Marriage Counseling

     Marriage counseling involves more than communication techniques. It involves learning how to love and be loved well. My approach to marriage counseling integrates deep, long-lasting, positive change.

Anxiety

​     Anxiety can be a panicky, groundless feeling. It can come on without warning and seemingly out of nowhere. I help clients explore the root of their anxiety and regain a sense of control over their life.

Depression

     Everyone has felt a little down before, but not everyone has felt the crushing loneliness, pit-in-your-stomach, weight-on-your-shoulders hopelessness of depression. Right now it might feel like no one can help, but what do you have to lose? I do more than teach proper techniques to avoid bad feelings. I support clients in seeking out purpose and freedom.

MY WORK

Everyone goes through difficult seasons of life, and at some point everyone needs a little help. Whether you are seeking peace from inner turmoil, struggling to let go of a lost love one, battling to keep your marriage alive, or exploring new growth, it's important to have a trained professional to help you along the way. I use traditional time-tested counseling approaches combined with the newest developments in the field to provide a personalized counseling experience. Every person is different, and that is why a tailored approach to counseling is helpful in dealing with your unique struggles. It is my job to create a therapeutic experience that can help you develop a life-story (or personal narrative) that you are proud to call your own.

 
 

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Michigan and understand the unique struggles of living in this area. Michigan is different, and you need a counselor who understands the culture. Currently, I work in Grand Rapids--the heart of West Michigan--at The Fountain Hill Center. There I provide counseling for individuals, couples, and families for the issues listed on the services page. Prior to this, I refined my counseling skills at Grand Rapids Counseling Services where I counseled individuals, couples, and families with an assortment of difficulties. In the past I worked at Hope Network and Ottawa County Juvenile Detention Center. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Family Life Education from Spring Arbor University, a Master of Arts in Educational Ministries from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Spring Arbor University.
