About Me

Hello, my name is Michelle Friedman and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of New York and Florida. I use a person-centered approach through the use of cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and mindfulness-based therapy. I have worked in community mental health, substance abuse treatment, and residential school environments as well as within the criminal justice and healthcare systems over the past ten years providing counseling services to adults, adolescents and children. I specialize in issues related to stress, self-esteem, depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, substance abuse and parenting challenges. I also have experience working with the foster care and adoption populations, relationship issues, family conflict, grief and loss, and anger management. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one that should foster respect, trust, honesty, communication, positive change and hope.
