About Me

I have been licensed in the state of Florida for 25 years. I have experience working with all individuals and I have experience with all mental health fields, including depression, schizophrenia, family issues, domestic violence, and gender related issues. I also have experience working with couples and families. I would describe my approach as empathic, goal-oriented and client-centered. The therapies that I draw from include cognitive behavioral, solution focused and psychodynamic approaches.

I enjoy helping people through challenging situations. I provide a warm, non-judgmental and accepting environment. The people that I have worked with previously have described ne as being caring,, empathic, and ensuring that I have each person reach their goals.

I strive to provide the best possible care for all within a warm and trusting environment. Where upon completion of the services, the individual will walk away empowered, strong and resilient.

Michele is exactly what I needed and didn’t know it. She acknowledges when I’m speaking poorly about myself/ being mean to myself and challenges my warped thinking. I’m starting to love myself for possibly the first time in my entire life.

SHE IS AWESOME. Michele is a strong but caring voice that personally works wonders reminding me to get out of my head. She is a wonderful dose of reality and every session with her I come away with a big smile and at least one page of notes to help myself improve. I would recommend her to absolutely everyone.

Michele is not the typical psych that you would expect. She’s raw, she’s real, she gets it without all the typical psych jargon. Give her a shot and you’ll be pleasantly surprised! She also checks in all the time, provides support and encouragement, and is someone you can laugh with.

I have Michele very easy to talk to and although we live in different countries she always gets to my messages when she can. It is almost like talking to an old friend in the way that while it may take a while for both of us to reply it does happen.

Michele has been a great help. She’s very easy to talk to, understanding and helpful. She’s direct and to the point and doesn’t sugar coat things which is exactly what I needed, but also compassionate and understanding.
