About Me

Have you found that sometimes the world around you just doesn’t make sense anymore? Are you experiencing problems in your relationships, difficulty regulating your emotions, the effects of past or present trauma? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, disconnected, stuck, unable to move forward? Do you want to discover the true, authentic you? If this sounds familiar, I want you to know you’re not alone and there is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Therapy is a collaborative journey; after all, there is no better expert on you than you! My purpose and passion is to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your experiences while providing you the tools to improve your well-being. I am a firm believer that the true therapeutic process happens every day outside of therapy, where you do the work using those tools, building skills, and applying what you’ve learned to your daily life.
‘Therapist’ is just one of many roles in my life. I am also a mother, partner, friend, life-long learner, and client. I work with adolescents and adults, individually or as a couple/family. My approach is holistic and utilizes various techniques including CBT, DBT, Schema Therapy, Solution-Focused, and positive psychology to help you achieve your goals in all 8 dimensions of wellness…
I welcome you to Embrace Wellness and look forward to walking the path to well-being by your side!

Written by N.I. on Jun 11, 2022 after therapy with Mikaela for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Mikaela is absolutely amazing as t understanding my issues but not making them a 'problem' so much as something that needs to be addressed. I trust her and I have from the first.

Written by B.A. on May 24, 2022 after therapy with Mikaela for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Mikaela is an absolute gem. She is kind, non-judgemental, and easy to talk to and I have found it extremely easy to be open and honest with her. At the same time she also challenges me to be consistent in my progress and helps me see and understand things in a much healthier light. So thankful I was matched with her here!

Mikaela is the best therapist I’ve ever had. It doesn’t feel like I’m talking to a wall, she actively listens and replies to everything I say. She responds to all of my messages based on how I’m feeling, and gives me exercises to help feel better when I’m down. Overall, this is the best therapy experience I’ve had and I can’t wait to keep going and see how much better I’m doing.

Written by A.S. on Oct 16, 2021 after therapy with Mikaela for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Mikaela and I connected so easily. You can tell she is very caring and empathetic. She is a great listener and asks questions to get you really thinking and understanding why you’re feeling a certain way. She also provided tools (book, etc.) outside of counseling. You can tell she is experienced

Written by T.O. on Sep 23, 2021 after therapy with Mikaela for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Mikaela is a very understanding, non judgemental therapist, that really takes the time to understand what you are going through. I contacted Mikaela during a rough couple of weeks where I really needed someone to listen to me and she did all of that and more!
I had doubts about BetterHelp and how effective online counseling would be but I’ve experienced the utmost professionalism and quality.
I feel as if every video chat I have with Mikaela leaves me feeling refreshed!

Insightful, helpful, and very easy to talk to!

Written by A.N. on Jun 04, 2021 after therapy with Mikaela for 2 months

I feel incredibly fortunate to have been assigned to Mikaela. We instantly clicked and she has a strong caring approach to our conversations. She is always suggesting new books and themes I otherwise couldn't find on my own. Being my first time in therapy, I was really nervous about getting someone stiff or unemotional and I would have a hard time opening up to someone I have never met, but with Mikaela it's like sitting down with an old friend I've known all my life and we talk about issues and find solutions to my issues. She shows care towards my thoughts and actions even when I can't. She's been a real driving force in my curtain areas on success in life. I can't thank her enough.

Mikaela is a fantastic therapist. She is intelligent and very easy to talk to. In the past I found therapy to be not very helpful but she has changed my mind. She’s fantastic

Mikaela Posekany is my counselor, and she is amazing. Very compassionate and hears everything you say, which in turn she will provide insight that I didn't think about. She is also the most kind / easy person to talk to I've ever met. Still in the process of my therapy but, even in these early stages I feel welcome and that my voice is being heard. She is definitely a GEM in this community. A+++++++
