About Me

I am an independently licensed counselor. I have been counseling for the past 10 years. Over the years, I have had the humbling experience of listening and empowering others be a better version of themselves. I have worked with all ages including those who benefited from play therapy to those who reside in a nursing home. I have a blended approach to counseling based on the clients situational stressors. I have also provided counseling through the eyes of a Christian for those who desire to incorporate God into our sessions. My end goal in counseling is to empower individuals to break any identified cycle of dysfunction for the next generation of their family. I have a calm and empathetic approach and set solid boundaries with my clients.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Michelle was awesome! I joined therapy for the first time in my life and was very nervous at first but Michelle made me feel very comfortable in our chats. Every day I felt like I could talk through issues with her and we would find a solution. Would recommend Michelle to anyone!

Written by R.E. on Jun 18, 2022 after therapy with Michelle for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

Michelle is very responsive, is great at listener, and brings forth a level of empathy that doesn’t make me feel like I am stupid or crazy. She is so understanding and compassionate about my situation and doesn’t push me in any direction. She allows self discovery and gives tasks to do between sessions to assist in that self discover. I would HIGHLY recommend her!

Work with me!
