Merry E. Porter, LMSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Howell
I am a highly experienced therapist who comes from a holistic perspective, that is, all aspects of a personís life are significant. It is my intention that people I work with experience a sense of being understood and cared for. I especially enjoy my work when clients find inner resources to understand and resolve their difficulties. Clients are greatly relieved, sometimes amazed, when for the first time, through the application of Mindfulness CBT, they are able to manage their busy, distracted minds, seemingly overwhelming emotions, or the constant distraction of chronic pain.
I love to see people turn painful experiences into increased strength, or transform anxiousness into confidence. As individuals and couples discover their capacity to successfully manage their life challenges, they feel empowered to love well in the world.
