About Me

Welcome, and thank you for perusing my profile. I have had an interest in helping my community since 1981. I am a lifetime Michigan local and a three-time Eastern Michigan University graduate with experience at Washtenaw Community College, the Beaumont Health System and the Henry Ford Health System. I have my LMSW in Michigan.

I bring a wealth of personal experience to my clients, and I am particularly interested in helping creative minds find what they love to do. I am versed in Internal Family Systems therapy, a form of individual psychotherapy that explores your inner emotional systems. You may have heard of "your inner child". Well, you may be surprised to know we all have many parts that speak subconsciously, and sometimes disagree. IFS gets them talking. This approach is very introspective, and requires a great deal of trust between therapist and client. I intend to approach any I do work carefully, with an open heart and mind, and with curiosity and compassion.

I strive to be open and accepting of all forms of gender and identity expression. I also am comfortable discussing disability, chronic illness, fatigue, stress, anxiety and adjustment issues. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions I can answer. You can also find my personal page at "Deena Baty, LMSW Counseling Services" on Facebook.

I'm interested in helping my clients live their best, most fulfilling lives. If you feel we would be a good fit, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Deena's fun. We have a nice chat every week and it slices off a chunk of my anxiety. Every session is moving closer towards where I need to be. Kind of like a warm blanket hug. She just makes me feel good about who I am and where I'm going.

Deena is a wonderful therapist and has a very real personality. She is quick to respond and never leaves me hanging. I am enjoying this type of counseling and I am very glad Better Help matched me with Deena. She teaches you to be a champion for yourself in a world where we can sometimes get lost as individuals. I cannot recommend her enough!!

She is very personal, understanding, compassionate, and she really listens and gets to know you! She does all of this while trying to help you as best as she can with her methods! She becomes your friend and your counselor.
