Where Transformation Begins

Health for Life is considered the trauma-informed care center of West Michigan, as we have multiple EMDR and Somatic Experience Therapy certified counselors. All of our clinicians are trauma-literate: From our Clinical Hypnotherapist who offers medical and clinical support, to our Health Coach who has a Master’s Degree, to our Naturopathic Physician (who also has a Master’s in Psychology), we take your health seriously. We would like to offer you the gift of Health for Life—it is time to step into your journey toward wellness.
