Michelle Emode


About me

I am a licensed Mental health counselor and a Master CASAC and my treatment modality and approach are; cognitive behavioral therapy, Solution-focused therapy motivational interviewing, and person-centered approach to treatment. I believe that we all have the strength and ability to do well, we all need a little help sometimes.
My passion and experience have been with individuals struggling with substance use disorder with ages ranging from 18 and above. For the past 6 years, I have been providing individual counseling as well as group counseling and my role has been to help my clients explore and become aware of the underlying issues behind the substance use which include a history of depression, anxiety, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties as well as difficulty handling life challenges.
From my years of experience, I have come to love my job and the feeling of joy when I see my clients succeed. When working with clients my first goal is to get to know them and build a therapeutic relationship so that they can be comfortable with me because the success of treatment depends on it.
