Michelle Jimenez

(LMHC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I have 11 years of experience working with individuals and families as well as extensively working with adolescents. I have helped people with a wide range of concerns including posttraumatic stress disorder, childhood trauma’s, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, relationship and family issues, stage of life challenges, the pain of recovering after a divorce, decision-making, and problem-solving. Other related experience includes working with incarcerated youth who come from the hard streets of Miami. I have also helped many women and men by guiding them through the pain of divorce.

My counseling style is empathetic and interactive and is grounded in wellness of the whole person, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Reality based therapy are my primary approach as I have worked with individuals, groups, and families. While helping people develop tools and skills to empower them and help them achieve their goals, I support people through their process and share their journey. Empathy, compassion, trust, and respect are most important to me and my role as a therapist.

All human beings have emotions. Emotions like sadness, anger, confusion, fear, guilt. Some emotions are hard to understand sometimes when we are going through different seasons of our life. Taking the first step and realizing you may need to talk to a therapist, to guide you through these challenging times, is a positive choice in the right direction. I am here to provide a safe, and supportive place for you to become healthier and more aware of how to handle your current issues.

Talking to Michelle feels like talking to a long lost friend. I couldn't have asked for a greater person to talk to. She checks in on me all the time and truly cares. She has got to be one of the greatest blessings of my life. In the short time we have talked, I have become so much closer to being back to the normal me than I ever thought possible.
