Counseling Services in Grand Rapids, MI

- Not Currently Accepting New Clients -

I'm a Licensed Psychologist at HRA Psychological Services, a group practice in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I provide individual counseling and assessment services for adolescents, young adults and adults.

 

The strongest predictor of therapeutic success is the strength and quality of the relationship between the counselor and the client. I encourage you to browse my website to learn about me, my services and what it might be like to work with me.

 

As you search for a counselor consider whether:

a) you would feel comfortable working with them

b) they are able to understand you 

c) you believe they would be helpful to you.

 

If you feel that’s me or have any additional questions, please give me a call at (616) 458-0692 or send me a message through the contact page.
