Approach:  My approach to therapy is goal oriented and focuses on the entire individual and support system. I believe in a client centered approach which considers each individuals personality and background. I also focus my treatment with a “rational” approach which examines undesirable and destructive thought patterns. I am also a Certified Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist and see clients who seek to make changes using hypnosis (such as weight loss, smoking cessation, removing insomnia, sports performance improvement among many other things). 

Personal Statement:
I began working to help others at a young age of 17. I spent 7 summers during my education working as a counselor for adolescents at a summer camp. I pursued my desire to help people by completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and my Master’s Degree in Counseling. I believe everyone has difficulties and struggles in life and we can all benefit for taking the time to improve ourselves which in turn provides the opportunity for a positive, well-adjusted and happy life.

Degree & License: Master's Degree in Counseling, Licensed Professional Counselor

Specialties: Art Therapy, Depression, Anxiety, Grief & Loss, Adjustment Disorders

Populations Served: Adults

Approach: 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 vocational choices and to resolve problems in an individualized creative manner tailored for you. I view the counseling relationship as a collaborative effort, between counselor and client. I use an integrative approach using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy for helping 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 empower you to achieve your interpersonal goals through a collaborative effort.

Personal Statement: 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 establishing a positive working 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.

Hailie Clawson, MA, LLC

Limited Licensed Professional Counselor 

Graduate School: Wayne State University

Degree & License: Master's Degree in Counseling, Professional Counselor 

Specialties: 
Art Therapy; grief and loss; depression; anxiety; mindfulness; trauma; adjustment disorders; behavioral children and adolescents

Populations Served: Children, adolescents, and adults


Approach: 
I like to take an eclectic approach to therapy, incorporating multiple techniques and strategies. I believe utilizing a client-centered approach gives clients the opportunity to decide what to explore and how, while taking into consideration their background, personality, and environments. My main focus of treatment includes identifying and restructuring negative thoughts, feelings, and/or actions to formulate a healthier, positive mindset. Through doing this, I use mindfulness techniques, art therapy experientials, deep breathing techniques, and therapy worksheets to bring the client's awareness of these thoughts, feelings, or actions into the present moment.


Personal Statement: 
I was a member of student council in high school, which really opened my eyes to what giving back to the community means. I volunteered at soup kitchens, nursing homes, and animal shelters. Becoming interested in understanding individuals on a deeper level, I pursued a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, minoring in Applied Arts. Working with K-12 students who have emotional impairments and seeing some of my own family members struggle with mental health has inspired me to further my education, studying Clinical Mental Health with a concentration in Art Therapy.
