Ebony Montgomery

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Hello! My name is Ebony Montgomery. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, who is licensed to provide services in The State of Michigan. I have provided counseling services since 2011. I invite you to read my summary in hopes that you will find it helpful in discerning whether I am the professional for you.

Counseling Philosophy:

It has been my experience that has led me to develop a counseling philosophy that highly values the client’s input. I view my clients as experts and recognize the value of their involvement in the process. Therefore, I believe that my client and I must both be actively involved in the process to produce significant change, manage symptoms, and progress towards established goals.

Counseling Approach:

Because every person is unique and will establish various goals, there can be no cookie-cutter approach to treatment. I therefore maintain an eclectic approach (utilizing various approaches) to treatment, which has proved to be successful thus far.

Counseling Experience and Education:

I am a Mental Health Counselor who has provided individual and group therapy in outpatient and residential settings to various populations, including co-occurring, substance abuse, adults, and children. I received my Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. These two science based degrees have equipped me to provide clinical and evidence based practices.

Written by G.I. on May 03, 2021 after counseling with Ebony for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

Ebony is an amazing counselor! When we have our video sessions it is comparable to talking to a great friend who supports you and truly listens to your concerns and struggles. I was nervous about counseling in general but was especially concerned if I could receive faith based counseling through better help. Ebony shares scripture with me and speaks truth into my life from God's word. She has been great in her response to my questions and sends me encouraging messages and resources to help me work towards my mental, physical and spiritual goals. I also had some forms I needed her to fill out for adoption purposes and she had no problem in helping me out with that as well. This has been a MUCH better experience than I could have hoped for. Each week I get excited for our next meeting and sharing my progress and even my struggles with her. She is truly a caring, truth speaking counselor who I now consider a dear friend.

I only worked with Ebony briefly but the whole time I felt seen and understood. She gave me examples from her own life which I found super helpful. It felt like I was talking to a friend and there was instant trust. I also appreciated the homework and worksheets.
