Therapists at Red Cedar
Everyone experiences struggles in life that can impact their ability to enjoy life and truly engage in each day. We all process difficulties differently, and sometimes it helps to speak with a professional counselor to discuss healthy ways to handle emotions and difficult situations. Our clinicians have helped people with anxiety, depression, and other challenges.
Red Cedar Counseling offers individual counseling services to help individuals process uncomfortable emotions, create healthy strategies for coping with a variety of situations, and develop a more healthy outlook for the future. As compassionate listeners and licensed professionals, our counselors can help individuals develop a healthy skill set for handling life’s roadblocks.
Are you experiencing any of these difficulties?
- Sadness, depression, or a difficulty to feel joy during happy events
- Problems with anxiety that cause stress, fear, health problems, or depression
- Lack of motivation to complete even simple daily tasks
- Difficulty controlling anger or becoming upset quickly
- Feeling overwhelmed and unable to plan for the future
Contact Red Cedar Counseling today to schedule an individual counseling appointment with a Lansing therapist or online. Our counselors are compassionate, professional, and kind. They will never try to tell you how to live or judge you for any difficulties you may be experiencing. Rather, they explore new ways of living and new solutions that can help you live happier and healthier.
One-on-one therapy looks different depending on the individual and their specific needs. Counselors will discuss with each individual the therapy schedule and strategies that work best for the individual so that they feel comfortable with the therapy they are receiving.
The first few therapy sessions are often an opportunity for the counselor to get to know the individual, and learn about the difficulties they are experiencing. In these sessions, the counselor will take on more of a listening role, so that the individual has the opportunity to openly and freely express themselves. After understanding the individual better, the counselor will begin to present questions to dive deeper into difficulties, emotions, and struggles.
Through these discussions, both the counselor and individual will discuss healthy strategies for handling difficult emotions or situations. Individuals are given an open space to speak freely with a compassionate and professional counselor whose main goal is to provide strategies for living a healthier and happier life.
There is no set number of therapy sessions and no one therapy strategy that works for everyone. Rather, counselors take into consideration each individual’s needs to create a strategy and therapy plan that works best for them. Some individuals may find that they are able to manage their emotions or process difficulties after only a few therapy sessions. Others may find that a consistent therapy schedule is a healthy option for them to process past difficulties and continue pursuing healthy habits in the future.
The number and consistency of individual therapy sessions is completely up to the individual. At any time, for any reason, an individual can choose to have more consistent therapy sessions or to stop therapy sessions altogether.

Our Lansing therapists often work with people with anxiety. Nearly 20% of the U.S. population suffers from anxiety, yet many keep to themselves and neglect to seek help. Red Cedar Counseling can help you develop life-changing strategies to take control of your worries and anxiety.

Depression can feel like even the common things in our life require heroic levels of effort. This can lead us to pull away from our responsibilities, our hobbies and even our loved ones. When we do that, we often then beat ourselves up over everything we “should” be doing. There is a way out of this state of mind and we can help. We can help you re-engage with life and learn how to deal with the depression.
