“What does it mean to be human?” It’s not the kind of question that we hear every day, is it? When we FEEL happiness, sadness, anger, and fear we are HUMAN. The ability to EXPERIENCE happiness, sadness, anger, and fear is to BE human. We are all biologically and culturally designed to be this way. These four emotions are OKAY and they are GOOD. Difficulties, however, can arise when any one emotion begins to change the manner in which we perceive and experience the world around us, significantly affecting our quality of life. This is where individual and/or group psychotherapy can help.
Welcome. My name is Dana Carmichael. I am a psychotherapist with 9 years experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. I entered this profession from the field of molecular and developmental neuroscience. I utilize my background to inform clients how psychiatric disorders effect their mental health and well-being.
It is my most sincere belief that there is no inherent magic in psychotherapy. Rather, it is a conversation between two people based upon sincerity and respect. I welcome people of all ages, races, ethnicities, and sexual-orientations. I look forward to getting to know and working with each of you.
