Michal Tsemach, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

For over 20 years I have had the privilege of providing psychotherapy to adults, offering compassion and clinical skills to help individuals reach their goals and nourish their lives. I earned my MSW in Clinical Social Work from The Catholic University of America and completed a post-graduate program of Psychodynamic Treatment for adults at The Baltimore Washington Psychoanalytic Institute. I have experience working in a variety of clinical settings including community psychiatry and social services, and I have been providing psychotherapy at UMH since 2007.

My approach is both interactive and supportive. The client-centered psychotherapy services I provide are tailored to meet the individual needs of my clients. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations including psychodynamic (insight-oriented), cognitive behavioral (skills development) and relational treatment approaches. The psychotherapy that I offer focuses on not only treating the symptoms of mental illness and relational conflict but addressing the deep, underlying issues that give rise to these symptoms. I encourage my patients to actively explore how their internal lives affect both their behavior and their relationships, as well as their professional/academic experiences, in a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment.
