Audrey Berdeski

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a counselor licensed in Michigan with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I also have experience with manifesting for abundance, and energy work.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I currently offer appointments for sessions Monday-Thursday evenings and Saturday and Sunday morning appointments. I do have messaging that I use on a daily basis in between our sessions as well, and I check messages twice a day and will get back with you as soon as possible.

I look forward to working with you!

I would highly recommend Dr. Berdeski. I comprehend that not all counselors are for everybody but she has helped me immensely. She is great at helping you gain perspective in a beautiful light. I am truly grateful to have her as my counselor.

Audrey has been so amazing. She listens and is kind and compassionate and truly wants to see you meet your goals. I was going through a hard spot and she helped me so much, I am forever thankful for her. Talking to her has eased so much for me. I am very shy and I felt like I was able to open up to her immediately.

It takes time for me to fully trust someone, I felt a connection with Audrey. She listened, quickly responded with common sense answer, made good, straight to the point responses. The longer we talked the more comfortable I got. For the first dealing with a counselor, I feel hopeful that I can get real help.

So far so good with Audrey. She's very calm, asks interesting questions that I never thought of and she answers emails and journals throughout the day, so there is almost a constant feedback loop. I really like it and hope to keep this us.

Audrey is the kind of supporter I needed. She’s real with you but understands the subtleties of what you need to deal with things going on in your life. I’ve had the best therapy sessions with her and recommend her to anyone!

Written by J.A. on Dec 01, 2020 after counseling with Audrey for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I have only had a couple of sessions with Audrey so far and have already seen emotional and mental progress in myself. That should tell you something about the effectiveness of our sessions and her counseling style. Betterhelp did a good job matching me with someone who is relatable, straightforward, and well qualified to address my particular issues. I most appreciate that she is upfront and honest, we all need that at times, yet she is still compassionate and kind. Thank you, Audrey.

I really appreciate having Audrey Berdeski as my counselor/ therapist. She's a great listener, educator and shows the best compassion. Audrey really gives me the space to self reflect. She also shares some really great tools with me when I need them. I would differently recommend her to anyone. This is my first time doing online therapy and I found a gem.

Audrey is quite literally the best counselor I have ever had. I love her approach of “just a few sessions, put the work in, and we’re done” as opposed to my previous counselors’ styles. She definitely listens, and makes you put the work in on yourself to grow and get a handle on your issues. She is absolutely incredible!

Audrey is the best counselor I’ve had on BetterHelp. She gives actionable advise without judging anything. I love our conversations and look forward to speaking with Audrey weekly.

Written by B.R. on Dec 04, 2019 after counseling with Audrey for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I have only been with Audrey for a short period of time. However, she helps me to look at things I’d normally find beneficial as to why it might be something I need to look into deeper. How it may potentially be causing other issues deeper down. I’ve only had a couple over the phone conversations and messaging so far, however I feel comfortable talking with her and I appreciate the advice and just, great listening . I’m very scattered and I don’t think I’ve had anyone ever be able to keep up with me like she has. She seems truly helpful so far and I’m very excited to see where she can continue to open my eyes and honestly, just listen as well as she does.

Audrey has helped me through a very tough time in my life. When I was in a slump coming out of a toxic relationship, Audrey gave me tools to make it out to the other side. I was able to discover my self worth and realize the tangled web I was in! Im thankful I did not go through my life in a cycle of hurt.
