Professional statement

Michaela is a Mental Health Counselor providing therapy for adolescents, adults, and couples.

She holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology, with a concentration in Medical Sociology. Her educational path has given her a comprehensive understanding of humanity and mental health at both the micro and macro-levels. She completed her clinical training at a community mental health clinic where she provided weekly psychotherapy to a diverse clientele. She is especially passionate about self-esteem and the healing of sexual and emotional trauma.

Michaela takes an integrative approach to therapy with an emphasis on wellness, or holism, allowing her to meet each client’s distinct needs and expectations. She believes that each dimension of a person’s life plays a specific role in the journey to mental health, and she prioritizes a mindfulness-based understanding of how the mental, physical, and social spheres work in conjunction to contribute to a client's well-being. Michaela utilizes psychodynamic therapy to help clients navigate and understand the past, CBT to cope with symptoms and modify thoughts/behaviors in the present, and narrative therapy to develop identity and construct a positive future. She supplements her approach with positive psychology to promote empowerment and understanding of how to use specific skills and abilities to overcome current symptoms, and to establish the confidence to take on hardships that the future may hold.

Michaela is experienced in working with individuals with PTSD, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, chronic stress, low self-esteem, and intimacy issues.


Message to clients

Have you been spending more time in your head lately? Are you finding yourself exhausted from uncontrollable worry or self-doubt? Maybe you've had this inexplicable nagging feeling for a while now that it's time to grow, to heal. You shouldn’t have to carry all of this on your own, which is why I cultivate a comforting and reenergizing space that allows me to hold these feelings for you so that you can distance yourself from the negativity, get out of your head, and return to the here and now.

You are uniquely powerful and dynamic, and I am dedicated to helping you see this for yourself. But first, we must work together to deconstruct and rewrite the stories you’ve been telling yourself that have allowed you to believe that you are anything less. I do so by utilizing a wellness, or holistic, approach to promote empowerment and understanding of how to use your strengths and innate abilities to overcome current symptoms and establish the confidence to take on hardships that the future may hold. I am so happy that you are here, ready to begin the journey to wellness and will be by your side with every step that you take.

Therapist's note

Michaela and the team at Insight & Action Therapy accept all major insurance plans out of network, and will do all billing on your behalf. They strive to create an in-network experience so you don't have to worry about submitting claims and waiting for reimbursement from your insurance plan. They will check your benefits and work with you to determine a fee structure.

After any deductible has been met, you will pay a copay and the team will take care of the rest. Because seeing a provider out of network can often be quite expensive, Insight & Action Therapy does their best to work within each clients' budgetary constraints so therapy is not a financial burden.
