Mental Health Services

Our Approach

Macomb Family Services understands that every person has different needs and faces their own challenges. Both experience and personality shape each of us in ways that are entirely unique. Because of this, our approach is to treat clients on a very personalized basis. We do our best to match you with one of our licensed professionals. Our goal is simply to find what works the best for you, allowing you to guide your treatment.

We also believe that in order to improve lives we must assess and treat the whole person. This means, we look at more than just what’s being immediately presented. We consider other health factors as well as the life situations you may find yourself in. To successfully take this whole person approach, MFS works with patients, families, schools, courts, and primary care doctors to ensure patients receive affordable mental health services that go beyond a one-dimensional approach.

Counseling Services

We provide individual counseling, family therapy, and substance abuse treatment. While individual counseling focuses on assessing and treating an individual, family therapy assesses and treats the family as an emotional unit. In family therapy, we focus on discovering what each person contributes to the dynamic of that unit.

We offer mental health and substance abuse services to all ages, including children as young as 3.

What to expect when you visit

Assessment

As part of our first visit, every new client receives an evaluation. During the evaluation, we’ll go over some paperwork, ask you questions about your background, and find out what challenges you’re facing. We review this information in order to begin creating the best treatment plan for you.

Based on the information you provide, we can make necessary referrals to your doctor and other community resources. We’ll work with them to make ensure integration of care.

Treatment

Our team includes qualified psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and professional counselors. Our therapists are trained in a variety of techniques and specialized treatment approaches. All of our techniques are evidence-based, which means they are supported by the most current and reliable scientific evidence.

Most often, we use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. CBT is a talk-based therapy that helps single out negative thought patterns and behaviors and teaches the skills to change them. Motivational interviewing is an approach that helps patients move toward positive growth and away from indecision. We also offer other techniques like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

We believe that you know yourself the best, so we encourage you to guide and customize your treatment as needed. We’re here to help you along the way.
