About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Alabama. I have over 4 years of experience working with adult women who struggle with challenges in life. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced spiritual growth and challenges. For clients who have substance abuse issues, I work with clients via telemental health who are presently in recovery and are sober.

One of my core values is unconditional positive regard. "Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care." Teddy Roosevelt
My counseling approach is integrative: I use Client-centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic, and Stages of Change as therapeutic interventions. These approaches will help clients to navigate through their challenges. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Florida A & M University, and I obtained my Master's Degree in Counseling from Argosy University in Atlanta, GA.

Michella quickly assessed my situation, genuinely listened to my concerns and offered resources for me to take some action to feel better. I appreciate the contacts during the week to remind me of my goals and takeaways from the last session. I feel like I'm making progress already.

She’s the first therapist I’ve had that understands my true concerns and knows how to peel back the layers. She “gets me” and that’s important to me.

I’ve been seeing my therapist for a while now, and can truly say I’m thoroughly benefiting from the service. Mrs. Rahming is great at her job. I knew that the services were working when I was told by a friend she’s noticed a change in me. I’m more confident, able to set boundaries and starting to put myself first. If you have a chance to work with Mrs.Rahming please do you won’t regret it!

Michella is the best! For the first time I have a therapist that I feel comfortable enough to be open and honest with, which in turn has made therapy so much more progressive. Even when I feel like I don’t have anything to discuss at therapy, Michella ensures that I know the direction to take in order to put in work and better myself. In just a matter of a few months, she has helped me completely redirect my life into the direction that I feel like it needs to be going in. I’m so appt that better help paired us.

Written on Aug 17, 2022 after therapy with Michella for 5 months on issues concerning grief, and sleeping disorders

Michella Rahming is a very insightful counselor. Initially , I was receiving counseling to manage the loss of a friend due to covid . In the midst of my sessions , I had a mentor and teacher to expire as well . I was an emotional mess. Michella pivoted in the moment of the immedate loss and identified tools I needed . Her sessions helped me to sit with the grief and learn from it. I have had a tendency to not acknowledge grief/ loss fully. And it subsequently affected my physical health later.I appreciated the worksheets Michella gave for reflection. As well as, referrals to group seminars on the better help site and support groups in the community . I gained perspective, strategy and emotional support when I needed it most. Thanks Michella and Betterhelp.com

My therapist (Michelle Rahming) is everything! I’ve been in session for 2 weeks coming up on 3 and my therapist is a great listener, she’s empathetic, she make suggestions to help me find different ways (strategies) that can help me cope with what feelings I’m experiencing.

I look forward to my sessions, sharing my feelings. I am so grateful for my therapist for helping me heal through past and present trauma. No one said it would be easy but no one said it’s impossible either. I could say so much more but I’ll save some room for others to chime in. Thank you so much I really appreciate you

Michella has been a godsend. She is very patient and understanding. She challenges you and takes you out of your comfort zone because she sees the strength in you even when you don’t see it within yourself. This journey has not been a walk in the park but it has definitely been worth it. You have to be open minded but once you make that decision you will definitely start to see and feel the changes and growth.

I am feeling better about myself and I think it has alot to do with this therapy. I no I haven't been doing it long but I am noticing a difference in myself. Also I love how she talks to me. I was afraid a therapist would expect me to do all the talking but Michella talks to me. And relates to me. I really like her and the worksheets she sends me. Some I find difficult but she encourages me to just do my best. She seems to send the exact information I need at the time. She is very responsive to my messages and she cares about my well being and what is best for my mental health instead of just a paycheck.
