About Me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana since 2013. I have worked the last 13 years with children and adolescents ages 5-18 on a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, adjustment to life changes, grief/loss, school related issues, and general difficulties associated with growing up. My primary approaches include cognitive behavior therapy, reality based therapy, strengths based approach, solution focused therapy, and motivational interviewing.

Adolescence is a difficult time for everyone and I believe counseling can truly help teens understand they are not alone and there is hope for feeling better. I believe that knowledge is power with adolescents and strive to help them understand themselves so they can learn to control their thoughts and behaviors. My approach creates a safe place for adolescents to share their struggles and find strategies they can implement to positively alter their present and future.

I look forward to helping the skill set of your adolescent grow!

Written by I.R. on Jul 21, 2022 after therapy with Michele for 4 months

My daughter and I had a very positive experience with Michele Whaley. My teen became less anxious about school, her grades improved. She was able to have a talk with the teacher she was so stressed out about all school year. She became more relaxed and positive about her future.
