Megan has training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), complex trauma, Social Thinking, and crisis intervention. Megan believes the best opportunity for change comes from not only working with the client but also ensuring that each client is building a system of support outside of therapy in order to continue this work outside of sessions. Megan enjoys working with adolescents-adults with a particular focus on the emerging adult population.

Hello potential client! You are hurting in some way if you are here reading this. Maybe you feel like you are getting more and more stressed out and just one more stressor would be too much for you to handle. Maybe you worry all the time about everything and can't stop. Maybe you are sad all the time and don't enjoy doing things that used to be fun. Maybe you are feeling helpless or hopeless about what to do. Maybe you have been through a traumatic experience or are grieving. Maybe you are thinking the way you have been using substances is causing you problems. You have tried your best to help yourself but nothing has worked the way you hoped it would. You don't know what to do but you do know you can't keep going the way you have been. This is where I come in! I help people who are ready to change for the better! My heart is for helping hurting people and I strive to treat all of my clients with the compassion and respect I believe they deserve. The most important part of positive change in a therapeutic relationship depends on just that - the relationship between the therapist and the client. I also use a variety of resources to help my clients. These include evidence-based types of therapy, worksheets and measurements. I also offer Christian counseling to those who are interested and am also happy to work with people of other spiritual beliefs. I offer free consultation calls so we can both decide if working together would be a good fit for both of us. I look forward to hearing from you if I sound like I would be your kind of therapist!

I am a licensed clinical social worker committed to having a successful therapeutic relationship with clients. I like to empower and collaboratively work with clients to address their concerns, reach their personal goals and optimal potentials. I've always wanted to help people and I've always been a really social person; therapy allows me to do both and serve clients who may not have sought therapy before. Being a Black woman, I understand that people who look like me are least likely to seek therapy; this is one of the reasons I chose to become a therapist. I love interacting with clients from all different backgrounds as this widens my therapeutic practice. I received my undergraduate degree from FSU and my MSW degree from FIU.

My approach to therapy is meeting you where you are at and helping support you in your journey of life. I offer a safe space to cry, laugh, mourn, and be completely yourself. This space is a place where you will be heard and supported. My role is not to fix you or to impose my views on how to live. My role is to observe and reflect alongside you while I watch you accomplish your goals for yourself or your child. My main areas of expertise are LGBTQ+ issues, anxiety, parent management, emotion regulation, family conflict/relationship issues, OCD, and trauma. I utilize Seeking Safety, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), ACT (acceptance commitment therapy), Attachment-based therapy, and other therapy tools when necessary. Let’s be real, life can be hard! I know firsthand the importance of having someone to help and support during difficult times. Whether that is learning to cope with depression, anxiety, or wanting to improve your family’s relationship. Support is something we all need, and I would be honored to walk along you during your journey of life *Fees can be discussed when scheduling appointments if doing cash pay. Rate seen on profile is not set in stone, as everyone's financial situation is different, and want to make therapy affordable.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida, Wisconsin and in Michigan. I have an Associates Degree in Computer Programming and have Master's Degrees in Social Work and in Interdisciplinary Studies. I love to learn and find that translates to learning about people as well. What do people find challenging? What brings them joy? Peace? Excitement? How can I help people recapture these positive states and sustain them? I am also a credentialed minister. I find that many people struggle with how their faith and therapy intersect. By engaging in therapy are they denying their faith? Does it mean that they are lacking in belief if they utilize therapy services? I have the unique privilege of working with individuals from both the secular and the faith perspectives.

Hello! My name is Faheda Rasool and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I live in the sunny state of Florida and hold licenses to practice in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Wyoming, and Hawaii. I practice virtually for my clients' convenience. My therapeutic style is warm, curious, and empathic. I mostly utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in my practice, though I also incorporate aspects of ACT, DBT, solution focused, and strength based perspectives in my approach. Throughout our time together, we will identify some primary challenges and create goals for our treatment plan. As sessions progress, these goals will be checked in on to assess for progress. Therapy is a great space to explore negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions, as well as challenges that may be sudden, or lingering for a while. This is a great space to gain new insight and perspective while learning more about yourself as you continue your own growth journey. As always, please remember that therapy is a judgment free zone. I am here for you!

The great poet Rumi wrote "out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there." That field is a space where calm, love and forgiveness exist. There is no judgement, only acceptance here. And in that soul space you are free to find those fragments of you that are lost, and begin to piece them back together. ​ I'm licensed in both Florida and Michigan. As a licensed clinical therapist and licensed substance abuse counselor, I have experience running very powerful substance abuse and co-occurring groups. Prior to that, I worked as a social worker in Flint, Michigan for many years as a therapist, caseworker and in crisis intervention. My experiences have given me such a rich experience and exposure to the many factors that contribute to our personal mental health and well-being. I've been fortunate to work with people in their homes, in the community, with their families as well as the private practice setting which have given me a much richer experience than just an of an office setting alone.

Hi I am Gaby, a licensed clinical professional counselor, I earned my master’s degree in Community Counseling at Loyola University Chicago. I realized I wanted to become a therapist during a serendipitous summer camp experience—40 feet in the air on the high ropes course, I learned that I loved helping people process challenging experiences in creative ways. I have been doing individual therapy with teens and adults of all ages since 2020. Previously, I worked as a clinical consultant, clinical director, and clinical supervisor in specialized mental health rehabilitation settings. I have been supporting people in creating and meeting their goals since 2012. I have used all of my past work experiences to learn how to work with clients to explore dreams, and strengths, and learn how to make these things their reality. I use eclectic strategies to support people as they sort through their lives and figure out ways to move forward in a new light. I believe that therapy is a special space that allows a person to sit, process, and problem-solve in a way that can’t always be done in day-to-day. Those who know me best would describe me as someone who goes with the flow but still takes time to stop and climb some trees. In my spare time, I can be found with my husband and three boys ideally outside kayaking down a river or cross-country skiing in the woods. I also enjoy running, biking, gardening, and cooking.

Hello, My name is Karenna Lang and I am a licensed master's level clinical therapist. I earned my graduate degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I also obtained a post graduate degree from the University of London. I am licensed to practice in the State of Michigan as well as the State of Connecticut. If you are facing challenges in your life and are considering therapy I am happy to assist. Many of us experience issues with anxiety, confidence, and self-esteem. Emotions, thoughts and behaviors can be very challenging. It is my goal to assist clients with understanding how these three components are interrelated and to assist clients with empowering themselves to achieve increased awareness, introspection and insight and gain a happier life. Are you faced with worry? Do you find yourself overthinking and experiencing racing thoughts? Perhaps you experience social anxiety. Are you facing a history of family trauma? Or perhaps, issues with communication and conflict in a relationship? Perhaps you are dealing with a stressful matter related to your career, or educational endeavors. Or, you may be dealing with identity issues and/or gender changes. These are just some of the examples of the topics I can address with you. My primary areas of interest include persons suffering from anxiety, persons with a history of family trauma, and individuals and couples experiencing problems with communication and conflicts. I also enjoy working with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Whatever issues you may be facing, it is a courageous step to seek and obtain counseling services and I am happy to offer a friendly approach and a safe, confidential, respectful, and supportive environment.

Whether there has been a significant loss, a life transition, relational conflict, or daily stressors, we all need support during difficult times. Sometimes, however, a trained professional can help navigate these challenges and assist in facilitating positive change. We aren’t always able to recognize the underlying cause of our discomfort or find ways to overcome life’s challenges. In a therapeutic setting, we will work together to discover healthier ways for you to deal with life’s struggles, make desired changes, improve relationships, and find inner healing. Seeking therapy can be viewed as an investment in yourself. Improving mental and emotional health is as important as one’s physical health. My role is to provide a safe space and come alongside you on your journey. I work with adolescents and adults and provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, (PTSD), relationship issues, parenting, behavioral concerns, and many other problems affecting how we feel and operate in the world.
