I have inspired and motivated many interesting individuals, who make the choice, like you, to seek counseling. Our mutual goal is to make dynamic changes in your life. I offer a dedicated, experienced and professional listening ear, compassionate spirit, and a clear, supportive guiding voice. Learn to develop your strengths, coping skills, and energy so that you can better enjoy your life. Our focus is to change, to solve the problems at hand, and to learn how to problem solve for the future, and create lasting differences for an improved lifestyle. Energizing ourselves to face challenges and changes, celebrating moments and sustaining steps into 'new normal' are the hallmarks of effective
collaboration in our counseling setting. After 35 + years of experience, I have learned from so many people, and hopefully they have learned also from our think-out-loud-in-a-safe-space time together. Some favorite change words: creativity, resilience, mindfulness, mutuality.

Michelle is a very empathetic therapist, that relates to you by sharing anecdotes of herself. She creates a judgment-free zone that made me feel comfortable sharing all my emotions! I wholeheartedly recommend her.
