About Our Therapists

Each therapist at Altruistic Therapy Services is qualified to provide specialized services that are customized to meet the needs of every family member that partakes in treatment. They are passionate about educating families and providing resources needed to leave each session with an understanding of how to address goals outside of treatment. All staff are able to service pediatrics and adults with an array of disorders. They are certified in many areas including VitalStim and LSVT therapy which is a rare specialty in this area of Michigan.

How We’re Different

We complete a pre-screen prior to your appointment. Once you arrive to your appointment, we then complete an intensive standardized assessment that can take 1-4 sessions to complete. We compile the diagnostic information, family interview, medical history and all our informal and objective clinical information and complete a personalized plan of care that is custom to your loved one’s needs. We then spend time counseling all family members that choose to partake on the findings and recommendations so that everyone understands all of the information and findings presented. Treatments consist of parents and or loved ones observing and learning the cueing hierarchy and techniques needed to work on goals outside of treatment. We are one of the few therapy clinics that take this approach as many therapy clinics feel that “family members hinder the loved ones’ progress.” We feel that with appropriate education and counseling, family members are an invaluable part of the progress, especially for infants and children.
