I am a licensed psychotherapist in the states of Michigan and Maine and have worked as a counselor and life coach with individuals and families for over 30 years. My focus is on helping clients achieve satisfying relationships and greater joy in their lives regardless of what their experiences may have been in the past. I use an eclectic approach to therapy seeking to find and utilize the methods that are most comfortable and helpful to you. In addition to traditional modalities (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psycho Dynamic, Humanistic, etc.), I have extensive experience working with EFT (tapping) , Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. If you prefer a more traditional approach, that is what we will pursue, and if you are familiar with and interested in more energy based counseling that is available as well.
It is of utmost importance to me that you feel valued and respected as an individual as you pursue the the life that you want to live.

From our initial conversations, Norma immediately began to hone in on what I was dealing with and helped identify the larger issues at play. While still early, I do believe that working with Norma has started me on the path of transformation in my life that I have wanted for myself for a long time.
Norma is the best counselor I have ever had.
My life has completely changed since I started working with Norma... not just my life but also myself.
Thank you Norma for all your help, it means a lot!
Norma Beatriz is a wonderful person and counselor. I am so thankful Norma is in my life!!
Norma has proven to be a positive influence in my life. She has helped me to identify behaviour patterns, deal with emotions, self-esteem and perception. I would highly recommend her as a therapist. Her advice is practical, easy to implement and effective. I am grateful to have Norma as a therapist and thankful for her impact.
Norma is wonderful. She is just what I needed. She is understanding and supportive of how I’m feeling, helps me accept where I am at fault and is helping me figure out what is right for me.
Norma was so great at helping me see things from a different perspective! When you’re in your own head all the time like me, you overthink things and your opinions and judgements about yourself and the world can get constantly reenforced. Even over just the first session I had with Norma, some negative things I assumed to be true about my life, turned out not to be and that freed me up to see things in a new light. It is clear that Norma is an expert in this field and she helped me immensely! Would highly recommend Norma as a counselor to anyone struggling with finding positivity in their life, anyone looking for help seeing things in a new way, or for anyone looking for a great person to chat with who cares deeply!
Norma is a good therapist with a lot of experience, she is to the point and does not overindulge the clients so that you see the right path and get back into resourceful state as soon as possible.
Norma is an incredible therapist, I have been able to work through problems that I have carried for years. In each session you feel completely safe, seen and heard. Norma’s expertise and experience shows; I can not recommend her enough!
Norma has helped me tremendously! The knowledge and wisdom she has aquired over the course of her career and life experience has proved to be invaluable to me.
