My name is Michelle Charness-Adams, and I have my LCSW (licensed clinical social worker), as well as a PsyD (doctorate in clinical psychology) and my JD in law. I believe that everyone deserves a chance to live their best life and that therapy can help you achieve this in a nurturing, empathic, and caring environment. I strive to aid clients in their journey toward self-awareness, acceptance, and self-love in an environment based on trust, safety, and validation.
My clinical focus is on issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), abuse, grief, domestic violence, self-esteem, couples' dynamics, and suicidal ideation. Additionally, I have a blog on Psychology Today regarding the intersection of law and mental health.
It is my aim that clients feel seen and heard when working with me. I create an environment based on safety, nurturing, and empathy so clients can process their feelings and emotions in a non-judgmental, accepting, and validating atmosphere that encourages self-discovery and self-worth.
