MICHEL BORDEAU, MA, LCSW
Personal success requires balanced health, support from loved ones, and a readiness to foster change in one's life. Sometimes it also requires an ego-boosting conversation or two or three with a therapist or a life coach.
Michel Bordeau, MA, LCSW, has over 20 years of combined experience in psychotherapy, career and academic coaching, academic counseling, and college teaching. Michel specializes in Neuro-Exceptionalism (Autism, ADHD, GAD), Bipolar Disorder II, Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome, and aging adult mental health.
The focus of his therapies is on self-advocacy, recovery, and remission, using the change and adaptability driven modalities such as DBT, CBT, TF-CBT, Logotherapy, and Family System Therapy. He helps clients tap into their emotional, interpersonal, and executive functioning skills to bounce back from stressful health, family, or work challenges.
Overall, Michel's therapeutic approach is ego-friendly, i.e., focused on assertiveness, healthy emotional boundaries, and purposeful self-meaning. He is an energetic practitioner whose socratic approach is intended for clients who are ready to turn small steps into giant personal strides. He offers services in French and English.
