Your story matters. Your life has value. You are worth it.
Seeking help through life's difficulties can be daunting. It can, at times, also be met with some disapproval from family members and friends who don't understand the position that you are in or the struggles you face. I want to acknowledge your bravery in taking this step to prioritize your mental health. It isn't easy, but I can assure you it will be worth it.
A little about myself: I am passionate about helping others seek out health and wholeness in their lives. I currently practice as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Indiana. In my 8 years of clinical experience I have worked in multiple settings (community based mental health, in-home therapy for adults and children, outpatient therapy) and have experience with a variety of mental health concerns. These include: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, ADHD, ASD, substance abuse, trauma, and more. I like to utilize an individualized, solution-focused approach to assist the in dealing with these issues.
I also enjoy working with individuals who may not have a specific mental health diagnosis, but can benefit from processing family dynamics, difficult work situations, life transitions, grief, stresses of life, childhood wounds... the list goes on. Sometimes it's helpful to gain an outside perspective on things to bring insight, clarity, and direction to difficult situations.
Your personal comfort and emotional safety is of utmost importance to me. I truly believe that the most important aspect of counseling is the therapeutic relationship. I desire that our times together would be free of shame and judgement, and that you would have the freedom to express yourself and explore the issues that have brought you to this point.
Feel free to send me a message if you'd like- we can chat before you commit to a session with me. I truly look forward to hearing from and working with you.

Michelle is awesome! She really listens to me and understands my issues. She has helped me understand myself and lifted the fog from my eyes to see areas of my life in a new way. She has made this experience of therapy quite enjoyable when I never thought it could be.

I have to cancel my membership, because of financial problems. When I come back, I will be looking for her again.

Michelle Miller has helped me more then I could possibly have imagined. She has given me my mental health back and has been very kind and respectful. I had my reserves about betterhelp but honestly after they matched me with Michelle I would recommend betterhelp to anyone.

Friendly. Open. Real. Safe. I have had my fair share of bad therapy experiences and Michelle has made Therapy feel safe again. I would recommend anyone see Michelle.
