Professional statement

Rob Hejna is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, whose private practice is Apple Blossom Holistic Therapy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Rob currently sees clients mostly through telehealth, with a focus on individuals in their thirties or older, and occasional couples, who are experiencing increased worry or decreased meaning and hope, trouble with distractibility, difficulty coping with life transitions, or challenges in relationships perhaps because of earlier trauma. Rob welcomes all genders, but is especially dedicated to helping men negotiate their way through this stressful world.

Much of Rob’s forty-four year career was spent in work with children and youth in wilderness, inner-city, school, and psychiatric settings. He gained skill as an innovative therapist, inventing play therapies and motivational strategies for extreme cases. He now uses an innovative approach in work with adults, and has the advantage of easily relating to the ‘child within’.

The term holistic refers to the inter-relationship between our human aspects: emotion, mind, body, spirit--the imaginative, insightful part of us that finds meaning in all we do. With further background in metaphysical healing, Rob views everything as connected in a meaningful way. Life transitions such as moves, job or relationship changes, losses, or traumas impact us in all aspects.

Rob does what he calls ‘holistic systems work’, which is neither traditional analytic, nor modern behavioral. It draws on elements of each. Unproductive thoughts, for instance are fueled by subconscious feelings, trouble with the physical, or lack of purpose. Using tools like journaling for pattern awareness, dialogue with nature to build awareness of one’s true self, and methods like guided visualization to rapidly reveal the subconscious combine like a rocket fuel for healing and growth.


Message to clients

I think there is research now showing the bond between client and therapist is the primary determiner for change. Probably everyone could benefit from a neutral, supportive, confidential space where they can share what’s deeply troubling them.

In my view, the therapy part involves integrity, transparency, and dialogue--teamwork between myself and you. Although I’m an innovative therapist with some interesting ideas and tools, I will always ask: What are your goals, what have you tried already, would you like to hear about something different, or try something different? My primary goal is to guide you in self-discovery--discovery of and empowerment of your authentic, sovereign true nature, which feels what it feels, knows what it knows, loves itself, respects itself and is free. The knowledge and methods I would give you enhance healing--restoration of harmony in yourself rather than wrestling symptoms. The answer to polarized thinking for example goes beyond seeing positives--it’s seeing life as a circle.

I’ll make every effort to honor your orientation to ethnicity, race, spirituality, gender or any other identifying aspect. I am profoundly spiritual, and though not affiliated with an organized religion, I honor my clients’ chosen paths. But I do encourage my clients to practice mantra meditation. As an author and performing musician, I’m also intensely creative. So, I form therapeutic bonds more easily with those who hold similar interests--but sometimes the bond comes in some unexpected form. If you think we might be a good fit, I encourage you to reach out.
