Michelle Perlongo MHC
As a Mental Health Counselor, I am committed to exploring an open, collaborative and therapeutic process; aiming towards an overall state of wellness. I utilize a humanistic approach; accenting mindfulness, cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral techniques and skill set.
I believe that no two people are the same, therefore, clinical treatment is specifically tailored to the client’s specific and personal need. My therapeutic goal is to assist clients in developing healthy interpersonal skills, increase of mood, implementing positive coping strategies, and achieve a sense of purpose within their life.
My clinical experience has been working closely with children, adolescents, families, and adults. Specifically; within areas of eating/food concerns, substance abuse, grief/loss, trauma, interpersonal conflict. My tools for treatment utilize creative art, supportive therapy, Solution Focused, and Internal Family Systems.
