Renee Michaels, PhD, LCSW, CAP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Clearwater
Is anxiety keeping you from living the life you deserve? Is stress affecting you at work or school? Are you frequently irritable and don't know why? Are you using substances to cope? Do you experience panic or emotional dysregulation? I will teach you how your brain protects you in so-called scary situations and sabotages the success and abundance you want. Together, we will develop an individualized plan to set you on a path to healing with a pocket full of tools to master success!
As an integrative psychotherapist, I have a number of modalities such as CBT and DBT to help you improve your everyday life. I help people with chronic pain as well as couples who experience infidelity due to an affair or out of control sexual behavior.

Renee Michaels's Groups

DBT Skills for Adults

This DBT group is specifically for women who deal with depression/anxiety and high emotional arousal, and can be easily triggered into an uncomfortable mood state and may have a history of self-harm or suicidal behaviors. Members must be in individual therapy while going through group. Members will also have phone access to therapist weekly as needed. We limit the group to 8 people so there is plenty of individual treatment time. Call for an assessment to see if you are a good fit for this type of group.
