Get to Know Michele D. Briones MA, LCPC

As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) at Briones Counseling Services, Michele's goal is to provide a safe and inviting environment for individuals, couples, and families to work on changing dysfunctional patterns that interfere with relationships and general life satisfaction. Such patterns can be embedded in anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral issues, relationship issues, low self-esteem, parent/child relationships, and trauma. Michele enjoys helping people find happiness and success in their lives. She will meet you where you are emotionally and help you create the life you desire.

Michele's specialties are depression, anxiety, trauma, relational trauma, emotional intelligence, and relational intelligence. Relational intelligence explores the quality of our relationships which determines the quality of our lives. The same concepts can be applied to friendships or intimate relationships. Understand how you were loved and you will understand how you love others. It is related to attachment theory but for different reasons as in adult relationships versus a child's needs. On the intimate side of relational intelligence, you will understand much more of your intimate proclivities and explore ways to step into the fullness of who you are intimately with yourself and partner.

Michele's therapeutic approaches are client-centered, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), dialectical-behavioral (DBT), and psychodynamic. She is an EMDRIA Trained Psychotherapist through the EMDR Institute in California. Michele believes in a holistic approach to healing through the mind, body, and soul connection. Each person is unique with individual needs to be addressed; one size does not fit all.
