Joe Martino, LPC
Owner, Director of Interns
Finding healthy ways to communicate is what I strive to teach each of my clients. I specialize in relationship therapy, which may involve couples, parent/child, friends, or co-workers. I want to help each client strengthen any relationship they may have. Relationships can be hard. You can care about someone and still have destructive patterns of communication.
I strive to make each client feel heard, valued, and safe. When we can achieve this, he or she will be on a path to mental wellness. I want to help each person learn new and better ways to communicate. Sometimes, we just need to be heard by someone. I want to hear from each client by listening deeply to what they are saying. I believe that by listening to each person and helping them uncover the potential consequences to each decision they are considering I can help them to make choices that are right for them. I believe each person's situation is unique and should be treated on its own merit.
Joe is the author of the book, The Emotionally Secure Couple, which can be purchased on his webpage, Amazon or wherever quality books are sold.

I have worked with individuals, couples, and children in a non-therapist role for the past 20 years. In the past year, working as a therapist, clients have found me to be warm, friendly, and engaging. My desire is that every person feels safe and comfortable in my presence so that together we can navigate the troubles of life. I believe in empowering clients to be the best person they can be! I will be your biggest fan, your best listener, and maybe the only person in your life that believes in you or your relationship.

Tricia Eid, MA, LLPC
I believe that each person, each couple, and each family has a unique and meaningful story to tell. I enjoy walking with my clients as we build a genuine relationship and I learn about your dreams, passions, desires, and challenges. I believe in building on strengths; acknowledging and doing more of what we do well builds confidence to navigate life’s challenges. I look forward to learning how I can be of service to you, whether it’s easing stress, improving communication, getting your marriage back on track, addressing trauma, or helping you develop healthy thinking patterns. I have a passion for helping people create the lives they long to live through improving relationships (including the one you have with yourself). I have lived with depression, experienced loss, and domestic abuse, and therefore understand how trauma impacts our perspectives, our self-esteem, and our relationships. We can change the narrative of our story and build a support system. I love working with couples and families and believe that we are shaped by our interactions, learning about ourselves through our relationships. I have worked with children, teens, and adults of all ages and celebrate diversity. Congratulations on taking the first step to improve your life and your relationships! I can’t wait to get to know you. (Grand Rapids, Lowell)
Megan Flier, MA, LLPC, NCC
As a therapist, I see my work with each person as a privilege. To be allowed to hear a person’s story is an honor, even more so to walk with someone as they seek resolution to whatever troubles they are facing. Too often we go through life feeling unseen or unheard, seemingly facing life’s challenges on our own; as your therapist, I am here to be in those challenges with you. I believe every person, regardless of who they are or what they have done, is worthy of dignity and respect and it is my goal to empower people by being their partner on their unique journey. I aim to provide people with skills and knowledge, to “put tools in their toolbox” so that they can overcome life’s obstacles both within, and outside of, the therapy room. I am always curious about finding the root of emotional or mental concerns and, when possible, help provide long-term healing at a root level instead of only addressing emotional or mental symptoms. The therapeutic experience is tailored to fit each person, and what that would look like for you is unique. I want you to be able to set the pace for our work together, moving forward in a way that is comfortable for you. In our therapeutic relationship, you call the shots and have control over what our time together looks like. In the end, I believe that only you know what is right for you and am here to meet you wherever you are.
I have experience working with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, suicide, trauma, substance use, grief and loss, autism, family concerns, relationship difficulties, religious concerns, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and trouble adjusting to changes in life.

Travis Gordon, MA, LLPC.
My hope is to empower and support individuals that want to reach their goals and shape their lives in a way that gives them hope and growth. I've worked with anxiety, heartbreak, depression, relationships, career struggles, confidence, grief, shifting interpersonal dynamics, and other significant life transitions. It is my goal to be a listening ear that will both empathize with the unique struggles that someone is facing, as well as help them cultivate the bravery and tools to move forward. I seek to offer a welcoming and casual environment that generates peace even in the midst of the most stressful and challenging situations. I believe that real change and healing can only happen through an honest and transparent relationship. My goal will always be to meet people in some of the hardest places of their lives, walk through that tough space with them in a non-judgmental and personalized manner, and cheer them on as they make practical and effective adjustments for the goals they set. (Grand Rapids, Grandville, Greenville, and Lowell).
Joseph Strain MS, LLPC
I believe that everyone could benefit from therapy. We all endure stress in our lives and sometimes it is difficult to deal with these issues by ourselves. As a therapist, I am here to be your partner in dealing with life’s extraordinary stress - head-on. Together, we will learn your strengths and explore how to cope with the troubles you currently face in a healthy way.
I specialize in trauma (PTSD), addictions, anxiety, and depression. I help individuals understand that there are better ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and or depression than using substances, or engaging in other types of unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors.
I want to assist you in becoming more confident and mentally healthy, by working through some of the troubling issues that are confronting you today.
Karrie Quintino MA, LPC
Sometimes life can seem overwhelming and the thought of seeking counseling can be daunting. Taking that first step can be hard but the results of taking that step could make life that much easier for you. As your counselor I will take the time to get to know you, meet you where you are on your journey and walk alongside you. Together we will figure out how you can become the best you.
I specialize in trauma but I also have experience helping individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. My goal is to make you feel valued, safe, and heard while cultivating a relationship of trust and mutual understanding that is free of judgment.
I believe each person's life and circumstances are unique and should be treated as such. With that in mind, I will focus on you, not try to fit you into someone else’s mold. We all have the ability to change and as your counselor, I will help you see that ability more clearly. It would be an honor to guide you as you learn how to lead a happier and more fulfilling life. (Grandville, Lowell)
My purpose in counseling is to help people find peace and hope in difficult circumstances. I enjoy helping my clients find their own solutions to their problems based on the strengths they have. I challenge clients to develop strong thinking habits to be better prepared for the future.
I excel at working with families and children going through hard transitions such as military deployments, divorce, and grieving using. I have also been very successful in helping people who are experiencing anxiety and depression, especially when the symptoms are associated with trauma.

Currently, I am in the Chaplain program and teach Military marriage and family resiliency training as part of the Strong Bonds program. During my time in the Army, I have been certified in Master Resiliency Training, ASIST suicide first aid, and the PREP marriage and family training curriculum. (Lowell, Greenville, and Grandville)

Lisa VanEtten, LLMSW
“I believe that no person is defined by the struggles they are dealing with in life. As your therapist, I will walk side-by-side with you on your path of growth. Striving to cultivate a relationship of trust and understanding, without fear of judgment.
I believe in creating a safe and supportive place for therapy. I want to get to know you as a person so that we can effectively work together using your strengths. I have experience with Depression, Anxiety, Anger Issues, Substance Abuse, Trauma, and Military struggles.
When you are struggling with addiction it is about getting you on the road to recovery. I am here to walk that path of recovery with you. Addiction is not who you are, but a part of your story. With my years of experience in the field and knowledge gained from my own challenges with sobriety, I am here to help you build your own story to recovery. I recognize that our military service members, veterans, and their families have their own unique challenges that need to be treated individually--as well as collectively within the family unit. I have a long history with the military through marriage, as well as many family and friends who have served. I have worked diligently to learn more about the experiences of war, re-entry/integration struggles, and general challenges faced by our service members/veterans and their families.
As a therapist, I am continuously striving to expand my knowledge--to provide the best help I can with the tools I have in my toolbox--so that I can help you build and expand your own toolbox for life.”
Lee Weeks MA, LLPC
My passion is working with couples to help build strong and healthy marriages. I believe that healthy marriages help build healthy families which in turn build strong and vibrant communities. Understanding the role that communication, values, control, expectations, and fear play in our relationships is essential.
There is a lot of heartache and struggle in life. My hope is to meet people where they are and help them to see that there is hope even when it seems that hope has faded. We need to be heard and valued in our relationships. Ultimately, I strive to help clients discover a new perspective and realize that even in the hardest situations there is still hope. (Greenville, Lowell)
Stephanie West MA, LLPC
Relationships matter, and when they begin to break down – family relationships, work relationships, friendships, organizational relationships – a lot of pain, confusion, and anger can result. Things that are broken in relationships can also be restored and healed with time, effort, and a desire for change. Therapy can be a piece of that change.
I am drawn to working with those who are struggling in their relationships for whatever reason: peer conflict, marital struggles, dating and friendship issues, bullying, and more. Working with women is a particular area of interest. My experiences as a middle school and high school teacher over the past decade have also led me to work with adolescents and young adults on school-related frustrations including ADHD, bullying issues, learning struggles, and conflict resolution. What is damaged in the community can be better restored in the community. Together, we can work through strategies that help support change and healing in the areas that are most important to you! (Grandville, Grand Rapids)
Deb Wolffis, Ma. LPC.
All of us, at some point in our lives, will be faced with challenges and change, whether chosen or not. Some of these changes can be quite difficult and can affect us emotionally, behaviorally, physically, or socially. At times, they can affect us in all these ways. I feel that many people can face these challenges with the added support from a good listener and guide.
My lifelong passion has been just that, to support others. For those new to therapy, I want all to feel safe, heard, and validated and I will be your cheerleader! I have worked in the helping professions of counseling and social work for the past 28 years with a diverse group of adults and children. For several years I have worked with young children and their parents together, in the specialty field of infant mental health. I also have extensive experience in the areas of trauma, child developmental concerns, foster care, domestic violence, depression, and anxiety.
I would welcome the opportunity to work with you, or your child, or the both of you together for positive change. Deep inside, you have the answers; I will help you find them!
A favorite quote of mine is, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” -Victor Frankl
In Loving Memory
On April 2, 2018, Marissa passed away after a long battle with cancer. Marissa was a phenomenal therapist! She joined our practice in 2014 and learned every aspect of the business. She was known around the office for her wisdom, love for life, and finding joy in the journey. She would choose joy many days, even when she did not feel the best. She saw clients up until her final days here on earth. Marissa is missed dearly and will always be a part of us. You can learn more about her life, and the reason for her joy by watching this documentary of her life. https://www.rightnowmedia.org/Content/Series/199050
Marissa Freyling MA, LLPC
Have you ever had a pair of sunglasses with the perfect lens to look through? Then one day, you lose them. The task of finding a new pair that has a similar feel, comparable look, and the same perspective can seem quite daunting. It may be a silly analogy, but I believe counseling can often have the same effect.
Life is a journey of ups and downs, roadblocks and detours, times of sorrow, and moments of joy. Often times we look at each area in our lives through the same perspective, the same lens. My goal is to help you gain new perspectives, to guide you in taking a fresh look at life through a new lens. To see the beauty in the broken, to choose joy in the midst of sadness, to find courage in the face of fear, and to have patience in times of longing.
I consider it an honor to walk alongside someone wherever they find themselves within the journey of life. I have a passion for helping children blossom into their personalities and illuminating their emotions, for building a safe and trusting relationship with teenagers who are discovering themselves and their purpose in life, and for adults who are struggling to find balance and value among the pressures of life.
