Arliss Logan, Psy.D.
Dr. Logan enjoys working with people of all ages. She brings over 15 years of experience working with children, families, and adults in home, school, hospital, and community settings. She has worked as a credentialed early childhood special education teacher, early interventionist, and MI licensed psychotherapist. Dr. Logan earned her undergraduate degree in psychology from Wayne State University, her master’s degree in child and family studies from the University of Wisconsin, a second master’s degree in early childhood special education from Santa Clara University, and her doctorate in clinical psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology, San Francisco Bay Area. She has experience providing therapy and testing services to clients from diverse populations, social economic groups, and training levels.
Dr. Logan brings strength based, relationship focused perspectives into her work. She believes the goal of therapy is to build awareness, compassion, understanding, respect, empathy and acceptance toward yourself and others. Her intention is to let you know you are at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing (even when the work is hard or the feelings low), to hold good intentions for you when you can’t hold them for yourself, and to allow a space for distress to be diminished.
Dr. Logan also enjoys working with people in the process of change or transformation in their personal and professional lives (Career exploration, first generation college students, those interested in making their lives happier and more fulfilling, and those looking for that spark). She strives to create a safe space to explore new ideas and address symptoms that are often part of the transformation process. During such time, therapy can increase coping skills and mental clarity.
Dr. Logan understands many children and teens have problems that affect how they feel, act, and learn. She believes therapy is a type of treatment that can help children go through tough times like, family and school problems, stress, low self-esteem, grief, sadness, and anger. She has experience working with children and teens that struggle with ADHD, ASD, depression, anxiety, and other challenges. Dr. Logan believes early intervention can help small problems before they become more entrenched, and help children get back on the path to a healthy trajectory. In therapy, children learn by doing. While working with children. therapy may include work with family. Sessions may include activities like drawing, playing, and talking.
