Hello, I'm glad you are here

My name is Michele Montenegro, LCSW-C, CCATP. I am the founder and owner of arKardia Counseling & Consulting. My passion and purpose is to build a business with integrity that honors all people and guides them on their journey toward emotional growth and healing.

I have been working as a licensed psychotherapist in outpatient and private practice settings for over 20 years. My clinical training from graduate school, experience from Johns Hopkins Hospital/University and extensive continued education have led me to most often utilize:

  • Client-Centered Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • EMDR Therapy
  • Christian Based Counseling
  • Family Systems Therapy

Relationally, clients describe me as a good listener, calm, real, warm, non-judgmental and helpful. I am often humbled at being the first person to hear about presenting symptoms and painful experiences. You will be valued, heard and accepted as you are while we examine your past, present and future goals.

I value your story, who you are as a person and am honored to guide you in your journey toward growth and healing.
