She’s the best therapist I’ve had yet! So knowledgeable and affirming while also challenging me to do stuff that’s hard but good for me.

It's only been a couple sessions and I have been learning so much from them. I feel comfortable and open; I know I can can talk about anything confidentially.

I feel relieved after my first session. Michelle put my anxiety at ease immediately. I felt the compassion she has for me and what I'm going through. I felt understood and really heard. She was obviously prepared for our session and moved at a pace I was comfortable with. I'm excited for the help I'll receive and happy that I reached out for it.
