Michele Mazzo, MSW, LCSW

Michele is highly skilled at assisting individuals with discovering their unique purpose, building a strong sense of self, and increasing emotional intelligence. Her method involves teaching how to adopt radical honesty and compassion for self while reparenting their inner child to heal generational trauma. Michele’s approach to therapy is client centered: clients are the experts on their lives and determine the direction and depth of therapy. Michele offers her clients the tools needed to reframe thought processes to not only increase self-actualization and identity, but to also optimize strengths needed to achieve personal goals. Radically committed to sharing her gifts to make a difference in the world, Michele has devoted herself to providing unconditional positive regard, comprehensive clinical guidance, empathetic support, validation, authentic feedback and psychoeducation. Michele has spent the last 12 years as a healer / therapist in various settings in the state of New Jersey and the last 15 years weaving her own spiritual path in order to show up in integrity for herself and others. She has served as a Reunification Supervisor, Program Director, Residential Clinician, Sound healer, Art therapist, Outpatient Therapist and Spinal Energetics Practitioner.

Michele is a true intuitive empath. Her natural born gifts allow her the ability to step into the unique frequency of others and truly feel what is present in her client’s emotional realm. Her deep understanding of the mind, clinical education/training, and empathic nature for the human experience, allows her to explore internal terrains not previously accessible without this level of awareness.

I was lucky enough to begin sessions with Michele a year and a half ago – we instantly clicked. I felt so safe and at ease with Michele. I was going through some health issues and one of the more difficult times in my life. I developed anxiety issues from it all, and Michele was a lifesaver. She helped me overcome many obstacles and my life became easier again. Once we got through the more difficult times, she helped guide me through other areas of my life. I’ve not only gotten my life back, but I’ve gained so much more insight about myself and feel even better. I’m so very thankful for Michele and for Navesink Wellness for employing such kind people. If anyone is looking for assistance in any area of their life, Michele and the NWC team would be a great resource for you!
