Ken Nydam M.Div, Th.M, LMSW
Everyone is spiritual. But for some, any spirit will do. As a Christian counselor, I offer assistance in achieving inner growth for ones' spiritual life, integrating biblical truth and principles in addressing existential questions and in the treatment of mental illness. My goal is to help you heal in body, soul and spirit.
Couples or marital conflict is rampant in our society. So many of our culture's values are toxic to healthy, committed relationships. I use best practices methods of couples therapy to resolve conflict, rebuild trust and solidify lifelong commitments.
My name is Ken Nydam. I was born and raised in the Boston area in a family of six.
I attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan after which I taught high school English for five years in Massachusetts. Being called into Christian ministry, I attended Calvin Theological Seminary and served four churches in Michigan, Massachusetts and Colorado.
I subsequently earned a clinical degree at Salem State University in Boston, Massachusetts and have been working as a clinical social worker since 2008. I am now practicing as a licensed mental health therapist in my own agency after working at Northern Lakes Community Mental Health and Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services. I have a counseling office in Byron Center, Michigan and also offer services to people in Northern Michigan. I live in Cadillac, MI with my wife Judy.
As a result of my pastoral experience and personal convictions I offer help in integrating a relationship with God into treatment. I believe that healing our spiritual lives in crucial to our wholeness and health.
Going it alone when you are under stress, grieving a loss, enduring a chronic illness, adjusting to change or caring for a sick family member will take its' toll. Find understanding, guidance, pastoral care, and a listening heart at Hope Way.
Hope Way Counseling
People change in three ways. They learn to think differently, to behave differently or are pulled in new directions from the power of relationships. Sometimes professional help is needed to bring about those changes which will heal our lives.
