Michaela Godsey

LMHC, CDP

Background

My ideal client would be someone who is open and willing to work on identifying opportunities for growth, as well as to explore where their naturally existing strengths are, and how they can employ those strengths in working to create a life that no longer needs escaping from. 

I pride myself on working with each individual to meet them wherever they are at in their own individual process. While it is important to have a specific approach in therapy, I firmly believe that the most important component is the therapeutic relationship and building a strong foundation for positive rapport. My goal is to work with individuals, to help clarify what it is they feel would be most helpful in improving their quality of life, or what challenges they have come across that prevent them from moving forward in the direction of their goals. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out, as I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your unique and individual situation. We can discuss what you hope to achieve through the therapeutic process to better determine if working together would be beneficial in helping you achieve these goals.
