Ryan Duckworth, PsyD
Licensed Psychologist
(616) 957-9112 Ext. 40

Dr. Duckworth specializes in providing couples counseling and treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He received intensive training in research-based interventions for couples and PTSD during his postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Medical Center in Wyoming, MI. He also has experience working with individuals who struggle to reconcile their spiritual beliefs with their sexual orientation. He works with individuals, couples, adolescents, and families.

It is Dr. Duckworth’s goal to be a genuine and understanding listener that can meet you where you’re at.  He is respectful, empathic, and nonjudgmental towards all people.

Rather than telling a person what they “should” or “should not” do or be, Dr. Duckworth helps clients clarify their own goals and values. He will help you develop a treatment plan that fits into your lifestyle and is congruent with your values and beliefs.  Regardless of what you are struggling with, Ryan will help you develop a practical and effective plan to move you towards your goals.
