20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Aanii, Welcome to Better Help. I’m honored to be considered to walk with you on your personal healing journey. My name is Roxsanna Stenuis and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Michigan. I completed my Master’s of Social Work at Michigan State University. My clinical internships were in Domestic Violence and Geriatric Assessment. Upon graduation I directed a Child Abuse Program within a Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse setting. Additionally I’ve worked providing ER crisis intervention and psychiatric screening. I spent the remaining 15 years providing outpatient therapy within Community Mental Heath. Throughout my career I’ve worked and treated a variety of mental health conditions; with specific expertise in Mood, Anxiety, Borderline Personality and Substance Use Disorders . In addition, I have extensive experience treating past trauma. My theoretical perspective is eclectic, pulling primarily from Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy’s and Mindfulness-based Interventions.Over my career I have had the opportunity to be trained extensively in CBT, DBT, MI, SA, trauma, and have found no one intervention fits all. I personally believe finding the right therapist is like finding a new pair of jeans. You may know your size but each jean brand will have a different fit. Therapists, too, are similar. We may all have the same degree, trained in the same interventions, however we each will “fit” differently. If you should choose to explore our fit, previous clients have appreciated my genuineness, dependability, trustworthiness, and warmth. The most important component to effective therapy is the therapeutic relationship. My goal is to provide you with a safe, nonjudgmental, empathetic alliance whereby you can identify, explore and process your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I can sincerely commit to being fully present in the moment with you. I will communicate in a genuine, easy manner avoiding diagnostic terms and medical jargon. I’m open to direct feedback and encourage a collaborative approach to therapy. I strongly believe we are the experts of our own lives and will, therefore, seek to maintain a supportive non-directive approach. If you want to look at my schedule please click on Better Help. I look forward to talking to you.

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

Before seeing your Walled Lake 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 Walled Lake.

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 Walled Lake 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 Walled Lake 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 Walled Lake, 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.

If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. 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.
