Psychotherapist Michele Flatau, LICSW, has joined Pain Rehabilitation Services at Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic in Duluth, Minnesota.

“Essentia’s mission statement and values align with my own personal beliefs. These values and beliefs guide and inspire my approach to health care,” says Flatau.

Flatau earned a master’s degree in social work from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in Duluth, Minnesota.

“I was particularly drawn to Pain Rehabilitation Services because of the inter-disciplinary, whole-person focus of the program. I have worked most closely with children and adults who have experienced trauma. I practice a mind-body approach to help the body and mind to calm and process difficult or traumatic experiences which helps my patients move forward in a positive way,” explains Flatau.

Patients must be referred to Pain Rehabilitation Services with a chronic pain related diagnosis. To see Michele Flatau’s full profile, visit and click on “Doctors & Providers.”
