Michele Kratochvil


About Me

I have been in the counseling field for the past 15 years. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with my BA in psychology and my Masters from Rollins College in Winter Park Florida. I also have had a massage therapist license since 1990.

I enjoy helping clients understand how their bodies are holding their emotions and how to become more aware and mindful of patterns of behaviors that no longer serve us. I love helping parents become more in control of themselves so they can be in charge of the situations that arise while raising children. I enjoy assisting others with depression and anxiety and finding joy and peace again. I like teaching communication skills to enhance our ability to share with others and improve our relationships with children and significant others. Above all, I love sharing my faith and having a biblical perspective on what challenges and stressors we might face on the journey of life on earth.

Although I am a Christian and enjoy working with other Christians, please know that the work I do is very non-judgmental. Counseling/coaching is not about placing my opinions on you. Rather it is helping you understand you and what goals and needs you have to be more fulfilled in this life.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Written by A.T. on Mar 26, 2018 after counseling with Michele for 2 years and 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, bipolar, and depression

I always let people know that I participate in therapy online with Betterhelp and that I really enjoy it. I have a lot going on and Michele has been there every step of the way. She reminds me I am not my brain and helps me walk through situations.

I know online therapy isn't for everyone and a few of my friends who have tried it didn't care for it but some have and like it as well. It's right for me so I can write out my thoughts and feelings then come back to them after I have calmed down. I'm thankful for Michele for helping me even when I am a hot mess. Thanks Michele!

Michele has a pleasant and professional way of cutting to the chase. She asks tough questions and offers practical advice and suggestions on how to look at things differently.

Michele has been an compassionate counselor and an amazing listener. She helped me with advice and an understanding approach to what issues I was facing. She understood that life sometimes gets in the way and there was no pressure to rush to talk things through. Michele helped me understand things from a different perspective, helped me get over my initial apprehension of seeing a counselor and I'm thankful for all of her help.

Michele always listens to me which I appreciate, even though it may be the same thing over and over. She is honest and gives me takeaways.

Michele has been extremely helpful with very constructive suggestions and feedback. Because of the freedom to communicate on my schedule this has been a great option for me to get the emotional support and guidance to keep me positive and work through my personal struggles.
