"The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."


This quote from the Book of John is the heartbeat behind Radiant Life, and readily expresses the mission behind it: Providing life-transformative and holistic therapy to help people overcome darkness and take hold of truly radiant life. 

Radiant Life is a psychological counseling practice that offers therapy services to anyone in need. We desire to bring light and hope to any issues you are facing with the utmost compassion and clinical excellence.

We do this according to our strong convictions that nothing is impossible with God, and that (if you trust Him) Jesus can bring you healing and fullness of life. Indeed, everyone deserves true hope that is grounded in something bigger than themselves.


With roots in Biblical faith, we employ the techniques and modalities of evidence-based treatments to provide authentic holistic care, and offer high-quality services to the broader community of Metro Detroit. Even if you don't personally align with these truths, you are always welcome at Radiant Life, as we will tailor our services to best suit you!

Heather Marscheider, MA, LLPC, TLLP

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 on 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.
