what is said and unsaid.

I specialize in anxiety, depression , grief, perfectionism, self-compassion, trauma, relational concerns, sexual orientation, gender identity, and major life transitions.
I believe the human capacity for change and growth is incredible. Difficult experiences, negative environments, and challenging relationships can distort our connections with ourselves and others. These disconnections can create problems, and I see relationships as powerful change agents--particularly our relationship with ourselves. When clients are given the opportunity to feel heard and understood, healing and growth are possible. To do this, I believe it is vital for us to establish a strong relationship to support the change you would like to make. I provide culturally sensitive therapy to motivated individuals and couples.

My compassion for all beings began long ago and has been the cornerstone of my personal and professional life. It is truly the only reason I practice counseling. I am profoundly aware of the vast amounts of suffering we all experience throughout our lives. Experiencing and releasing this pain is the goal. I believe in the emergence of self knowledge, positive energy and right action as fear and resistance are diminished. I prefer not to label conditions and symptoms ,but strive to fully understand and appreciate the individual sitting before me. * The additional stress of our times cannot be ignored or minimized*

Hello. I work with late teens, young adults and adults as they meet the challenge of difficult emotions such as: sadness, anxiety, loneliness, frustration, anger, fear, disappointment, grief. Navigating what a full life has to offer can be complicated and at times surprising; relationship problems, school issues, parenting concerns, family conflict, multicultural issues can leave us feeling uncertain and alone. Life transitions can bring their own unique challenges: marriage/partnering, pregnancy, childbirth, medical and/or mental health diagnoses, divorce, blending family, death and dying each can challenge our usual coping skills.

You are unique in all the world! There is no one just like you with your story or life. Your family, pets, friends, community--where you came from--what you have overcome and endured-all these make you the unique person you are. At some time you may wish to turn the page on your story. My therapy involves walking with you while you decide where you want to go from here--who the person is that you want to be--how you want your life and story to change. I will listen and challenge, support and invite you to learn new skills and growth.

In a relationship with a partner that leaves you despairing or giving up? Trying to raise a child who melts down over what seems like nothing? Feeling that parts of yourself won't let you move on and experience life as you'd like? How we connect with others, ourselves, or even our spiritual resources can be life-giving or exasperating. I specialize in attachment---the way we connect with those most important to us. I will meet you where you are. I'll work hard to understand what you are experiencing.

Using research-based psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I am able to work through barriers individuals often encounter, such as anxiety, depression , self-esteem, disruptive behavior, trauma, emotional skill building, or difficulties in everyday life.
(Limited openings; weekends available). It can be difficult to find the right therapist. While I provide research-based psychotherapy, my approach is a bit more unique than other therapists; I implement humor and creativity, along with compassion and candidness, into each session while still meeting a client’s specific needs. My easygoing and laid back approach aligns with my target demographic of teens and young adults. Additionally, I also offer evaluations, assessments, and testing, including IQ, personality, and behavioral analysis, such as ADHD screening.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Westnedge Hill, Kalamazoo. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
