Be Heard – counseling for adults with mental health or chronic conditions

Responsive Counseling is a specialized therapy practice providing individual therapy for adults and older adults living with mental health conditions, serious mental illness or chronic medical conditions. Michelle Maloney LCSW (founder of Responsive Counseling and clinical therapist) has primarily worked with adults and seniors living with chronic conditions, substance use, grief, trauma and/or behavioral health issues. I have experience in outpatient and inpatient mental health, substance use, oncology, and grief counseling. Additionally, I work with families, caregivers, adult children and other loved ones who have a person with mental health or medical conditions in their lives by providing a safe place to process their emotions, education, coping strategies, and preventing/reducing caregiver stress.

Perhaps you feel worried all the time, get angry easily, can’t eat or sleep, focus on worst case scenarios or don’t enjoy things you typically love to do. Been there, done that. I know how difficult it can be to imagine things can change for the better. However, it is possible to regain your sense of hope, purpose and happiness in life. Even if you’ve been struggling with long term symptoms such as hearing voices or chronic pain, been in and out of the system and feel like you’ve tried everything, therapy can still help you!

Many people can benefit from therapy regarding normal life issues (ie: work, relationships, decision making, problem solving) as well. My client centered, strengths-based counseling approach provides a non-judgmental place for clients of Responsive Counseling to increase their understanding of any mental health issues, learn healthy and effective coping skills, manage stress, identify realistic and relevant goals, improve problem solving and other life skills, raise their self esteem, reduce social isolation, and gain hope for the future. Furthermore, I can help with relapse prevention, conflict and anger management, and life skills (ie: communication, social skills, motivation).

It’s not easy to learn new skills, change old habits or reframe negative thoughts. However, I truly believe the effort is worth it and that it is possible to grow your level of hope, motivation and happiness in life. Everyone has their own vision of what that means to them. The mission here at Responsive Counseling is to help you navigate this journey and figure out practical steps to get you where you want to be.

Your voice and your life experiences are valid and matter.
