About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist who has 27 years of experience of working with all ages of adults in a variety of roles. I have almost 4 years as a Therapist. Among other areas, I work with clients on dealing with challenges in their current jobs and/or job/career path, significant relationships, parenting, life transitions, health and/or disability challenges, caregiving responsibilities, and coping with everyday stress. Prior to becoming a therapist, I have extensive experience working with adults ages 18 to older adult, with physicial and/or behavioral health diagnoses, and/or disabilities. I have held roles in aging, adult day, hospice, home care, and more. I offer coaching around job searching and employment challenges. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space and discuss each client's goals for therapy. Together we examine negative thought patterns and behaviors that can make life more difficult and keep one "stuck." I'm an LGBTQ+ ally. My approach is compassionate, supportive, and client-centered. I utilize various evidence-based treatment approaches, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Problem-solving Therapy (PST). I’m an advocate of movement, exercise and good nutrition, for optimal mind-body, "whole person" health. I encourage clients to make small changes that can lead to positive changes in their lives. All change is incremental and takes time. Today’s stressors are something that none of us could have foreseen. I strive to support my clients in being their most happy and healthy selves. We’re all a work in progress. I’d like to be there for your journey.

Michelle was wonderful from the first interaction. I worked through a few things with her, including considering changing careers. She helped me with the skills to be able to make the change, but more importantly the confidence to know that I was making the right move. I highly recommend working with Michelle, she is personable and kind.

I’ve love to work with Michelle. She has a way with words and has this calm energie making it easy to talk.

Michelle has been a God send for me. She helps me to hold both myself and those around me accountable while also playing devil's advocate, helping me to be more honest with myself about events and my personal feelings. She makes me feel more like I am speaking to a friend and gives me reasonable "homework" (like light/great reading!).

Michelle has helped me to better relationships with myself, others, my colleagues/work-life balance, and my family as a result of our few sessions together. I can't wait to see what positive changes more sessions will bring!

After meeting a couple of time with a *different* therapist that I just didn't seem to be connecting with, I decided to switch things up. I am very glad I did. Michelle is very relatable, and easy to converse with. More importantly, I feel like she is able to hear my various concerns and extract the issues that I need to focus on. If you are still looking for a professional to talk to, I highly recommend her.

Michelle is simply awesome. I was lucky enough to match with her on my first go at better help. She understands the facts about me and really puts herself in my situation. She has helped me a lot not only by truly listening but giving great advice
