MEET MICHELLE

One of the most important factors in effective therapy is the fit between the client and therapist. Michelle is an open, human, highly skilled professional.  Let's get to know each other a little to see if what I offer and what you seek are a match.

MICHELLE CERMAK

MA, LPC

As a child, one counselor's dedication brought me out from the depths of unworthiness, anxiety, and sadness.  After this experience I knew that I wanted to help people overcome these same obstacles.  Founding Awakenings Therapy has brought me to my true mission to connect the mind, body and spirit back into wholeness in order to aid in truly healing individuals. 

I have been working with people overcome obstacles in their life for over 8 years now.  Through my own experience with talk therapy , meditation and yoga I learned that these tools help us to regulate our mood, let go of what no longer serves us, and to come back into wholeness.  Most importantly I teach others how to trust their thoughts and feelings, knowing that the mind, body, and spirit are one. 

The goal of the work we will do will  promote and develop a deeper understanding of empowerment in the concept of the “whole person” in an effort to achieve an integrated experience of self and connectedness with others.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

 I love spending time with my family and friends.  On the weekends you can find me gardening and enjoying the great outdoors .  I enjoy being apart of the yoga community and spending time taking or facilitating classes.
