Professional statement

Michelle Lopez is a licensed clinical social worker in Florida specializing in sex therapy, grief, trauma, anxiety, and depression. She firmly believes the human connection is what heals relationships between people. People shouldn't be in therapy for the rest of their lives, but during the time you spend with Michelle, she will help you to love and trust again and no longer dread the day ahead.

She provides free consultations on her website, so reaching out will only cost a few minutes of your time. All consultations are confidential, except for the presence of immediate danger to yourself or someone else.

Even though Michelle is a therapist, she wants to get to know you as your friends and family do. She wants to know your story and empower you to own and change the story. Eventually, she wants to help you become your own therapist.

Michelle describes herself as an eclectic therapist. To say that she uses any particular treatment methods implies that she knows what will work for someone before knowing them. 

However, there are three treatment approaches that she generally gravitates toward, including Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. 

She can apply these approaches through a trauma-informed perspective and has had plenty of positive feedback in the past. She always discusses what process she feels may be appropriate with her clients as she considers your work together 100% collaborative.

Michelle's areas of expertise are sex therapy, anxiety, depression, and trauma. In sex therapy, she works with individuals and couples who may be looking to address compatibility issues, painful sex, inability to ejaculate, or out-of-control sexual behavior. She also works to address intimacy issues, navigate consensual non-monogamy, and heal from infidelity.
