Hi I am Dr Edith Montgomery, I am a clinical psychologist.

I have been doing clinical psychology now for going on thirty years. It’s interesting, it takes a while to get people to realize  that talking to psychologist doesn’t mean you are crazy but talking to psychologist for me mean you got a lot of sense and you just need to deal with  things that are going on in your life.

At an early age, I liked talking to people and I noticed that people talk to me very easily, so as a result I started listening to people as early as fifth grade, and I kind of grew from there, and I always laugh and tell people, I saw above new heart, I thought it was cool that he was a psychologist on the show and then I saw Dr Joyce brothers, and said maybe I can do this, I think I like talking to people and went forward from there.

I wanted to have an opportunity to make a difference in the city, and my office right now is in Farmington Hills and it’s difficult to get space in the city. Through Motor city match gave me a chance to not only get the funding but find the building so I can open a business there.

How was the Motor city match process?

It was interesting and actually it was not as hard as most people would think, I tell people I sat down one night and I dreamed a little dream and I filled the paper work of what I thought would be the best thing for the City of Detroit.

So I get a lot of surprise, people when they see me, how often can many go? Okay Dr Montgomery is ready, I am ready to see you, and they go, where is he? They go, no it’s me, I am Dr Montgomery, and they go “you!?”,”you don’t look like…” Yes and there, I went to school, did the things I needed to do and I like helping people, which is what got me started in the field.

I am looking to empower everyone, every age, as I always say, I treat you at the age you are when you come to me. With youth, what I’d like to do, is to do assessment with them so we can find the strengths and weaknesses, and that way we can let the schools know, this is how you can help and be more effective in school.

In addition I want be able to give youth, younger girls whoever, opportunity for group therapy, to talk about what’s going on in their lives, and like I say my favorite part of my program is going to be if you sing, dance, act, paint, anything you want to do, I want empower you to do it so we are going to do a talent show on regular basis so our youth can get a chance to figure out what they really want to be in this world.

I am hoping to welcome everybody in the community by the first of August at the latest or they can contact at my office at (248)539-3950 or they can catch me on my email; ermpsych@sbcglobal.net. My initials and what I do.
