Michigan Residents and International Clients
Intake & Assessment
We will start you journey with you by completing all intake and assessment paperwork for your needs for therapy. This process allows the therapist to understand your past, present and where you want to be in your future. We have created one form to have you complete and submit via a secured email address. We then go over this form with you in your first session in case anything is unclear and needs clarification.
Please take the time to become a member if you wish to book online appointments. Once a member we will email you instructions for the secure HIPPA compliant platform. Please include your name and if you would just like members access or therapy services in the member request. Members also get access to mental health blogs and tips.
Your next session with your therapist is the development of your goals for therapy. We work together with you to create goals that are attainable for you during therapy. These goals will be ones that you have made a conscious decision to work on in therapy to provide yourself with a healthier life.

Emotional Support Letters & Therapy
Are you in need of an emotional support animal (ESA) ? Do you struggle with PTSD, anxiety, depression, post-partum depression, social phobias, and phobias, then you may qualify for an ESA. An emotional support animal is different from a service animal in that an ESA is any animal of your choosing, that provides emotional support for you to help you cope with your mental health diagnosis. You are responsible for the training and well-being of the animal. Having an ESA letter from a Licensed Mental Health Professional can assist you with housing and airline travel. An ESA is covered under the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 (ACAA) and Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act).
We provide an assessment and a letter for an emotional support animal, additional therapy is always recommended but not required to receive your letter. We complete the assessment via tele-health (virtually) and then email you with the PDF copy of the letter as well as mail an original copy of the letter to you. This process takes 24 to 48 hours after the assessment is completed.
