Finding solutions to everyday problems people struggle with is what I strive to help each client do in creative ways. I believe the client is the true expert; therefore I help each client that is having a hard time putting their finger on what they need to change, find creative solutions to dealing with their problems.
I specialize in dealing with anxiety issues, depression, eating disorders, and mood disorders but will also see clients who need help navigating Marriage and family issues. I'm not the typical counselor who sits in front of you, waiting for you to talk. Making the client feel comfortable is of top importance to me so I have found that expressive arts, play therapy, and other useful activities can help ease the stress of talking to a stranger.

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.

Finding ways to change thought pattern can be difficult. It is not uncommon for individuals to find themselves thinking, “I am worthless”, “Nobody loves me”, “I will always be like this”. It is easy to get caught up in destructive thinking, and often a person has no idea how to change. As a therapist, I focus on the individual. It is my desire to help each client go from destructive thoughts to healthy, positive thoughts.
Whether you are married, single, young or elderly, I want to help you become the person you want to be. I strive to provide my clients with a comfortable and safe environment. Each person is unique and different. It is my desire to help each client overcome dysfunctional thinking and behavior, and strive to achieve individual wellness.

Currently, I reside with my family in West Michigan. I am considered an expert in the areas of couples counseling, depression, anger management and Attention Deficit Disorder.
Finding someone who makes you feel understood is often challenging. As a therapist, I believe the most important aspect to therapy is building a relationship with the client and making them feel heard. My goals as a therapist are to understand your dreams, set goals with you to achieve those dreams, and to teach you coping skills to manage the difficult challenges you are facing. I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults who struggle with depression and anxiety but will see children and couples as well. You can find her webpage by clicking here.
Krystie Hague MA, LLPC
My goal is to reach you where you are at, and walk with you through your journey. I think it can be helpful to talk to someone when you are feeling down, anxious or out of control. My goal is to work with you through your struggle; listening and guiding you in this process. I work with couples in premarital and marital counseling and with adults for individual counseling.
I am passionate about some of the issues women are usually left alone to deal with such as miscarriage, abortion, infertility, and postpartum depression. These can lead to fear, anxiety and depression and can rob you of your joy. I think that each person is unique and we all handle life's issues differently. I am one that enjoys a good cup of coffee and a listening ear, what about you?
