Michelle Kamla

Being a wife, a mother and now a grammy is the best job in the world. I look at every day as a new opportunity to grow and learn from God and others.

My professional career has also been God led. I have worked with domestic violence survivors, addicts/alcoholics, and those conflicted with mental health disorders for over fourteen years in the county social service system. In my internship, I have focused my research and practice on people with post-traumatic stress disorder and complex trauma. I have had the honor of watching clients heal from such disorders in miraculous ways. Along the journey, I have also acquired training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing). As an EMDR practitioner, I have had extensive training in treating dissociative disorders.

I graduated from Simpson University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I received my Masters in Social Work with a mental health emphasis from Chico State University in 2012. My background also includes a state certificate from California Association of Addiction Recovery and Resources (CAARR). I have been an instructor for the CAARR Institute for ten years and have also worked on and off for CAARR in many different positions over the years. I am grateful for the opportunity to practice therapy under the direction of Guy Ascherman with Higher Ground Counseling.
