Ryan Michelsen, Intern

Asking for help can be difficult, but it’s also brave. I know it can be hard to reach out to a stranger to work through life’s challenges. However, with a warm and genuine approach, I strive to support you as you identify and process your goals in therapy. I believe therapy is a unique experience where you can explore yourself and do this in a safe and nonjudgmental space.


My approach to therapy is empathetic, collaborative, and supportive. I want you to feel comfortable to use the space we create together to discuss your needs and goals. I value helping you to develop your own insights, to process your emotions, and to use your power to make changes that work for you. I also have clinical interests in depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ concerns, family of origin difficulties, suicide prevention, and trauma.


I hold degrees from Michigan State University and Indiana University. I am also currently pursuing a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at DePaul University. In my free time, I enjoy running, doing yoga, exploring Chicago, and spending time with friends.
