What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During initial sessions, we talk more about the issues at hand and collaborate to create a plan in a way that helps you get to where you want to be in life.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Michelle is compassion-focused and provides a non-judgmental safe space where therapy is paced based on her client's needs.

About Michelle Glenn, LCSW-C, CCTP-II



My treatment methods


I use EMDR to create new neuropathways in the brain, allowing information that might have gotten stuck the opportunity to begin to move forward. You will remember the material/memories but they won't be as disturbing. Our sessions will focus on targeting these memories; and in addition, talk therapy in between sessions to process progress and other urgent life issues as they emerge.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

DBT is a skills based treatment where the end goal is to modify behavior you believe is problematic in your life; I'd do this by applying a combination of validation and problem-solving.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I use CBT to help clients recognize how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other then on using that knowledge to interrupt negative patterns with coping skills, techniques, and strategies to achieve your goals.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Are you looking back in the past at decisions you cannot change? Are you anxiously awaiting a future event, which may or may not happen? Mindfulness is an intentional practice which focuses on all that we have at any given point in time: the present. You’ll learn strategies that help you increase focus and concentration and reduce looking back or looking forward; that help you feel centered, grounded, calmed, and relaxed. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction can be combined with any other methods of treatment I use or as a standalone practice.
