Michael Mickelson

LCSW

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social work with 15 years of Social Work experience and 5 years of post graduate experience as a LCSW. I graduated from Indiana University with my Masters of Social Work. After a short stay in community mental health, I was hired by the Veterans Health Administration. While at the VA have worked in the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Treatment Program (PRRTP) working with veteran who are struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorder. I am trained and certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Substance Use Disorder and Motivational Enhancement. I have experience working with Substance use disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression and adjustment disorder.

I prefer a client centered approach to my therapy style utilizing evidence based therapies in a non-judgmental way to meet the client where they are. The client is an active member of the treatment team and has a deciding vote in the course of treatment.
