Nneka J. Owens, MA, LPC, NCC
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I work primarily with Teens and Adults.
I'm a graduate of Spring Arbor University, where my studies centered around Relational Issues and Mood Disorders, which includes Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Stress and Anger Management. I'm currently, completing certification in Imago Therapy, in an effort to assist couples in overcoming their challenges, while arriving at a place of understanding so healing can take place.
In 2009 I founded Truth Party for Relationships, a forum that allows both single and married men and women the opportunity to freely express their thoughts about dating and companionship. I recognize that most of the conflict we experience in our personal interactions is a result of lacking the proper "tools" to build healthier bonds.
My therapeutic approach incorporates an interactive, solution-focused, cognitive behavior and family systems approach, which includes use of a Genogram. My goal is to provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address life's challenges. I integrate complementary methods and techniques to provide a personalized approach to counseling each client.

Kathryn L. Ryan, MA, LLPC
"Being challenged in life is inevitable; being defeated is optional."
This quote is not only a pillar in my book, "Living an Inspired Life," it is a driving force in what I do and who I am. It is what inspires me to work with you to overcome the challenges you are facing right now.
Before becoming a counselor in 2012, I taught high school and middle school for 15 years, spending my last three working as a specialized counselor to our "at risk" youth population.
From teens to adults, I have helped people to deal with and/or overcome such things as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, self mutilation, suicidal ideations, sexual identity issues, family interventions, mental, physical, and emotional abuses, and drug dependencies.
Currently, I work as both a counselor and a CrossFit trainer, in addition to giving annual sermons in Christian Spiritualist churches around Michigan.
I believe and live in the purpose of bettering the mind, body, and spirit. If you have a desire to make a change and are willing to work on becoming and achieving more than what you are in this moment, I am here to help.
Jasmine Stephens MA, LLPC
I am a graduate from South University with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I currently specialize in counseling for individuals, children, couples and families in Dearborn, MI. The approach to counseling that appeals to me most as a person and a counselor stems from a cognitive-behavioral philosophy. This philosophy stresses that negative patterns of thought about self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns or treat mood disorders.
My role as a counselor is simply as a facilitator who encourages joint collaboration with clients to seek resolutions to any problem at hand so that clients may achieve a better quality of life. I do not limit the therapeutic modalities used to a specific theoretical orientation and tend to employ the methods best suited to help the client in the best manner possible.

I have experience helping children, teens and adults with depression, anxiety, ADHD, life transitions, stress management and trauma-related disorders. Currently, I work mainly with teens and adults.
As a counselor I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based and solution-focused therapies. It’s important for me to meet my clients where they’re at and to provide a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental environment to foster emotional expression and growth.
In addition to talk-therapy, I utilize art therapy assessments and techniques to provide my clients with alternative ways to engage the mind, body and spirit.

Genuineness, authenticity, compassion, and uniqueness are who I am as a counselor.

Life comes with many challenges, but they don't have to be challenging alone. I am committed to providing a space of tranquility and peace to those I serve. I practice from an eclectic approach of evidence-based practices to fit the client's need, whether it be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Motivational Interviewing, to the integration of Christian concepts, if necessary. My approach to therapy is built upon the principle of respect and compassion through a caring therapeutic relationship. Your mental health and overall wellness are essential, so believing that you have the potential to step over the threshold into your new beginnings is what I strive for in each session.
