ABOUT US


Medication Management Team

Lindsay-Rose Dykema, MD, MPH
(she/her/hers)

I work with adults with mood disorders, psychotic disorders, anxiety/trauma-related disorders, and substance use disorders. I am a police/prison abolitionist and am especially interested in working with Detroiters who have had ties to the criminal injustice system (including all forms of state violence — police brutality, incarceration, probation/parole). Telehealth and in-person sessions available.

I identify as queer, and my practice will always be a safe and affirming space for the LGBTQ community.

Psychotherapy Team

Maxwell Chisholm, LMSW
(he/him/his)

I work with individuals with a wide variety of mental health concerns and have a particular interest in working with members of the LGBTQ* community. I identify as a queer transgender man and enjoy work that allows me to give back to my own community. That said, I genuinely love working with folks of all backgrounds. I'm passionate about learning and increasing awareness and knowledge. I view therapy as a place in which both I, as the clinician, and my clients can learn and grow. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is comfortable, open, and safe for all of my clients.

I have a partner and small herd of pets at home; the latter of which like to make guest appearances on my telehealth sessions with clients. In my free time I enjoy playing fetch with my dogs, video games, reading, and superhero movies. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Social Work from Eastern Michigan University.

Joanna Karner, LMSW, CAADC
(she/her/hers)

I am a clinical social worker with a passion for collaborating with clients as they work towards their well-being goals while also addressing the systemic oppressions impacting their lives. I have an interest in working with the LGBTQ community, those who have been harmed by the criminal injustice system and those with a complex trauma history.
 
I have worked as a case manager, therapist and program coordinator in a variety of settings including small non-profit organizations and Community Mental Health. 
 
My areas of specialization are working with adults who have mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma-related disorders, psychotic disorders and substance use disorders. I am DBT trained and I incorporate a great deal of mindfulness practice into my approach with clients. My clinical approach will always be trauma-informed with an emphasis on client empowerment and promoting resilience.
 
I love to practice yoga, foster dogs, read books and hang out with my loved ones.
