Michelle has been a good listener and showed great patience with me as I opened up. She’s helpful, friendly, and shows that she really cares and wants me to have a heathier mindset about my circumstances. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Michelle gave me my first experience with therapy. She is a great listener and so easy to talk to. She helped me to see my situation from other perspectives and I left my session feeling a weight off my chest. She's wonderful.

I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle throughout this month on relationship challenges. She has been considerate, offers helpful suggestions and resources, and asks me questions that allow me to look from a perspective that I may not have done so before. I would strongly recommend taking notes throughout your sessions.
