I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in Tennessee with over 14 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I have worked with clients on a wide range of concerns including anxiety/stress, life-changes, motivation, self-esteem and mindfulness, just to name a few.
My counseling style is warm and welcoming and very client centered. I believe in treating everyone and their own journey with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I also believe that everyone needs a safe space to be able to talk open and honestly and I strive to provide that space for every single client I meet.
My approach is a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral, Rational-Emotive and Solution- Focused Therapy. I will tailor my work with you to meet your unique and specific needs for treatment.
It takes courage to take the first step towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Michelle has been such an attentive therapist. She has given me insight into who I am and what my strengths are. I am more self-aware and confident in my ability to communicate my needs to those around me.

Michelle is amazing. In just a short amount of time, she helped me immensely on my healing journey. The best therapist I’ve had! Truly gifted in her practice.

I like Michelle. I find her easy to talk to & she has good 'tasks' to help one through issues. I am glad that I did not accept the first counselor offered to me (didn't meet per se) but just didn't sound like a good match.

Michelle was excellent to speak to during my first counseling session....I had never participated in counseling until Michelle, however her voice, attentiveness, and ability to clarify issues that helped me help myself was outstanding.....I immediately felt at ease, safe and was able to walk away with new tools that gave me an emotional outlet....I look forward to our second session.
