"To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world"(Author unknown). When we are facing daily challenges in our lives, it can be difficult to see that we are loved, have a positive mindset, be grateful, feel good about ourselves, smile or have the motivation to do things which can negatively impact our daily functioning and relationships with others. My hope is that through therapy you will learn how to overcome these obstacles in order to become the best version of yourself and realize how important you are in this world.

I work creatively to help you or your child increase awareness of solutions in your lives, use play/art techniques to explore thoughts and feelings, emphasize therapeutic experiments, and have an open dialog to help you/your child feel better and improve the quality of your lives. I have more than 15 years experience helping children, teens, adults, military families and veterans with trauma, grief, anxiety, family conflicts, and depression, among other issues.

Aloha! Life is full of change and transition, and that means life is also full of times when we need extra support to manage the anxiety, depression, and/or distress that often comes along with it. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward. That means I take a holistic, collaborative approach to treatment, with a nod to evidence-based practices, such as CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, as well as using EMDR and trauma-focused CPT for PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

I have also been trained in various trauma focused therapies, and have had past experience working with community mental health, foster youth, and EAP.
In pursuing my career in clinical work, my heart has always gravitated towards helping and supporting people who are under served, unseen, and underrepresented in our communities. Whether it be working with youth "in the system" or our military service members- I strive to be a voice for individuals who may not have the space or platform to be heard. I am looking to connect with patients who are ready for a catalyst for change- whether big or small; and who are ready to do the work to change their inner narrative, implement tools learned, make mind-body connections, and start on a journey towards healing.

If you are tired of how your past is still impacting who you are today, you are ready and willing to take concrete steps toward healing, let's connect. Your past wounds do not have to control how you are experiencing your life today and your future. I want to learn what happened to you, and I go beyond a diagnosis that may have been given to you. I specialize in treating trauma, and here is a short video from me explaining how EMDR could help: https://youtu.be/vagyOVbJBG8

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family, career) with strength and confidence.

Let’s cast aside labels, the idea that something is “wrong with you”, and instead honor the multidimensionality of our humanness and desires for change. Imagine an enriching life that is the embodiment of peace, joy, abundance, authenticity, connection, and living your truth. This is possible for you and it would be an absolute honor and a privilege to walk alongside you in your journey.

Hello, My name is Michelle and I am a Licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) with over 10 years of experience working in the social services field. I started off with humble beginnings and grew up in a low-income community as a first generation born Vietnamese American and have first hand experience of the complex needs of vulnerable populations. My upbringing also taught me the power of resilience, setting boundaries, believing in “come backs,” taking ownership, rewriting narratives, asserting needs and unburdening ourselves of past hurts.

We are perfectly imperfect beings wholly deserving of authentic and meaningful lives. For many of us, we strive to feel heard, be seen, and accepted for who we are. Being disconnected from our truth can lead to feelings of loneliness, hopelessness, and helplessness. Through the many seasons of our lives, we are met with unforeseen challenges that impact our ability to navigate life easefully. Reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign of immense strength. When we feel lost or unsure of what to do next, inviting an empathic other on our journey can be a life changing experience.

Relationships can be wonderful at the best of times, and downright painful at the worst of times. How well do you understand your reactions in these distressed moments? Your partner's? Do you feel out of control? Do you feel disconnected? These are just two ways that people can respond to relational distress. I can help you to slow down in these moments to help you express yourself in a way that is congruent, and most importantly, in a way that lets you be heard by your partner, family, co-workers, and yourself.
