She’s so understanding when it comes to my thoughts. Never makes me feel like my feelings are overdramatized
It's been a blessing to have Michelle as my counselor. I feel very comfortable talking to her. She listens and has provided me with tangible things I can do moving forward. Thank you Michelle!
Great person to talk to. Very optimistic! It is a pleasure to talk to her.
Great counselor. Helps put things into perspective and is very supportive.
She's super nice and understanding! She's very kind-hearted and I feel so comfortable opening up to her. Very funny and knows how to make you feel safe. :)
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.
