About Michelle Dothager's service

Michelle Dothager is a seasoned therapist with over 15 years of experience in the field of behavioral health and addictions treatment. She has worked with children, adolescents, and adults, and understands that while we all share common threads and themes as humans, each person and family has their own unique story. Michelle respects these differences and tailors her approach to meet the individual needs and expectations of her clients. She believes that taking the step to consider therapy is a sign of progress and encourages her clients not to miss the opportunity to recognize this. Michelle understands that maintaining wellness can be complicated by various factors, such as personal history, biology, traumatic experiences, relationships, and losses. She helps her clients develop resilience, gain insight, and find relief. Michelle believes that although changes may be unpredictable, they are not always permanent and can be managed. She values all questions and encourages clients to reach out to her without hesitation.
