Congratulations on taking steps towards a more fulfilling, happier and inspired life!
My name is Michele Clark and I am an individual and family counselor licensed in Michigan with 20 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical/sexual trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, which I refer to as “care-apy”. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I provide a judgment free space and do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, motivational interviewing and mindfulness counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to make changes in your life in order to live the life you deserve. If you choose to work with me, I will support and empower you to succeed in your life goals!

She’s the BEST

It’s been a wonderful experience having Michele Cark as my therapist for the past couple of months. We started working together back in September 2021, and at that time my mental health was declining due to sleep disturbances, anxiety, and multiple stressors. With Michele by my side, I was able to overcome my adversities, and I’m proud to say that I have evolved into a better person due to her empathic stance, positive reassurance, and permission to live for myself, and not for what others wanted for me. I have worked through my triggers, negative thought patterns, and cycles of doubt and uncertainty about the future. Thank you, Michele, for creating a safe space to heal, learn, and grow!

Michelle is amazing, I’ve been meeting with her for quite a few months now and she is by far the best therapist I’ve had. I have had many attempts at trying therapy and this is the only time I have stuck to it and it is thanks to her. She is kind and also hilarious, which I greatly appreciate. I always leave my appointments feeling better.

Michelle is amazing and a great therapist. She’s a great listener and continues to help you in an individual and specialized way. Michelle helped me with my first months of school and her wisdom was great!
