Detroit Mom partnered with the amazing people at Healing Home Counseling Group to bring you this post. All opinions are our own.

*last updated 4/19/2024

Mental health awareness is so important. Here at Detroit Mom, we want to support you however we can. So, we’ve put together a guide to therapists in and around Detroit, with the help of the readers in our community. These therapists are personally recommended by our readers, some of whom have also shared why they recommend seeing the specific provider. If you need support, and are looking for a therapist, please know that you aren’t alone. We are here for you, and so are the readers in our community.

In addition to our guide, we also have a Mental Health Community Group on Facebook that you can request to join. In the group, you’ll find local mothers who are walking similar paths as you. You’ll find support, encouragement, and maybe even a few new friends. On our main website, you’ll also find personal posts from some of our contributors about their journeys with mental health.

All our clinicians are perinatal mental health (PMH) trained or certified. Some of our staff are also EMDR trained with an emphasis on BIPOC and perinatal trauma.

Healing Home Counseling Group offers an array of different therapy modalities due to the unique backgrounds of all the therapists on staff. Some of these include CBT, EMDR, play-based therapy, and trauma informed care. Healing Home Counseling Group’s goal is to make you feel like you have a “home away from home” that is calm and nurturing.
