Individual Therapy
Individual therapy can provide a safe and accepting environment to explore your inner thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Together with Michelle, you will uncover what obstacles are getting in the way of you experiencing more satisfying relationships with others. By deepening your self-awareness you will gain greater insight and understanding thus allowing you to make choices that better serve your needs and hopes.

Children, Tweens, Adolescents and Families
Childhood & adolescence are times of significant changes and transitions that can often put stress on the whole family. These ages are a time of self discovery and exploration as children grow and eventually learn to define themselves as separate from their parents. They can be periods of confusion, frustration, self-doubt, and insecurity for everyone in the family. Therapy for children, tweens, and teens can often provide an environment where they can process through their emotions and experiences, learn effective ways of communicating, and develop deeper self-understanding and problem-solving skills.

Relationship/Couples Therapy
One’s ability to develop and maintain meaningful relationships is often a primary source of satisfaction in life. When conflicts interfere with a couple’s ability to enjoy each other, couples therapy can often help. Conflicts can arise from external sources such as money and work stress, or they may be related to deeper internal patterns and ways of relating. Together with Michelle you will explore each partner’s thoughts, feelings, and goals in order to improve communication, reduce misunderstandings, and improve relational happiness.

Herman Hesse: “I can give you nothing that had not already its origins with in yourself.
I can throw open no picture gallery but your own. I can help to make your own world visible.
That is all.”

When you work with Michelle Post, LMFT, you can expect:

1. Humor when the time is right. Laughter is the best medicine. Client quotes:
“I’m so glad Michelle is normal” (nurse) or “Thanks for being cool!” (teen) or “her style is
humorous and informed” (workshop attendee) . Having a sense of humor about self and life,
brings some lightheartedness to the heartfelt work of psychotherapy.

2. Goals & Respect. A therapist is a guide who will walk with you on your journey, assisting
you in accomplishing your goals. Therapy goals are set together, and respect for your
journey is vital because ultimately you determine the outcome.

3. Customized services. Each client is different in personality, preferences, relationships
and goals. Michelle has over 13 years of experience working with children and teens 3 to 18,
young adults facing college and career choices, adults in mid-life or in their senior years,
and businesses. What works for 4, 18, or 72 year old clients or a small verses large
business is very different. Therefore, your services are customized based on your needs
and wants, your age and stage in life, your challenges and comfort level.

4. Professionalism, Integrity & Experience. Michelle’s credentials are available on the about Michelle page.

5. Confidentiality. Marriage and Family Therapists are bound by a legal and ethical code
not to release any of your information or the things you discuss with anyone else without
your written consent. Even the youngest of clients will reveal more and benefit more from
therapy when they know their privacy will be kept.




1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy = more effective and longer lasting results than medication

2. Art Therapy or Creative Techniques activate the same part of the brain on CT Scans that
is activated when the body is healing. These techniques begin to restore the mind-bod
connection and help heal.

3. Stress has been linked to numerous health problems: high blood pressure, heart disease,
back pain, ulcers, gastro-intestinal problems and more.

4. Presenteeism is when you or your staff go to work but are not truly engaged,
motivated, or cognitively present. It causes as much or more loss of profits and/or costly
mistakes as losses from absenteeism. Michelle's interventions build intrinsic motivation
and team-centered success.

5. Changes in family or work life such as entrances and exits (for example, marriages,
births, graduations, moving, job changes/reorganizations, divorces, deaths, etc.) are times
when individuals or businesses are in high stress.

Michelle's services can help you through challenges in your life or business
