Rita Newell, MS, LPC


I am a Licensed Psychotherapist and obtained my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of St. Francis in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and hold a post graduate certificate in Sexual Health Therapy and Education from the University of Michigan.  I specialize in the treatment of sexual health and traumas, gender and identity issues, addiction, mood disorders, chronic pain and relationship problems.  I have 15 years’ experience in outpatient, inpatient and school settings, working with children, adolescents and adults.

I believe in creating a non- judgmental, authentic, safe environment which allows for honesty, problems solving and growth.

I utilize eclectic, individualized approaches to psychotherapy, emphasizing a client’s sense of empowerment, enabling them to make positive changes in their lives.

I work out of the Plymouth Michigan office location.
