Building a stronger, healthier, and more connected romantic relationship.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Sessions will currently be provided via teletherapy using a HIPAA-compliant, secure program. With teletherapy, I can work with couples living all across the state of Michigan.
I am Dr. Mikhila Wildey, and I am a clinical psychologist and couples therapist in Grand Rapids, Michigan who is committed to helping couples build long-lasting and resilient relationships. The foundation of my approach is to build a trusting, connected relationship with each couple I work with, as this will serve as the basis for the work we do together. I work with all types of relationships (e.g., dating, marital, long-term), and the couples I work with come from diverse backgrounds with regards to age, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation, and they present with a wide range of issues. I use evidence-based approaches to couples therapy, and I tailor my treatment approach to each couple’s own goals and needs for treatment. In addition to being a couples therapist, I am a professor in the psychology department at Grand Valley State University. I encourage you to read through my website to learn more about me and my practice. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at all.

TYPES OF RELATIONSHIPS SEEN
I work with couples from diverse backgrounds with regards to age, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. In addition, the couples I work with have many different types of relationships. For example, some couples seek counseling when they are in early dating stages, some seek pre-marital counseling, and other couples are married or in long-term relationships.
I am an integrative therapist, and I tailor my approach to each couple and their individual needs. I use evidence-based interventions including, but not limited to:
Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)*
*The emphasis of my approach is in EFT, which has been shown to lead to significant improvement in 70-75% of couples.
Although many couples choose to seek counseling when there is a problem, I advocate the use of couples therapy as a preventative approach to build resiliency, strength, and commitment for lifelong success.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Sessions will currently be provided primarily via teletherapy. I use a HIPAA-compliant, secure teletherapy program provided through my electronic records system. With teletherapy services, I can provide couples therapy to couples across the state of Michigan.
