Profile
“In my practice, I utilize a collaborative therapeutic approach to support my clients in identifying, exploring, and addressing their barriers, patterns, and belief systems.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Hi! I'm Michelle, a telehealth-only private practice therapist in New York. Prior to my private practice, I was a therapist and director at a nonprofit organization. I also have experience at the community mental health level, using different treatment modalities to help those who are seriously mentally ill, homeless, or victims of trauma. My decision to become a therapist and a licensed clinical social worker was influenced by my passion for mental health advocacy and access as well as an interest in supporting others through their journey to wellness.
What should someone know about working with you?
In my practice, I utilize a collaborative therapeutic approach to support my clients in identifying, exploring, and addressing their barriers, patterns, and belief systems. I begin with a psychodynamic approach to get to know my clients. I then use an integrated therapeutic approach, reflecting on past experiences and incorporating goal-oriented interventions into their treatment. My priority is to create a supportive space in which to explore not only struggles but also successes.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am constantly looking for new training and updates on approaches to therapy. I also consult with other providers to ensure my clients are receiving the best treatment.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited that telehealth has emerged as a way to grant mental health treatment to those who might have not been able to access it otherwise. It is also a way for those with busy schedules to squeeze therapy into their week!
