ABOUT US

Jarrette Wright-Booker LPC, CAADC

Lead Therapist

I have worked in the human services field for the past 17 years completing a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at the University of Michigan in 2003 and Master of Arts in Community Counseling at the University of Detroit-Mercy in 2010. I am a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor and have been providing talk therapy for individuals and couples for the past nine years.

A natural visionary and nurturer, I have learned that most important element in healing and change is relationship. As such, you can expect to experience an inclusive space, free of judgment and full of hope, patience and compassion. I am trauma informed and anti-oppressive, encouraging action as the antidote to fear. I am an eclectic therapist leaning toward Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Mindfulness. I am also Brainspotting (BSP) Phase 1 trained.

I offer virtual/video and in-person sessions for: emotional exhaustion, work-life disharmony, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, infidelity, trauma and life transitions. My specialties include: high functioning anxiety, perfectionism, low self esteem and attachment related issues connected to childhood emotional and/or psychological trauma.  I believe that we all have our own answers. I endeavor to help you discover those answers while providing support, encouragement and strategies that promote self-awareness, healing and change.

Therapist

I am a firm believer that if you change your thoughts, your behaviors will change as well.  Life happens to all of us. I am here to support you through your journey to wellness and healing.  Are you tired of holding on to unresolved issues and ready for a change?

I am a military wife and mom and understand the challenges that come along with constant life transitions and just plain old uncertainty.  Life can be scary or it can be a journey full of discovery and adventure.  Depends on how you look at it.  Problem is, sometimes the scary things can be too close for us to see anything else. What would happen if you changed your focus?  What would happen if you accepted that the scary things can exist in the same space as fulfillment and joy? Would you choose the scary things or the fulfilling things? While we can't prevent the scary things from happening, we can choose not to be led by them.

 

I am a graduate of Central Michigan University, with a Master’s Degree in Counseling. I specialize in helping women who struggle with fear of failure, busyness, self-esteem issues, life transitions, marital issues, work-life balance, stress and burnout.  I use an eclectic style of therapy to guide you and help facilitate your growth as we work toward cultivating the best version of yourself.

Life comes with its fair share of challenges that affect our lives and the lives of those around us. 1 in 5 of us live with a mental illness and many of us will experience anxiety or depression connected to life transitions at least once in our lives.

Therapy can help.

 

I graduated from Wayne State University with a Masters of Education in Counseling.

You've got it all together on the outside but on the inside you’re a wreck. You’ve checked all the boxes and found that adulting is not all it’s cracked up to be.  The hustle and bustle of work has taken over your life.  Your friends seem to be moving on and you feel left behind. Racing thoughts keep you up and fatigue and decreased motivation keep you from doing all of the things.  Maybe you’re not as optimistic about your future and you’re feeling trapped but most of all, too scared to admit it.

 

You often find yourself thinking:  this can’t be IT.  You’re right, because this IT is not yours. Let me help you discover your  IT.

I specialize in helping young adults brave the new world of adulthood by supporting them in uncovering their sense of purpose and belonging in the world. You’ve had the answers all along.  My role is to help you discover those answers while cultivating your strengths, building your self-awareness and developing the tools that best help you become the change you seek. 

I have expertise in treating: depression, anxiety, stress and burnout, FOMO and life transitions. I also provide family therapy. I am an eclectic therapist and use a variety of modalities to personalize treatment.  I lean toward Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused, Family Systems and Strength Focused approaches.  I received my Masters of Science in Clinical Counseling from Alabama State University and and am currently in the development plan phase to become a  Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. My experiences as a college counselor and a crisis and substance abuse counselor have prepared me to build the strong therapeutic alliance necessary for change.

Nerissa Legg, MA, LLPC 

Therapist

Many of us struggle in relationships with ourselves and others because we struggle with trusting and accepting that we are truly worthy of the love and acceptance we crave.  Our childhoods may have taught us that we were too different.  We may have chosen to conform, going along to get along to ensure that our emotional and physical needs were met, often to our own emotional detriment.  Because of ongoing challenges with fitting in with friends and family, we may find that we also avoid relationships with others, have a hard time trusting or are too trusting, engage in disparaging self talk to sustain isolation, or find that our lack of boundaries allows others to have access to parts of us that should be better protected.

Nerissa believes that a trusting relationship is the most important component for change. She endeavors to create a safe space for unlearning relational patterns and/or dynamics that no longer serve you while nurturing a relationship where you are completely accepted, respected and valued - a relationship where you can discover the true you, the one that’s buried under the layers of other’s expectations.

Nerissa specializes in treating: depression, anxiety, low self esteem, trauma (sexual and physical) racial identity issues, body image issues and marital/familial conflict. She is trauma informed and trained in EMDR - a technique that is highly effective at reducing and eliminating trauma symptoms. She is an eclectic, person-centered therapist with a leaning toward Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

A graduate of Wayne State University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling, Nerissa is also well versed in treating addictions and is working toward completion of her Certificate of Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counseling. Her years of experience in a multitude of settings, including psychiatric hospitals, private practice and her own mental health focused non-profit, have provided her with the skills necessary to cultivate meaningful relationships that successfully promote the change her clients seek.
