Michelle has been great. She validates my feelings, helps me understand where my anxiety is coming from and has provided great tools for me to use and work with. She listens when I explain things that don't seem to be helping and helps me adjust. I am very grateful for her support.

Michelle has been amazing. I’ve worked with her over the last few months regarding generalized anxiety that has gotten worse from a break up as well as working in healthcare during a pandemic. This is my first time trying any sort of app or online therapy and I thought it would take away the face to face connection component, but it has actually been better than any in person therapy I’ve ever done. Michelle is extremely approachable and down to earth. She has an incredible way of acting like a great friend listening and joking with you about the dumpster fires of the world, but in a way that is guiding your thinking and actions to better ways. I could not recommend her enough.
