Michelle is an amazing counselor, who listens to all of your issues and let’s you explain everything, instead of jumping to conclusions. I would highly recommend her.

Michelle has been so supportive and helpful throughout my therapy journey. I have had a few therapists in the past, and I knew the therapist-patient rapport/relationship was an important part of therapy, but I didn't realize how much of a positive impact this aspect could have in my life. Highly recommend her! She is very flexible and understanding with your needs and schedules. I have never felt judged by her -- I look forward to our sessions, and overall am very very very happy and thankful to have her as my therapist!
