I am a licensed professional counselor with a background in human services, education, & social work. I have worked with individuals struggling with the grief & loss of a loved one, domestic violence, trauma, diagnosed personality disorders, anxiety and depression, poverty & homelessness, human trafficking victims, and individuals experiencing chronic pain. Although my experiences are diverse, I have learned two overarching truths: human suffering is universal AND there is always hope. As a Christ-follower & seminary graduate, I can integrate Biblical principles, prayer, and spiritual disciplines into treatment per client request.

*A FEW DAY TIME OPENINGS AVAIL. It's so hard on our bodies and minds to be pregnant, birth or endure loss yet we're expected to carry on with our lives like usual. People that haven't experience the physical complications and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders can't relate. Talking about our "stuff" is uncomfortable because we often feel shame or guilt as we think we should be grateful or we're not feeling good enough. Pregnancy and postpartum is unlike any other journey we wilI face; sharing our bodies with another human is hard, being a new mom is hard, loss/change is hard! You are not alone and with help you can be well.
I will partner with you as together we discover solutions that result in your or your child's healing. It is my goal that you will feel safe, heard, valued, and empowered in my counseling room. I individualize your experience so it best fits your needs, whether it's relationship difficulties, child / parent attachment complications, intensive trauma recovery, family disruptions, or gaining skills to help regulate moods and improve motivation.
Are you or is your child struggling with current or past trauma, feelings of anger, anxiety, or relationship issues? I have over 15 years' experience as a practicing social worker helping individuals and families overcome these difficult issues. My practice is based on meeting people where they are at in life and providing a safe, comfortable space to process and heal through those difficult times either individually or as a family.
**I am currently unable to accept new clients.** Please visit my website www.KatherineListerLMSW.com for more information. Searching for a therapist can be daunting, and finding the right fit is important. Many of my clients are health care professionals, college students, and women who are struggling with life stressors during times of transition. Many people have been struggling lately, just "keeping it together" through prolonged stress and uncertainty. This takes a toll on our emotions and our bodies.

Hello and thank you for visiting my page! I am a Limited Licensed Psychologist and have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Cleveland State University. I completed my practicum with Neurology and Neuroscience Associates, Inc. in Akron, Ohio with a special focus on neuropsychological assessment and diagnostics. I have since worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings as well as correctional facilities. I am specialized in Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnostics and developmental disorders as well as other various psychological testing including ADHD and intellectual assessments.
I like to create for my clients an environment that is conducive to cultivating open communication and trust. I respect and value the thoughts and feelings of my clients and each individual is treated as their own person, tried by challenges specific to themselves. Through self-exploration, understanding and deepened insight, I believe that individuals can heal and foster change.
"Your Path to Well-being" We are a group of clinical and counseling psychologists. Dr. Chris Jansen-Yee is the supervising psychologist for four Master's Level, or Limited Licensed Psychologists serving the greater Muskegon area. We are general family practitioners yet each of us has areas of greater interest and focus. Our newest addition is Lucinda Barnum-Steggerda, MDiv, LMSW. Lucinda is an experienced master of social work clinician. She is a caring, dedicated healing professional with 31 years of experience in social services . She specializes in Trauma-Focused CBT with children & adults, integrating mind, body & spirit.

Anne enjoys using creative expression both in therapy and on her own.
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.
Providing a space of safety and acceptance to explore life issues, we work together to begin the process of change. Beginning with a solution-focused approach, we begin with your strengths. A key to this is learning to effectively use tools (coping skills) along with being able to see and understand situations differently. We work together to improve the health of your relationships, the most important one being with yourself, and then other relationships in your life. Problems with alcohol or other drugs can be addressed if that's something you want to work on.
Are you ready to heal? How does finding relief, internal peace, and gaining skills for you or a loved one that will last a lifetime sound? If you are ready, then you are ready for EMDR. My practice also provides talk therapy. I work with children and adults and have over 20 years of experience managing children and family programs, as well as providing home-based therapy for families. And while working with children and adults each requires different approaches and therapy modalities, my goal remains the same: to facilitate a safe place where individuals, whether big or small, have the opportunity to heal.
Although I spend a lot of time conducting psychological assessments, I truly enjoy the time I get to spend as a therapist walking through life with my clients. At one point in time or another, all of us struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, big-emotions and overall ineffectiveness in our life. In therapy, we not only spend time discussing ongoing issues and current difficulties, but we also focus on themes in our lives and the ways that our thinking patterns can inhibit our ability to create the unique life that we want to live.
I strongly believe in meeting people where they are at in their journey we call life. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. By creating a comfortable and safe environment; I offer the opportunity for those that want the ability to obtain education, support, and tools to work on self and promote healing.

Life can be overwhelming at times and everybody needs somebody! You do not have to handle the stress and issues of life alone. If you are feeling lost, confused, hopeless, helpless or just need some support working on some issues, you can contact me. I enjoy working with adolescence, adults, and the elderly population. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to restore, recognize, and resolve the challenges in your life. We will uncover long-standing negative behaviors/thoughts that may be holding you back from enjoying a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
An ideal client is someone who is motivated to look deeply at sources of strengths and limitation. They understand that change takes place in relationship and that a therapeutic relationship can support and challenge such change. This client is aware that lasting change takes work and time.
I specialize in treatment of adults and adolescents with mental health and substance use disorders. I have expertise in treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, oppositional-defiant disorder, parenting issues, marriage and family problems, and divorce adjustment. I provide patients with a warm, accepting, non-judgmental atmosphere in which to share their concerns, receive helpful feedback and work together toward change. My approach to treatment combines cognitive-behavioral and family systems treatment models.
