***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS UNTIL FEB 2020 .***
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 find the root of their pain, and bring healing into their midst. I provide individual, group and family therapy to both adolescents and adults. I specialize in trauma & abuse, LGBTQIA concerns, especially gender affirming therapy and non-monogamous, relationships. 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 have an eclectic approach to therapy pulling in foundations from: 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, and a spiritual model which incorporates a person(s) faith, spirituality and/or higher power(s) into their healing process. I also use muscle testing with energy work.
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.
I accept BCBSM insurance and offer a sliding scale ($60-120) for private pay clients for psychotherapy.
