Michelle Waide, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Shorewood
My name is Michelle Waide. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 35 years experience in private practice. My approach combines both a psychodynamic and somatic emphasis, depending on the client's needs and means. I offer short term symptom relief as well as longer term work to deal with more profound change.
Training in relational psychodynamic theory is like learning the music scales. Once the therapist has that foundation, she can improvise upon it. Emotional pain can sometimes be confusing. It may not fit the here and now situation of the client, but it usually belongs somewhere.
i engage with the emotional/somatic experiences sometimes through the use of EMDR or Mindfulness Meditation in a way that allows safe movement through the blockage allowing for self regulation of feelings that may have been overwhelming.
