Kamara Marsh


About Me

I am Kamara Lynn Marsh MA LPC CAADC ADS, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor as well as received my certification in Auricular Acupuncture. I received my Master’s degree in counseling from a Christian perspective with an emphasis in treatment of addictions from Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor, Michigan. I completed my counseling internship at Hope Network Rehabilitation Services in East Lansing Michigan where I worked with individuals with traumatic brain injuries and received training in dealing with post-traumatic stress, grief and loss, depression, anxiety/panic, addictions, and re-entry/life change difficulties. I spent a decade facilitating substance abuse re-entry groups at three county jails and six years working for a district health department where I received training and experience in a variety of holistic approaches in the treatment of both mental health and substance abuse disorders. Over the past two decades, I have utilized a variety of clinical interventions including but not limited to: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Behavioral Interventions, Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Auricular Acupuncture and Emotional Freedom Techniques. In 2007, I published a "faith-based" book I wrote and illustrated on overcoming loss in life. I ran my own private practice in East Lansing, Michigan for almost four years before relocating to Northern Michigan to direct a residential substance abuse facility.

"I love helping those who may be feeling "stuck" in life nurture and utilize their faith to overcome their challenges and walk out their God given calling in life."

Written by E.M. on Jul 30, 2020 after counseling with Kamara for 3 months

Kami is a part of why I am still alive. That's not an exaggeration at all. Her kindness, consistent faith in my healing and her ability to listen to me without judgment are changing the way I view myself, my path in ife and my future as a woman and mother.
