We all have meaningful stories to tell, and I look forward to learning how I can be of service to you, whether it’s easing stress, improving communication, getting your relationship (with others and yourself) back on track or helping you develop healthy thinking patterns. I can help give you “tools for your toolbox” to help overcome life’s obstacles. My goal is for you to feel valued, safe, and heard while building a relationship of trust and understanding that is free of judgment. It is my pleasure to walk alongside you and provide collaborative, action oriented and honest feedback to shape your journey towards a greater sense of freedom, meaning and purpose.
I grew up in West Michigan and attended GVSU and WMU for my education in psychology and counseling. I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years and have an extensive background in working with adults, older adults, couples and families. I can help with a wide range of issues, including self-esteem, spirituality, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship/family (couples, divorce, separation) LGBTQ concerns, and gender dysphoria.
Counseling is a unique experience for each person. Finding someone who makes you feel comfortable and listened is to is one of the most important pieces of your journey. I would be honored to help you move towards a happier and more fulfilling life and look forward to meeting and working with you!
I conduct both teletherapy and in-person therapy in the Holland Office and teletherapy in the Grand Rapids office.
