I have been in practice for many years, yet I still consider my work a privilege. My focus is consistently on helping clients achieve their own goals, adapting my approach to their needs. I hope that my experience and enthusiasm combine to make me effective. I also believe that life is serious enough and that even the most dire of situations will have an opportunity for the use of humor.
The simple truth is that transitions are stressful. I provide a safe place to discuss innermost concerns and to imagine solutions. Rebuild what needs to change in order to transform your life into what you desire. If you are feeling anxious, frustrated, sad, unmotivated, or just not growing personally, let's collaborate. Improve your own inner balance and get the energy you need to create a life you can admire yourself for living. Learn to structure communication and cooperation in your work environment and in your relationships at home.
Balance in life is difficult to achieve and maintain. We all feel the need for support, guidance and connection with others. I have over 15 years of experience working with children, teens and adults, helping to guide you through a process of self-awareness, insight and perspective in achieving a state of balance. In a nurturing, compassionate and empathic setting, we will explore how stress impacts your sense of well-being and manifests in unhealthy patterns and habits. We will identify and establish positive coping strategies and integrate healthy boundaries to attain the goals and life we envision.
I specialize in anger-management, sex-therapy, Emdr, depression, and anxiety. I support men and women to rediscover their self-confidence and help clients to get in touch with a positive sense of self that enhances life quality and performance. In addition I specialize in couples therapy, where I support couples to hear and understand each other in a more empathic way. My focus is to create an emotionally safe environment that allows for sharing, without repetition of destructive patterns in session. I guide couples to feel compassion which leads partners to rediscover love, hope, and optimism for the future.
You ask yourself if you're too sensitive and question your own reality. Are my feelings reasonable? Do I expect too much? It's hard to set boundaries that meet your needs. You want to feel loved and confident being yourself. I provide individual therapy for adults who have dealt with Narcissistic tendencies from significant others and who want to heal. If you've felt rejected, criticized, or manipulated, I know It can make relationships difficult to navigate and take a serious toll on self-esteem. By making more deliberate, conscious choices, it's possible to find healthier relationships that are secure and emotionally intimate.

Hello! My name is Michaela. I understand therapy as a loving container to voice our innermost thoughts, feelings and experiences and the therapeutic relationship as a powerful agent of change. My background in family therapy helps to support individuals and couples seeking to make change in their lives. I feel privileged to work with parents of young children who wish to lean into their roles as both compassionate caregivers and boundary spanners. Between the parenting intention to share a kind correction and the real time behavior of a critical or triggered reaction, there is often traumatic material. EMDR can help with that.
While providing services to couples, I have also spent 20+ years providing Trauma Therapy to various populations including people with Cognitive Disabilities, Survivors of Interpersonal Violence, Veterans and their families. Specific attention has been to significantly reducing or eliminating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I have a collaborative approach; where actively working together to deeply understand you and your issues is the first step. Working together to understand and not judge the thoughts, feelings, beliefs and experiences that are contributing to your patterns is essential. Decreasing shame, and increasing self esteem, acceptance, and compassion, are integral aspects to therapy I offer, and necessary to reducing the internal conflict which so often fuels the problems and patterns. For therapy to be effective, it calls for a very active effort on your part, as well as mine.
It is my belief that if you are seeking help in any area of your life, you are showing strength and courage. At some point in all of our lives we will need help. It is a part of being human, that we often try to avoid at great cost to our own well-being. My approach to therapy is strengths based. Each of us is unique in our own way, therefore treatment will look a little different for every individual or couple. I am a supportive, honest, and caring therapist who will strive to help you to see your own strengths and work with you to find the best tools to manage the many stressors and challenges you may be experiencing.
