Welcome to Turnabout Counseling

Home of Solution Focused Counseling in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Counseling/Therapy Services:

At my Grand Rapids counseling office, I offer several forms of counseling, or therapy, depending on your needs:
Individual Counseling:  

You can do individual counseling for most any concern you have.  Many people seek individual counseling for depression, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, seeking clarity about decisions, divorce, relationships, parenting concerns, and so on.

Family Counseling:  

Family counseling refers to having one or both parents and at least one child together in a counseling session.  This is helpful when there is a significant conflict or behavior problem that parents would like to address.  Quite often, it’s more helpful to have parents involved in the counseling even when children have the presenting problem.  

Couples Counseling:  

Most people are familiar with this form of counseling.  One benefit of couples counseling in a solution focused way is that you can avoid the blame and shame that occurs with many forms of counseling.  This makes it easier for both parties to feel comfortable participating in counseling.  When I do couples counseling or marriage counseling, I focus on asking you both what changes you’d like to see in the relationship rather than trying to help one of you convince the other that they have done things wrong and need to change.  By listening to your partner answer questions about what positive changes they’d like to see in the relationship, and also what things are going well that they wouldn’t want to change about you, it’s much more likely you’ll be willing to meet them part way and make things better, and they are more likely to meet you part way as well.

ADHD Evaluations for Adults, Children, and Teenagers:  

Many adults have undiagnosed ADHD that impacts their ability to perform at their best at work or in College classes.  Although ADHD is usually first diagnosed in childhood during school,  some children with the disorder are overlooked in schools because rather than having hyperactivity, which will lead to an evaluation, they have high distractibility and inattention which can be viewed as “laziness” or “underachieving”.  If you find yourself easily distracted, avoid tedious tasks at work such as paperwork, or find yourself starting one task before you complete the previous task, it is possible you have undiagnosed ADHD.  Getting an evaluation may be the first step towards performing at work or school to the level you know you’re capable.
