Where you come from, what you have learned, and how you have been loved, is essential to how you feel and show up in relationships. I help my clients see clearer, feel deeper, and become more present in their lives and relationships. I support the process of healing and change through new awarenesses within the context of society and culture, family of origin, and attachment relationships. I approach my practice and life from an empathetic, nurturing, non-normative framework.
I work with adults and children to address issues like anxiety disorders and OCD, as well as depression and behavioral difficulties. I work with families and couples to address relationship difficulties as well. My clients are looking to better their lives; some hope to treat individual issues, whereas some wish to address a variety of areas.
We all know life can be tough, and this is especially true for adolescents and young adults in our increasingly turbulent world. My practice, Arete Psychological Services, is designed to address the special needs of adolescents, young adults, and their families. "Arete" is the ancient Greek word for excellence in all aspects of personhood. In the spirit of this idea, I am deeply committed to assisting young people capitalize on what is healthy and resourceful in their nature, in enabling them to use their existing abilities more effectively, to develop new life skills, and mature in positive directions.
Everyone is unique, and psychotherapy should be tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. My goal is provide a safe and comfortable environment in which we can examine your personal conflicts, stresses and challenges and come up with solutions that will allow you to live your best life.
Life is challenging. Directly confronting those challenges in a supportive space is one of the most rewarding decisions you can make. I have 7+ years experience guiding clients as they examine the factors contributing to the anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and stress in their lives. In that process we work together to focus on the coping skills and solutions that lead to greater life satisfaction. I am passionate about helping clients achieve greater confidence, self-awareness and balance through authentic and connected living.
Are you struggling with daily tasks, constantly feeling overwhelmed, feeling restless at night, and having racing thoughts during the day? Are you having trouble connecting with people or often feeling misunderstood? If you can become more aware of your feelings, you can learn to identify what is causing your anxiety, build coping strategies to more effectively manage and mitigate your anxiety, and communicate more effectively with the important people in your life.
Many face stressors that may feel unbearable. Healing is a multilevel process that is unique to each individual. My goal in therapy is to work with individuals on creating positive insight in their lives and developing healthy coping strategies to assist with daily stressors.

Stress can become problematic and stop us from reaching our full potential. In my work, I draw upon my wisdom and knowledge working with diverse populations by respecting the human experience; focusing on dignity, empowerment, and healing.

The purpose of my interventions is to reduce problematic stress to a manageable level of stress. I focus on the concept of progress not perfection when striving to help the client achieve their goals.
As a psychotherapist, I enjoy working with clients looking to optimize life experiences & seeking assistance in achieving this goal. I primarily enjoy working with teenagers, young adults, adolescents, & parents who aspire to be the best version of themselves and need guidance in communicating within the parent/guardian & child/adolescent relationship. Life is about finding a healthy balance of communication with others & most importantly: yourself! remember: finding a therapist that is best for you is like finding a house, a spouse, or a pair of shoes: sometimes, you have to try on a few to find what works for you!
I am a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, and have a PhD in clinical social work, with a practice in Westport, CT. I have over 25 years of clinical experience in treating depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and parenting concerns. I also work with grandparents. I see adolescents, adults and couples including non-traditional families, and LGBTQ. Nothing is more important and comforting than feeling understood. No concern is too big or too small to explore. I welcome all feelings. Whether you feel overwhelmed or have feelings, thoughts and behavior patterns that concern you, we will work together to achieve your goals.
*Currently not accepting new clients* Have you experienced trauma that has left you feeling a lack of control, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, misunderstood, or incapable of actively engaging with your environment? Therapy should assist you in regaining a sense of control and allow you to develop the skills to reengage with your environment in a positive and hopeful manner. My goal is to provide a safe space to process your thoughts and learn effective skills to work through the memories and images you may experience on a daily basis.
I believe that the more you put into therapy, the more you get out of it. Therapy is not solely a place to vent, but an avenue to strategize real behavioral changes to improve your life and relationships. By making a conscious effort to implement those changes outside of the therapy office and taking responsibility for yourself, you are most likely to benefit from treatment. I am a masters-level, Connecticut-licensed clinician with over 20 years of experience in outpatient and residential treatment. I am a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and a clinical supervisor.
I specialize in children and teenagers struggling with attention problems, depression, anxiety, anger problems, poor school performance, and general problems in behavior. I make it a point to work very closely with parents as I appreciate the fear and anxiety of having your child struggle. I am compassionate, but direct in my style. I am always available as a resource for parents and as an advocate for services for their children. I have worked with children of all ages for over twenty five years.
I view psychology and mental health from the lens of how we work in our environmental and family groups. I am a family therapist who looks at individuals as part of a network of mental health needs. Even when I work with the individual, family and community matters to me.
Accepting new clients! Therapy is a journey of discovery, and never one size fits all. Michelle will walk with you on this journey, meeting you where you are, and assisting you where needed, to get you where you want to be. Talking will only take you so far, the real work begins when you walk out that door/ turn off that video and face the area of concern(s) in your life. Making changes is not easy and everyone has different views and goals. Her job is to help support the client as they align their lifestyle to their goal, and provide a safe place for one to examine one's self and understand one's circumstances.
You are probably thinking about therapy because something in your life isn't working -- maybe self-doubt, depression or anxiety is interfering with you getting through the day and completing tasks - perhaps experiences as a child or a history of trauma have left you emotionally reactive or numb - relationships in your life aren't really how you'd like them to be - or you are trying to navigate a new phase of life. I see therapy as a collaborative process to help you understand what's getting in the way and to develop the tools to reach your goals.
