A suburb of Detroit, Madison Heights has just over thirty thousand inhabitants who truly love their town. The town has tried and succeeded to keep the small town feel while still being named the “high tech hot spot.” Living in a small town can be a wonderful way to feel connected to others in the community but sometimes people just do not feel like they fit in. 

They may be suffering from social anxiety or depression, which can be treated easily by a mental health professional. The town of Madison Heights has plenty of high-quality experienced therapists and counselors who are trained to help in these situations. All you have to do is reach out and you can get help.

6 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello. My name is Tracey Reno and I bring with me, as a Licensed Professional Counselor, a wealth of life experience that has contributed to my passion for helping others. I have had the privilege to work with people from all different backgrounds with vastly different distress and concerns. And although we are each unique individuals with unique stories, one thing we have in common is a vulnerability we feel when taking a chance to share our deep struggles with another person. I get that. It is a difficult decision to make that takes courage and inner strength. Yet the support you will receive in doing so is positively transformative. This is the gift of therapy! A safe space, judgement free zone where you feel heard and treated with positive regard. This is my mission and is how I am dedicated to providing support for each and every person I am fortunate to work with. My approach is warm, empathetic, and person centered. Meeting people where they are in their readiness for change is where we start. I believe that people are the experts in their own lives and my role is to walk alongside them facilitating insight for the changes they would like to make to live the life they imagine. Empowering people to tap into their strengths to overcome their obstacles sharing the tools that will help them to do so is key. Positive psychology (strength based), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT- addressing negative/distorted thoughts), Mindfulness, Transtheoretical Model (stages of change) and Solution Focused interventions are all those I use. I have experience working with anxiety, panic, social anxiety, depression, weight management, relationship issues, infidelity, divorce, parenting, and stress management. In closing, a favorite quote that a professor shared during graduate school is one I like to pass along for helpful reflection during times of struggle - "There is nothing wrong with you, that can't be fixed by what is right with you." You can stand up to your obstacles and do something about them with the right support. If you are ready to take the next step, I am happy to work with you to help.

I am a Licensed Clinical and Macro-Level Social Worker with a School Social Work certification. I have over 20 years of experience working as a school social worker and therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, with a special focus on educational disabilities, cognitive processing issues, trauma and loss, and ADHD. I am very interested in the mind-body connection and the importance of developing autonomy, self-esteem, and healthy coping skills in order to live a healthy lifestyle. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I consider the client/therapist relationship to be the most important thing in counseling. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines trauma-focused, solution-focused, and motivational interviewing counseling styles. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe that everyone would benefit from engaging in the therapeutic process at one point or another in their life to support our navigation through the ever-changing and complex landscape of being a human in your own environment. I believe our interconnection to the people, systems, and communities that we interact with is similar to throwing a pebble into a pond, with tiny ripple effects all around us. We can't control the way other people act and feel but we do have the ability to identify and reflect upon what we have control over and develop concrete action plans to support better mental health.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Madison Heights counselor?

Before seeing your Madison Heights 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 Madison Heights.

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 Madison Heights 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 Madison Heights, 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.

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.
