Michele has helped me so much over these past 4 months. When I first started my therapy my anxiety was at an all time high. She has empowered me using tools to overcome my anxiety and enhance my life. Her guidance has played a pivotal role in bringing me closer to my family and fostering a healthier and productive lifestyle. I would highly recommend Michele!

I have been working with Michele for months now and I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better therapist. It doesn’t feel like I’m talking to a therapist, it really just feels like I’m speaking to a friend that cares about me and I really appreciate that. It puts you at ease. I know BetterHelp offers thousands of other options, but one things for certain: I was very blessed to have met her. Highly recommend.
