Michelle Jerard

LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have been in practice since 2012 and have served many populations at every level of care. I have worked with the entire lifespan at the outpatient, in-home, in-patient and in groups over the last decade. I am passionate about working with individuals who have experienced traumatic life events, are going through life transitions, have anxiety, depression, family conflict and parenting conflicts.

I believe in mutual respect and providing the space for your healing process to occur. I use a cognitive behavioral approach embedded with trauma informed care. I tailor each treatment plan to each client and modify as we both see fit.

It takes courage to invest in yourself. I look forward to guiding you on your journey.

Michelle is great. She has taken the time to get to know me and build a relationship that works.

Written by K.E. on May 07, 2022 after therapy with Michelle for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

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 a wonderful therapist to work with. She’s real and empathetic, and can use her expertise to help. She’s phenomenal at her job, can’t say more good things!

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.

Listens to needs and adjusts recommendations to suit.

Michelle is super down to earth and makes therapy like just talking to a friend over coffee. She is always providing resources and challenging my worldviews to help me grow personally and within my relationships as well. Would definitely recommend her to others!

I think Michelle I has been helpful, she’s given me good ideas on dealing with the troubles in my life… I need to work on applying them …

Michelle is the PERFECT counselor for women trying to figure themselves out after having a baby. Michelle has helped me deal with postpartum anxiety, the transition back to work/daycare, reconnecting with my spouse, and finding fulfillment in my life outside of being a mom.

Michelle is an extremely nice and wonderful human being! I came to Better Help with no knowledge or experience of therapy. This was my first time and I am very glad to have made the choice to seek therapy. I felt there was something wrong with me and had finally made the decision to do it. I got Michelle as my match up and I couldn’t be happier. I can talk to her openly and she responds with care. I can only connect to her with other things to gain a amazing relationship with her. She holds me accountable, reminds me to things of my health that I have forgotten and gives me tools of knowledge that I have never knew. She’s funny and friendly and I would recommend her to others!

Michelle has been so helpful for me. She is kind and manages to do just the right balance of supportive listening and guidance. She is extremely knowledgeable and naturally applies this to how she can help me in my life. I am so thankful to work with her and look forward to how I can continue to grow with her support!
