Hello and welcome to Radiant Life Counseling Center. It is my hope that you will find a full, renewed, and radiant life here!
I have therapy experience with complex trauma, anxiety, relationships, grief, and marriage counseling, with specialties in Christian counseling and teletherapy. I use evidence-based treatments (i.e. CBT, ACT, DBT) to address your goals and help you overcome your mental health battles. My desire is to bring light and hope to any issues you are facing with the utmost compassion and clinical excellence to the broader community of Metro Detroit.
Because I do not take insurance, I recognize the cost of care can be limiting. Thus, I’m dedicated to maximizing the potential of each counseling session (unhindered by insurance limitations) to provide you with the best care possible and make your investment worth it.
I believe that no matter the darkness you have experienced, new life IS possible. Indeed, without an understanding of darkness, we would not appreciate the beauty of light, nor the hunger for it. Having a radiant life does not mean a life without pain - but rather a life of transformation, empowerment, and joy despite that pain.
"The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness cannot overcome it."
Do you feel like anxiety or depression are controlling your life? Do you feel disconnected from others, yourself or God? You are not alone and this isn't over. Many struggle to see the benefit of therapy when they feel lost or frustrated. Yet, there is hope.
In individual counseling we can work specifically with the areas you find most troubling. Find healing and joy through individual counseling sessions. Although I work with a variety of issues, I am more specifically trained in the areas of trauma, anxiety, boundaries & relationships, depression, and Christian counseling.
$85 per session
Sessions of 50-60 minutes (average length) start at $85, with an initial assessment fee of $35.
Do you find yourself constantly dealing with the same old issues and feeling at odds with your spouse? Do you struggle to communicate effectively and even feel emotionally disconnected? Don't give up, your situation is not hopeless.
Relationships -though beautiful and life-giving- always require hard work to reap their rewards. In couples counseling, we can work to identify the relational blocks between you and foster a greater sense of commitment and connection to each other. I can also provide Christian-integrated, evidenced-based treatment, as my specialty, to ensure you get the most out of your investment.
$100 per session
Sessions of 50-60 minutes (average length) start at $100, with an initial assessment fee of $80 which includes a couples checkup.
Ever wondered if group counseling is right for you? If you have already started to work through your trauma and would like to further understand its impact in your life as well as to build supportive relationships, our approach to group therapy might be the right fit for you! Now opening a new Trauma Recovery Group for women, designed to decrease Trauma's impact on your life and help you flourish! This group is for those who have experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse/trauma (particularly in childhood), and have engaged in some therapy work before with no self-harm or substance use in the past 6 months. If you would like to further understand the impact of trauma on your life and build supportive relationships, this is the group for you! Inquire below to learn more about openings.
$50 per group session
Sessions of 90 minutes (average length) start at $50 per participant, with an initial assessment fee of $50.
Teletherapy / Online Counseling
Are you a Michigan resident looking for a solution to your therapeutic needs that go beyond face-to-face sessions? Do you have access to a confidential space of your own? Online counseling can be a convenient avenue of therapeutic support and has shown to be a promising alternative to the in-person tradition of psychotherapy. I offer confidential sessions using a secure and simple platform through a patient portal.
I offer no additional fee for teletherapy. Pricing is dependent upon the type of service offered and is identical to previously listed prices.
Heather Marscheider, MA, LLP, LLPC
Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, Limited Licensed Psychologist, Limited Licensed Professional Counselor
Hi there! I’m Heather, a limited licensed psychologist, counselor, and founder of Radiant Life Counseling Center serving the metro Detroit and Downriver areas. While not a native “Michigander”, I have come to love the beauty and culture of Michigan in many ways (cider and donuts, anyone?). Originally from Kansas, I received my Bachelor's degree in Missouri and Master's degree in Arizona. Most recently I completed my second Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Moody Theological Seminary, with a specialty in trauma-informed care and Christian integration. (Hover over the "Services" tab to find out more about treatment options and specialties). I'm a genuine people person with a disposition (indeed, a calling) to help others, with a strong commitment to bringing the best care possible.
My mission when opening Radiant Life Counseling originated from a desire to bring life-transforming, holistic care to a community that is typically underserved and to places that more readily reflect darkness than they do light. I believe that under these circumstances is where new life is most possible and where people are most ready to rise up and seek change. I want to advocate for those who want to embark in a journey to transforming and bring joy and peace into their lives. I want all my clients to know that change is possible for them, no matter what they've done or experienced, or from where they originate. This is especially true of my story: Despite the obstacles, God has always helped me overcome.
