Michelle Magno, MHC-LP
Michelle grew up in a colorful family of immigrants from both Latin America and Western Europe. After procuring a B.A. in psychology from Vanderbilt University, she returned to the tri-state area to obtain her M.A. and Ed.S. in counseling. Michelle’s commitment to reducing the stigma associated with mental illness and help-seeking, landed her a position on a research team and outreach initiative.
Michelle’s love for travel compelled her to live, study, and work abroad in both Italy and Spain. When she is not exploring other regions of the world, she enjoys reading, running, and yoga. Michelle speaks Italian and Spanish.
The core of Michelle’s practice focuses on building effective communication and learning how to navigate interpersonal relationships. Michelle believes our quality of life is greatly enhanced when relationships are fulfilling and ruptures are mindfully repaired.
Influenced by the connection between physical health and psychological wellbeing, Michelle incorporates mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help clients cope with stress and reduce the physical symptoms that can result from emotional distress. In an effort to set concrete goals and monitor progress, Michelle employs CBT, DBT, and solution-focused techniques in her practice.
