LCSW, LPC, CFC, CTP, CAHIS
Hello. I'm Kassie.
If you are looking for a therapist that sits quietly and occasionally asks “How do you feel”?, then I’m not the therapist for you. I am interactive, solution-focused, honest, caring, and consider myself a bit eclectic. I believe all individuals are unique and my approach should be too.
I am licensed by the state of Michigan as a licensed professional counselor and a licensed clinical social worker. I have certification from the National Association of Forensic Counselors, the National Trauma and Loss in Children, the Oakland University in Animal-Human
Intervention, and am a trained Parent Project® facilitator. I have also
been trained by Josh Smith of the DBT Institute in Dialectical Behavioral
For over two decades I have worked with families and youth, seniors,
and those with physical disabilities. I am certified in trauma therapy
and have utilized a variety of therapeutic techniques through the years
to achieve success with my clients. I have also trained in crisis
intervention, youth mental health, and am certified in trauma therapy.
I also offer two highly effective Parent Project® classes. The Parent Project was created specifically for parents with difficult or out-of-control adolescents. Parents learn and practice specific prevention and intervention strategies for destructive behaviors.
• Learn to never argue with your child;
• Improve school attendance and performance;
• Prevent alcohol and drug use; and
• Stop gang involvement.
Parent Project Jr. (also known as Loving Solutions) is a 10- week program designed specifically for parents raising strong-willed children, ages 5-10 years. Parent Project Senior is a 12-week program offered one day per week.
About Parent Project: Parent Project is the nation’s largest and most effective program for parents dealing with children’s and teens’ destructive behavior.
