About me

I am a Michigan Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and nationally Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). I have had clinical experience working with clients who experience trauma, loss and grief, disability, family issues, and body image challenges. I am a youth mental health first aid provider and trainer in adult mental health first aid response. I offer individual, child, and family counseling. I provide a holistic approach to counseling by addressing physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. I ensure the highest quality care is provided through an integrative, client-centered approach. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques to include cognitive-behavioral, psychoeducational, trauma-informed, mindfulness, and solution-focused. I promote personal growth by providing an atmosphere that is safe, accepting, and direct. I will hear you, validate your experience, and strive for your personal empowerment. If I am not the person to work with you, I will refer you to local area expertise where you may find a better-matched clinician.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Darlene Groomes. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr. Groomes provides support that resonates with both your emotional and intellectual understanding of your needs. I cannot begin to adequately describe the strength of her abilities and the level of her patience.

Groomes is amazing. Shes the first therapist I’ve ever spoke too. She made me feel comfortable, to be honest, to be sincere, to be myself and dig deep. She’s upfront, bold, understanding and I’m lucky to have her as my first experience. Ive progressed, fell back, progressed again and she kept me on track even when I forgot myself. Solid stonewall I can rely on to be on my side.

I am so grateful that I met Dr. Groomes. I had never gone to therapy before, but I was at a point in my life where I needed guidance. Dr. Groomes helped me to not only overcome the problems I faced, but also to evolve into a better and more fulfilled version of myself. I am forever grateful for her support and advice.
