Therapist in Yonkers, New York Michelle Alston, LCSW

Michelle Alston, LCSW

My name is Michelle Alston, Clinical Social Worker/Psychotherapist. I treat adults ages 18-40 who are living with symptoms related to Depression, Anxiety and various Mood Disorders.

Members I have worked with come to treatments with challenging emotions and are seeking help managing day to day stressors. Some challenges may include life transitioning, trauma, stress management, work/life balance, parenting, relationship challenges, career changes, etc.

Some environments I have practiced in include hospital emergency departments, inpatient and outpatient mental health, mobile crisis services and congregate care. Also, I have experience in Mental Health leadership, which shapes my therapeutic practices by acknowledging barriers within the managed care system.

My approach to working with members is simple. You are the pilot, and I am the copilot. You are the expert on your life. My role is to assist you in navigating the plane to ensure that there is a safe and stable landing.

I am a strength-based, trauma-informed, caring, and compassionate therapist. I lead treatment with empathy and seek to fully understand my members by actively listening and providing feedback/insight. I assist with helping everyone make healthy life choices in an empowering way. I am relationship-based, collaborative and believe in consistent assessments and reviewing treatment goals.

The most used interventions in my practice include Psychoeducation, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (modified for individual therapy via Telehealth), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Life coaching, referrals, and resources as needed.
