Psychologist Chapel Hill N.C. – Dr. Sara Michelson
Anxiety Treatment Chapel Hill N.C.
CBT helps individuals address and treat anxiety, depression, relationship problems, etc. by teaching new skills and ways of coping. For example, someone with social anxiety may work to improve the skill of tolerating being in anxiety-inducing social situations.
I offer a professional and non-judgmental environment where I listen, ask questions, and strive to broaden our understanding of the underlying issues of distress and unhappiness. Through that understanding and enhanced level of insight, you will learn how to change patterns of thoughts and behaviors. I work with each individual in a way that best suits that person’s needs and enables them to lead a more fulfilling and satisfying life. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral, which means that we will consider patterns in how you think, feel, and behave, and how shifting any of these can help you better reach your goals.
I am a doctoral-level licensed psychologist in North Carolina; I have expertise in various evidence-based treatments for adults and am committed to providing scientifically validated interventions. I work with a diverse population, including trauma, insomnia, mood disorders, anxiety, and relationship problems. I take my work and clinical specializations seriously and continue to devote a considerable amount of time and effort to advance my training and professional development. For your convenience, my services are provided via telehealth.
