Sierra Johnson MA MLP

Specialties: Trauma, Inner Child Work, Spirituality

Locations: Virtual

Click here to learn more about Sierra!

I am the Social Media Coordinator and a therapist in the Private Practice program.

What are you looking for out of your therapy experience?

I provide an eclectic approach, primarily utilizing behavioral, humanistic, psycho-spiritual, and inner child modalities – with a specialization in complex trauma, shadow work, generational patterns, and the journey to authenticity. My practice is person-centered, meaning that I’m a guide in your exploration of self – I may be nudging and pointing things out, but you, as the client, are ultimately leading where we go. My goal is to enrich and point out the positive traits that you already possess, and offer acknowledgment into aspects of yourself or your circumstances that you maybe haven’t seen yet. This may look like exploring your emotional reactions, your conditioned behaviors, or even the way you think about yourself as an individual.

It is part of my psychological and spiritual practice to believe that we all have what we need to heal, but certain life circumstances may have covered up or hidden those attributes. The process of inner child work can look like uncovering hidden gems forgotten due to embarrassment, shame, bullying, or consistent invalidation. My preferred client is someone who is introspective, curious, and is open to challenging and looking at situations from multiple perspectives.

Healing isn’t linear, and no two individuals have the same healing process. Together we’ll figure out what your needs are and structure therapy around where you are presently. I look forward to working with you!

Chris Schrimscher MS LC

Specialties: DBT, Suicidality, Anxiety

Locations: Virtual & Ypsilanti

Click here to learn more about Chris!

I am the Program Director of the Private Practice program, as well as work as a therapist in this program.

I have experience in working with a diverse span of mental health conditions through my experiences in community mental health and private specialty clinics. I have found that I work particularly well with clients struggling with complex diagnoses and behaviors including Bipolar Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Self-Harm, and Dissociative Disorders. I believe that all individuals can benefit from therapy and have a particular passion for working with clients that identify within the LGBTQ community as well as adolescents, families, and young adults.

Life can be full of challenges and sometimes we need someone to talk to in order for us to feel like ourselves again. As a trauma-informed therapist, I believe in providing each of my clients with a nonjudgmental stance, empathy, and a caring attitude through their toughest moments.

I consider my clinical approach to be both person-centered and behavioral. As such, I believe that all clients are doing the best that they can with the skills that they have and that they can benefit from learning additional skills to implement between sessions. I believe that there is a great benefit to processing together in therapy as well as learning and trying skills in our everyday life. If you are looking for a therapist with a passion for discussing the “tough stuff” in life, consider me as a therapist.  I recognize that therapy can be challenging at times and It’s my hope that we can work together to make changes in your life at a pace that feels comfortable and effective. I would love to chat and see if I would be a good fit for you!

Jessie Katz LLMSW

Specialties: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief

Locations: Monroe, Virtual, & Ypsilanti

Click here to learn more about Jessica!

We live in a fast-paced, demanding, and confusing world. We experience trauma in many facets of our lives, almost on a daily basis. As you try to navigate it all, you may feel like you’re drowning, aimless, and overwhelmed. You want to feel confident in the choices you make, comfortable in your own mind and body, and capable of handling the obligations of your life.

I work with people like you who are struggling with imposter syndrome, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, trauma; people who are navigating life changes, grief, crisis, and the fear of the unknown. My approach is person-centered and solution-focused, meaning that I meet you where you are, at the intersection of all your identities and through the lens of the traumas you have experienced, and we will look for solutions to your concerns together, while acknowledging (and where possible, targeting) the systems of oppression that may be contributing to your pain. I provide space to face fears and realities you want to avoid, but know you need to address if you’re going to move past them. Together, we’ll explore techniques to turn down the noise and the expectations so that you can hear your own wants and needs, and we’ll work to strengthen your sense of unconditional self-worth.

I recently graduated from the University of Michigan with my MSW. I have worked as a crisis counselor for almost two years. I have completed trainings in trauma and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and I am always adding new skills to my repertoire. Before I became a therapist, I was a licensed attorney and used that expertise to empower Chicago residents to find answers to legal questions independently, support survivors of sexual assault within the criminal justice system, and strengthen community resources for domestic violence survivors and their pets.

It takes tremendous strength and courage to ask for help, to let go of familiar but unhealthy coping strategies in order to reach for unfamiliar peace. Join me in therapy and let’s explore ways to find your unique peace of mind.

Matt Stone LMSW CAADC

Specialties: Substance Use, Trauma, Justice-Involved, LGBTQIA+

Locations: Virtual & Ypsilanti

Click here to learn more about Matt!

Living with a mental health condition is a difficult path to walk. It can seem like there is no way out, but there is. Sometimes we struggle with the relationship with ourselves. This can happen through depression, anxiety, trauma or just a turn in life circumstance. When these things happen, we can find ourselves feeling isolated and alone. As a clinical social worker, I have a deep understanding of how our emotions can drive us.

We often can end up developing coping strategies that may end up being unhelpful. Sometimes we try to manage our mental health with substance use. This feels as if it works…for a time. Sometimes this ends up spiraling out of control and we find ourselves feeling worse than we did before. As a Certified Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor, I am here to help. I have years of experience working in recovery. As a person in recovery myself, I can understand the struggles, temptations, and pitfalls that face us on our journey. Together we can develop a comprehensive treatment strategy to help you transition into the lifestyle that you want, free from drugs and/or alcohol.

I treat depression, anxiety, past and current trauma as well as the consequences of substance use disorder. These consequences can include; relationship issues, job loss, and legal troubles such as incarceration and probation.

You do not have to experience these things alone. With support, you can make it through whatever it is that you are going through.

I provide Substance Use Assessments as well.

I have dual Master’s Degrees in both Criminal Justice and Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in the field as an LLPC for the past 11 years and have worked with individuals who have sexually offended for the past 7 years.

Life is a journey with many twists and turns as well as obstacles. I will serve as a support to help you recognize your

Let’s be honest, navigating this little thing called life can be utterly overwhelming at times. Whether it’s facing a new life chapter, recovering from a traumatic experience, battling anxiety or depression, coping with stress or burnout, struggling with questions of identity, or facing a combination of these challenges, one thing remains constant: the importance of compassion.

When working with my clients, I prioritize the creation of a safe and non-judgmental space where they can openly express themselves, fostering growth and empowering them to flourish beyond our sessions.
