Meet Michelle King

Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle King.

Michelle, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started my career as a teacher for the deaf, working as a nonprofit director and an educator for the deaf in public school settings. After years of working with families, I decided I wanted to become a therapist so I could delve more into the feelings associated with having a child with hearing loss. I realized I wanted to use my intuition and empathy to help others heal from their pain, learn about themselves, and become happy and free. I transitioned into working in the fields of addiction and trauma, with a specialty in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy. I now work with individuals and groups who are dealing with issues related to substance abuse, trauma, anxiety, and relational issues. I have never loved my life more than I do now, and it feels wonderful to be able to have a positive impact on the lives of others.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been an easy journey to become a therapist. Going back to school after many years of being out of the education world was a bit of a shock but turned out to be a welcome change. After graduating, it took nearly three years to gain the 3,000 hours of supervised experience in order to become eligible for a license. But the hard work has been worth it.

Michelle King Therapy – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I specialize in trauma, addiction, relationships, and mood disorders. I practice EMDR therapy, which is a brain-based therapy that is scientifically proven to be an effective treatment for trauma. I think there is more to therapy than just alleviating symptoms. I believe therapy can help you grow into the healthiest, happiest version of yourself if you let it. If you or anyone you know is struggling, please reach out!
