I tailor my approach to meet the needs of those who come to see me, but offer every individual the respect and compassion they deserve. Maybe you are seeking insight and awareness for the purpose of personal growth. Perhaps you are looking to address a particular issue and need someone who can be goal directed and offer specific skills and feedback. Maybe it's hard to name just what is going on and this is one of the reasons you have decided to seek help. No two people come to therapy for the same reason because no two people are the same.

I believe engaging in the psychotherapy process is a courageous step in your efforts toward growth and healing. I approach psychotherapy as a unique kind of learning process, facilitated by a collaborative therapeutic relationship and a safe, confidential environment. My role is to be a listener, facilitator, teacher and advocate. I believe vulnerability is the courageous opposite of weakness that can open a pathway to change. *** More information is available on my website: https://micheleburgner.com/ ***

I believe when clients have a safe place with genuine understanding and free of judgement, they are able to be their true selves and do their best work. With support and some guidance, clients have the opportunity to rediscover their strengths, build self-awareness and experience true connection which can lead to a life of purpose and fulfillment. I believe if you are willing, you have the ability to take action and kindle the fire inside of you to kick-start the changes you want to see in your life. I am passionate about helping to empower you to achieve your goals by bringing hope and possibility through psychotherapy.

It's okay to be a unsure what you need out of therapy. It's ok to recognize that things aren't going well but can't exactly figure out why or how to change this. Questions and curiosity about the way we operate in our lives is wonderful starting place! It is okay if you've been to therapy before but still feel stuck. We are each full of endless potential.

You do not have to live the way you’ve always lived. The suffering does not have to persist. You can choose yourself. This thing called life offers unexpected obstacles that cause a course change. Therapy enables us to feel empowered to overcome our barriers. We must self-search and manage internal issues to obtain that empowered position. There is no point to a bandaid approach, so we would work on the deeper issues that cause presenting problems, like unhealthy attachments and trauma. These are the source of anxious thinking, depression, and addictions. I am EMDR trained, which helps us to address the original issues.

Making that initial contact is by far the hardest part. I appreciate you reaching out to me. Making it easy to discuss difficult topics is my job, and that happens by making sure you know you are in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. People may seek out counseling due to a wide variety of feelings: fear, anxiety, stress, depression, anger, sadness, confusion, apathy, heartbreak, grief, or any other aspect of the incredibly complex human experience. I'm honored to help you on your journey towards emotional recovery and growth. I try to keep costs reasonable and affordable.

Do you find yourself overthinking situations or just plain stuck because you are trying to get it right? Do you feel anxious because you are overthinking about life in general? Maybe there are other emotions to sort through? Sometimes feelings of sadness or your emotions get in the way. The words “Mental Health" or "Therapy" can be intimidating, daunting, or even stigmatizing. Actually, these terms are an indication that you are interested in becoming the best version of yourself and improving your quality of life.

I truly believe we all have within us the capacity to live a great and meaningful life. If you struggle to believe this, it is often a symptom of living life out of alignment with your core values or attunement with who you truly are. It's easy to get bogged down and covered by all the expectations and narratives placed on us from outside sources (family, work, society, etc.) and we lose ourselves in all the noise. Work with me will include slowing down, turning inward, & getting clear on what matters most to you, which will in turn influence your decision-making and shape your perspective and how you view life moving forward.

It is my belief that many of our current problems come from our earliest relationships, and that these relationships have an enduring impact on our present lives. I work with men and women who are struggling with depression and anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-worth or not-being-good-enough, anger, divorce adjustment, and fear of losing control. I am also active in helping parents learn to be more connected and calm with their children, creating healthy relationships that will impact their children throughout their lives.

Healing can only happen by allowing your pain and your hopes to be witnessed. So many people suffer in silence, carry burdens of intergenerational trauma or being neurodivergent in a world not built for them, and have never REALLY been given the space to use their voice. If this describes you, you belong here. Part of my goal as your therapist is to help you find your voice again (or perhaps for the first time) and have the opportunity to be truly seen and heard. I will bring full presence, respect, and compassion to our work together to support you in moving toward the life you desire and deserve.

Ideal clients are individuals who may struggle to cope with stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, or life in general, feel stuck in recurrent problematic behavioral or relationship patterns, and want to improve their life and feel at peace. We all have an innate ability to grow and heal. My primary job as a therapist is to help clients tap into that healing process and reconnect with and strengthen their natural resources, talents, and spirit so that they can become the person they want and were created to be.
