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.
