I am a licensed Masters level Social Worker in Michigan and California with over 10 years of experience. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings with young adults, adults, and older adults with a wide array of mental health concerns.
I have also worked as a litigation attorney and as a teacher. These experiences have strengthened my abilities to relate, connect, and provide support to my clients.
My counseling style is one of collaboration and responsiveness. I am attuned to my clients unique and individual personalities, situations and needs. I believe that empathy and letting the client set the pace of therapy is imperative to an effective process and the realization of desired outcomes.
Therapy is a supportive, safe place where every aspect of you is welcome – even the parts that may be uncomfortable to share. As your therapist, I will strive to build and maintain a space for healing and growth.
I am ready to begin the process with you!

Written on Jul 09, 2023 after therapy with Michele for 2 years and 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and anger management
Michele is fantastic! She’s very warm and I was comfortable with her right away. She has a lot of really helpful suggestions and information that made talking to her feel like I had more solutions than I felt I’d had prior. Plus, she’s funny and it feels, to me, a bit like having a gab session with someone I’m close to. 10/10 would recommend.
