Michelle Giresi, Ph.D. is not currently accepting new clients.

Are strong feelings taking over and getting in the way of your goals? Are you having trouble getting along with people? Are you or your family stuck in an unhelpful pattern of interacting? Everyone has a right to their best life. To that end, I provide evidence-based treatment to youths, adults, and families to address problems related to mood, anxiety, trauma, behavior, and relationships. Through an active and collaborative partnership, I want to help you improve your relationship with yourself and others. Together we will identify treatment goals, develop treatment plans, and measure your progress towards your goals.

My primary orientation is cognitive behavioral. I help individuals identify, challenge, and change unhelpful beliefs and behaviors, manage strong feelings, and develop self-understanding and self-acceptance. I help families reduce distress and conflict by improving communication and problem-solving, and restructuring relationships.

I want to help you challenge and change unhelpful mindsets and behaviors. Take the first step in breaking unhelpful patterns by contacting me today.
