Michigan is known for its Great Lakes and for Kellogg Cereal. Your life can be compared to a bowl of cereal. Sometimes, the cereal is great and a part of a balanced breakfast. Other times, you forgot the milk, or the cereal gets too soggy. 

 

A counselor can be like the best breakfast you’ve had, giving you motivation and the nutrition you need to start the day. Pour yourself a heaping bowl of good mental health today.

Counseling really does change lives. After practicing for over 25 years I can attest to the fact that it works when the foundation of trust is present between client and therapist. I have an undergrad degree in psychology and masters in clinical social work, however, experience is key. Life offers its own degree of sorts as well, and I have learned that clients "do not care how much you know until they know how much you care!" I care and it shows...so I have been told. My personal experience is extensive -- providing insight into most issues of life includin...

Hello! First off, congratulations on taking this next step forward! If you’re here, it’s probably not because you’re feeling great about life at the moment. In fact, you might be feeling pretty miserable. The good news is that we can make that misery work for you! (It ought to be good for something, right?) Strangely enough, emotional pain is often what forces us to finally take steps in dealing with our problems, whatever they might be. Many of us stay stuck in our problems--and therefore our pain--far, far longer than we need to. Change is hard. Maybe it’s ...

You’re trying your best, but life didn’t used to be this hard. Things aren’t going right. You notice it’s harder to be happy, to feel connected, or even to get out of bed in the morning. It feels like you’re failing...like you aren’t good enough. You’re tired of pretending to be okay. On the inside you feel so sad, worried, and angry. You’ve pushed things down and ignored it, but you wonder how much longer you can do that. You’re used to fixing your problems on your own, but this time you can’t figure it out. You’re stuck. You want help. You’re not alone. Tog...
