Problems with depression can leave you feeling like a tree with no leaves. You may remember what it feels like to be full of happiness and love but it will seem like a distant memory. Your current life may feel empty and cold in comparison to your past. When you are in a situation like this, it can feel as if you will never return to the way that things once were.

Making the decision to contact a Huntington Woods-area online counselor will be helpful. Their therapy techniques and expert advice will change things for you. You can start to feel full of life again and the tree of your life will be green and full before you know it. Getting over depression may not be easy at first but it will be far simpler when you have the help of dedicated professionals. Contact an online counselor and you can speak to them whenever it is convenient for you.

32 years of experience as a therapist

I am a social worker with over 30 years of experience. My undergraduate degree is in Business and Psychology, and I have a master's degree in social work. My primary area of focus is working with couples and trying to help them heal their relationship. Through our work together we can hope to heal communication challenges and figure out how to build, or rebuild a healthy relationship. In addition...if a couple decides to end their relationship, together we can do this in a kind and compassionate way. My approach to helping people is eclectic...which means I tailor the treatment to the needs of my clients. I have been trained to listen attentively and to understand what is being presented by people I am working with. I believe in the tenants of social work which stress confidentiality and treatment without judgment. My experience is that not every therapist is a good fit for every client but the right fit can be life changing. I believe therapy is a gift someone gives to them self and it is an act of courage to understand that you need help and are willing to seek it. I look forward to helping you achieve your personal goals and help you have the peace of mind you seek.

I am a licensed Social Worker who has been counseling for over 45 years. I have worked with all ages and many kinds of people. I work well with those who face life changes of all kinds, and with people who find themselves needing more stability, freedom, and satisfaction in their lives or relationships. I have worked with recovery from trauma, and from dysfunctional or addictive family patterns. I have worked with chronic illness, and issues of aging and change. If you presently are looking for help with depression, anxiety, worries, confusion about your life or about leftovers from past events, I am ready to help. Counseling can start with who and where you are now, and move you through to be better, more satisfactory and healthy place in your life. Counseling is a way to look at your life and patterns, and help you heal from the past, make hard decisions in the present, solve difficult dilemmas, and work toward an even better future. Beyond that, it is a way to help you solidify your individual potential and identity, and build close and successful relationships. Whatever the reason for your wanting some help, I will use care, strength, and respect, as well as knowledge and skill to work with you and meet your goals. If things seem dark, we search for light and life. When you lose your way or a sense of who you are, we can find your identity and your relationship to life again. If you are coping with difficult circumstances, we can determine how best to cope, and whether to change your life. We can work by phone, video, live chat, or messaging. Scheduled weekly sessions are encouraged and available although not mandatory. We will start by gathering information, getting to know each other, and building a relationship. Thank you for caring enough about your life to contact me. I look forward to working with you.

I enjoy helping individuals who struggle with severe mental and physical limitations. I facilitate a weekly group "No Limits" for persons living with physical and or mental limitations to increase knowledge and awareness. The group enables us to create an environment and share stories of resilience and of the healing processes.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Huntington Woods area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Huntington Woods therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Huntington Woods due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Huntington Woods counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Huntington Woods.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice from a therapist. A Huntington Woods licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Huntington Woods, Michigan can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you.
