I wish words were enough to leave Michelle a review. She helped me get my life back. She was ALWAYS there to answer me and encourage me through whatever I was going through. At my darkest moments she always had hope and the exact words I needed to hear. Not once did I feel like I couldn’t come out of my depression, anxiety, trauma, ect. She became so much more than a therapist but a part of my life and a friend. My entire family is so thankful for her. Michelle is an amazing woman and God uses her through this. Again I say words will never be enough and anyone that is able to work with her is blessed
