Congratulations! You have just taken a very courageous step in taking back control of your life.
Just a word or two about myself in introduction. I have been working in the mental health field for the past eighteen years working with people with depression, anxiety, personality disorders, bipolar, adjustment disorder as well as a variety of other issues. I am currently facilitating group counseling in a mental health setting specifically catering to patients who have depression, anxiety, bipolar and personality disorder diagnosis. I also see people in a private practice setting for individual therapy. I utilize an eclectic mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy in working with my clients. ln later stages of therapy I prefer to move the focus toward a forward focused, goal oriented mindset incorporating Positive Psychology to work toward the client's ideal self. I look forward to working with you and accompanying you on your journey of being you bravely!

You’re really easy to talk to and help me think about things from differently perspectives

I've only had two sessions so far, but Michelle has already given me valuable insights.
My only issue is with the video technology. Yesterday during our session we were disconnected multiple times, and had to switch to a phone session. It's jarring when in the middle of a therapy session and you have to keep restarting.

Michelle is compassionate, easy to talk to, no-nonsense, and quickly effective! She gave me worksheets and reading that helped more than a previous 5 years of "talk" therapy that didn't seem to have an end point. She's so efficient yet gentle enough for even someone with a serious trauma disorder. Highly recommend.

Michelle has been a tremendous support for me and she is very caring, a great listener, and gives me helpful tools to manage different anxieties and worries and improve my communication skills with those closest to me. I trust her very much and am so grateful to be working with her.
