As individuals, we each have our own experiences and perspectives that shape our story. Sometimes during our journey there can be instances that have us feeling stuck, our emotional backpack too full. This full feeling can impact how we tell that story or how we grow from the bumps or obstacles in our story. Together, we can work to detangle that feeling and work towards empowerment.
My areas of specialty & clinical focus for Individual therapy in Grand Rapids are:
Domestic Violence Survivors
Family Conflict/Adult survivors of childhood stress, conflict or abuse
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Feeling lost? Unsure of what exactly you want to work on in session? Together we can work towards a better understanding of the underlying origin of that feeling or topic that brought you to my office.
Alongside this understanding, we will work on skills and tools to help you navigate these feelings or stressors in the future. My goal, regardless of the reasoning for our initial conversation, is to have you feeling empowered to find your way on your own, using those very skills and the understanding we came to, well after we have discontinued our meetings.
As it is your story, you are driving the course we take to reach your desired outcomes. I am here as a compassionate listening ear to support you and aid with identifying the underlying origins of your stressors via questioning and therapeutic interventions. Ultimately, to reach your success, is to ignite understanding and your own strength to reach empowerment. Whether it is to manage anxiety, decrease negative self talk or to process negative emotional interactions with past events, family or trauma, I trust that together, we can create change.
