Michele Kenney, MS, CMHC
Our society runs at such a fast pace that we have lost the ability to relationally connect in an effective way. When we learn to slow down and quiet ourselves, we are able to find healing connection with others as well as inner healing. Quiet connection to self helps us find peace where there is turmoil, find direction where we are lacking, and connect with the people we love on a deeper level.
The direction I take with therapy truly is by focusing on relationship, not just relationship within the family, though it may include that, but I like to expand to relationship with self, and with spirituality when it’s appropriate. I also like to help by reframing personal perspective so that a new relationship with your story can begin.
My focus work is with marriage and family, relationship repair, trauma, anxiety, and healing from domestic violence or other abusive situations. I use concepts from mindfulness, family systems, and neuropsychology in order to help my clients build self-awareness and insight into their situations. When appropriate, I also use Biblical truth as a foundation in session. I believe that we are all on a life journey and we all need help along the way; I am here to be a support on that journey.
