MICHELLE PONTELL, L.C.S.W.
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
If you're committed to making positive changes in your life, I have the skills to quickly assess any relevant issues, help you clarify your goals & dreams, and show you how you can step into a life that brings you more joy, success, peace and ease.
In addition to being a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I am trained in multiple modalities including EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Nutritional and Integrative Medicine, and Play Therapy. During sessions, being able to seamlessly flow from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral "talk" Therapy) into other targeted modalities, allows my clients to release stress, anxiety, past trauma and overwhelm quickly and effectively,. Most people find they are moving forward with their lives and achieving personal goals within a few sessions.
