"In therapy we will develop skills to challenge and change thoughts, actions and feelings responsible for perpetuating behavioral health difficulties in your life. The first couple sessions will focus on assessing what's going on in your life by examining predisposing and perpetuating factors for the problems you are facing. We will discuss the role of the brain in these difficulties and how primitive parts of the brain contribute to the challenges you face. Together we will create a plan to address your symptoms, which we will continue to measure weekly throughout treatment. In session we will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction to retrain your brain, monopolize on your protective factors and develop new skills to reduce symptoms and maintain improvements in your behavioral health."

"As we work to identify obstacles in life and tools to change and improve our well being, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute. Taking an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Having therapy from your own home allows more time in your schedule. In the era of digital technology we have reached, we are able to have confidential care without the need to commute. When treatment is more accessible it is easier to address the problems we face before they become unmanageable. I look forward to working together in finding ways to thrive in life and for self discovery. If you are looking to move forward in life, you have found the right place."
Betty Sue, LCSW

"I believe relationships are the key to any therapeutic work, especially work with adolescents. Empathy and positive regard are extremely important when working with this often misunderstood population. I have worked with adolescents and young adults to address a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, substance use, trauma, identity, and grief. My training in evidence based practices allows me to integrate Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Practices, and Positive Youth Development into treatment. My therapy style is strengths-based, person-centered, and trauma-informed, meaning my work can be individualized to meet the unique needs of a variety of people. Providing services online allows me to reach clients who would prefer the comfort and privacy of their home, clients who live in Mental Health Provider Shortage Areas, clients who can't meet from 9-5 and clients who are all-of -the-above. I am so happy that you found me and I look forward to working together. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or to schedule your appointment."

"Hi, I'm Lindsay. I am excited to work with motivated clients to achieve the changes they are looking for. After years of agency work, I decided to pursue my dreams of private practice so I can engage in the work that I am passionate about. In my professional life, I have found great satisfaction in working with clients with anxiety and depression, and have experience in a variety of treatment modalities, ranging from traditional talk therapy to acupuncture, community-based counseling to biofeedback and neurofeedback. I have found that I work really well with other women in the helping professions! I aim to work together with you to develop a treatment plan that gets you the results you are looking for. I have been told I have a gentle, authentic, genuine style. Telebehavioral health can be helpful in crappy weather, if you're not feeling so good and don't want to leave the house, or if you don't want to wear actual pants and go out in public (hoo,boy can I relate to that one). It also increases access to under-served individuals and allows you to meet with a therapist who may be out of your immediate area that may be a great fit for you."
Along Kelly’s professional path, she has unintentionally become driven to understand trauma and the neurobiological detriments that occur as a result. Neuroplasticity, however is the belief that brains can heal, people can heal and there is hope. Relationships heal and much of Kelly’s clinical expertise is grounded in opportunities to engage in individual relationships and relationships with systems to invoke change. Kelly enjoys learning about the brain and finds that understanding the structural activity of the brain gives language and science to validate that there is hope. Kelly uses the art of her personality, humor and deep emotional connection to help make a safe platform for others to be vulnerable and heal. Kelly lives in Mid-Michigan and in her free time she loves being active outdoors. She is a boymom and dog mom. Her favorite past times are spending time with her sons playing at the creek, building tree houses, and mountain biking.
"I find relationship building to be an extremely important part of our clinical work together. Early session will focus on building that relationship and better understanding what brings you into treatment. We will continue to assess and evaluate the factors in your life contributing to behavioral health problems as well as the factors that promote healthy behavioral health and functioning. We will develop a treatment plan together, that addresses the areas of need you identify including what you want to be different in your life, what holds you back and supports we can utilize in treatment. If you are a minor, I believe that caregivers are really important to the process developing skills to improve your mental health; therefore it is important to include them in the first session so we can include them on the treatment goals to help them learn ways to guide and support you. Please let me know in advanced if you are not comfortable having your parent/guardian present as I also understand this may not always feel safe."

"I have 11 years of professional practice and nearly 40 years in personal experience. I am human. I have failed. I have made mistakes. And I have had my own growth journey, one that we are all capable of achieving. I truly believe that the key to a fruitful therapeutic relationship is authenticity. I value realness and asking the hard questions, while recognizing that I too, also have weaknesses and flaws. If you are seeking an austere, untouchable authority, I am not the therapist for you. However, if in your therapeutic experience, you hope to gain a collaborator in open and frank dialogue and solutions, I may be what you are searching for. I want to help you identify your inner strengths, potential, and strategies to find your way in unearthing the person that you know you are destined to be. In the words of EVI: I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine. I am mine."
Through professional and personal experience, I believe together we can accomplish amazing things. I have a diverse background of trauma training, grief and loss, and working with individuals who are terminally ill. Throughout my 12 years of being a clinical social worker and a therapist I have a tremendous amount of experience with children, families, teenagers, and adults. By building a relationship on trust and confidence I look forward to serving clients through telehealth to meet their individual needs. I truly believe in the power of therapy and what it can achieve to find inner calm and happiness. The first step is reaching out and believing change is possible. I am beyond excited to start this journey with you.

As a veteran, I've seen people in all forms of crises and facing all manners of difficulties in their lives. Working through marital and family crises, life transitions, career changes, severe traumas, depression, anxiety, and all manners of things was an every day experience for us and learning to cope with these issues can be difficult. Finding jobs, mending relationships, getting through depression - all things that can be worked on and I would love to help. Help can come in many forms. I practice by helping the client develop a sense of ability, confidence, and bravery while problem-solving and creating plans for moving forward. Many of life's most difficult problems can be worked through with time and bravery.

“It is my goal to bridge the gap between African American professionals and mental health. Oftentimes people must choose between their livelihood and their mental/emotional well being. When people appear to be performing well in the workplace their needs can go unmet, which is detrimental to their quality of life. I hope to provide a safe, therapeutic space for individuals who have historically not sought out mental health services to get the assistance needed. Given the current climate of our society I’d like to contribute to change by supporting my people in living healthy, happy lives.”

I think we can all agree, life is hard! The most honest, brave, powerful, and difficult thing we can do is reach out for support. Kudos to you for starting this courageous (and maybe scary) process! Needing support does not mean you are weak or broken, it means you are human. My goal as a therapist is to help you feel safe and comfortable bringing your whole, authentic self into our work together. At the risk of sounding cliché and corny, I am a firm believer in the healing power of laughter (seriously, there is science to back it up!). I find using humor, whenever appropriate, helps to disarm fears and facades while building a trusting relationship between client and clinician. In the safe space we cultivate together, we can explore internal narratives, as well as core values and beliefs that may be keeping you from being your best self. I believe my role as a clinician is to pass on the tools, skills, and wisdom I’ve learned through professional and personal experience so you can feel competent and confident navigating whatever life throws at you.
