My Expert Service
My name is Michelle Filippi-Robb.
I have worked in the mental health field for 10 years. I've been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor since June 2008. I began my career working with children and families to help parents learn new techniques and skills that would allow them to experience better results with their children and helping children understand that choices and actions have natural consequences. I later worked with individuals with severe, persistent mental illness to help them find and develop successful tools and methods that would allow them to maintain independent living. I have extensive experience providing crisis counseling, and have worked with many veterans coping with trauma, loss, and PTSD. The most important predictor of success in counseling is a positive therapeutic relationship. Finding a counselor you feel comfortable with can be a frustrating experience. Contact me for free to find out if I would be a good fit for your therapy needs. What if you could feel better today? Give me a chance to help and you won't be disappointed. My specialties include relationship counseling including GLBT relationships, self esteem issues, post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, mood disorders, grief and loss.
Experience & Qualifications
For the past ten years, I have worked with adults, children and families to provide unconditional positive regard, genuine care and concern, crisis intervention, relaxation techniques, coping skills, and interpersonal relationship skill building techniques. I have a proven record of building strong, positive therapeutic relationships. I studied social work and women's issues as an undergraduate, focusing my attention on the specific needs and concerns of women, maladaptive relationships and societal pressures. I finished my master's program Cum Laude, demonstrating academic excellence in the classroom and superb clinical skill and judgment in the field.
