About Me

Warmest welcome!
My name is Azmen. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 7 years of experience in the field. I hold a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor license as well as an acupuncture detoxification specialist certification. I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work from Western Michigan University. Concurrently I hold a minor in Addiction Studies.

As a therapist, my responsibility and pledge to those I serve is to holistically attend to each individual using a person-centered, motivational interviewing stance. Strengthening your inner healthy self-talk, affirming your values and beliefs, and walking alongside you helps further develop your "true" self, we can build a bond of trust and hope.

My therapy style is tailored to the specific needs of each individual, as we collaborate, to identify goals and solutions to many of life's problems. Perhaps you respond well to assignments and measurable tasks? I'll send them your way. Maybe you are interested in learning more about mindfulness-based strategies like meditation, journaling , or grounding? I draw on the unique individual strengths of each person while integrating traditional therapy with utilizing skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy, I work to empower patient's to make choices that align with their personal goals and values.

I bond with patients over mutually agreed upon therapeutic goals within a caring, non-judgmental and comfortable space where you can explore, discuss and be heard. Use of empathy, transparency, humor, and respect helps put people at ease; helping support you on your path towards healing, recovery and growth.

I'm so glad I found Azmen through BetterHelp. I found our first few session so valuable in helping me understand the past 3 decades of my life in a way I never would have before, so I can break bad patterns and behaviours that are causing me stress and challenges in so many areas of my life now. She gives practical advice, but she's patient and understanding if Im unable to do it all, which keeps me encouraged to keep making small positive steps, her support means the world to me right now, thank you so much Azmen

Azmen was very kind and knowledgeable in helping me cope with some decisions around therapy vs medication. A kind person who listens and you can truly feel wants to help you get better.

Amen has taken the time to correspond with the flexibility of my truck driving lifestyle which helps me tremendously...having flexible means of communication has also helped...she listens responds and encourages...her questions are relative to the topic and she stays on task...I can say unlike any other counseling experience I would recommend her and continue with her on my healing journey no question.
