Mica received her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Cardinal Stritch University and is a Licensed Professional Counselor In Training (LPC-IT). Mica has 10 years of experience working with child and adolescent populations through the outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, and residential levels of care. This includes 5 years of experience implementing in-home behavioral health programs for children with autism and 5 years working for Rogers Behavioral Health providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for the treatment of anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders.
Mica utilizes evidence-based therapeutic tools to provide the most effective treatment based on client’s individual needs, including age, presenting symptoms, and diagnoses. Mica views the child and parent as important members of the therapy team and collaborates to establish individualized strength-based treatment goals.
When working with young children, Mica focuses on behavioral modification and play therapy. For older children and adolescents, Mica works from a CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) lens in which the therapist and client explore the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to examine how they influence current states (depressed, anxious, etc.). The therapist and client can then work to create new connections by examining and changing how they evaluate situations and react.
