Jessica L. Bronner, LMHC
As a licensed mental health counselor I make it my mission to support and empower my clients in reaching goals that are important to them. We all have the ability to heal ourselves and at especially challenging times need guidance and assistance in doing so. I take a compassionate yet direct approach to help people identify practical solutions to life’s challenges. My therapeutic repertoire allows me to draw from various modalities to best meet the needs of each individual client.
Throughout my training I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings, residential treatment programs, in-home therapy, and private practice. This has provided me with invaluable training in areas such as bereavement, oncology, eating disorders, dual diagnosis, infant/child mental health, relationship challenges, sexuality, and self-esteem. In addition to traditional therapy I prefer to take a holistic approach. Your emotional, physical, and mental health are all related.
Rachel Rotem, LCSW
Rachel Rotem, LCSW, has been practicing clinical therapy in Michigan and Florida since 2003. Rachel was trained at the University of Michigan – School of Social Work, and since worked with hundreds of people from children to end of life. With thousands of documented sessions, Rachel sees a real void in therapy when it comes to men and their needs. She feels that often times – men are neglected in therapy when therapists take a feminine approach towards treating them.
Rachel’s specialty includes problem solving techniques, and solution focused therapy – all used in helping men get to the root of the problem that is ailing them.
Working with hospice patients for many years has taught Rachel a good perspective on helping people focus on the important events and making their lives meaningful. She has a very positive perspective, that always helps reframe her patients’ state of mind.
