Joseph Horak, PhD
I have been a therapist since 1985 and am considered an expert in working with couples and families. I quickly get to the heart of the matter and help find solutions to difficult problems. I am a psychologist, leadership coach and a family business consultant. I am also currently an Entrepreneur in Residence and Honorary Teaching Fellow at Lancaster University Management School in England. I have published articles related to marriage therapy and family business. I was the director of a Post-MSW Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy for Wayne State University’s Grand Rapids program and I also directed the Family Owned Business Institute at the Seidman College of Business at GVSU. I am a Clinical Fellow with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. AAMFT presented me with the highest award for a practitioner. (The Professional Practice Award has only been awarded three times since 1942). Because of my work in academia, my approach is more heavily grounded in theory and research. However, as a client you will find that my approach is very down to earth and practical.
