Children and adolescents. I’ve counseled children and adolescents (ages 3 through 18) both in clinical and academic settings. Clinically, I addressed childhood trauma, family changes due to divorce, children on the Autism spectrum, behavioral issues, academic struggles, bullying, depression, anxiety, and self-harm. Often, at the beginning of a session with a child, I encountered parents who felt frustrated and helpless. I wanted to address those feelings. I started by helping parents focus on strengthening their parenting skills and parents found a way to restore and repair relationships, to reestablish authority and to create a discipline strategy that worked for them. Individuals. In counseling individuals through diverse issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma, I discovered that the strength of the therapeutic relationship between counselor and client is everything. It is a brave thing to search for and to ask for help. I always want my clients to know I respect how hard it is to take that first step and I want them to know I’ll be there for every step that follows. With trauma clients, I’ve addressed issues with clients such as childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, physical abuse, and PTSD. I’ve worked with substance abuse clients and their families in dealing with generational addiction; codependency; enabling; setting boundaries and recovering and relapse. I ‘walked with’ clients through difficult life changes: divorce; empty nest and caring for elderly parents. Couples. I am trained in Gottman Couples Therapy. Gottman therapy helps couples forge stronger relationships by building respect and trust; opening communication; managing conflicts; repairing patterns of discourse and building on shared experiences.” Michelle’s therapeutic approach is Rogerian (person-centered).
