June 2018 represents one year of Health for Life being a part of the Grand Rapids and greater West Michigan community. We are thrilled to have a dedicated team of seven clinicians to serve you. These includes trauma-informed and highly specialized counselors (psychotherapists). Our goal is to bring you the highest quality counseling and medical services in West Michigan. We are invested in you meeting your goals and getting back into the world and out of the office to live your life without the constraints of burdening symptoms. While symptom management is important, our passion is to address the root cause so that with time, you no longer need care and can live a more fulfilling life. Since we are highly trained and well-read, we will adjust our treatment approach to your unique situation, personality, and needs.
