Be HeardCounseling for adults with mental illness

Responsive Counseling LLC is a specialized therapy practice founded by Michelle Maloney, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Clinical Telemental Health provider. It is focused on providing individual therapy for adults and older adults living with anxiety, depression or serious mental illness (SMI). Family members, caregivers and other loved ones are welcome as well! Your voice and your life experiences are valid and matter. I will work with you to address your unique needs such as learning more about your mental health condition, finding healthy coping skills, reducing or eliminating stressors, relapse prevention skills, life skills coaching and much more. The mission here at Responsive Counseling is to help you navigate life’s ups and downs so you will be able to do it on your own more effectively.

It’s not easy to learn new skills, change old habits or reframe negative thoughts. However, I truly believe the effort is worth it and that it is possible to reduce, manage or eliminate your symptoms. If you’ve been hospitalized, hearing voices for 20+ years or been dealing with the mental health system this can be hard to believe, but it is possible to grow your level of hope and happiness in life. Everyone has their own vision of what recovery means to them (ie: getting/holding a job, being more independent, being able to do things they enjoy again, going back to school, etc). We can work together to figure out what recovery from mental illness means to you.

New clients are being accepted and must be residents of Florida. Tele-therapy is provided through telephone or a secure HIPAA-compliant video program. A free 15 minute phone call with Michelle can be scheduled to start exploring whether therapy can meet your needs; this brief phone call is not therapy and will not be used in place of a therapy session, and it does not constitute a therapeutic relationship between an individual and Michelle. A person will not be considered a client of Responsive Counseling until they have completed an initial intake appointment which is about 75-90 minutes long.
