About Me

LIFE IS CHANGE! I am a heart-centered licensed clinical social worker and Board Approaved Clinical Supervisor (LCSW-BACS) working in Louisiana but also licensed in South Carolina. I come from the New Orleans/Covington area as a life long resident, Southern bred but with exposure to diversity having lived in San Juan, Puerto Rico. My passion and my work is centered around families, family dynamics, growth and change. I also specialize in natural healing modalities, mindfulness, in supporting families and individual in transition, struggling with anxiety, trauma recovery.

Transitions from the old to the new is stressful, especially when the new is not yet formed. Our bodies, minds and even emotions can get stuck as we are called forward through aging, job changes, health issues and family re-creations. Letting go to move forward can require new skills and new ways of thinking and most of all compassionate self-acceptance. Cognitive Behaviorial Therapy is a powerful tool that can support new ways of thinking when the old no longer serves. Nurturing body, mind and spirit is essential for successful transitioning, especially in our current turbulent times.

As we collaborate and co-create a new direction for your life, your dreams and wishes will guide us. Your life centered in the here and now can lead to healthy goals and behaviors to carry you forward. No change takes place without action, and having a heart center guide can make it easier. I can be a guide, but you are the leader.

I love that Michelle allows me to guide my own path in therapy. She is there as a support instead of dictating a therapy program. She's very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in session.

Michelle was so helpful! She helped me work through grief from losing a parent, anxiety, compulsiveness tendencies, anger, and so much more. She explains what's happening scientifically too which helps makes sense of things even more. She's given me the tools I need for a much healthier life.
