Hello and welcome!

Member of the American Counseling Association, My number one priority is helping you create the best possible life for yourself.

I offer a helpful, supportive, caring, and professional relationship with each of my clients. I believe in your desire to make positive changes in your life to benefit yourself and those whom you love.
Regardless of life's circumstances, you have choices in your response. Counseling provides opportunities to heighten awareness of personal choices. Transformational healing, both personal and relational, occur as you learn new tools to improve your well-being and support your growth toward greater authenticity. Heart, body, mind, and spirit come into alignment through recognition and implementation of personal choices.

You may contact me to schedule an appointment by calling 616-225-1060 or via the Contact Form on this site.

Trauma Counseling:
The American Psychological Association defines trauma as "an emotional response to a terrible response to a terrible event like an accident, rape or natural disaster. Immediately after the event, shock and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships and even physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives."

Traumatic events affect all areas of one's life. Traumas can be physical, emotional, and/or spiritual. When hospitalization is necessitated, a counseling relationship can be developed and continued through the plethora of adjustments related to healing from the traumatic event.
Personal, non-traditional “counseling” focusing on specific strategies for a specific goal.
