I have a passion to help people work through issues and concerns so they can live a healthy and well balanced life. During life transitions, changes and development, one may be presented with many challenges. These challenges may impact us as individuals as well as our family systems, peer groups, school and/or careers. Often times individuals and families can benefit from working with a therapist through these bumps in the road. My experience as a school counselor and licensed professional counselor provide me a unique and comprehensive understanding of the stress, anxiety and depression that can often occur during these transitions as well. I am dedicated to helping clients develop healthy coping skills to manage thoughts, feelings and behaviors. During the counseling process we will explore problem-solving techniques, develop decision-making skills and collaboratively create cognitive and behavioral plans. I have a Master of Arts degree (MA) in Counseling Education and a Bachelor of Science degree (BS) in Psychology. I have over ten years experience as a school counselor and academic behavior interventionist in secondary schools. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). As an experienced counselor, I am qualified to address all academic and career needs as well as personal, social, emotional, and parental needs.

It is often said that life is a journey in which you experience"ups and downs". Unfortunately for many who experience a down time, there are difficulties overcoming barriers when trying to go back "up" again. I want to meet you where you are when you are overwhelmed by those barriers. I want to walk with you and work with you toward an improved quality of life while helping you arm yourself with the necessary tools to navigate through any future barriers. My name is Johnathan Lein. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW - LMSW-C) originally from Michigan with over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy. I graduated with my BA in Sociology/Social Work in 1983 and earned my MSW in Social Work in 2001. After working under clinical supervision I became fully licensed in 2006. I have spent my career working in three areas: Medical Social Work, Educational Social Work and Psychotherapy/Counseling. I have worked with young people, adults, geriatric adults, and individuals in the LBGTQ community. I have also been a school administrator in both the public and private sectors in two states. I want to highlight a "population" that I have vast experience with; and that is the Medical Provider population. Those who are medical students all the way to Doctors, Nurses, PA's and Nurse Practitioners. Some, but not all the areas I have experience in are anxiety, life changes, self-esteem issues, depression, grief, young adults on the autism spectrum, intimacy & sexual issues, sexual abuse survivors, trauma, career transition issues, learning disabilities and family issues. When meeting with a client, I use a Person Centered Approach. I want to guide you as you travel the journey toward a better place in life while utilizing my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I want to get to know you well, so that together we can approach your barriers and navigate toward a positive outcome. I always consider it a privilege to work with each individual who entrusts me as their therapist.

Coping with the difficulties and challenges of life is very specific to each of us as individuals. When we feel like life is pushing us beyond our limits, professional help may be what enables us to move forward and manage life's struggles in a healthy way. I'm Michelle Sherman, a licensed master Social Worker with 20 years of experience. I work with individuals utilizing a strengths-based counseling approach. Different therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)and stress reduction methods are provided in a safe, empathic, and nonjudgmental space to maximize treatment effectiveness. Earning your trust and creating a safe therapeutic relationship are very important to me.

Parenting in general and juggling the the demands of children with special needs are also a focus area. I have done a great deal of advocacy within schools to help families with IEP's and 504 plans. Exploring mindfulness techniques, addressing self regulation, challenging negative thinking patterns, and exploring "the whys" behind habits are some of the strategies I use to support clients. The individuals and families I work with have shared over the years that they find me to be open, caring, a great listener, warm, accepting and full of strategies, methodology and tools that have been helpful. Finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming. Hang in there! You are on your way and worth the effort and time it will take to find a therapist who will be a great fit.

I am a licensed professional mental health counselor with experience in both a private and community mental health setting.

Personal and professional history includes great exposure to a diverse set of life experiences and clientele. My focus is a client centered approach to therapy to help each individual live their best life and I believe, at our core, we all have the needed answers to our life's problems. My job is not to change or fix you; my job as a therapist is to bring those answers to the surface.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Beverly Hills.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Beverly Hills, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Beverly Hills or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills, 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 Beverly Hills 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.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Beverly Hills helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Beverly Hills therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 48025 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills 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 Beverly Hills, 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.

Beverly Hills 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.
