Michael Thaden, LMFT
I believe we come to our most difficult passages in life at opportune times in order to grow toward our true capacity and purpose. I respect that my clients possess the seeds of awareness and expertise to find answers and solutions to their own problems. My role is to provide a compassionate perspective from outside to assist in working through difficult emotions, reactive defenses, or protective habits, and open attention back to fruitful areas. I am an advocate for personal development, collaborating in finding useful vantage points for expanding visibility, encouraging resolution, and resumption of the innate growth process.
Client empowerment is emphasized with a positive "Solution-Focused" approach, utilizing "talk therapy", and other modes of creative processing such as Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy. These modes seem especially helpful in developing Emotion Regulation, Insight, Self-esteem, Creativity, and attention to Spirituality as important avenues for promoting healing/recovery.
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist, a Certified EMDR Therapist, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have worked intensively with adolescents and adults impacted by grief/loss, trauma, domestic violence, sexual abuse, chemical/co-dependency, anger/impulse control problems, and life role transitions. Evening and weekend appointments available.
