Hello! My name is Cecelia Salamone and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from the State of Michigan. I have a M. A. in Counseling and B.S. in Education with Certification – Secondary and Elementary. I believe it is important to create an accepting, respectful, compassionate, encouraging environment. My approach is to develop a relaxed, empathic, non-judgmental, connection. Sometimes the first step is most challenging. I applaud you for reaching out to BetterHelp for counseling. To help reduce stress, anxiety or other negative emotions, I use Emotional Freedom Techniques or Tapping.
We all have a unique story. Perhaps you have had your story since you were a child, teenager, or possibly a few years or months ago. I would be honored if you would take me into your confidence and share it. You have lived your life and you are the expert. I will work cooperatively to devise approaches and solutions that work best for you. We will strive to reach your potential and work towards a sense of healing, joy, self-understanding and HOPE. Since Laughter is the Best Medicine – I have a great sense of humor and laughter is part of who I am. Laughter helps us stay mentally healthy, relaxes the body, reduces stress and anxiety.
Your goal as you travel your journey - Hope, Healing, Joy, Laughter
Counseling is a valuable investment. You are taking steps to prioritize your life. I look forward to having the opportunity of working with you.

Cecelia is wonderful! She will be honest, but also very caring and supportive. This is exactly what I need so I can understand myself better and work on growth. I always feel like a weight is lifted after our sessions.

Written on Jun 19, 2023 after therapy with Cecelia for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning career difficulties
Cecelia has helped me so much from the very start of our sessions. From relationship problems to insecurities, issues at work and family troubles, she has helped me through it all with her amazing guidance. Cecelia holds me accountable, gives me specific “assignments” on what to work on, and most importantly makes me feel like I am seen and special and worth while. Finally, Cecelia knows how to LAUGH and we are always able to see things in a new, positive light by the end of every session. Cecelia is the best!!! She has helped me in so many ways and I always look forward to every session.
