MASTERPEACE Counseling Staff


​​It is our pleasure to introduce the staff at MASTERPEACE Center for Counseling and Development. Each staff member has been trained in the mental health field and is registered or licensed by the State of Michigan to provide confidential and the most qualified testing and counseling services. Each staff member adheres to the standards of practice and code of ethics set by the Council on Accreditation, this organization, and their own profession.


Each staff member utilizes their abilities to combine the compassion and healing power of faith with the insight of traditional counseling. The staff is respectful of the beliefs (or non-beliefs), practices, and faith of each person receiving testing or counseling. Clients do not need to have faith or attend church to receive services at MASTERPEACE. The staff respects each person’s right to determine where they want to start the therapeutic process in order to reach their personal goal of growth and healing. ​
