About me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Vermont. I am also an alcohol and drug counselor and am happy to treat co-occurring disorders (mental health and substance abuse). I specialize in working with adults with depression, anxiety, grief, complicated grief as well as with issues with communication, confidence and identify issues.
My approach is to listen and then to reflect back what I hear to be sure I have captured my patient's struggle. From there, we work together to develop skills to help the patient to be able to more successfully navigate their life.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Michele Pilz. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

She listens to concerns I have brought up or feelings of anxiety and asks questions that allow me to expand on the emotions I may be feeling and how they affect my day to day living. She also provides constructive feedback and thoughtful responses.

Michele is such a comforting spirit! She listens to my questions and issues and offers realistic suggestions that are not scripted. She is easy to talk to and I've never felt judged by her. She's awesome

Michele is my first ever therapist and I hit the lottery by BetterHelp suggesting her to me. She has been beyond helpful, kind, and understanding. Her patience, knowledge and expertise is unmatched. She is professional, honest, and truly cares because it shows in every session. She has made a true impact on me and I can only assume for the rest of her patients as well.

It has been very helpful to be able to speak honestly and with confidentiality about issues that are concerning to me.
