Kelly Michaud

I am the founder and Clinical Director of The Resilience Group, as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Master Addictions Counselor (MAC), and Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS) and native of Savannah, GA. I have over 10 years of experience, that includes working in acute in-patient mental health treatment with children and adolescents and with adults with psychiatric, substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders.

My practice now focuses on couples counseling, gender therapy, and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, and personality disorders. I have completed over 50 hours of training in the area of Transgender mental health and a year of mentorship and consultation. I am also member of the World Professional Association of Transgender Healthcare Providers (WPATH). I have completed over 40 hours of education and training in the area of trauma and complex trauma, including correlation with addiction, and continue to focus on this as an area of interest and independent study. I maintain memberships with the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) and the Georgia Addictions Counselors Association (GACA) as well as the Licensed Professional Counselor Association of Georgia (LPCAGA) as part of my professional development and certifications, MAC and CPCS. I provide Clinical Supervision to interns and associate counselors as part of practice. I work to provide an affirming and accepting environment for all my clients, free from judgment and sensitive to and informed of the cultural factors that impact every individual.

Individually, I work with clients who are feeling overwhelmed with their life struggles or just feel like their life needs an overhaul. Sometimes we all just need that magic “reset” button but aren’t sure where to find it or how to make it work. Through therapy, I help my clients find their own strengths and resilience to overcome what is keeping them stuck. We work together to find a new perspective on those most challenging situations and the ruts that often feel impossible to get out of and reclaim your personal power.
