Hello, I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor based in the state of Michigan. I graduated from Spring Arbor University with a Masters degree in Counseling. My background consists of working with individuals age 7yrs old and older, family counseling, Severely Impaired disorders, Couples, PTSD, Anxiety and more. Analyzing individuals as a "whole" and not only their mental issues helps the appreciation of the therapy experience for all that engage in my sessions. I believe in asking about your mental and physical health since my teaching has allowed the understanding of medical health has a definite impact on the mental health. I have also worked as a Special Education Teacher for 7yrs prior to gaining a Counseling license. I definitely enjoy what I do for a living because I enjoy helping others.

Hi I'm Gaby. If you have been feeling sick and stuck in a negative thought process and wondering if there is anyone who can understand or help you, let's talk. I am here to help you experience change and escape from the pattern of life that has left you feeling different, unwell, and stuck. I am first and foremost a Trauma Informed Recovery Therapist. This means that I believe in you and I believe in your goals and I know we can find a way to get there while acknowledging all that you have been through. 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 love using a lot of different approaches depending on what we are working on. Some of my favorite methods are cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, strength based therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. 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.

With the right match, psychotherapy is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. I'm a licensed clinical social worker and see individual clients remotely in New York and Michigan. My approach is warm, genuine, and affirming. It's my job to understand how your background, current circumstances, and overlapping social identities have shaped your experience, as well as to help you navigate what's going on in your life so you can heal and move forward. I have a master’s degree with a law minor from Columbia University and have practiced social work for 20+ years. I’ve devoted much of my career to social justice and have worked with, and on behalf of kids and adults of all ages in the areas of mental health, child welfare, juvenile justice, education, LGBTQIA+ rights, and homeless services. After some soul searching and shifting of my "why," I've returned to clinical practice and love meeting and working with people from all walks of life.

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.

We often go through life managing internal struggles, while attempting to navigate our circumstances. Often by seeking greater understanding into ourselves and our relationships, we may come face to face with our deepest doubts and fears. Avoiding struggles and pain opens up the possibility for dysfunction, negativity, and neglect. Our mental health is not as neat as our "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" would have us believe.

I want to work with you if you struggle with anxious attachement, people pleasing, setting boundaries, feeling triggered, anger, anxiety, depression, co-deprendance, parenting issues, and ADD/ ADHD. These symptoms and attacheement style are often related to each other and often related to similar childhood experiences of inconsitancy with caregivers or abusive/engelctful caregivers. (ADD and ADHD is not cause by caregivers, however, when it goes undaignosed in children, there is s strong correlation to symptoms described above)

I'm Julie, a clinical therapist that specializes in Anxiety, Trauma, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Grief & Ambiguous Loss. We know that adventures in life can bring challenges that are difficult or feel impossible to navigate. Because of this, we often avoid dealing with the stressors and teach our mind and our body to navigate through the distress, to the best of our ability. After all, things already can be so overwhelming, how can we consider adding one more thing requiring our attention? What if I told you, all you need to do is take the first step. That one step creates forward movement towards an improved sense of self.

My credentials are: BA, MS, MBA, MA-PC, MA-AC, LPC, CAADC, CCTP, and CFTP. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC) in the State of Michigan. As a therapist, my goal is to assist my clients in working through issues that negatively affect them in their daily lives. I use integrative approaches to therapy (i.e., mindfulness, relaxation, etc.). As both a salutogenic psychotherapist and a neurotherapist I understand that the source of complex PTSD is past experiences and their need for reconciliation. Therefore, clients are offered a variety of curative therapies. The success rate of salutogenic trauma-informed therapy is over 90% as compared to the 20-30% efficacy of conventional CBT therapy. The success of therapy is fundamentally based on the therapeutic relationship built between the client and the therapist, therefore I am here to support, empower, and work with you.
