10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am an addiction specialist based in Michigan. I have been providing intensive group therapy (IOP) for over 10 years to all ages of people who need help learning different habits that do not destroy their lives. In Michigan I have the highest certification and qualifications for this type of counseling called Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor or CAADC. I enjoy getting to know the whole person, their challenges, where they have come from and where they would like to go. Addiction is a disease that takes over your life and starts making all of your decisions. I can help you begin to make the decisions again. Listening and truly hearing what you say is my business. Together we can brainstorm about what you have already tried and other ways we can fight your habits. When I am not counseling, I enjoy northern Michigan, kayaking with mutts, biking with motors and without and exploring our beautiful world.

Hi, I am Dr. Steve Murray, a licensed Clinical Psychologist and licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Michigan. I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Detroit. I have worked in the field of mental health for 48 years in various settings (hospital, clinic, group home, school). I have provided therapy to all ages, diverse socioeconomic status, and to individuals with a wide range of mental health issues ranging from stress reactions, adjustment life change issues, mood and anxiety issues, trauma, intellectual concerns, criminal forensic matters, and individuals with very serious chronic mental illness diagnoses. My training has been diverse, including psychodynamic, behavior modification, and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). My current theoretical approach is CBT generally, with a mix of other points of view. I view myself as a coach and cheerleader to provide support, encouragement, new perspectives, and at times, direction. I view therapy as a means for people to make progress in the areas of their life which they choose and not for the purpose of judgement and/or embarrassment. I like to think I have a great sense of humor and believe that positive humor is a great means to achieve a more healthy outlook and better health. I love science and technology, which is especially personal for me as I am blind and would never want to part with my computer and smartphone as they allow me independence. I have an undergraduate degree in Instrumental Music from Central Michigan University. I promote music for pleasure and health. Nature walks and reading are high on my list of healthy activities. I also have an active interest in current events of all sorts.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Bloomfield Hills counselor?

Before seeing your Bloomfield Hills 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Bloomfield Hills.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Bloomfield 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 with a Bloomfield Hills counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Bloomfield 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.

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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
