Discovering the Mind, Body & Spirit​

Cultivating a Difference with Adults Struggling with Trauma and Substance Abuse

Home: Welcome


Helping adults who are ready to work through past trauma, substance abuse, and changing their way of their thinking in the local Grand Rapids area.

Overcome the Past

You may not consider or believe that your life experiences include trauma. You might think, “Doesn’t everyone feel like this? This is just life, right?!” The answer is no! You can have less inner conflict, better decision making, and enhanced self-control. Change is possible with EMDR therapy.

Discover Hope

Substance abuse is tough to deal with alone and I'm here to walk the journey with you. My job is to help give you the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. There is hope for a future without substance abuse.

Better Manage Your life

"I'll never have a happy relationship," can become "I'm realizing I need to re-evaluate what I'm looking for in a relationship," with cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT can help you to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.

Let's Get You Unstuck

Does therapy just seem like laying on the couch and talking about feelings? Let's change that. Using EMDR and other techniques, I can provide you a mentally challenging environment to do the work at the deepest levels to make a long, lasting change.

“Changing the memories that form the way we see ourselves also changes the way we view others. Therefore, our relationships, job performance, what we are willing to do or are able to resist, all move in a positive direction.”
