Dr. Michelle Scoggins

You continue to feel overwhelmed, question your place in the world, and struggle to catch a break from your hectic schedule. Though, society keeps putting more stress on you, it is difficult to ask for help or demand time for yourself.

Don’t let those negative self-defeating thoughts rule your life any longer. Today you can make the choice to find a way to balance your life no matter how impossible it feel.

Why am I here?

I became a therapist because I have struggled with life demands and the fear of asking for help. I recognize that self-defeating thoughts such as being a  failure can overpower your mind when you feel that you cannot fulfill the demands of others.  These feelings have the power to create anxiety, depression and other symptoms that are paralyzing but very treatable. I know that being able to restructure your thoughts and set appropriate boundaries on others will free you from the feeling of failure and alleviate mood symptoms.

I am passionate about treating women as too frequently we are overlooked, over needed by others but under appreciated. Women by virtue of society has been guilted for being beautiful beings, sexualized, and not taken serious in business. However, I am here to empower women to reach their goals and dreams despite societal prejudices. I am also here to support women as they experience these unfortunate experiences and to help you work through those situations.

I am confident that you can achieve your dreams and free yourself from anxiety, depression and self-defeating thoughts that currently keep you awake at night.

I know how tough it is to admit that you need help and that you are not perfect. This is particularly difficult for highly motivated and successful women as often times there is a perfectionism syndrome that prevent people from seeking help even when they recognize the need. Also, working women are typically pulled between caring for the family and maintaining a successful career without the appropriate support from their environments. Though, without the appropriate down time and self-care one can begin to loose their effectiveness and ability to hold it all together. I will help you learn balance and how to care for yourself so that you are more available for those important people in your lives.


Finding The Right Match

Getting into therapy is a difficult enough task but adding to the confusion and emotional distress comes the cost and insurance coverage in order to seek treatment. You will find that today many therapists do not work in-network with insurance companies as the goal is to provide the best treatment. So when looking for a therapist be mindful that you will be working with this person exploring intimate areas of your life so finding the right fit is more important than who is in-network or how much will I pay. Think of therapy as an investment to your wellbeing and self-improvement. When truly invested in therapy you can learn so much about yourself, your behaviors/patterns and how to find happiness from within. As a society we are often taught that materialistic things bring us happiness where we begin to forget that happiness is all about us. So finding that perfect match that helps you find your balance, happiness, self-esteem, self-worth and much more is priceless.
