My Approach to Helping

My name is Grant Prenzler, I have my MA in clinical counseling with a specialty in art therapy. I'm licensed in the state of Michigan with my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor). I'm also an ATR (Art Therapist Registered) through the Art Therapy Credentials Board. I'm very passionate about counseling and art therapy, I view it as a privilege to be a part of a client's journey towards personal growth and healing. My primary areas of focus are anxiety and depression, but I have experience in many other areas.

The counseling process is aimed to empower you and promote your own wellness. We will confront any concerns you may have and promote any desired positive behavioral changes that best benefit you. The counseling process aims to help you make realistic choices and resolve problems in an individualized creative manner. I view the counseling relationship as a collaborative effort, between counselor and client. I use an integrative approach using cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, Gestalt Therapy, existential, humanistic, and holistic therapy, to help you achieve any goals you may have in counseling. I am also trained as an Art Therapist if you feel you will benefit from this. I strive to help you make your own decisions and to support you during your endeavors to achieve your interpersonal goals through a collaborative effort. I don't believe I am the expert on anyone's life, for I am not you. I view this as a partnership between you and me, where I help you find your own path to positive change.

My primary focus is on issues pertaining to anxiety, and depression. I do have experience with grief & loss, adjustment disorders, life transitions, adjustment disorders, trauma, bipolar disorders, non-religious spiritual work, chronic pain, Oncology counseling & LGBTQ+ issues.

I cannot generalize how everyone will feel working with me. However, I strive to make sessions as comfortable and inviting as I can. I like to incorporate humor in sessions when appropriate and depending on the client's needspreferences. I encourage positivity and mindfulness in my communication. Some feedback I've received from past clients is they feel listened to, supported, and emotionally safe while being challenged to achieve their goals. However, I understand that sometimes a therapist is not a good fit for a client. At the end of the day I want you to get what you need, I hope it's with me, but if not I want you to get connected to someone who is!

I believe the most beneficial element of counseling is a positive working relationship between counselor and client. I was inspired to become a counselor due to someone in my life who established a positive working and therapeutic relationship with me. This individual helped me help myself in a time of need. I wish to be able to help others in the same way.

I approach goals in a collaborative manner with clients. I truly believe that the clients should be in control of where their therapy goes, and what it is they want to focus on, and I encourage them to be the biggest advocates of their treatment.

Our first session will be about us getting to know each other, what brings you to therapy, and beginning to establish a therapeutic goal(s) and focus in a collaborative manner. I like to keep sessions free-flowing with structure when need be. We will spend some time going over confidentiality, and my clinical approach, and answering any questions you have about the counseling process.
