Sarah Harrier, MS, LMFT, CCTP

I am a fully licensed marriage and family therapist, and certified clinical trauma professional, specializing in individual, couples, and family therapy. I maintain a private practice in both Brighton and Okemos, Michigan.

I earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Alma College before moving to the State of Washington to pursue a master's degree in marriage and family therapy from Seattle Pacific University.

I work with clients who experience a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, low self-esteem, marital or relationship concerns (specifically helping clients heal from infidelity and/or poor connection and communication skills), grief and loss of any kind, and poor relationship with food and body image. I also work with the LGBTQ+ community regarding a multitude of concerns including struggles both individually and in a family unit with gender dysphoria, creating and maintaining healthy and safe support systems, and finding acceptance with one's sexuality.

I practice from an eclectic approach, which incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), internal family systems model (IFS), solution-focused therapy, experiential therapy, client-centered therapy, and strength-based therapy.

My hobbies and interests include: spending time with my husband, kids, and animals (2 dogs and 3 cats), crocheting, reading, and exercising.

Emrielle VanCleave, MA, LLMFT

By providing a nonjudgmental and safe space for clients, I help individuals, couples, and families through their experiences with trauma, attachment, emotional dysregulation, interpersonal conflicts, and life transitions. Through acceptance, curiosity, and transparency, my goal is to help clients heal from past and ongoing experiences that keep them from reaching their fullest potential.

With experience in a variety of different types of therapies and interventions, I work closely with my clients to find out what works best for the goals they are trying to achieve. I have experience working with children as young as 5 and older adults well into their 90s.

I practice various forms of therapy, including internal family systems (IFS), motivational interviewing, psychodynamic, emotion focused therapy (EFT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and person-centered therapy.

I enjoy spending time with my family, being creative and making art, hiking, swimming, being outdoors, playing video games, drinking a nice hot cup of tea, and reading.

Madeleine Lamb, MS, LLMFT

I earned a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Michigan State University, and then completed a master’s degree in Couple and Family Therapy from Purdue University Northwest.

I provide a warm, attuned, and safe space for clients seeking support for a variety of concerns including self-esteem, anxiety, trauma, identity exploration and acceptance, relationship concerns, life transitions, and parenting. I deeply value helping people become empowered to name their needs and foster intimacy, emotional awareness, curiosity, and compassion in their lives. While I will bring my education, training, and experience to our therapeutic relationship, you are the expert on your lived experience.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, rooted in my belief that authentic connection between client and therapist is the foundation for successful therapy. I incorporate various modalities in my work according to clients’ unique needs and goals, including narrative therapy, feminist therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and emotion focused therapy (EFT). I strive to provide responsive, affirming care to clients of all genders, sexualities, races, and other important intersecting identities.

I love going on walks with a podcast or audiobook, spending time with my partner, going out with friends, dancing, watching Netflix, and trying new restaurants and coffee shops.
