Michelle Strafelda, MA

Day Treatment Psychotherapist
Michelle works from a person-centered approach primarily, as she believes it is of utmost importance to establish a safe, nonjudgmental relationship with clients before beginning to approach more serious issues with them. She also draws upon elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused therapy to help her clients add skills to help them deal with symptoms and just day-to-day problems. She recently completed an EMDR (eye movement and desensitization and reprocessing) training that will help her in treating clients who have undergone traumatic events. She believes clients are able to change when they are an active part of their recovery and are given tools to help themselves heal. Michelle is proficient in Spanish and hopes to continue growing her competence in this area so she can help Spanish-speakers receive services. She is always trying to challenge herself to grow her multicultural knowledge to as to be better able to meet her clients’ needs.
