Dr. Michele Balthrope


About Me

I am a PhD level therapist. In addition, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Georgia and New York. I have extensive experience working with couples/families. I understand that in many instances family work can require some soul searching and compromise for those seeking services and I want to offer support to help you achieve this objective. My goal is to help clients identify, define the relationship, and reconnect. I want you to experience an open and safe environment where issues, thoughts, and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. The process of rebuilding and reuniting can be a restorative process that you may have thought was impossible. As your therapist, my goal is to assist you in working through the challenges and issues that are occurring in your relationship.

I look forward to working with you!
