Hello! I am a Clinical Social Worker in Michigan with more than 10 years of experience in a variety of settings and roles. I’ve worked with individuals and families experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, ADHD, ASD, relationship and parenting concerns. I think that life is like a river. Sometimes we get trapped by a rock or other obstacle in the river and struggle to get free. Sometimes the current is too fast and we can’t keep our head above water or we have lost connection with our current. We can end up on the side of the river, unable to see the next move or the way ahead. Years of experience in a wide range of settings and roles has taught me that we all have capacity to be the catalyst for change in our life. I look forward to developing a relationship that supports building capacity and competence in navigating the river of YOUR life.

Hello! Welcome! I am glad you're here! My name is Alexandra Boehm, although I typically introduce myself as Alex. I am a clinical social worker licensed in the state of Michigan. I graduated with my MSW from Saginaw Valley State University in 2019 and have been practicing in the field of social work and counseling since 2019. I have experience in the inpatient and outpatient mental health settings with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship concerns, infertility, and family concerns just to name a few. I believe that all of us can benefit from having an outside source to share and process our challenges with! By sharing with someone outside of your close circle of friends or loved ones, I will be able to provide additional support and a different perspective to your presenting problem or challenge. My approach to therapy is person-centered, meaning that I meet you where you are with your current challenges while providing a safe space for you to share your truths. I recognize that sharing your personal truths can be very difficult, and here you have a space where you feel can be accepted and understood without judgment, while also working together to develop the tools to address these truths and the challenges they may present outside of therapy. Again, I am very happy that you've taken this step in your journey! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Jonesville therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance.

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

Before seeing your Jonesville 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 Jonesville.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Jonesville 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 Jonesville 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Jonesville, 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.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

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. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
