Michelle Hoffman, MA, LMFT

Life is a journey and I would be honored to be a part of yours.  You are the expert on your life, your child’s life and your relationships.

I am here to work with you.  I will help guide you to discover tools which can help you enjoy life’s happiest moments or cope with the times when life has gotten you down.

When life is difficult, know that you are not alone. I am known for my genuine, caring, and warm approach where I provide a safe space for you to be heard and understood. I believe that when we are given a safe space to be fully heard, we can begin to explore ourselves and our relationships without judgement.

I am strengths based in my approach and work to create positive thinking patterns. I integrate talk therapy, play therapy, mindfulness, yoga calm and art. However, I want to know what works for you. If something is not working for you, we will work together collaboratively to find an approach that works best.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who began practicing in the field in 2013. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, couples and groups of individuals with a variety of struggles and life experiences. I have extensive experience working with children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families, as well as individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma and life transitions.

I look forward to meeting you and starting our journey together.
