Tim Van Antwerp, LLMSW
I'm here to help you achieve your goals by providing options, ideas, solutions, and the strategies to get there. As long you are willing to put in the time and effort, you're my ideal client. I’ve been in the field of social work for over 13 years. I'm an “out of the box” type to start off. I’m a fan of being original, unique, genuine, thoughtful, open-minded, and as holistic as possible. I believe in the power of a good smile, a good laugh, and the occasional good cry. I believe in equifinality. I'm open to both non and faith-based strategy.
A little personal info on myself, I am an autism dad, and a veteran of both the US Marine Corps and the Michigan National Guard. I went back to college in my mid 30's to attain my social work degrees. Those are experiences I draw from almost daily. I'm all about positive vibes and positive energy to achieve a positive result. Let's level up!
I enjoy playing guitar, singing, fishing, playing disc golf, and pretty much doing anything out in nature. I am also a rather spiritual person. I am very broad-minded in that regard. I believe we have a lot of tools at our disposal to overcome the rough patches of life, it sometimes is just a matter of learning where those tools are and then learning how to use them. As Carl Gustav Jung once stated, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
I firmly believe that we are all capable of great things, and that oftentimes, the hardest parts of our lives can be used as tools to grow, or as I like to say “level up.” You can level up. Let’s start today.
