Megan Marie Dunne, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

We all need a little help sometimes. Therapy is a great tool to have to overcome life’s tough times. Are you new to therapy? Or someone who has seen a therapist before? Regardless of your previous experiences with therapy, I offer everyone a safe, private and professional experience. Together we will address your concerns and then plan and execute change. As far back as I can remember, I have always been concerned with other people’s happiness. As a child I knew that one day I would have a career in a “helping profession”. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit MI in 2006 with a master’s degree in social work, a minor in psychology and a solid foundation on treating people using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I have continued to grow in my profession over the years. I have 15 years of experience working not only as a therapist but also as a medical social worker. Implementing change, managing crisis’s and providing life changing resources in clinics, emergency rooms, and in medical wards across metro Detroit. My approach to therapy is a holistic one. I provide support and feedback to assist clients as they address their personal life challenges. I believe in empowering clients to build on their strengths to obtain personal growth. As a holistic mental health clinician, I am passionate about assisting others through life issues and stress so they can grow and heal in mind, body and spirit.
If you need guidance and support, I offer a safe healing space to work through difficulties. I strive to provide a comfortable, respectful and accepting therapeutic environment. Due to my vast professional history I am comfortable working with all populations and hope to work with you.
“ “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but building the new” “ (Socrates. Way of the peaceful warrior: A book that changes lives. By Dan Millman)

Pamela Rybka, LPC

Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is to involve clients in their treatment plan. I will work with you but I will not work harder than you on your wellness. Your wellness encompasses all of you:  body, mind, spirit. One must be open to new ideas. We will explore what has worked for you in the past and what has not.  I use various treatment modalities including, but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychoeducational Therapy, Mindfulness and Meditation.

 Together we will explore, with your input, how you as a client can become your optimum best self on this journey of life. There is no right or wrong. Therapy is a process of growth. Therapy is about relationships. Your relationship with your therapist and your relationship with yourself and those around you. 

Confidentiality is of utmost importance within the therapeutic relationship. However, it is imperative that you know if I feel you are at harm to yourself or others that I am a mandated reporter. I am also mandated to report any suspicion of abuse, neglect or exploitation.
