Maggie has experience working with clients of all ages in a private practice setting, utilizing both individual therapy and psychological assessments. Maggie has specific experience working with individuals seeking bariatric surgery, neuropsychological disorders, as well as experience with those seeking more generalized counseling. She works from a person-centered perspective, as she believes the client should have input in how counseling sessions go and what they want to spend their time talking about and working on. Her work at Michigan Psychological Care includes both therapy and psychological assessments.
I help clients get to the root of their issues through the evidenced base and life approaches, be it life changes, midlife crises, or just need to get back on track. This is all done through a person-centered approach where we focus on the needs and desires of the client. Goals are attainable in any case, I only ask for honesty reflection of self.

Welcome, choosing a therapist is a very personal decision. I will bring to our work over 20 years of experience. I have extensive expertise working with individuals, couples, and families.

I have been working in the mental health field for 44+ years. I have seen many trends in therapy come and go but found the only thing that helps others is the techniques that they can use on their own outside of the therapist's office. It is my mission to help others help themselves.
We all want to live our best life, but sometimes anxiety, depression, or just the “stuff” in life gets in the way. Maybe you feel stuck in a job, relationship, or situation that just doesn’t bring you joy anymore. Maybe you get so worried about making a wrong choice that it's hard to make a choice at all. We all feel a little lost sometimes and just don’t know where to go from here, how to make our dreams a reality, how to feel fulfilled, how to have a purpose.

I am here to help you through your personal struggles, empowering you to live a life full of meaning.

Hi, I'm Jen. As a therapist, I work with individuals of all ages & their families. The therapy is collaborative in nature, working alongside clients experiencing a variety of stressors, such as anxiety or depression, within relational contexts. These stressors affect all types of relationships and our lives in general. My focus and intention with clients is to provide a space where they feel safe and comfortable to process concerns while implementing specific client strengths and developing new strategies to reach personal bests.
Our lives can take many different paths, and finding the path that meets our needs and values can be hard to navigate. It can leave us in a place of feeling lost, overwhelmed, broken, and disconnected from our sense of self. This sense of hopelessness can prevent us from seeing the power within ourselves. I would be honored to meet you where you are at, and be your hope holder until you are able to see the hope that is in every situation.
While life can bring great joy and success - it can also bring sadness and worry. It is in these times that a counselor can be most beneficial. I would be glad to provide you with a safe place to open up and explore the challenges you've faced. I believe that healing is possible and that life really can get better. Together, we can process how difficult life has been and we can begin to build hope and healing for your future.
I work with clients who may be experiencing fears, shame, guilt, anger, worry, depression, anxiety, the results of trauma, and those who need a stronger sense of self, value, direction, and hope. My goal is to see you become fully alive as who you are and to enjoy your life to the fullest. I am varied in my approach and often use a combination of person-centered, positive, psychological techniques combined with teaching clients scientific, practical methods for retraining neural pathways and changing unhelpful thought patterns into life-giving ones. I delight in the unique process of learning from and with each client.
Life can be complicated. These complications know no economic, age, sex, religious, or racial boundary. As a practitioner working with individuals to empower them is my passion and privilege. If you are currently working to navigate through a difficult time we can work together to set goals, realize and regain your strengths to develop a long-term plan for success. There are times when everyone needs to strengthen his or her coping skills, see the situation from another view, or simply say it aloud. There are also times when the work that needs to be done is very serious. And deep. And difficult.
Counseling is a unique partnership in which physical, emotional, spiritual and behavioral growth can take place. Working together, we can uncover your God-given potential, create goals, identify road blocks and move toward your healing and personal growth. My desire is to help you find joy, peace and freedom despite your circumstances.
