My name is Michelle Alden and I am a bilingual counselor in the Valdosta area in private practice. I have worked in community agencies and clinics since 2003 doing biopsychosocial assessments, conducting individual, group and family counseling. I have experience in treatment planning, and conducting groups in Anger management, Emotional Intelligence and parenting. I volunteered in the Guardian Ad Litem program in Florida and worked with the Redlands Migrant Association in Quincy, Florida.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Florida State University and minored in Child Development. I attended and graduated from Thomas University with my Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling and am anticipated to graduate with my PhD in Psychology in 2019. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and have my national certification from the board (NCC). I am an Anger Management Specialist and provide court ordered classes in individual and group formats.
Communication is the core of the relationship and everything else follows. Trust, respect, objectivity, openness all comes from communication. Resistant behavior, unethical decisions, disrespect and lack of trust are bases for unprofessional and unhealthy relationships destined to fail. "My passion is in helping empower families to change maladaptive thoughts and behaviors in order to prevent negative patterns from continuing from generation to generation". "My listening skills, genuineness, and skills I have learned all attribute to my success". "The modification, the smile in others is my reward".
