Joe Roche, LISW, ACSW

Licensed Social Worker

As the journey of life unfolds there are times we need help and guidance sorting out challenges, transitions and changing roles/responsibilities. In my 40 years of professional work, I have extensive experience supporting individuals, couples and families to solve issues in their relationships and improve their satisfaction and happiness.

Therapy deepens our understanding of ourselves and our partner and to learn skills that help our relationships thrive. Our greatest joys and hurts are felt in our essential relationships whether it is with our spouse, children or family of origin. Although when we are stuck the challenges can seem impossible to resolve, together we will work through these challenges and you will feel competent and confident in resolving your differences.

My areas of interest are:

  • Helping individuals recover from substance abuse
  • Stressful/Life Transitions
  • Couples Counseling

I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and have spent my professional career working in the hospital and clinic settings. If you have questions about my background or approach, send me a message using the form below.

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurance companies:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans)
  • Medicare
  • Tricare
  • United Healthcare
