Michelle Hintz, PSY
New clients are often pleasantly surprised that I am easy to talk to, approachable, and encouraging. I became a psychologist in order to better treat the 'whole' person given that my expertise was in using music therapy interventions to facilitate change. I have a Masters degree in music therapy as well as a Masters degree and Doctorate in psychology. My work has encompassed birth thru retirement-aged individuals. Given that I have 2 small children myself, I use my knowledge of current social media and childhood interests as a bridge toward developing trust and rapport with children and teens. In my work, I look for the client's strengths, their interests, and their goals to inform treatment. My philosophy is to help clients discover their own passions, their inner wisdom, and believe in their goals. What sets me apart from other clinical psychologists is that I am open-minded, and form my own opinions about presenting problems. I strive to uncover stones left unturned, am slow to make assumptions about why issues are present, and consider it a privilege to work with others. I take pride in my clients' accomplishments as they become aware of options they had previously overlooked, find their own inner strength, and reclaim their control. I also enjoy the process of supervising new clinicians as they embark in their professions. I use a personal and psychodynamic approach to supervision while also fostering improved clinical understanding of their clients. Supervising also affords me the opportunity to share my knowledge and insights with therapists which is transferred to the clients they treat. Making personal changes is never easy, especially when they ultimately upset typical patterns of interaction with others. But, we navigate rough waters together and even anticipate the struggles ahead.

Care Philosophy

I believe that there are multiple paths towards becoming the person we wish to be. I incorporate creative & interactive approaches in my work with children & their families. As a board-certified music therapist, I often use music and play with younger children to affect positive changes in behavior and emotional development. I strive to provide a continuum of care to clients in my care & work collaboratively with other providers to ensure open communication to promote the best possible outcome.
