I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Board Certified and Licensed Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with over 20 years of professional experience in the mental health field. My counseling style is non-judgmental, collaborative, and compassionate. I provide a safe environment in therapy so that you are able to truly share what is on your mind. I specialize in helping individuals break free from fears, anxiety and stress that hold them back. These fears are often rooted in trauma, loss and other events. They tend to limit the ability to process emotionally difficult information. One of the ways I treat these symptoms is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as part of an overall treatment strategy. I often combine other methods such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and other evidence based practices to ensure the best outcomes. It’s my honor to share this important time in your life. I look forward to meeting you!

Welcome! My name is Margaret Millhench. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Michigan for seven years. I have worked with college students and clients on a part-time basis from home. The presenting issues have included anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, career difficulties, relationship struggles and life changes to name a few. I also helped many women experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault. My counseling style is humanistic and person centered with a holistic approach using the body with the mind. Emotional blocks are held in the body from past traumas. In the beginning, depending on your real needs and readiness, we would work to develop trust and support with coping skills. I would use centering and grounding techniques to help create a sense of safety. Eventually, I would use psycho-dynamic, somatic and mindfulness techniques to help express the language of the body. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. Treatment would follow your real needs. I hope to have the opportunity to meet you! Margaret

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Michigan can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
