About Michele Walker, LCMHC
Michele knows that everyone needs help and someone to talk to some of the time. She believes that throughout life people encounter lessons that shape them and therefore, she works to help individuals, families, and couples transform these learning opportunities into an increased quality of life. Ms. Walker is passionate about helping people realize their potential, become their most authentic selves, and have healthy relationships. As a provider, she works with her patients to identify their wants, needs, challenges, and abilities in order to improve their everyday functioning, communication, and interactions. She utilizes patient-centered, strengths-based visioning and incorporates various therapeutic techniques and modalities including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, Trauma-informed therapy, and Psychodynamic therapy. Michele repeatedly sees people gain a better understanding of themselves through exploration and psychoeducation and, as a counselor, she helps her patients help themselves in their current situations. She says of her work, “My patients have what they need, I just help them access it.”

My therapist was able to relate to me and use examples from pop culture that I enjoy to better communicate her points. She also has given me great tools to work with to manage my symptoms. Mindpath has been a great resource for me.
