I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families on a wide range of personal and family-adjustment concerns. Some people have a clear idea of the problem at the outset. Others simply feel troubled and are having difficulty coping with daily challenges. In all cases, I begin with a close consideration of what is known about the difficulty and of factors that may have contributed to its development. In doing so, I encourage a spirit of collaboration in identifying a treatment focus that includes utilization of personal strengths and capabilities necessary to reestablish a better sense of overall wellbeing.

**Happy to take remote clients in Michigan!** Have you ever found yourself unable to feel better, despite past attempts to think your way out and move forward? Have you found that the same types of hardships keep happening over and over with your behaviors, family, friends, work, school, or partners, like a cycle you can't seem to escape? Maybe you've seen talk therapists or doctors for your symptoms before but didn't seem to get better for long. Or maybe you hold pain that's difficult to talk about. Are you tired of feeling stuck? Are you looking to get to the root of these challenges and heal them for good?

Many aspects of talk therapy are helpful. One aspect I particularly appreciate is helping my clients find their voice. It is through hearing ourselves talk that we define what we think, believe and feel. When we are able to put words to our feelings, we learn who we are and are better able to manage our response to problems and conflicts.

There is no one more put together than a person in recovery. Living in recovery is working a program of mental health, staying clean and sober, and living one day at a time. With that being said, each person’s specific program looks different, with the common factor of living a balanced life of being grateful, mindful, spiritual, and finding a sense of community among other recovering individuals. My specialty areas are addictions, mental health, trauma, codependency issues, and how these affect you and those who love you.

My therapy style involves meeting the clients where they are at psychologically. It is important to help the client identify what their struggles entail, and together we discover ways to reach their goals. The key is the client's perceptions and thoughts about their life. This perception influences their behavior. Together we can explore their feelings and develop workable strategies to clarify their issues. I rely on the client's strengths and insights to produce necessary support and build a healthy life on their terms. Clients gain an improved sense of their identity and a better process to attain their goals.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Grand Rapids, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
