Meet The Therapists

  • Michelle Hofman, Lcsw-R
    Turning Point's Owner and Founder

    Welcome to Turning Point Therapy’s webpage, I am so glad you found us! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, who has been providing therapy to adults and adolescents in a range of settings since 2006. I have been in private practice since 2012 and formed the Turning Point Therapy group in 2018. I have my undergraduate degree from Villanova University – Go Wildcats! – and my graduate training from The State University at Stony Brook. I am EMDRIA Certified in providing EMDR therapy and am a Consultant-In-Training. I love that my work with clients has evolved to being able to work on underlying issues instead of merely helping someone cope with and manage their symptoms. I work by gathering a client’s history, figuring out with them what they want from therapy and making a plan together about how to achieve that goal. Together we will use EMDR, parts/ego state work, attachment theory and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy among other interventions to heal.   I oversee all of the treatment at Turning Point Therapy, so no matter which therapist you choose, I will always see to it that you are receiving excellent care.

  • Carissa McDermott

    My name is Carissa McDermott and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I believe the best way of healing through trauma and anxiety is to develop coping skills/ communication skills/self-regulation skills in order to improve overall functioning. I have completed basic training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) in 2015 and utilize this model with my clients to address maladaptive beliefs that are impacting the ability to improve quality of life and reduce distress. I have also been trained in TF-CBT (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy) and will utilize aspects of this model in my therapeutic practice. I love staying on top of the latest treatment interventions to utilize these techniques to help you heal. I believe we must meet our clients where they are in order to best support them in a safe, therapeutic environment to reach their goals.
