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 is amazing!
Michelle is great! She's supportive and so very helpful.
Michelle Menke’s help to me as a therapist has been invaluable to me as I navigate the sad, unfair and challenging journey that is my divorce. I know she really listens to my scattered thoughts and always reminds me of what matters…ME! With her guidance I’ve learned to look deep within and trust myself.
I would recommend Michelle as a therapist to anyone seeking help with their mental health.
I love knowing I have someone willing to listen while being objective. Michelle has been wonderful to work with.
