About Me

Hey! My name is Michelle Menke. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with ability to supervise colleagues (LISW-S). I have been a practicing therapist for for the past 10+ years. I have seen a wide variety of patients while in different settings over the years. I started my career doing in home case management and therapy for children and their families. I worked with families to form plans to best manage their child's behavior, mental illness or trauma. I stopped doing in home care and eventually I started doing emergency room psychiatric evaluations in adult emergency room. While working in the emergency room I saw patient's for many different reasons, but my patient's were often at their very lowest moments. I would see patients suffering from depression, anxiety, substance abuse disorders, trauma responses, suicidal ideation and so on. After about six years, I then started working at a children's hospital, still in the emergency room doing psychiatric evaluations. I saw patients and families who were in crisis. I have been doing crisis work for a long time and often see patient's when they are at their low. I am excited to the opportunity to help patient's from their state of crisis through their healing!

Michelle has been welcoming since the beginning. She has helped my fiancé & I to learn to communicate better and to be more understanding. She has helped my fiancé cope with his anger management and has helped me to be clear with my expectations and compromising. We both would recommend Michelle, we are so thankful for her !!
