Emerson Delacroix, MACP, RYT-200, LLP

My name is Emerson Delacroix (pronouns: they/them/theirs) and I am licensed by the state of Michigan in Psychology and registered with Yoga Alliance as a yoga teacher. 

 

My passion is to help individuals in the LGBTQIA, ENM, Kink communities to find the root of their pain using a multimodal approach. I provide individual, group and family therapy to adults. I specialize in LGBTQIA concerns, especially gender affirming therapy, non-monogamous relationships, kink . I have extensive experience in working with individuals who were raised in religious cults. I also have treated clients with depression, anxiety, infertility, adoption related issues, substance abuse and addiction recovery, grief/loss, relationship concerns, including polyamorous and non-traditional relationships. I also enjoy using my yoga teacher training and personal yoga practice experience into my work.

 

I pull from multiple therapeutic models from: 

  • The 8 Limbs/Pillars of Yoga 
  • Existential therapy which focuses on having purpose and meaning in your life with a present and future focus
  • Humanistic model of therapy focuses on the whole person and their potential, what motivates them and their needs with a look at the here-and-now and how that relates to their past
  • Spiritual model which incorporates a person(s) faith, spirituality and/or higher power(s) into their healing process. 
  • Muscle testing with energy work
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Family Systems Theory

 

I'm Co-President of hOur Exchange Ypsilanti, a local time bank community of people exchanging services and goods for hours instead of cash. I've been an active member since 2013 and am passionate about alternative economies.

 

I have practiced yoga for over 25 years. In 2018, I studied to become a yoga teacher from Stephanie Lynn. After an injury in 2018, I have resumed my daily practice since 7 July 2018.

 

Private yoga sessions are $60/hour.
