Professional statement

Michelle Nachmani is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in NY. Michelle helps clients across a wide range of mental health conditions, life situations, and self-improvement goals. She enjoys working with individuals who would like to grow their mental health, including learning how to set healthy boundaries with others and to prioritize themselves and their own wellbeing. She works with clients who face anxiety, depression, relationship issues, overwhelming stress from work, illness/caretaking stress, grief, or parenting issues. She also supports couples as they work through conflict and grow closer bonds.

Michelle's approach is informed by relational psychoanalysis and integrates trauma- informed and behavioral approaches including DBT and CBT . She completed a four year post graduate training program in adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. She provides clients with a calm, compassionate space to talk about what’s on their mind, and then gives them the tools they need to take action in their lives. She encourages clients to reflect on themselves and their lives, with the goal of motivating them to make healthy changes. By understanding themselves better, clients develop a clearer picture of their roadblocks to happiness. When working with couples, Michelle teaches healthy communication skills. When appropriate, she helps clients find an amicable way of transitioning out of their relationship so that both parties feel understood, valued, and respected.

By offering an empathetic ear, Michelle helps clients work towards their mental health goals and improve their quality of life. When working with Michelle, clients gain a better understanding of who they are, how they got to be where they are now, and how they can reach a more fulfilling, comfortable place in their daily lives.
