"Practicing therapy since 2002, with children, adolescents, families and adults, I have been able to consistently use clinical experience to find flexible solutions even when others have burned out. With honest and direct feedback, I provide a safe and compassionate environment for clients to grow and make positive changes. I will be forthright about difficult decisions and work tirelessly to find the best, if not easiest, solutions. My consistent concern for the client, rich clinical background, high ethical standards, and willingness to tackle difficult tasks have allowed me to improve clients' emotional and behavioral stability."

"There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance."

"When we perceive that our lives are threatened, we go into survival mode. Survival mode is essential in the face of imminent danger. But when we feel overwhelmed and defenseless to a traumatic event (witnessing death) or events (a child or partner being repeatedly abused) we can become stuck in survival mode, even when imminent danger is not or is no longer reality. If left untreated, chronic survival mode gradually leads to trauma symptoms, which have lasting effects on an individual's biology, conceptions of the world, and psychological functioning."

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?
Therapists in Grand Rapids are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Grand Rapids you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Grand Rapids and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Grand Rapids or family therapy in Grand Rapids.
