Renee Michaels Ph.D, PhD, LCSW, CAP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Clearwater
Is anxiety or depression keeping you from living a full life? Have you been to traditional therapists and not had much long-lasting success? I want to help you. I will teach you how your brain protects you in so-called scary situations and in so doing, can sabotage your success and abundance you want and deserve. Just imagine yourself being lead to a path of growth and change. I will go with you down the path, while lighting the way with tools and skills for you to meet your greatest success.
I specialize in therapy/coaching that identifies thoughts that lead to anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. We correct those thoughts using a well-researched and efficacious method.Together we will instill tools into your daily practice that will set you on a path of healing and wellness.
This path begins for you in a comfortable home-setting where there are NO mental health signs. We are anonymous and confidential. When you call, you will speak to me, not office staff. I look forward to helping you get the results you are looking for in your relationships and in life!
