Michele Meinhardt, LSCSW
Are you seeking healing, but unsure how to get there? It may be hard to imagine what it would feel like to experience freedom from overwhelming anxiety, sadness, grief, PTSD, emotional eating, or disordered eating. You may feel hopeless, like you’ve “tried it all” and nothing has worked. I see your frustration and honor it. The fact that you are reading this page right now shows that you want things to be different. It takes both steadfastness and vulnerability to seek healing, neither of which are for the faint of heart. I believe we are all built for a life of wholeness, authenticity, and courage.
I use a compassionate approach to encourage curiosity towards emotions and behaviors. I have specialized training with disordered eating and use an intuitive eating and weight neutral approach. I am also trained in EMDR–which is effective in trauma resolution–and have specialized training with first responders including EMS, fire, police, and dispatch. As a former police/fire/EMS/911 dispatcher myself, I understand the unique culture and challenges of working as a first responder.
In her free time, Michele enjoys walking or hiking in nature, reading mystery novels, and playing board games with her friends and family.
