Cassandra Patterson, LPC, CAADC, NCC

About Me

I am a Board Certified Counselor who specializes in helping adults cope with trauma-related issues and substance abuse issues. I counsel my clients in a way that utilizes both their heads and their bodies to create connection from past trauma to their present-day hurdles. There are a wide range of events, big and small, that stick with us and make us feel “stuck.” I believe one of the bravest things you can do is to face your unhealed trauma and become "unstuck." ​ If you have any questions about my approach to treatment, or would like to schedule a consultation, I’m ready when you are.

Education & Experience

I completed my undergraduate studies at Saginaw Valley State University, then went on to complete a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Western Michigan University. I also completed a Specialty Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse (SPADA) at Western Michigan University.
