My therapist is so wonderful, kind, and caring. I have never felt judged by her, and that allowed me to be completely honest and transparent with her. In return she helped me through a very difficult patch in my life and now I am much better. I am very grateful to my therapist for her support and help.

Michelle has been fantastic! I've been meeting with her for a few months now, and I have been feeling amazing. She is very kind and patient with me, she does not judge and even my family can see that I've been doing a lot better mentally. I would strongly recommend her to anyone I can! She has been such an amazing resource for me. I am not always great at sharing things vocally, so being able to do live chats with her fits right into my comfort zone. I will continue working with her for as long as I possible can!

Michelle is kind, open, and understanding. She asks me a lot of really good questions that make me think! I appreciate her thoughts.
