Michelle Fitzpatrick, LCSW
The therapeutic approaches I take are diverse and individualized depending on the history and needs of each client. These approaches include, but are not limited to Motivational Interviewing, ACT, CBT, DBT, Trauma Informed Care, and CBT-Insomnia. I have experience supporting individuals and families of all ages, genders, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientations. I have also treated a variety of different diagnoses, which include Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar, OCD, Schizophrenia, and various Personality Disorders. I have also supported people through difficult life events, such as adjustment to a new environment, divorce, unemployment and grief and loss to give a few examples.
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. I am able to recognize the strength of people who have experienced adverse events, rather than seeing weakness. I have hope that individuals can thrive, recover and move beyond devastating circumstances.
I believe that therapy is meant to 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.
