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!

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+++++++
