Hayley Stites, LLMSW


Welcome! I’m so glad we’ve crossed paths.

My name is Hayley and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I have my Master's degree in Social Work (LLMSW) from Grand Valley State University, where I also received my Bachelor's degree in Social Work (BSW).

Because everyone’s journey is unique, I will meet you where you're at and walk alongside you to provide the support you seek and deserve. My therapeutic style is warm, validating, supportive, empowering, and person-centered. I truly believe that having a safe and validating space to share our truth is so healing.

The approaches I may implement in practice are elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, humanistic/client-centered, and strengths based. I specialize in anxiety, stress management, life transitions, LGBTQIA+, women’s issues, individuals involved in the justice system, pet end of life planning, and pet grief/loss.

When I’m out of the office I find joy in spending time with my 5 cats. They are all rescues with unique stories and goofy personalities. I also have two chinchillas, and a general love for rodents. I believe animals are so healing. I know mine have saved me, and brought me peace in so many ways. I also find joy in listening to my vinyl collection, watercolor painting, and looking for rocks and fossils along the shores of Lake Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Thank you for being here! I look forward to creating a validating therapeutic space for you that is accepting, healing, and empowering.

Hayley Stites, LLMSW
