About

I believe life’s ups and downs give depth and meaning to life, however, as these occur, a person's unique inner rhythm may become unbalanced. If you are experiencing infertility or a medical illness, stress, anxiety, loss, or relationship issues, your life may feel unsettled. Counseling can help calm the chaos by helping you to identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors not serving you well and replace them with healthy productive ones. You can develop acceptance and skills, grieve and process difficult emotions, and problem-solve to move forward in life. We can work together to restore your inner balance and bring you inner peace.
As a certified MedFT, my clinical niché is working with clients challenged by medical issues such as infertility, chronic health issues, or medical trauma. Don't stay stuck or let a diagnosis define you. In addition, I work with family members & medical providers to identify secondary trauma, navigate compassion fatigue, and facilitate work/life balance.
Also, as a Gottman-trained therapist and workshop leader, I enjoy working with individuals and couples to build healthy relationship skills, whether creating a new foundation or rekindling romance. Please know... you do not have to navigate life's ups and downs alone. You can call Michelle at IRCC for more information and a 15-minute consult at no charge.

More about this group

Chronic Illness Support Group: Ongoing

A medical illness or injury can knock us out of sync from our familiar way of life and in the process throw off our internal rhythm of living. Having others to listen and support your thoughts and feelings can be healing. Through learning the tools and skills of ACT, you can build the inner strength from which to move forward embracing life. You can learn to live intentionally, leaning into your life's journey with resolve and resilience. You are not alone... become unstuck and start moving forward in life again! Please call for the most up-to-date info.
