GET TO KNOW
Michael Lemon, M.S.
I help adults who feel anxious, depressed, and uncertain about the future. I work from a strengths-based perspective and believe that knowing and utilizing your strengths can lead to a more positive future. I see therapy as a collaborative experience because I believe you are the expert on yourself.
I believe acting as an advocate for change is just as important as working to serve the community as a therapist, especially in a time where social justice seems to have been put on America’s backburner.
I have received graduate degrees in both counseling and clinical psychology, meaning that I have been trained to see psychology from different perspectives through my education and clinical experiences.
Over the past 4 years, I have primarily served in the Louisville and Richmond areas of Kentucky and am excited to see how I can serve the city of Lexington!
My approach in working with clients is to help you use your strengths and resources to collaboratively set goals, solve problems, and work to achieve your goals. I focus on the present and future challenges, but it is also crucial to look into ways that you have been able to successfully solve your problems in the past. Rather than focusing on problems, I like to focus on how your unique abilities and areas of strength can bring you to solutions.
In addition to your strengths and abilities, I also believe that it’s important to consider your cultural identities and how they shape the way you view the world and your place in it. You have unique experiences that have brought you to where you are today, and I aim to fully understand what makes you unique. The more we understand each other, the better we can work together to help you achieve a fulfilling life.
Michael is an intern therapist and works under the supervision of Dr. Pascale Hague.
