About Me

My name is Michelle Bailey. I am a United States Navy Veteran. I have been in the field of mental health for over 15 years. I earned a Doctoral degree in education and a Master’s degree in counseling. I hold a Florida license in mental health MH8624 which has opened doors to assist many clients and their families by imparting knowledge in ways that meet the needs of clients, their families, and the community in which they reside. I specialized in working with adults in the area of mental and emotional issues to include traumatic experiences, substance use, mood disorders/ anxiety, loss and grief issues and adjustment concerns. I believe in the power of cognitive behavioral therapy and a holistic approach learning how to reconnect ourselves to our natural state of well-being while exploring healthier ways of coping with whatever life hands us in the present moment. Sometimes, just experiencing the present moment and being heard we can remove the overwhelming stressful, mental blocks in order to experience our best life possible. I can assist in helping to improve your healthy ability to cope with life stressors. I am truly, dedicated and honored to collaboratively assist in enhancing your life. In my free time I enjoy dancing, traveling, laughing, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Dr. Michelle Bailey is an incredible therapist brightens your day with the first hello. I incredible luck with her being my first therapist. She goes step my step on what goals you may have and how you are doing with them week by week. She makes you think and lets you know why you may be feeling a certain way. Overall an amazing person that I can’t wait to continue doing sessions with in the future!

Dr. Bailey has helped me get my life on track! She gets me to understand my issues in a way that no one else has and works with me to strategize how to be the best version of myself. I came here when I was in a very bad place and Dr. Bailey has helped me get back to the old me that was happy and had sense lol. She is amazing!

Dr. Bailey is the most thorough, professional therapist I have interacted with. From our sessions, I can tell she has a genuine concern for her clients. She is patient, understands how to guide the sessions, and calmly and empathetically responds to any story or issue I bring up. She also does a great job in translating any issue I bring up to action-oriented goals that can bring me closer to who I aspire to be more of. I would highly recommend her!

I've just been working with her for a couple of weeks now, and I really like her! She has somehow listened to all of my tangled mess of concerns for myself and was able to unweave them and categorize them into goals I need to accomplish. I look forward to bettering myself with her support. :)
