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.

“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. My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work stress, and grief and loss.
