Joan Galinski, LMSW, BCD

Joan is a native to the Grand Rapids, married and a mother of two adult children.  She is a graduate of Calvin College with a psychology/sociology degree and earned a Master of Social Work from Grand Valley State University.  While working at the Christian Counseling Center she has been involved with a number of social work opportunities as well as in the outpatient counseling setting.

As a clinical therapist, Joan enjoys working with a variety of ages – from young adult through senior members of our society – dealing with such concerns as depression, anxiety, issues of trauma, relationship conflicts, as well as grief and loss issues.  “It is always a privilege to share in a person’s journey and to see how God’s spirit works through this counseling relationship.”

Joan recognizes that she is privileged in being part of a faith community (family, friends, church, work, and activities) that encourages spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and relational growth.
