      Parenting is one of the toughest jobs on the planet. Children thrive when they are surrounded by healthy and stable relationships. In fact, some experts believe peers become more influential than parents over the course of their development! Therapy with Headwaters can help guide parents build resilience, character and wholeheartedness with their family.


      Relationships are wonderfully complex. They embody both beauty and pain. Surprising to some, healthy relationships are often full of conflict and disagreement. Research shows that while healthy couples experience frequent tensions, the number one predictor of longstanding and sustainable relationship is the ability to repair. Let Headwaters unlock this potential in your marriage!

    Message from the founder, Dr. Keith Louwerse, Psy.D.

    As early as I can remember, I was drawn to helping relationships. Over the years, I learned that authentic relationships could transform people’s lives into something transcendent. Yet the field of psychology demonstrated a seeming lack of holistic care, particularly within behavioral health. Consequently, I founded Headwaters Counseling with the passion to walk along side people in meaningful ways. I invite you to dare. Be curious again. Follow the headwaters back to the source and discover who you are!
