Susan Gross, PsyD, LP, CAADC

Licensed Psychologist, Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Interventionist

Within driving distance of Pontiac

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative and innovative. As a humanistic psychologist, I use evidence-based treatment to offer what I needed most when I was struggling with my son's addiction and suicide . . . compassionate, non-judgmental support and strategies. I am skilled in crisis intervention and work with high-risk/high-conflict individuals and families. I refer to a vast network of addiction and psychiatric treatment facilities throughout the U.S. I am often the last hope when other approaches have failed.

How does Psychodynamic Psychotherapy differ from other kinds of therapy? Otherwise known as Insight Therapy, we will explore the different ways that your mind (conscious, pre-conscious, unconscious) is thinking, and causing you to feel, and therefore behave (inside and outside the self), and how / why that may be problematic for you. We may look at early developmental stages and struggles, and how they may have formed patterns in you life. We will look at how your experiences have shaped your values, wants, needs, and boundaries (weak or rigid). We will explore your pain, but also your hopes and dreams, and help you to learn new skills, identify goals and take the steps to achieve them!

Sally Palaian, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Pontiac

I have been in practice for over 25 years helping people to change — to discover who they are inside, and stretch to fulfill more of their potential. I love helping my clients learn to live their own life and lifestyle, not someone else’s. By providing support as you untangle yourself within relationships, jobs, and a life that is no longer working, I can help you learn the skills needed to make positive changes.

Psychotherapist

Joe Kort, Ph.D., MSW

Licensed Social Worker

Within driving distance of Pontiac

We have several approaches to psychotherapy here at the center. We are humanistic in that there is not a cookie cutter approach in working with people. What works for some may not work for others. We tailor your work to your personality and your history. People often say they don't want to focus on the past because it is over and there is nothing that can be done about it. However, if you are recycling your past in the present and doing what we call, "returning to scene of the original crime" in the present, then you are already stuck in the past. Our work with you is to understand what you are recycling so that you can leave the past behind and stop it from interfering with your life.

Psychotherapist

Michael Govan, MA, LLP, LPC, LSGC, EMDR II

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Pontiac

Psychotherapy is just a fancy word for the process of healing that goes on in a Counseling office. When clients come to my office, I show hospitality and offer something to drink. We have soft music playing and just begin to talk about the areas of interest that have brought them in. From that first session, I determine what is wrong and what needs to happen in order to facilitate the change my clients are hoping for. As a matter of fact, I write out two goals for each client from what they've talked about, each with 3 or 4 objectives to reach those goals! I guide you and hold you accountable as needed until you reach these goals. Come on in and let me help you do the same!!!
