Psychotherapy 

Micaela Van Dine, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 

Like so many others, I know the pain and confusion of growing up in a highly dysfunctional, drug addicted, and mentally ill family. The trauma that a child experiences from constantly being “on guard” leaves a huge scar. My own therapist helped me feel worthy of self love and self-compassion and my wish is to impart that gift to others. I love the quote by Hannah Brencher, “The best gift you are ever going to give some – is the permission to feel safe in their own skin. To feel worthy. To feel like they are enough. ”  I want to support those going through painful changes and help them feel safe, worthy, and loved.


No single approach is the right one for every client. Therefore, I am very adept at finding the right approach depending on the presenting issues as well as the personality of my clients. I offer Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for many clients. However, I also utilize Narrative Therapy for work with trauma victims, play therapy with children, and experiential therapy for some clients. When working with couples, I prefer the Gottman Method and Strategic Therapy. I incorporate spiritual concepts and artistic expression for those who align with those therapeutic approaches.
