Treatment and Staff
After an assessment in which Webber and the client discuss treatment goals and philosophy, clients attend individual therapy, usually once a week. The length of treatment is progress-based, with clients attending anywhere from several months to several years.
Webber uses CBT, mindfulness techniques and psychodynamic processing, among other modalities, depending on the client’s needs and preferences. She also encourages clients to participate in 12-step, SMART Recovery, Refuge Recovery, or any other peer support framework or sober activity that enables them to build community and invest in the growth of others.
Webber believes that substituting substance use with an activity that builds self-esteem is an essential step on the road to recovery. Through journaling and other homework exercises, she helps clients discover which activities and goals are likely to motivate them to learn the skills necessary for lasting sobriety.
Webber provides coordinated care with clients’ psychiatrists and case managers. She maintains relationships with several outpatient and inpatient programs in southern California and Connecticut and provides referrals when a higher level of care is required. Webber has additional expertise treating LGBTQ clients and clients with HIV/AIDS.
Michelle Webber has 30 years of experience treating clients for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Her dynamic treatment philosophy encourages clients to actively search for deep meaning in their daily lives in order to cultivate the resilience and hope needed to forge a new path in recovery.
