Welcome! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor dedicated to helping my clients lead happy, meaningful lives. My work focuses on helping you gain greater clarity, balancing and expanding your emotional experience, and making new, more productive choices. I employ a direct and driven approach to therapy and focus on goal-based counseling that empowers you to create change in your life. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify what success means to them in an open, safe, and understanding environment. I have a broad range of experience working with people struggling with challenges such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, family conflict, anger management, caregiver concerns, behavioral issues, and much more.
I received my B.S. in Psychology and Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Miami. Since graduate school, I have completed intensive specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy, and Imago relationship therapy, among others. My goal is to help you emerge from sessions feeling stronger, empowered, and self-aware. This ultimately enhances your ability to connect on a more intimate level in all relationships, including with yourself.
I look forward to working with you!

Michelle is amazing. I've spoken to other therapist before and have not had that connection as the way I do with Michelle. She helps me stay aligned with my goals and I feel free to share things without feeling judged. Michelle is very professional and keeps you aligned with seeing the bigger picture along with moving you closer to your own needs and wants. I would highly recommend her if you are scared of counseling/therapy as you will be at ease from the first meeting.
I'm so happy I found Michelle! Our sessions really do help me and I find myself applying things she's said in situations I encounter. She's helping me learn to accept myself, be compassionate with myself, and to work through the thought patterns I have. I highly recommend her to anyone with anxiety or body-image issues.
Michelle has been fantastic in the short time we were able to spend together. I would recommend her to anyone seeking counseling.
Very motivating and uplifting experience, pulled me through some hard times and made me feel not so alone.
When I was in a rut and feeling hopeless, over and over again through my own personal failures, Michelle was able to get me back on track. It is difficult to think about where my head would have been if I hadn't decided to take the first step towards seeking help. I am truly thankful for having Michelle with me along this stressful but infinitely rewarding journey.
The only thing that I can say is, she knows the perfect timing to when to lighten up the convo and making it less emotional! She's nice and awesome!
