Meet the Team

The Center for Establishing Recovery aims to provide socially conscious, science-backed, trauma-informed, and relationship-based therapeutic services to residents of Southeast Michigan.    

We hope to make therapy different than what you might be used to.  We want to connect with you, get to know you, and be a part of your journey.  

We know that changing your life is possible, from both personal and professional experience.  We have the expertise to help and will give you a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental space.
