Michele Frances Purvin, LCSW, LCDC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in San Marcos
I will help to empower you to overcome your personal obstacles with a compassionate, empathetic, and respectful approach. My practice philosophy is rooted in the therapeutic relationship, where you can find a safe and open place to share, engage, build self-awareness and work together to change behavior, thoughts and beliefs. I am an active therapist; combining experience, education, creativity and sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to counseling.
Rather than adopting only one methodology for all individuals and issues, I draw from a variety of methods that are most effective for each individual and situation. I am experienced with a variety of mental health issues and will cooperatively assist you in clarifying your goals for treatment.
I have successfully worked with over hundreds of children, teens and adults since 2006 using clinically tested and evidenced-based interventions. My office is conveniently located on the historic San Marcos square. My office hours are Monday through Friday, by appointment only. I look forward to meeting you!
