My Approach to Helping

Michelle Hong is a Mental Health Counselor who works with individuals to address various mental health challenges including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, relationship issues, work-related stress, and substance abuse. Furthermore, she believes in the importance of exploring intersectionalities of race, gender, sexuality and sexual orientation, culture, and identity.

Michelle’s approach is individualized for each client. She aims to provide a secure and nonjudgmental environment to foster a trusting therapeutic relationship with an emphasis on validation, acceptance, and unconditional positive regard. Her main purpose of therapy is to help clients cope with psychological and emotional difficulties that underlie maladaptive behavior patterns, themes, and relapse, maintain stability in their lives, foster a nuanced understanding of oneself, and discovering that one can choose to think about and respond to life in less self-deprecating ways.

My theoretical orientation is a combination of psychodynamic, multicultural, feminist, and person-centered approach with appropriate techniques and interventions of CBT and mindfulness. I want to provide clients with empowering tools to become self-efficient in society, relationships, work, and life in general.

My previous work involved facilitating the group and individual counseling for substance abuse clients using a harm-reduction framework including CBT interventions, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. She has worked with clients to explore barriers of low mood and low self-esteem, negative thinking, interpersonal and professional difficulties, and dysfunctional patterns.

Michelle received an edM and MA in Mental Health counseling from Teacher’s College, Columbia University.
