Micheline Toussaint MSW, LCSW, OSW-C, RYT, SEP
Micheline Toussaint, MSW, LCSW, OSW-C, RYT, SEP, a licensed clinical social worker for over 30 years, has practiced in a variety of settings. Her particular areas of interest are adjusting to challenging health situations (especially cancer), stress and its impact on general health, and post-traumatic stress disorders.
She is trained in EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, somatic experiencing, and psychodrama. She is also a certified yoga and meditation teacher.
As a teenager growing up in South Asia, she witnessed a wide variety of mind-body approaches to both physical and emotional healing and has brought that breadth into her own work.
Micheline was on staff as a psychotherapist at Inova Life with Cancer for 15 years, where she developed programs to teach resiliency skills to patients and families affected by cancer. She speaks to community groups about psychosocial issues affecting people with cancer.
Her particular interest in metastatic breast cancer led her to create and facilitate a bi-monthly support group for women living with metastatic cancer.
Micheline currently has a full-time psychotherapy practice, where she provides individual and couples therapy.
