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.

I've been very happy with Deena. We've been together for a little over a year now, and I find that my day to day outlook on life is much improved. We have a long way to go yet, but I can see a future where I'm not so much of a wreck.

Deena has been amazing in helping me grow these past few months. She listened to my needs, encouraged me, and gave me strategies to help deal with my stress. When I ended my weekly sessions, I felt confident and well equipped to handle life better!

Deena Baty is a wonderful counselor. She has many ways to help and listens and understands any situation. She loves her job and it shows in the way she treats and respects me. I feel that I can, and do tell her everything no matter how trivial or stupid I think it is, I know she doesn't judge me. She's here to help you live the best life you can live and she has done that for me. Thanks Deena!
