Genny Luppino

(MA, LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a licensed counselor licensed in the state of Michigan. Until February 2021, I worked in community mental health as a case manager and team-based therapist for over 6 years. I can provide services to children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, self-esteem & confidence, stress, and life changes. I also helped many people who have experienced physical or emotional trauma and abuse in childhood and adulthood [including bullying and domestic violence]. I have a background in assisting people with substance use and abuse struggles [recovery and relapse]. I also helped many people who have experienced physical or emotional trauma and abuse in childhood and adulthood. I have experience in helping people with gender identity, sexual orientation, and other LGBTQA+ individuals can wrestle with.

My counseling style is warm, engaging, and nonjudgemental. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity, and compassion. My eclectic approach utilizes different helping interventions from psychoeducational, person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, existential, and boundaries development. I customize our interactions and your treatment plan to match your needs and goals. I love empowering people to learn new skills and techniques that will help them long after therapy has ended. I allow people to set their pace and goals for therapy to ensure that they get the most out of our time together.

It takes a lot for someone to recognize that they need someone to help guide them in fulfilling their goals and living an empowered life. When you are ready to make that move, I am here and available to support you all the way.

I look forward to working with you!

I can't say enough positive words about the wholesome approach to my mental health that Genny takes. She is silly and serious, compassionate and confident, reliable and real. She relates to me personally and clinically allowing for a diverse mixture of emotional connection and comprehensive knowledge. We all need help keeping our mental health in check and supporting the growth of our emotional intelligence. For that, I highly recommend Genny amd Better Help.

Thank you for helping me survive the shit show that 2020 is and has been. Be kind to others and yourself.

I really didn't know what to expect. This was my first experience with a therapist, and Genny was amazing at making me feel comfortable through out the sessions, guided me through the resources, and answered any questions that I had. She's super responsive and thoughtful in our conversations. She's got a sense of humor and great empathy, which I really appreciate when talking about tough issues. Her experiences and expertise really comes through in her support and feedback.

Genny is a wonderful counselor. She helped me through a very rough patch in my life dealing with anxiety and depression. She offered advice and techniques that fitted my lifestyle and made herself available to talk whenever I needed encouragement to go on. I am grateful for the way her advice improved my quality of life.

Written by T.A. on May 11, 2020 after counseling with Genny for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Genny takes the time to listen to my concerns and makes me feel validated. She makes me feel like I am on the right path to healing. I can openly talk to her and trust her with my situations without feeling judgement. I was a little apprehensive about a virtual approach, but so far, I am really enjoying it. Genny provides me with documents that explain what I’m feeling and work sheets that help me work through some of my problems while helping me understand myself a little better. I am so grateful that I’ve started this program and can’t wait to meet the new me.

Genny is calm and gives me space to talk about anything, I talk a lot and she doesn't mind. She knows a lot about my conditions so I have a lot of faith in this process and am so glad I have engaged.

So far my time talking with Genny has been very helpful. She listens, and gives you different options that best suit how you feel most comfortable approaching situations. She's empathetic to your emotions. And she's super caring. She has even messaged me on a couple occasions after not hearing from me for a little bit to see how things were going. Will likely be continuing for a second month with this app, as it's been very helpful especially during this very stressful period of life! Thank you bunches Genny <3

Today I spoke with Genny about some real emotional stuff related to my home environment. She helped me understand things from a completely different perspective.
It has opened my eyes, the way I think and the way I view others (in a good way)
When I feel like I am hopeless and have no one to talk to, Genny and her warm toned voice just makes me feel like I am in a safe, secure and special place.
She is my go to and whoever has her as her counselor would need to thank their lucky stars because Genny Luppino is an absolute credit!
