A true integrative psychiatry considers complementary/alternative medicine in a critical manner for mind,body & soul connection. It enables freedom from trauma pain & ability to design future. It requires a good insight into trauma informed care & safe space to recover. Psychiatry can often overlap with medical issues, so as double board-certified NP in Family Medicine & Psychiatry, I am comfortable capturing & addressing both medical and psych issues in a holistic manner. Afterall, we are more than just diagnosis.This includes anxiety, severe depression, eating disorder,personality disorder & complex trauma for adults and children.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Detroit, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Detroit listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
