Detroit is known for its music, particularly rock and roll. Your life can be just like a rockstar. At times, you may feel like you’re rocking and rolling, living on top of the world. The next, you end up crashing, burning out, and you feel like your career is over. 

A counselor can be the manager who isn’t there to mess you over, but instead letting you keep on rocking. Speak to a Detroit-based counselor today and see what they can do for you.

I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 17 years. My belief is we are all subject to roadblocks on this journey of life. The choices we make determine out path. Often we take a detour due to emotions and or events from our past. We may engage in unhealthy choices because that is how we got through life. We know we struggle but are not sure of how to break the cycles. I feel a life worth living is a life in balance. If we put too much time and energy in one aspect of life, it is bound to cause an imbalance. To be healthy in mind, body, and soul, we ne...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Detroit area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Detroit, elsewhere in the Wayne county.

What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Detroit ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Michigan will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Detroit and elsewhere throughout the state of Michigan, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $40 to $70 per week (billed monthly).

Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above able to work with people like you in or around Detroit offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs. Whether that’s via sms texting with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges.

How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. In addition to developing healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people in your everyday life.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. A Detroit therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 672,795 people in the city of Detroit, finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need today.
