About me

I am an independently licensed therapist in Ohio and Florida with over 15 years of experience practicing and providing mental health counseling and consulting. I have spent 15 years providing mental health therapy in community mental health agencies, department of rehabilitation and corrections, and private practice settings. I have assisted and supported clients with a wide range of concerns including life coaching, depression, self confidence deficiencies, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, posttraumatic stress disorder, grief, addiction, substance abuse, and other pervasive and acute mental health disorders. My experience extends to providing services to specialized service providers including: first responders and military personnel including but not limited to: veterans, active duty, and or discharged military. As well as, medical doctors and nursing staff, counselors, social workers, law enforcement, prison corrections officers, and firefighters.

My therapy style is open, genuine, accepting, nonjudgmental, honest, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive behavioral, positive psychology, cognitive behavioral processing, humanistic or Rogerian, psychodynamic, person-centered, and motivational Interviewing to best fit your assessed needs.
I will tailor our sessions and treatment goals to meet your unique and specific needs.
Remember therapy is about striving towards wellness and wholehearted living!
To make the first steps towards change it takes strength, commitment, courage, and the drive to seek a more fulfilling and happier life . If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Michelle was very thoughtful and well spoken. She was honest and straightforward with me when I needed it.

Michelle is amazing. The problem I have is when she is gone for a week or two because I do not want to meet with just another random therapist. Consistency is important.

Michelle is amazing, she has a way of making me feel completely safe, at ease and I am so much more willing to share, engage and get down to the work more efficiently. I feel so supported, encouraged, and hopeful. I like that she lets me be me and meets me where I am at throughout our sessions. I am so incredibly thankful for Michelle.
