I have worked in the Mental Health field since 2008, obtaining experience in Case Management, Home Based Therapy, Individual, Couples, Family and Group Therapy, Psychiatric Hospital Intake, and Supervision/Management. My specialties include children/adolescents aged 6-17 and their family support system, in which I work to provide child and family therapy to strengthen the parental role, while developing positive relationships.

Available treatment options include Individual, Family, and Couples Therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I work with my patients to establish their goals for therapy, and assist them to reach those identified goals in their own time. The most important person in the therapy session is YOU, and therefore I will coordinate and collaborate with you to develop the best treatment approach for you. Call me today, and let’s get started to redefining a healthy, happy YOU!!! For LLPC's, I have acquired the necessary training to provide licensure supervision, in addition to holding the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with a Master's Degree in Social Work from The University of Michigan. I have worked in the field for the past 8 years, gaining experience in Home-Based and Outpatient settings in Macomb and Wayne County. My specialty is working with kids ages 5-17, and their families. I have experience in helping issues related to severe mental health, academic concerns, mood disorders, personality dysfunction, and behavioral concerns. My style includes a strength-based approach, while using a technique that fits the individual's needs. I am trained in trauma-focused treatments, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, suicide risk assessment, and can assess and diagnose. My hope is that all my patients feel safe, heard, respected, validated and valued.

I have gained experience in the mental health field working with the Department of Human Services (DHS), psychiatric hospital, and now private practice. I have experience working with a range of patients from adolescent through adult, including individual, family, and marriage/couples therapy. Areas of treatment include anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship distress. It is my goal to help you find and meet your goals.

While I cannot guarantee any specific outcome, I am willing to help you in any way I can. Your journey will not always be easy, comfortable, or turn out as you expect or want, however moving past or even facing your issues may improve your overall quality of life in ways you previously have only hoped.
Robin Keller, LLP ATR-Clinical Therapist
I offer individual, family, and/or group therapy. I have a patient centered, humanistic approach to treating patients. I am qualified to treat a wide variety of mental health conditions, such as but not limited to depression, anxiety, and adjustment disorder. I earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the Michigan School of Professional Psychology in 2015. I served my 500 hour clinical practicum at Aids Partnership of Michigan. Wayne State awarded me a Masters of Education in Art Education and Art Therapy in 2013. I completed my 600 internship hours at a senior living apartment complex and in a residential treatment center for addiction. The treatment center hired me as an intern and as a new art therapy professional. While my passion is to assist all types of patients in reducing their suffering, I have a specific desire to support those challenged by addiction. Previous employment in residential addiction treatment provides me a deep understanding of the recovery process. This knowledge and a nonjudgmental approach allow me to help patients continue their recovery work. My experience with the HIV+ population allows me to understand that recovery is the goal of all therapeutic work.
Kimberly Williams, MA LLPC NCC-Clinical Therapist
I am a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor, as well as National Certified Counselor. I am under the supervision of the owner of TCCT, Erika A. Collins, MS LPC NCC ACS. I identify with a person-centered therapeutic style and place great emphasis on building the therapeutic relationship with my clients. I believe that this therapeutic relationship is important, as it is the foundation for offering clients the environment to promote change, which leads to eventual problem resolution. I have a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Oakland University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Wayne State University. During my time at Oakland University I completed specialized coursework in Grief & Loss and learned the tools to help those affected navigate through the mourning process in a healthy and successful manner.
I have experience assisting couples, individuals, adolescents, and children work through various situations including grief & loss, anxiety, depression, self-esteem building, stress and anger management. I have an affinity for working with the adolescent and young adult populations and assisting them work through the transitioning phases of life. I prefer using the Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic approach; as I believe the way one thinks affects the way one behaves and a change in thinking will result in a change in behavior. Both my education and experience have allowed me to understand and enjoy the process of helping others.
I am married to my best friend and together we have a son and two daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy writing, watching movies, doing nail art and spending time with my family.
