My Approach to Helping

Michelle Harrell is a Mental Health Counselor (MHC-LP) with a passion for helping clients create and maintain meaningful, healthy relationships with both themselves and others. ​

​Her practice has focused on children on the autism spectrum, people with eating and personality disorders, families with adolescent behavior problems, and couples with marriage issues, regardless of culture, orientation, gender, or identity.

Michelle uses a multitude of methods in therapy depending on her client's needs, including CBT, person centered therapy, feminist therapy, existentialism, and psychotherapy. ​

Her past work spans a variety of settings, from intensive outpatient treatment centers for eating and personality disorders to autism treatment centers. These experiences have taught Michelle how to work collaboratively with her clients to create goals that are realistic, direct, compassionate, and obtainable. ​

She received an Ed.M and M.A. in Mental Health Counseling from Teacher’s College, Columbia University.

More Info About My Practice

Douglas Psychotherapy was founded in 2005 out of a desire to create a different kind of private psychotherapy experience, one in which the most recent evidence based practices and more traditional psychodynamic psychotherapies go hand in hand while also offering innovative prevention resources that support wellness and thriving.

Our practitioners are an interdisciplinary multi-specialty suite of independent providers with locations on the upper east side and midtown.
