It is my purpose to walk with you in your most challenging times to help you heal and grow. There is no one size fits all when it comes to therapy and the foundation of true recovery begins with a strong therapeutic relationship.

I am a licensed therapist with over 23 years of experience helping others to navigate life's journey. I offer a judgment free environment to overcome life's challenges and provide a safe haven for self-discovery. Through this process my clients have recognized their ability to heal and gain a greater insight into self-empowerment. I specialize in overcoming trauma, relationships, anxiety, depression, addiction (alcohol & drugs) and academic/career issues with individuals and families. I have found that how we perceive ourselves is our reality; however, together, we can expand that perspective to see the bigger picture.

I consider it a privilege to support people working toward positive change. I am sensitive to the fact that many people are not too eager or comfortable with opening up to a stranger about their personal history. As a therapist, it is my goal to provide a safe and welcoming space where you will feel heard, respected and supported. My therapy style is warm, relaxed and caring and I practice from an integrated treatment approach, paced and tailored to fit the goals and readiness of each individual.

Over the past fifteen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Over the past year I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, loss of employment, and countless other challenges can lead to loss of direction and loss of hope. Maybe you feel stuck by your present or your past. I've been there too. When the cloud of struggle keeps you from moving forward, it is important to share your story. You were uniquely created, and your response to the world is yours alone.

For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. When there is loss or trauma in a child's life they can often have difficult or challenging relationships with others. Children who are dealing with great pain are often operating in a mode of survival which can make it very hard to allow people to get close. Family Therapy helps them learn how to build stronger and closer connections in spite of the painful things that happened to them.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Grand Rapids Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Grand Rapids.
