Since 1983, the Michigan Family Institute has helped hundreds of individuals and families overcome personal and family issues. Our licensed therapists are highly skilled and experienced in problem-solving techniques that minimize the length of therapy and produce desired results.

The positive results of our therapy and specialized programs are the bedrock of our success. So much so that other practitioners have sought training and consultation services from us in our proven and advanced family therapy techniques. Our students have included mental health professionals, family service agencies, court personnel, hospital psychiatric staff and private practice professionals. We also provide supervision for licensing of marriage and family therapists and psychologists.
