I am Amy J. Trabitz, Ph.D. Most of my patients call me Dr. Amy. I have been practicing psychology since 1984, and currently work with a great group of associates to provide services to our community.
We provide a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for therapy. We have specialties in working with children, adolescents and their families, as well as couples, and individual adults for all types of problems and concerns.
We have two locations to better serve you. Offices in Dearborn and Royal Oak, with appointments to accommodate your schedule.
It might be a bit intimidating to take that next step. In my experience, many concerns are about the cost and/or the emotional risk involved in starting therapy. Don't let these worries prevent you from seeking the help you want!
