Michele Chinichian, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chandler
**Hello! I'm currently accepting new patients.** I believe everyone has the ability and desire to have a fulfilling life. I see therapy as a healing conversation that provides clients with a safe, non-judgmental place to express their challenges, and help them to rediscover their strengths, talents and resources. My intention is to create a collaborative partnership to support my clients in finding solutions that are consistent with their values and beliefs. Whatever it is that brings you to counseling, together we can overcome self-doubt and obstacles to create the healthiest version of yourself.
I have over 15 years experience doing individual and group therapy with teens, adults, and couples. My specializations cover a wide range, but I focus on depression, self esteem,women's issues, grief, anxiety & stress, work & career issues, sexual orientation, life adjustments, conflict resolution, relationship counseling and dating coaching.
I graduated with my Masters from ASU in 2000. My background also includes teaching counseling courses at Paradise Valley Community College for over 10 years. I am currently accepting new patients and offer a discounted rate for individuals without insurance.
