Jeremy’s work is compassionate, caring and thoughtful. He has a great ability to make his clients feel comfortable and heard. I would highly reccomend him as a mental health provider and know that he genuinely cares about helping others and his community at large.

Jeremy Houtsma, LMHC, Counselor

My goal is to help you or your teen feel empowered and equipped to manage and overcome the overwhelming emotions that they may be experiencing.  In my adult and teen therapy sessions, my clients and I explore thoughts, feelings, and actions in a safe environment. 

I have been working with teens and college-age adults in counseling for over 6 years, equipping them with the skills to manage difficult feelings.  Many have told me that I was one of the only therapists that they have felt comfortable talking too.  My dog Rufio also helps make each teen therapy session warm and comfortable as well!
