Time for a change?
With over fifty percent of marriages failing in our society, couples or marital therapy is often needed and, therefore, an essential part of my practice. I am a trained Gottman Institute marriage counselor. I have been married to my wife for 47 years and we have raised three daughters.
Depression and anxiety are the two most common mental illnesses in our culture and are treated primarily through medication, CBT therapy and behavioral changes. Although these treatments are important in addressing these issues, I also teach Mindfulness and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) in which we bring radical acceptance of life's struggles.
Life is a constant adjustment to change. People change because they learn to think differently, behave differently or they are pulled into new directions by the power of relationships. We can guide you to and through those changes which will fix your life.
Going it alone when you are under stress, grieving a loss, or enduring a chronic illness takes a toll. You will find understanding, guidance, pastoral care, and a listening heart at Hope Way Counseling Services.
Families are under much stress with the pandemic, marital failure and busy lives. Sometimes one family member seems to get all the blame when in fact the whole family needs to recalibrate to make the whole family system healthier. Don't let your family get too far behind in your love and celebratoin of all its members.

My name is Ken Nydam. I was born and raised in Massachusetts. I am married and Judy and I have three daughters. I attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I then taught high school for five years in New England. I left teaching after being led to Christian ministry and attended Calvin Theological Seminary. I subsequently served as the pastor of four churches--two in Michigan , one in Colorado and one in Massachusetts. In 2008 I left pastoral ministry after getting my MSW degree at Salem State University in Boston, MA in clinical social work. I worked at Community Mental Health in Cadillac, MI and Pine Rest Christian Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI until 2015 and currently work part-time in my own agency. I have an office in Byron Center, MI and soon an office in Allegan, MI.
