Professional statement

Dr. Juna Michel is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Taunton, MA. Dr. Michel supports teenagers, young adults, and adults through both individual and couples therapy. Her clients are stressed out, anxious, or depressed. They struggle with low self-esteem, which can lead to codependency or other relationship challenges. They might be going through major life transitions such as changes in their careers or grieving the loss of a loved one.



Dr. Michel’s approach to therapy begins with establishing her sessions are safe spaces to process through uncomfortable feelings. Clients are welcome to speak about what’s on their minds or about distressing experiences, receiving validation from Dr. Michel. Clients learn skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including how to avoid cognitive distortions that can lead to harmful self-criticism or negative self-talk. Dr. Michel helps clients reach their wellbeing goals, celebrating their progress along the way.
