My goal is to help clients achieve improved functioning as quickly as possible. I believe the most powerful transformation comes from a combination of techniques to understand and reset non-adaptive patterns, including neurofeedback, other forms of biofeedback, such as heart rate variability, emotional freedom technique (EFT), and a personality assessment I use called the Enneagram, combined with behaviorally-based counseling, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The combination of these techniques provide the foundation for holistically examining issues that stand in the way of a fuller life.

We can sit here and tell you all about how experienced we are, how we have worked with all individuals and many mental health concerns, but when you look for a therapist, is that the most important thing that you look for? Maybe it is, or maybe you are looking for a therapist that you can relate to, that provides a warm and inviting environment. Maybe you want someone that can throw all rules aside and when you are having a bad day/week can be there just to listen. If you can relate, then Willow Path Counseling is the right place.

I am a Solution Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist, which concentrates on problem solving rather than the situation itself. I create an environment that fosters the feeling that you have an advocate who helps you navigate through situations, which may be difficult. I love being a therapist and that comes through by demonstrating a genuine concern with the issues you bring forth. I am committed to engaging in meaningful dialogue with you in order to recognize and help foster an understanding of your struggles, needs, and personal goals. I will also strive to enable you to find strategies to cope with and resolve any issues.

Counseling can serve many different purposes--it can help us gain understanding into ourselves, gain understanding in how we navigate our world and relationships, it can help us heal from past hurts. I strive to offer a therapeutic setting where clients feel welcome and safe to process challenges in life and to gain perspective. For some clients building skills and tools can be helpful in overcoming struggles. I provide an avenue to equip clients in this way. I have been a counselor for over 30 years, and believe people are uniquely created with God given potential to live a victorious life.

Change can be extremely difficult, and having a supportive, unbiased opinion can be helpful when experiencing tough situations, especially for both children and teens. I believe that my goal as a therapist is to help guide your child, and teach them how to be an expert in their own life, as well as identify their emotions and utilize tools they learn. I want to learn from them and work with them on how to work towards that change. I have experience working in the Schools, and my goal is to help your child be successful and build their confidence at school and in the rest of their lives.

Oppositional Defiance (ODD) Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Kalamazoo or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Kalamazoo, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Kalamazoo.
