Resplendence: "Shining brilliantly : characterized by a glowing splendor."
Hello! I am so glad you're here. It is my privilege to support you through whatever challenges you may face by providing a warm, accepting, compassionate atmosphere that is absolutely judgment free. As your counselor, you'll find that I'm engaging, hope-filled, empathetic, and well- grounded. I connect particularly well with teens, young adults, parents, couples, and women facing a wide array of issues. I have over 6 years of experience in the mental health field including partial hospitalization as well as outpatient counseling.
I have special interests in grief, infertility, trauma, and couples counseling. Other interests include pregnancy & postpartum, life transitions, stress, anxiety, identity and self-esteem. I see clients in person & online through Telehealth. Online counseling is an excellent option for those with busy schedules or those who prefer counseling from the comfort of home.
I offer a person-centered, compassionate, hope-filled approach to counseling. I believe our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are strongly connected & I'm passionate about helping clients create healthy patterns of thought. I'm certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) & Hope-Focused Couples Therapy (hopecouples.com). I’m currently working towards becoming a Certified Grief Counselor with the American Academy of Grief Counseling.
In 2017, my family moved from Zeeland to Grand Rapids in order to help plant The Local Church - GR, where we remain actively involved. In my free time, I can be found enjoying quality time with my husband and three sons, cooking, thrifting, reading, and renovating the charming little fixer upper we call "home."
