Michelle Fitzpatrick LCSW

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Green. The therapeutic approaches I take are diverse and individualized depending on the history and need of each client. These approaches include but are not limited to Motivational Interviewing, ACT, CBT, and DBT. I have no particular group of individuals that I prefer to treat; on the contrary, I have experience supporting individuals and families of all ages, genders, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
My focus has been trauma-centered, recovery, and person-centered therapy, which means that I am sensitive to the difficult experiences people come to share and provide a non-judgmental, comfortable space for sharing. I have hope that individuals can thrive, recover and move beyond devastating circumstances.
I believe that therapy should be a collaborative experience between therapist and client. I have the expertise on therapeutic approaches, and you have the expertise on your inner thoughts and dreams. Together we can use this knowledge to support you in reaching your goals and coping with new situations.
