My name is Damika Houston, and I'm a licensed professional counselor. I earned my Master of Science in Counseling with a concentration in Mental Health from the University of Phoenix in March of 2016. I also earned my Bachelors’ in Criminal Justice from Grand Valley State University August 2011.
I have several years of experience working with adolescents and teens in both individual, group, and family roles. I am trained in Trauma Focused-CBT, as well as have experience working with Client-Centered therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused counseling.
My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as supportive, caring, empathetic, and compassionate. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help. I am a National Board Certified Counselor who enjoys what she does for her community.
