It is our mission at Journey Counseling Center, to inspire and ignite hope, passion, learning, and growth. To offer a safe and healthy environment for change. To treat each individual with respect, dignity, and honesty on their journey of recovery. We aim to uncover and empower growth toward each client’s greatest and most evolved self.
We each provide comprehensive treatment for adults, including Couples and Individual therapy. We also offer services to address stress management, life adjustment assistance, blended family issues, and substance use treatment. Each individual who enters services will have a unique need and therefore a specific plan for treatment will be developed just for them. We also provide telehealth treatment by video or phone.
Each individual’s treatment is specifically tailored to meet their needs and assist them in reaching their goals. Once an assessment is completed you will work with your therapist to develop goals for your treatment. This will include any skills you would like to learn, behaviors to change, or issues you would like to have different. Then at each session, you will be working with your therapist to determine the best way to accomplish those goals.
Telehealth is the process of receiving treatment by video or phone. This increases the flexibility of accessing services due to transportation issues, busy schedule, weather, etc. Being able to offer this option is particularly beneficial to college students who live at home and then away at school, in addition to clients who travel for work.
Treatment sessions can be provided remotely through our HIPAA compliant electronic medical record, Simple Practice. Clients can download the free application on the device of their choice to participate in their session from any secure location. Treatment can be provided anywhere in the state of Michigan as permitted by licensing boards. This service can be provided in any secure and confidential location the client deems acceptable. Additionally, for couples treatment, both parties can log into the system separately, if needed.
One individual in the couple (not married or married) is the identified client. This person is who is effected more by the conflict or issues that are being faced. That means this individual can identify symptoms they are experiencing due to the relationship problems, ei. stress, sleep problems, anxiety, worry, sadness, crying, agitation, irritability, anger, changes in appetite, etc. This person should be the one who schedules the appointment and completes the initial paperwork. However, in some situations, both individuals may be asked to complete paperwork. The sooner these issues are addressed the better given the amount of damage that can be done to the relationship when the issues are not being resolved. It is best for children not to attend these session.
Multiple methods of treatment are utilized in doing work with couples and the specific treatment used will depend on the individuals and the particular concerns they are experiencing.
