Hello, I am Michelle Cruz
I'm a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with 5 years of providing person centered and person specific therapy counseling to clients in need.
I earned my Bachelors in my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of the Cumberlands and am currently pursuing my PhD in Integrative Medicine at Quantum University. I've worked in many different clinical settings ever since. I am a passionate and empathetic therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of interpersonal familial relationships. I have experience leading clients through trauma based therapy, EMDR, CBT and DBT. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome traumas, and barriers. I specialize in addressing life stressors, depression, PTSD, anxiety and panic. I am fully committed to listen and offer my best professional practices to help you.
I follow a person specific approach, which considers the entire person: Mind, Body, and Spirit. You can count on my empathetic and person-centered approach towards every conversation we take part on. Thank you for taking the first step and for allowing me to be part of this very important journey.
We are not defined by our past, for we can chose and decide the future that we want through dedication and practice.
Look forward to meeting you!
