About me

Thank you for taking the time to read my Bio. I have been a practicing therapist for over 9 years. I received my master’s from Central Michigan University and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. I use an eclectic approach, which means that I tailor my approach to each individual client to make sure I always meet each person where they are. My non-judgmental style helps clients reach goals, while feeling empowered and capable to continuing to utilize skills learned during therapy long after counseling is done. I encourage all individuals to set the pace of counseling, determine what their goals are and change them as they see fit. I look forward to supporting and empower you along your journey towards your goals.
At this time, I provide services for, individuals, adolescent's, and LGBTQIA, to help them work through life issues that may have hindered their quality of life.
Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you!.

She is the perfect example of a therapist

Written on Apr 30, 2022 after therapy with DeWan for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and adhd

I am currently at earlier stage of my therapy, retrying therapy after many years of being off, to tackle issues mainly related to anxiety and obsession. Dr Dewan comes across as a friend from the first moment, creates the perfect atmosphere to connect and share and, most importantly, show that she actually really cares about her patients and not a commercial approach. So far she has done great work with me digging deeper into my issues and we are currently working toward a plan to tackle them. I have full confidence in her experience as a therapist and would totally recommend her (and I have tried quite a few, so can tell with confidence DeWan is actually the best therapist I have had)

DeWan McPherson is the only counselor that I have stuck with after seeing 5 or so others. She’s a great listener, offers practical advice suites to my needs, she listens, and understands my perspective and needs. She’s also very direct, and has pushed me in so many ways to improve my life and self. Very grateful to have her as my counselor.

She is a great listener who offers reasonable feedback. She is relatable and reliable. I have had success at looking at another perspective and challenging myself to improve my outlook.
