Need a map to find a therapist?

Finding a good fit for counseling is often tough. We hope to make it a little bit easier for you. Although we think Mental Wellness Counseling is a great place, you might be looking for something different. Here are some other counselors in the Traverse City area that we are pretty darn fond of.

All of these therapists are people that we know. Most are members of the Northern Michigan Psychology Network or Licensed Professional Counselors of Northern Michigan. We’ve talked and feel comfortable with one another. Finding a good therapist can be quite a journey, hopefully this list helps.
