Life brings challenges, often when we least expect them

Working through these challenges in a healthy way is important to our mental and behavioral health. Some of the most common reasons individuals experience anxiety, depression, anger, or recurrent problems in their relationships is because they haven’t yet worked through a bigger issue that may be difficult to navigate without help. Our counselors at Red Cedar Counseling work with individuals, couples, and families to help them to develop new skills for working through difficulties and new solutions to long-term problems.


We believe that everyone should have access to mental health care.

We don’t try to tell our patients how to live their lives, nor do we judge for any reason. Our goal is to work with each individual to help them find a solution that works best for them and their lifestyle. Our counselors are compassionate and understanding, which is what helps to make Red Cedar Counseling the counseling center that Lansing and surrounding areas can trust.

The child therapists at Red Cedar Counseling offer trusted and caring child counseling sessions to support your children through difficult situations. Children and teenagers often don’t want to communicate with their parents about the difficulties that are going on in their lives, but their emotions may change and reflect that something isn’t right. Our child counselors are compassionate and develop trust with each child so that they feel comfortable speaking openly and honestly about how they feel. Then we work to help them process their feelings and develop practical strategies for how to walk through their difficulties in a healthy way. We use a variety of different techniques depending on the age of the child, so that they are engaged and comfortable with our child therapists. We communicate closely with the parents or guardians as well so that they are informed about the development of their child. We understand that adolescent and child counseling should be handled with care and compassion, which is the main focus of our child therapists here at Red Cedar Counseling.

Anger is a strong response that stems from disappointment, frustration, pain, and/or fear. Oftentimes when someone has difficulties controlling their anger response, it’s because there are underlying emotional stressors or situational stressors that haven’t been resolved. Anger management counseling helps people to learn to identify the sources of their anger and how to resolve the underlying reasons. Learning to express anger in a healthier way is essential to anger management counseling, as individuals can often damage personal and professional relationships because of an angry outburst. Anger management therapy at Red Cedars Relationship Counseling helps people to understand the early signs of their anger, and learn to respond to it and control it so that anger does not control them.
