A Case Study: Braxton's Journey

Braxton came to Bright Spot struggling with an unfulfilling relationship, constant anxiety, and unrealistic work demands that would make anyone cringe. 

Through Bright Spot’s individualized Roadmap to Wellness and the services offered from Bright Spot’s collective of experts Braxton found tools, gained skills and support that helped her gain peace and build a life that works for her. 

Braxton’s needs were best met by our therapist, Rachel, who created Braxton’s Roadmap to Wellness. Teaming with other therapists at Bright Spot, Braxton began her journey towards true healing beginning with the Safe and Sound Protocol with Laurie which paved the way for EMDR with Andrea allowing Braxton to heal from childhood issues. 

Finding the knot within the woven perfection of Braxton’s life, Rachel was able to utilize the full services Bright Spot offers in guiding Braxton to true healing.

Volunteering Community Bright Spot

We not only want to be a Bright Spot in our clients’ lives, but also in our local community as well! 

We provide therapist-led discussions for organizations to build resilience, skills and support among staff. Bright Spot therapists also love connecting with other local mental health providers and traditional and functional medicine practices. 

We also support and work with local non-profits such as Hospitality House Food Pantry. In 2022-2023, all the proceeds from the Self Care Closet will benefit For Goodness Cakes, a non-profit that provides birthday cakes for kids in foster care. We are also partnered with Detroit Dog Rescue. We are a drop-off site for dog supplies (Monday – Thursday).
