Dawn Womack Michael, LCSW
Telehealth services available in Louisiana
I earned a B.S. and M.S.W. degree from Louisiana State University and have a state license to practice clinical social work (LCSW). I am in good standing with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners (LABSWE). I have completed all continuing education hours and continue to fulfill these requirements on a yearly basis. I have 5 years experience as a Special Needs Counselor in the Ascension Parish school system and 8 years in private practice. My office is located in Gonzales, Louisiana and I am licensed to practice Telehealth in Louisiana and Florida.
My approach to therapy with children is to provide a safe therapeutic environment in which thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely. I work with clients to identify harmful thought patterns and change them into helpful thoughts that ultimately produce healthy behaviors. I help clients to identify their strengths and empower them to discover solutions and new opportunities. I help families to establish healthy boundaries and restore power to its appropriate place.
