About

Michelle is a compassionate, empathetic, and down to earth therapist who believes in working holistically with clients. She will join you in your life journey where you are at and work hard to establish a collaborative, therapeutic relationship to work towards the changes you are hoping to make. People are complex beings and often need help and support as they develop self understanding, make sense of their life experiences, and strive for positive change. Michelle has a passion for working with new / expecting parents adjusting to their roles and/or suffering from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, infertility issues or loss.
Michelle believes we all need to be heard, & understood ultimately learning that we are enough. She uses concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness practice and acceptance and commitment therapy. She balances practical concepts that can be directly applied and humor with deeper concepts that take pause and time to integrate.
She considers joining in this work a true honor and privilege. She is dedicated to joining with you wherever you are at in this journey and helping you become a more full version of yourself.
