Michelle's journey in the counseling field started over fifteen years ago working with individuals in the justice system. Working in this system solidified her belief that people need and want more than a bandaid approach to therapy. She is experienced in working with clients who have faced grief, loss, childhood trauma, abuse, marriage and parenting problems, career challenges, depression, and anxiety. She is also a certified yoga instructor with knowledge of how our minds and bodies store and hold on to past trauma and unhealed emotional wounds.
Michelle's approach to therapy is holistic in nature and incorporates cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, narrative techniques and neurofeedback therapy. She believes we all have within us the ability and resilience to overcome life's challenges and obstacles especially when we have someone in our corner to listen and understand what it is we are going through.
Michelle is passionate about treating the whole person through establishing a positive, warm and empathetic therapeutic relationship with her clients. Life is never without challenges, but you don't have to face these challenges alone. She is here to support you through this journey.
