Therapy is about developing a collaborative relationship to help process some of life’s toughest challenges and explore our distinct stories. I consider it a privilege to hear people's stories and develop a therapeutic relationship to discover new growth and overcome adversity. If you are feeling stressed or stuck, therapy can help restore balance and facilitate lasting change.
Over the past few years, I have honed a warm, adaptive, and compassionate approach in a combination of inpatient and outpatient settings. In addition, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Hope College and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Michigan. I draw on cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapy to adapt to the needs of the individual. My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work stress, and grief and loss.
“I need help” are three immensely difficult words to say, but they can be transformative. Choosing to see a therapist is a courageous choice filled with possibilities. Request an appointment today, and let’s discover your possibilities.
