Announcement icon Due to COVID-19 and the concern for my client's health, ALL appointments will be held via Telehealth until further notice (updated 10/14/2).
Michelle Dean currently has a waitlist for new clients.
I specialize in working with children and adolescents alongside their parents. I am also experienced in working with adults who are specifically struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders, or have suffered from sexual, physical, emotional abuse, or any other traumatic event. My experience in private practice, a psychiatric hospital, and Children's Advocacy Center has expanded my knowledge, broadened my clinical experience, and has allowed me to expand the clientele and presenting issues I am able to effectively work with.
I hold a strong systemic view when working with children/adolescents and specialize in behavioral plans, families of divorce, parent consultation, play/activity therapy, and victims of abuse. I value parent's involvement in the therapeutic process and am successful in creating a strong relationship with both the parents and child.
My goal is to create an environment that is welcoming, values trust, & provides support and understanding. I primarily practice Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Family Systems Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) but am able to accommodate the client’s needs to equip them with the tools necessary to complete their goals.
