Michelle Moore, PLPC
With a gentle and warm approach, I help you identify and work with your thoughts, emotions, and sensations. I meet you wherever you’re at in your life, and provide a safe, therapeutic environment for health, healing, and recovery.
I specialize in trauma, grief and loss. My treatment approach with clients is unique and collaborative, blending in elements from different techniques and tailoring treatment according to each individual’s needs. I use principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to help bring relief and healing to your current situation. I also often incorporate mindfulness-based approaches into treatment. In addition, I encourage my clients to connect with their bodies (through mindfulness, yoga, exercise, etc.).
This is my second and final act. I bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to my practice. I had a desire to be a therapist for over 10 years, while working in a corporate position. I could no longer run from my inner voice and started graduate school in 2012. During graduate school, I worked full-time, cared for my sick and dying mother and sister. Both died within eleven months. It was a difficult journey, but I never gave up on my dream to help others as a therapist. I finally achieved my dream in 2015 and earned my Master Degree in Counseling from Lindenwood University.
I believe the relationship between therapist and client is the most powerful component to healing. Without the client-therapist relationship and trust, no healing happens. I believe that change can be a challenging, yet beautiful process.
