Charisse Staine, Resident in Counseling, NCC

Philosophy of Care

Charisse Staine is a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor (LLPC) who specializes in treating low self-worth and confidence, depression, anxiety, and insomnia in adults of all ages. Many of Charisse’s clients could benefit from mindfulness, goal setting, and a number of modalities that support optimal cognitive functioning. She also works with college students who are having adjustment issues in college, may have imposter syndrome, or are finding it difficult to connect. Charisse’s clients over 60 years old feel isolated, depressed, or lack the support that they need. They want to become active again, but are not motivated like they once were. Charisse also works with Christian clients who desire to integrate their Christian faith as a part of the therapeutic treatment. She has 30 years of experience in the mental health field.

Charisse completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology at the University of the Rockies and her Master of Education (M.Ed) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lamar University. She is a Certified Trauma Professional (CPT). Charisse specializes in an eclectic approach to therapy and leans heavily on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). She believes that cognitions can be restructured to produce outcomes that can impact a person mentally, emotionally, and somatically. Each client is unique and has specific needs that can be addressed by a customized intervention that addresses areas for optimization. Charisse uses a holistic approach addressing non-traditional contributors to presenting issues by working with the client to improve psychosomatic issues through diet changes, gentle exercise, and relaxation techniques. Her superpower is motivation. Charisse enjoys helping move people beyond a place of being stuck and gain a sense of being in a world that can seem intimidating.

Counseling creates an empowering relationship between you and your therapist. Counselors collaborate with you to find solutions to current issues in your everyday life, helping you set goals and develop a strategy to reach them. In the process, you learn methods of improving your confidence, emotions, behaviors, and coping skills. Counseling is designed to help you succeed on life’s journey. You may want help addressing major life events or changes, such as the death of a loved one, a divorce, a new marriage, or parenting issues. Counselors can help you find new ways of dealing with stress, depression, or anxiety in a productive, confidential, and supportive way. Counseling can help you move beyond being stuck and become motivated for optimal functioning. Counselors help you explore your own history to understand and change personal behaviors that are unproductive, discover and enhance your unique strengths, and learn coping strategies for self-improvement.

As your counselor, Charisse is committed to treating you like a person, not a diagnosis. She will work with you to design the best plan of moving beyond where you are to where you desire to be. Equipped with a therapeutic background that is tempered with faith, Charisse hopes to help you gain hope for change. Her holistic approach incorporates fortifying your mental health, personal goals, and other components that impact it like sleep, nutrition, and meditation using evidence-based treatments and solutions.

Robin Luckadoo Chadderdon, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Robin Luckadoo Chadderdon is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. Her focus area is connected to traumas, both past and present — she helps first responders including firefighters, police, corrections staff, EMT, child welfare workers, medical staff, military, and teachers; older youth; LGBTQ+ families and individuals; individuals dealing with grief in a variety of ways such as death, divorce, work-related trauma, miscarriage, abortion, rape, incarceration, adoption. Walking beside individuals as they understand, plan change, and grow to their best selves is something Robin is passionate about doing. She also works with couples and families to help them better understand how these same issues impact their marriages, families, and overall well-being.

Through a variety of therapeutic techniques which may include talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), art, music, play, and narrative therapy, Robin offers a safe place to do the internal work needed to overcome the anxiety, stress, or daily struggles that individuals may face. She has spent over 25 years working with individuals in the high-stress first responder careers. These individuals often experience direct trauma, vicarious/secondary trauma through the course of everyday work. Building a trusting relationship and a safe place where these experiences can be processed, individuals are able to move forward. Working through anxiety, depression, grief, and/or anger around these experiences may lead to discoveries within the self, improved relationships within the marriage or family, and/or resiliency. This is the ultimate goal of teaming in this way through the therapeutic connection.

"Even the strongest have their limitations. Sometimes you just need a safe person to talk through the issues that hold our minds or our hearts," says Robin. "Other times things happen that trigger responses from our past or cause us harm. These events or experiences impact our parenting, our marriage, families, self-image, or even our work performance. We want to be our best selves. We know can be if we could just find the right place to process everything on our minds. Sometimes addressing these things in a safe place with a safe person can be the difference in overcoming these barriers to happiness. Maybe it is time to see if that person is an understanding therapist. I would like to travel the journey with you."

Lynn MacDonald, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Welcome! My name is Lynn MacDonald. I am a graduate of Oakland University where I obtained my Master of Arts in Community Agency Counseling.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Michigan. I have over fifteen years in the Human Services field. I have been practicing as a Professional Counselor since 2013; providing individual, family and group therapy interventions with children ages three to seventeen and adults of all ages. My clientele has consisted of child victims of neglect, physical and sexual abuse, as well as their family members, children with severe emotional disturbance and their caregivers, individuals with a trauma history, including members of the military, depression, generalized and severe anxiety, coping with grief and loss, crisis counseling, individuals who self-harm or are suicidal, family conflict, and parenting concerns. I work with children, adolescents, and adults on an individual, conjoint or family basis. I have regularly facilitated child social skills building groups, teen survivor groups and parent support groups with a variety of topics. 

I have worked as an Advocate in schools for Special Education needs, in the court system for victims of abuse, and have fifteen years’ experience providing all types of Case Management services and am able to connect clients to resources within their communities. 

I am experienced in a variety of counseling techniques. I believe it is very important to establish a trusting, ethical, therapeutic relationship with my clients and I utilize empathy and unconditional positive regard.  I consider myself Integrative, which uses a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Therefore, I will draw from techniques that fit the client as an individual. I am compassionate, open minded, and very Person Centered in my approach. I have used therapeutic techniques drawn from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy informed interventions, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents and Parents (SITCAP), Family Systems Theory, Behavioral based interventions, Psycho-education, and other interventions necessary to assist my clients to reach their therapeutic goals and healing. 

I am passionate about my work and am grateful for the trust my clients extend to me. I work very hard with my clients to assist them to achieve their goals. I value your honesty and feedback. When we work together you can expect to be treated fairly, respectfully, honestly, and without judgment.

I am here to serve you and to assist you to bring about the change you want for your life. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to working with you!

Review for Sandra Quigley

★★★★★
*****I have been a patient of Sandra's for nearly 2 years now and I really can't say enough good things about her work with me. She is a true Christian counselor and that was exactly the perspective I needed to guide me down the path God was trying to lead me. She definitely strengthened my faith and made many of life's big problems seem like small speed bumps when looking at the big picture!! I highly recommend Sandra Q. if you are looking for the someone who honestly cares about you and the journey you are on. Remember, there’s ultimately only one way to peace in your life, and that’s to walk daily with the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus!! *****

I wouldn’t recommend it – one of the worst therapists I’ve ever seen

★☆☆☆☆
The doctor (PhD) I saw for therapy decided, on the second session, to pay more attention to doing things on his phone than to listening to me. He thought he was hiding what he was doing behind his portfolio, but he was not. I could see the reflection of what he was doing, and he was looking down more than up. He was pretending to listen but didn't do a very good job of that, because when I stopped talking, he would incorrectly try to restate what I said or, make a comment on what I said which turned out to not be relevant because it was clear he wasn't listening. He did not seem to want to be there. It was a horrible experience. I called the next day to complain to the lady on the phone, and got a sincere "I'm sorry" and that's it. When I got the bill (very expensive, by the way), I have been attempting to call the office to pay it over the phone but I keep getting told that the people that do the billing are currently busy and that I should call back. It should not be that difficult for someone to take a credit card number and apply it to my bill, especially a bill I shouldn't have to pay due to horrible service. I hope the other therapists at Thriveworks are better than the one I selected, and actually have interest in helping their patients.

She helped change my life

★★★★★
Dear Marcy, I can't thank you enough for recommending your therapist Dawn Gaden to me. She has helped change my life. I have always struggled with feeling misunderstood. But recently I fell into a deep depression; beyond something I could resolve myself. Therapy was required for my recovery. Since childhood I have been weary of therapists because I would talk through my problems but I didn't get tools and strategies to handle my problems better. Dawn has changed that. For the first time I leave each appointment not only relieved from having talked my issues through, but more importantly with tools to help me move forward. She has introduced me to methods I had considered silly, but now I could live without. I am proud of the person I am becoming and the journey I have chosen to take. Thank you for all you have done to change my life and my family's future.

I found Sandra Quigley on the web while searching for a Christian counselor. I was having a lot of anxiety about making a career change. She not only helped through the anxieties, she also helped me with concerns in my personal life. Sandra's non-judgmental and compassionate approach, made me feel comfortable and hopeful.

Everything I needed

★★★★★
I found Sandra Quigley in the back of a magazine (Psychology Today). I desperately needed someone to talk to. Newly retired with plenty of time to allow my mind to take over my life, I felt constantly anxious and very out of sorts. Enter Sandra Quigley- compassionate, non-judgmental, kind, and gentle. She is everything that I needed to heal myself. I had never talked to a therapist before, so this was a new venture. It was very important to me that I find someone with whom I could feel comfortable. Right away, I felt comfortable. I did have assignments; I never was prescribed a single drug. She went out of her way to help me specifically with my issues- finding me articles, books, telling stories. I never felt uncomfortable; I felt and still feel that my time with Sandra is valuable. With Sandra’s help, I have unearthed a much calmer, happier, together self that now wakes up each morning looking forward to the day ahead. We all have our baggage- I never once realized that I could unpack that bag and put my crap away. I now get to walk through life so much lighter!!

So helpful!

★★★★★
I really love the helpful and peaceful approach at Thriveworks. I have known Marcy for a long time and her ability to work through tough spots and discuss personalities makes her a lot of fun for me. Time flies when we chat and that is a good thing for a guy like me who is always worried about time. I also love Dawn Gadens video blogs! Wow...so insightful and easy to access. I don't see Dawn in counseling but if she is that good on video I have to believe she is great in person. Give a shot...I bet you will love them.
