Michelle Chasen, B.S.

Being able to walk alongside individuals as they make self-discoveries, heal, and grow is one of my greatest passions. I say “walk alongside” because I believe therapy is a collaborative process where you feel safe, understood, and our shared insights light the way. It is my belief that in knowing ourselves, our wants and needs, we are able to make choices that enhance, enlighten, and empower our lives.

I am currently a graduate student attending Northwestern University completing a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in psychology from Drexel University with a special emphasis on clinical psychology.

My interests include working with a population of culturally diverse individuals including children, adolescents, and adults. My clinical interests include working with those who are facing challenging times due to anxiety, depression, attachment wounds, trauma, and relational issues. My theoretical interest is grounded in psychodynamic psychotherapy, trauma-informed care, as well as utilizing an integrative holistic approach to emotional health and wellbeing.

I am a native of South Florida and have made Chapel Hill, North Carolina my home. I enjoy the change of seasons, and, in my free time, I like exploring on nature trails, cycling, and yoga. I am also an avid reader, and I adore animals. I love spending time with my husband, our son, and our little dog Cowboy.

I welcome the opportunity of providing you with an empathetic, non-judgmental, and supportive environment to assist in gently moving you forward towards the life you envision, with passion and commitment. I look forward to working with you on your journey to experiencing a greater and more fulfilling life.

Our purpose is to help you find your purpose through health, growth, and leadership.
