About Me

Hey! My name is Michelle Menke. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with ability to supervise colleagues (LISW-S). I have been a practicing therapist for for the past 10+ years. I have seen a wide variety of patients while in different settings over the years. I started my career doing in home case management and therapy for children and their families. I worked with families to form plans to best manage their child's behavior, mental illness or trauma. I stopped doing in home care and eventually I started doing emergency room psychiatric evaluations in adult emergency room. While working in the emergency room I saw patient's for many different reasons, but my patient's were often at their very lowest moments. I would see patients suffering from depression, anxiety, substance abuse disorders, trauma responses, suicidal ideation and so on. After about six years, I then started working at a children's hospital, still in the emergency room doing psychiatric evaluations. I saw patients and families who were in crisis. I have been doing crisis work for a long time and often see patient's when they are at their low. I am excited to the opportunity to help patient's from their state of crisis through their healing!

Michelle has been incredibly helpful to me as I work my way through one of the most challenging times of my life. She’s patient, knowledgeable and always ‘real’ with me. Thank you Michelle!
