20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed professional counselor with a PhD in psychology from Michigan, I have over 15 years of experience in outpatient therapy. I have worked with people who have a broad range of concerns including depression, anxiety, life change issues, career challenges and changes, grief counseling, educational challenges, and phobias. I have worked with people who experience obsessive-compulsive disorder, anger management issues, relationship issues, body image concerns, and self-esteem issues. I have worked with people who are having difficulty with coping, emotional strife, aging concerns, and serious health issues. I have worked with LGBTQ+ clients, transitioning teens and adults, teens, adults, the senior population and those from both affluent and economically disadvantaged families. I am eclectic with a down to earth approach, in other words, I use a variety of approaches and techniques to help based on the person’s individual needs and I am a strong believer in homework in therapy. That is, the person will have work to do outside our sessions that will assist in the individual more readily meeting their goals. The goals established will be developed in a collaborative manner between myself and the individual. The sessions will be interactive and unique to the individual and their needs. I treat everyone with respect and do not make judgments. My goal is to help and I consider myself a natural born helper and counseling as a collaborative process in an environment, that is safe and empowering where all are accepted. Counseling is a process that some individuals use temporarily and for some long term, whichever a person chooses I am here to help. Participating in counseling is a step toward self-awareness and I understand how difficult it can be to face complex issues that hinder everyday life. Let’s talk!

As a counselor, my approach focuses primarily on cognitive behavioral therapy and on solution-oriented therapy. Some of the issues I can help with include depression; anxiety; stress management; relationship difficulties; parenting challenges; divorce; grief and loss; and trauma. I specialize in working with adolescents 12+ and with adults of all ages.

In case you or a loved one are struggling with these issues, I can tailor my approach accordingly. At our initial visit, you’ll be welcome to say as much about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing. If you already have an idea of what you might like to achieve through our work together, that would be helpful for me to know… but in case you are not sure yet, that’s ok too – we can figure it out together! Regardless of how much or how little experience you may already have in therapeutic settings, I aim to help you identify and focus on concrete, achievable goals which I hope will lead to positive outcomes in your life.

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” ~David Richo Good day! My name is Dr. Lucetry B. Dalton and I am fully licensed clinical psychologist in the great mitten state of Michigan, where I was born & raised. I offer virtual telehealth psychotherapy services utilizing an evidence-based integrative therapeutic approach based on the individualized clinical need of the patient. My sessions tend to be very interactive, engaging, and collaborative with a touch of humor and fun as appropriate. I enjoy learning just as much from my patients as they learn from me and I offer a safe, secure, trusting, & judgement free zone to my patients where they can be their true authentic selves and say whatever is on their mind, as they will get the same in return from me. I typically suggest "therapeutic homework assignments" that are often brief & enjoyable in nature, but also challenging with the purpose of encouraging the patient to engage in some deep self-reflection, critical thinking, & cognitive reframing in addition to learning to view situations and people from various perspectives. Although patients may present with similar presenting problems, I do not treat no two people exactly the same and my therapeutic approach is tailored to each individual based on their personality, interests, & clinical need. I have over 10 years experience working in the mental health field as a clinician in various states (NC, DC, MD, PA to name a few) where I have resided throughout my education, training, & career. My experience involves year of providing mental health services to individuals across the lifespan of various cultures & backgrounds, which include but not limited to children/adolescents, adults, elderly, couples, & family as well as members of various ethnicities & minority communities. "We are here to listen…not to work miracles… We are here to help people discover what they are feeling, not to make the feelings go away… We are here to help people identify their options, not to decide for them what they need to do… We are here to discuss steps with people, not take steps for them… We are here to help people discover their own strength, not to rescue them and still leave them vulnerable… We are here to help people learn to choose, not to make it unnecessary for them to make difficult choices… We are here to provide support for change…" ~ Anonymous

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a McBride 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. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

McBride therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of McBride therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

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

Before seeing your McBride 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 McBride.

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 McBride 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 McBride 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 McBride, 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.
