Greetings, My name is Wendy, and I am a clinical social worker in the state of Michigan. For the past 20 years I have had the pleasure of helping individuals with neurocognitive disorders.

Social and family issues can contribute to stress and anxiety which can be exhausting. Counseling with Interventions aimed to increase self-awareness and self-understanding (Emotional Intelligence) with Positive Psychology will minimize negativity in one’s thinking and behavior, to develop a more optimistic attitude that will enhance, rather than disrupt one’s life. As a positive therapist and counselor, the use a variety of exercises and interventions has helped my clients identify their own positive traits and strengths to function in a healthy productive matter. As life altering events and everyday stressors affect us all, cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused therapy and techniques have found to be useful and practical. Additionally, my training as an interest-based mediator, is congruent with my motivational, and client-centered approach to living and healing. The goals of my practice include increasing self-awareness, improving the client’s ability to use self-direction to make desired changes, increasing clarity, improving self-esteem, and boosting the client’s self-reliance. Therefore, understanding how each member of a family is unique, helps to renegotiate, and maneuver life’s challenges. Likewise, it is important to understand that events in life occur with or without warning but understanding the importance of resilience improves one’s ability to thrive. I am looking forward to working with you.

Before seeing your Lincoln Park 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 Lincoln Park.

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 Lincoln Park licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

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 Lincoln Park, Michigan can be worth it.

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.
