We can help you take the next step in living life.


What type of insurance do you accept?

Living Life Counseling accepts several types of insurance including Blue Cross/Blue Shield. We also provide a per session sliding scale based on financial need. Please contact our office at 810-923-5760 to review your specific coverage and counseling needs.

What should I do prior to my first session?

Please go to the New Client Intake Form page to print and complete the necessary client intake forms prior to your first appointment.  Your counselor will let you know what forms are required to be completed based on your counseling needs.

Will you benefit from counseling?

Most people find counseling to be helpful. Having an objective third party can provide considerable benefit. Therapy offers an opportunity for a new perspective that can help you move forward in growth and healing.

It is our goal to ensure that you are provided a safe place to discuss issues with someone that has the experience to help you address the challenges you face. Also, counseling can add clarity for decision-making and provides a beneficial environment to determine the best course of action for issues you are addressing.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to analyze why you are reacting to certain situations the way you are. If you are dealing with more serious issues that require medication, a psychiatrist will be able to also work with you. Whatever the issues are that you are struggling with, counseling can be focused to address your needs and together we can determine the key counseling goals to ensure you get the best help possible.

What is your privacy and confidentiality policy?

The utmost care in privacy and confidentiality is assured to you and your family members during and after services are rendered. Since Living Life Counseling remains a private practice, your personal information regarding your care is not released to insurance companies unless you choose to use your insurance. No acknowledgements of a relationship between you and a counselor can be made unless you specifically sign a release of information form. If you do choose to use your insurance we will communicate with your insurance company as required.

How long does counseling take?

It is difficult to say specifically how long counseling will take since each individual situation is unique. However, we can determine some time frames based on the initial assessment that we will conduct at our first meeting. Once that assessment is complete, we should be able to give you an estimate about time frames and frequency of meetings. Keep in mind however, as problems develop those estimates may need to be modified and we will freely discuss this.

Typically, the average course of therapy lasts 6 to 12 sessions, though therapy may be shorter or longer in duration. The length of treatment depends on the complexity of the issues being addressed, your level of personal motivation, and the frequency of meetings. All of these factors can affect the rate at which we can deal with the problems. We of course will discuss any questions about the length of treatment as they may arise.

What is your Christian counseling perspective?

Living Life Counseling was founded on a deep conviction that seeking God’s direction, wisdom and power during the course of therapy is an essential component of the healing process. We feel strongly that the first step in dealing with painful regrets and guilt is to understand God’s forgiveness and the boundless love of Jesus Christ. As committed Christians, we welcome praying with you during the session if you would like to do so. In addition, if you would like to bring your Bible to use for reference we are very happy to incorporate this into the counseling process. To learn more click on our Christian Counseling link.

For those of another faith, keep in mind that fifty percent of our case load is made up of clients that do not have any strong religious beliefs. In no way will we impose our faith on a client. If a client is interested in learning more about the Christian aspects of our therapy we will be glad to share the details. No matter where you are in your life journey, we believe that counseling will have a great impact on helping you to live the life you are seeking.
