Hello and welcome to my page! All of us as therapists have lots of letters after our name, mine are LPC, NCC. You may wonder what it all means. Mine means that I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who is also nationally certified. Meaning I can move more easily from my home state of Michigan if I choose to having met the requirements for almost every state in the US rather than just Michigan's requirements. I have been doing one on one counseling as well as family counseling for approximately 6 years now. I began my career working at a partial hospitalization program running group meetings for clients who were in crisis. I love it all, I love helping people figure out their issues or just how to help you best to improve your lives overall. I was a double major at Michigan State University in Psychology and Criminal Justice. I have a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University and have completed almost all of the course work towards my PhD. I attend many seminars throughout the year in order to learn new methods, keep up to date on current research and medications as well as to meet new people and get fresh perspectives. I don't have one particular treatment approach that I exclusively use. I have found that each person is different and I need to be able to change and adapt to them. I do have favorites however and those are Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I like CBT because it helps identify negative or faulty thinking and helps you see things more clearly in order to respond to them in a healthier way. I like SFBT because it focuses on solutions. You tell me what goal you want to reach and we work together to get you there. If you're ready to start, then I am too!

I believe it is really important to accept yourself where you are right now and I want you to know that I accept you as you are. One of my favorite ways of coping is through Mindfulness Exercises. This practice helps people manage stress and uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. Mindfulness techniques can bring you into the present moment and clear the way for new ways of thinking, managing challenges and relating to others. As a LMFT, my mission is to connect clients to their fullest potential and teach them ways to bring meaning, joy and success into their lives. Since 2002, I have led mindfulness and visualization that have helped clients make these positive changes in their lives. I also use techniques drawn from Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Through exploring your situation further and getting to know you better as a whole person (including your strengths), I will be able to help you feel more enjoyment and satisfaction with your life. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from UCLA and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from CLU. I grew up in Los Angeles in a very racially diverse neighborhood and learned early in life to accept and respect others. I am Hispanic Caucasian and a first generation college graduate. I enjoy leading mind-body practices for personal, spiritual and sports performance development. From 2011-2022, I lead yoga, meditation and mindfulness groups all around the country both in person and virtually during the pandemic. Through collaboration with other leaders, I have learned the latest technology and techniques in optimal health and performance and use these exercises with my clients. I also created an awareness card game called Witness Cards to help clients easily and comfortable identify areas for growth and change. Most enjoyable for me is empowering clients to accept themselves as they are and when they are ready make changes in a comfortable confident way. Through guided imagery, deep relaxation and awareness exercises, I help clients connect to their own unique gifts and personal calling.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wyandotte 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 Wyandotte due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Wyandotte may not take health insurance, some in the state of Michigan may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Michigan you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Wyandotte, Michigan working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Wyandotte above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

You can also try a Wyandotte therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Wyandotte therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in MI, providers may be booked out with clients.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wyandotte 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Wyandotte 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Wyandotte, 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.

Wyandotte has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. 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?

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.
