She’s so understanding when it comes to my thoughts. Never makes me feel like my feelings are overdramatized

Ms. Prado has been exceptionally helpful, kind, considerate, professional, and accommodating. I am so glad that we were able to pair together. I am very impressed with her abilities and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who asked. I couldn’t be more pleased with Ms. Prado as my counselor.

We’ve just recently started our sessions, but I LOVE talking to Michelle. Whenever we talk, it’s so refreshing and I honestly look forward to her responses and her feedback. She’s super real, personable, and just really comforting to talk to. Would recommend her ten times over.
