Julie Alexander, LPC

julie@michigantherapyandcounseling.com

Specialities: Anxiety, Codependency, depression, family conflict, gender identity, grief/loss, LGBTQ, Relationship issues, self-harming, self-esteem, sexuality, spirituality, stress, women's issues, trauma

Population: Adults

My approach to therapy draws on ideas rooted in client-centered, cognitive behavioral, and existentialist theories. Clients are all unique in their goals and search for meaning in life. My initial aim is to provide a nonjudgmental space for self-exploration. I offer a safe space for clients seeking hope. I guide clients through their own introspection which leads to revelation and healing. I also apply a cognitive behavioral lens to challenge and reframe automatic thoughts that hold clients back. I believe that human beings can change our relationship to our emotions by experiencing them mindfully rather than avoiding or trying to get rid of them. I offer insight based on training in CBT techniques, experience, and intuition, but it is from within the client that the answers emerge. I am honored and privileged to journey alongside clients to help them become their most authentic and happiest self. 

Victoria Eddy

victoria@michigantherapyandcounseling.com

I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and obtained my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Gardner-Webb University. Historically, I have experience with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, addictions, etc. I have counseled adults in individual and group settings and would prefer clients ages 16 and older. All cultures, sexual orientations, and gender identities are welcome. 

 

As your therapist, I want to meet your needs and personalize therapy to work toward the goals that we set together. To optimally meet your needs, I would ask that you regularly give feedback to me based on what you feel is going well and areas you would like to change. The purpose of our therapeutic relationship is to work toward the goals and areas of your life that you would like to be different. My goal with you in therapy is to work toward wholeness, restoration, and coping strategies so you can lead a satisfying life. The work that we do together in therapy is only the beginning and is meant to give you tools in your toolbox for the future and attunement to personal and relational formation.

 

I will utilize an individualized approach for each person. We all approach our lives in different ways, so I will tailor my approach to your individual needs. This will include approaches taken from various therapeutic approaches such as, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused, and person-centered. It is important to practice the things you learn in sessions in your daily life. This may not come easy at first, but over time you will begin to see improvements. Some examples of assignments I might utilize are journaling, breathing exercises, mindfulness exercises, or short readings. Your experience is my top priority, so feel free to reach out with any concerns. 

Angela Cook-Hoekwater, LPC

angela@michigantherapyandcounseling.com

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Michigan with over 13 years of experience. My clients often have a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and LGBT. I also helped many people who have experienced physical abuse, including sexual, trauma or emotional abuse.

 

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines humanistic, and person centered counseling along with trauma focused and other evidenced based therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

 

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

 

I look forward to working with you!

 My approach to therapy involves a balance of validation and acceptance with skill building and growth. I strive to create a space where you feel safe to become your truest, most authentic self.

Whether you are working through past trauma, learning skills for managing anxiety, or finding healthy outlets for your emotions, I will walk with you.

 

I am most passionate about working with parents, those involved in the child welfare system, and youth who have experienced trauma. By promoting self-care and healthy boundaries, I believe that anyone can achieve mental wellness. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Educational Studies from Alma College.
