Michelle L. King


10 years of experience

I am a Positive Psychology Clinical Social Worker and an Addiction specialist based in Georgia. Many of my clients come in to address depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, relationships, and/or to figure life out, personal values, and desired directions to go in life. I am particularly passionate about serving clients that feel they are alone in figuring out this world. I received my MSW from the University of Georgia (UGA): I am a DAWG :). I have provided services for individuals with substance use disorders and other common disorders, such as trauma, family relations, depression, anxiety, learning emotions, and Grief. I am passionate about the world being a kinder place, I strive to ensure every person I encounter leaves being/feeling better than before.

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

In sessions, I focus on understanding and paying attention to you. My approach supports you to leave sessions with a better understanding of yourself, have a plan, feel more relaxed, and be more able to move forward. I am non-judgmental, engaging, warm, and caring. I will laugh with you, cry with you, and give you a safe space to process and dream. I desire to establish a strong therapeutical relationship where you will feel safe, seen, and heard. I want every client to know they are worthy to be cared for on a deeply personal level.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize Solution Focused, Mindfulness, MBCT, Positive Therapy, CBT, DBT, and Person-centered treatment from a positive psychology framework. Treatment is informed, gentle, warm, and personable. In the session, we will focus on safety and the therapeutic relationship. We may train on breathing exercises and grounding skills. We may explore non-verbal through creative expression such as writing, painting, coloring, etc.... We may have a long discussion with pondering questions. Whatever we do, my approach supports clients to leave sessions with a better understanding of themselves and their situations.

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

I am most passionate and excited when working with adults that have reached a point in their lives where searching for answers is desired. Finding the answers to questions such as: "Why am I always (angry, sad, lonely)?", "How do I do this life with a degree of happiness?"
