About me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 20+ years of experience in an outpatient clinical setting. I have worked with a wide range of individuals and problems. I really enjoy helping people find greater happiness and satisfaction in their lives. My approach tends to be informal. I have had training in many modalities, but I feel the most important part of therapy is the quality of our relationship. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect. When we are communicating, you are the most important person to me in that moment. I want to understand your problems from your perspective. I will bring my years of experience and training to our time to figure out together what will help overcome the obstacles you experience. I know seeking help and trusting a stranger with private things is hard. I respect that. I will try to earn that respect each time we connect.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Michal Jorgens. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

My time working with Dr. Jorgens was wonderful. I felt able to open up and talk through things with her right away. We made some great progress in just a few sessions that had a great positive impact on my daily life. I hope to continue again when I have more funds. Until then I will take forward what we talked about in our sessions, and continue my personal growth and mental health journey, with great thanks given to Dr. Jorgens!
