About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 20 years' experience. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from University of Michigan and Oakland University, respectively. I furthered my formal education with a post-Master's degree specialization in mental health.

In my work as a psychotherapist I encounter many people of various nationalities and socioeconomic standing. As I help them with their concerns, I repeatedly find the single most important conduit to change is the relationship we forge in therapy. In this relationship I am without judgment. I am respectful, understanding, and completely accepting.

Although I use a variety of therapeutic methods, an eclectic approach that I tailor to the specific needs of each client, I do try to incorporate humor appropriately in my sessions, the key word being appropriately.

Regardless of the presenting problem, whether it is one's depression, mania, anxiety, trauma, grief, or a relationship, sexual, acculturation, or emancipation issue, I have beneficial goals of my own for my clients: 1) to realize they are more than their problem, 2) to learn how to laugh at themselves and at what life confronts them with, and 3) to become more confident and capable human beings.

Enough about me, I'm glad you for taking the first step toward a more fulfilling, lighthearted, and purposeful life. Welcome to our first session together.

Best person on here. Went through a few before finding Amira

Amazingly practical advice and tips. My gripe with therapists in the past has been not feeling that the sessions are actually useful. This is not the case with Amira. The time per session is limited but out of all of the therapists I've spent time with, she has given me the most benefit for the amount of time spent. Definitely worth the money and time so far. Can already see what I should focus on improving after 2 sessions. If you aren't sure, book her! You won't regret it.

Amira is the best therapist you will ever
Have the pleasure of working with. She is kind, empathetic, listens intently, uses humour in an engaging way … it really feels like you’re talking to a friends big sister, whose favourite you have always been!

Amira is an amazing therapist. I have worked with three previous therapists and never felt I was making progress towards improving my mental health in the ways that I needed. She doesn’t patronize nor pity me when I share what I’m dealing with, and she relies on psychology and experience rather than platitudes when providing guidance. I am so very grateful to be working with Amira and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Amira is wonderful. She’s very easy to talk to and has a wealth of knowledge at the ready to help you through whatever life throws at you. She’s helped me with anxiety, communication/relationships, OCD, career planning, and more. I highly recommend her.

Amira is a rare gem. She has gone above and beyond for me, showing she cares in many small and fundamental ways. Amira is understanding, compassionate and real, and has a unique way of relating to people on their level. I’d definitely recommend her as a counsellor.

Awesome A+++. Extremely helpful

Written by J.A. on Jan 21, 2018 after therapy with Amira for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Amira is supportive, non-judgemental, but also absolutely willing to point out where and how your behavior is unsupportive of you being your best self -- in a very compassionate way. I can speak openly and have never felt silenced or judged while working with her and I feel she's helped me become better at helping myself.

Written by Y.O. on Nov 28, 2017 after therapy with Amira for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and career

Amira has been extremely understanding of my needs and allowed me to take my time and get used to therapy on my own pace. Despite the different time zones between us, she was always responsive and active. She is a great listener and her genuine attitude made me feel comfortable despite the fact that this is my first therapy experience.

I really appreciate corresponding with Amira, she goes above and beyond in her responses. She's very empathetic, it feels as if you're talking to a close friend that wants the best for you. She responds really quickly and I honestly couldn't ask for a better counselor. Thank you for all the help so far!

Written by L.O on Jan 15, 2016 after therapy with Amira for 6 months on issues concerning relationship, and family

I have been talking with Amira Doucette for a couple of months regarding a complicated relationship issue with my boyfriend. I had been very depressed and despondent over the situation but Amira was able to help me see and understand things clearly. I appreciate her concern for my emotional well being.

Written by A.N on Jan 09, 2016 after therapy with Amira for 2 months on issues concerning relationship, and trauma and abuse

Amira is such a supportive and experienced counselor. I have really enjoyed our communication. I was worried that due to the time difference and distance etc it may not work for me. However I could not have been more wrong as I feel Amira is my kind of person with the same kind of interests and I was happy get advice and emails from her. Thank you :)
