Our featured business of the month for April is Mattawan Counseling Center. 
mcs1Nestled just off I-94, in a beautiful brick building, Mattawan Counseling Center is open to serve the community and surrounding area.  Owner, Patricia Hinckley, received her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Western Michigan University.   Having grown up in the Mattawan /Lawton area, she chose to open her practice in Mattawan due to the great location, lovely facility and welcoming presence of the town.  Since October 2013 Patricia has been helping people to resolve long-standing issues and become unstuck.  She uses a unique combination of methods which include Internal Family Systems, Intuitive Art experience and teaching affirmative living.
Currently a resident of Lawton she loves to both read and write books.   She also enjoys teaching as an adjunct professor at Spring Arbor University in Oshtemo.  Right now she is finishing a manuscript entitled “Lopsided Loving: Ripples of Grandma that Live with Us Still.”  This book is a psychobiography which examines her grandmother’s life and influence.  The true story unfolded in Kalamazoo beginning in the early 1900’s, it will be available through Amazon books by June 2014.
Because of her passion, warmth, and kindness Patricia offers one free session for new clients and works to keep counseling an affordable option for people who need help manifesting change.   Specializing in helping people find balance and work through transitions, she is a useful link in keeping our community healthy.  Coming up in June she is presenting a retreat “Healing Through Art and Intuition.”  This will be held at the Lily Hill Farm and Conference Center in Lawton.  For more details check out http://www.mattawancounselingcenter.com/art-intuition-retreat-june-6-8th/
