Amira Doucette

(MA, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 15 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.

Amira has been one of the best therapists I have ever had. She is very supportive, understands my needs and problems and I like her style of therapy. She is very supportive and knows what questions to ask.

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.

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!

Amira has listened to me very well, replied fast and asked all the right questions. Even though our conversation has just started, I'm hopeful that she will help me see things in a different light.

Written by L.O on Jan 15, 2016 after counseling 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 counseling 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 :)
