Michelle Britton, LCPC

Pronouns: they, them, theirs

In my practice, I affirm all genders and partnerships. I am sex-positive and acknowledge the impact of marginalization on people and communities. I provide a warm grounded environment to help you explore your unique experiences and identities with self-compassion and curiosity, even if what you are feeling is overwhelming or hard to talk about.

Having experience working with individuals and partnerships of all orientations, I can assist you through relationship hurdles, communication of needs and boundaries, trauma, depression, anxiety, and impulse control issues.

Individuals and partnerships are dynamic; you may have received messages from people in the world that have you questioning parts of yourself. Integrating authentic, complex parts of yourself can help you feel more fully yourself and move you towards meaning and vitality.

Successful therapy depends on a trusting and open therapeutic relationship between client and counselor. My approach centers your unique understanding of self and incorporates mindfulness, psychodynamic therapy, and intersectional feminist theory. I enjoy connecting deeply with people at all stages of healing, whether this is your first time seeking therapy or you are returning to explore your next stage of growth. I look forward to meeting you and joining you on your journey.
