Professional statement

Mark Walstrom is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Grand Rapids, MI. Mark most often sees clients who have tried to make major life changes, however without lasting benefits. These clients now feel stuck in their regular routines and crave a more fulfilling way of life. This can result in depression or anxiety as well as issues in their relationships.

Mark helps these clients to make a fundamental shift in the way that they live their lives, leaving them to feel engaged, motivated, and connected. He brings mindfulness-based practices into the therapy sessions and teaches clients how to boost their self-awareness of thought, feeling, and sensation. He also supports clients as they set goals for themselves and their mental health, providing helpful insight along the path. His coaching style is solutions-focused, yet gives ample space for reflection on relationships and spirituality.

Mark earned a Master’s degree from Western Michigan University and has over 30 years of experience working with clients. He has additional training in psycho-spiritual immersion programs and Spiritual Direction. He also has previously practiced marital counseling and transpersonal psychology.
