My name is Michelle Rampone and I am a licensed clinical social worker in both Massachusetts and Florida. I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology in 1997 and earned a Masters in Social Work with a focus in clinical social work from Columbia University. For more than 14 years, I have worked for well-known and respected agencies in the Boston Metro West area, until moving to Amelia Island, FL in April of 2013.
About You Counseling & Coaching, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD throughout the lifespan and school age children with behavioral and/or mood disorders such as ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Depression and Anxiety. It is a special place to seek counseling, life coaching, parental guidance, skill building groups and other valuable resources. Here, they have somewhere to vent, learn new skills (coping, problem solving, communication, anger management, organization, study, social, etc.) and more importantly, reflect and share their thoughts and feelings in a safe, comfortable environment. Parents will benefit by learning more effective parenting skills and ways to communicate with their children.
My experience with and dedication to treating ADHD in kids and adults, as well as other emotional or behavior issues, isn’t just professional; it’s personal: I have ADHD. Untreated until I attended graduate school, I am better able to understand the effect of symptoms from a variety of perspectives and apply that knowledge to the treatment of my clients. My clients feel that because I live it, have struggled with it, understand the thoughts and emotions associated with it, and continue to find new strategies to manage and cope with it, it gives me an advantage in their treatment. I also have an ability to connect and develop an alliance with teens, especially those who are defiant, disrespectful, who feel entitled or are resistant to counseling or coaching. Working with these challenging clients and the families affected by them, is my true passion. My clients have described me as an effective, progressive, hard working, caring, passionate, young at heart, empathetic, accommodating, “think outside the box” kind of therapist.
