Our psychotherapists are licensed by the State of Michigan and may hold various specialty credentials. Different therapies are often variations on an established approach, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. For many therapies, research involving large numbers of individuals has provided evidence that treatment is effective for specific disorders. These “evidence-based therapies” have been shown in research to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other disorders. Therapy is designed to enable the individual to practice techniques in their home and community, and therefore, involves “homework” assignments and commitment to the therapeutic process. Needs and progress are assessed on an ongoing basis.
Facilitated by a licensed and certified Professional Art Therapist, art therapy uses art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and foster self-esteem and self-awareness. Additionally, art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, cultivate emotional resilience, and promote insight.
