Safe Space Therapeutic Services, LLC

You are unique, and you're much more than just a diagnosis. My name is Ruth Hiner, and I am a fully-licensed clinical psychologist. I explore all aspects of my clients' lives from emotional to medical to social to spiritual to family to day-to-day issues. I offer a safe space for you to explore what's going on in your life, and no issue is too small or too complicated to discuss. Whether you are dealing with life changes, relationship issues, grief and loss or just trying to figure out life, you're welcome to come and work through what's bothering you.

My office serves the Metro Detroit area, and is located on Woodward Avenue near 696 in Huntington Woods. I am a short commute from Royal Oak, Birmingham, Southfield, Ferndale, Detroit and surrounding areas. There is a bus stop outside of my building, and there is access for people who have physical challenges. Parking is free.

Safe Space Therapeutic Services offers daytime and evening appointments. I offer a free initial session for those who are paying for their sessions, and I also offer sliding scale for people who need it. Call today to set up an appointment and begin your journey toward a better life.

I offer multiple options to pay for sessions. Therapy is an investment in yourself. Here are some ways to make it happen:

Private Pay. You have the option to pay for your services yourself, and your first session would be free. Sessions cost $150, and sliding scale is avaialble for those who need it. I accept cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover.

Insurance. I accept the following insurances at the moment: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Blue Care Network, United Health Care, Cigna, and Humana. As a fully-licensed psychologist, I am also an out-of-network provider. If you chose this option, you pay my full fee, and I provide you with invoices that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Please verify your insurance benefits before your first session. Each insurance plan is different, so I would not be able to tell you what your financial obligation is before your first session. You are responsible for paying your deductibles and co-pays.

About Me

My name is Ruth Hiner, and I am a fully-licensed clinical psychologist. I graduated from the Michigan School of Professional Psychology in 2013. I am a musician, animal-lover, and improvisor who believes that as adults we forget how to play. I am also an ally to the LGBTQ population.

I take an eclectic approach to treatment and I tailor my methods to what works best for you and you alone. I've had experience in various settings, such as substance abuse treatment, Christian counseling, LGBTQ community centers, and traditional out-patient clinics. Before becoming a psychologist, I volunteered at Common Ground Sanctuary on their crisis line. I work with pre-teens, teenagers, and adults.

I'm a pet owner, and I understand their importance in our lives. I also understand the emotional roller coaster of having a chronically-ill pet and the devastation of losing them.

I'm open to whatever experiences my clients bring to me and I work with them as we look at all aspects of their lives. I consider nothing to be too insignificant to discuss.
