Counselor / ADA Counselor, VACANT
Registered Nursing Program Counselor, Michelle King, JD, LPC-S (she/her)
I am Michelle King, JD, LPC-S, a Licensed Professional Counselor and legal consultant with 13 years of clinical counseling experience working with adults and adolescents as individuals and groups. My experience has allowed me to serve clients in settings like inpatient hospitals, outpatient clinics, partial hospitalization programs, residential treatment centers, juvenile, and adult forensics. I was drawn to the field of psychology as more and more people sought my advice and counsel growing up. I look forward to helping others become their best selves through brief solution-focused treatment.
Life can be tough to navigate alone and I’m here to help you! My approach is with empathy and compassion, along with a direct and straightforward style. Together we can challenge negative, ineffective thoughts and patterns and bring positive change to your life. I work with adults, couples, first responders, college and professional athletes, executives, and college students. So, whether it’s work stress, depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, adjustment to new transitions in your life, LGBTQ+, or pre/post-surgical counseling, I can help with brief solution-focused treatment.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy has had some of the greatest success in research with a wide variety of disorders, from phobias to anxiety to depression. This therapy is one of the few empirically validated therapies on the market today. Does that mean it will work for you? Not necessarily, but it’s probably worth your effort to give it a try.
