DeWan McPherson

(MA, LPC)

About Me

In my work with adolescents and their family members I offer a non-judgmental, and compassionate approach. I am a fully licensed counselor with a masters from Central Michigan University who has been working with children and adolescents for five years. I tailor my interventions to the needs of my clients. Depending on the presenting problems, I may consult with parents to improve their adolescents behavior, work with couples to improve their communication, perform individual therapy for individuals struggling with emotional or behavioral difficulties or simply to improve emotional wellbeing, and coping skills. I work with families to build effective working relationships with them, as well as strive on being committed to involving the family in the therapeutic process in my work with adolescents.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio and I look forward to working with you.

She is kind, compassionate and goes above and beyond. Her strategies work and she’s helped me to build confidence in the time we have worked together. She’s great at helping me to unlock my own ability to heal. She’s excellent.

She is absolutely amazing. She's very smart, she knows what she's doing. She has a lot of good advice and she is a great listener. I have asperger's and talking about things is difficult for me but I never feel awkward or unsafe with her like I do normally with others. Definitely recommend her.

DeWan McPherson seems to be very knowledgeable in her expertise with teenage counseling. She almost seems like a psychic at times. I've seen a dramatic change in my daughter's behavior and moods swings over the past couple months and I'm truly thankful.

Her technique in allowing me to process the problems and give myself feedback as helped tremendously. It allows me to verbally speak what is on my mind but also holds me accountable for my own thoughts.
