Currently accepting video sessions from the convenience of your own location. www.mft-michelle.com. I have over 15 years of experience partnering with adolescents, young adults, families, and couples, as they navigate through challenges to discover and fulfill their lifelong dreams. I specialize in supporting women and families transitioning through difficult times such as parenting, chronic illness, eating disorders, couples therapy, grief and loss, and work-related stressors. Recovery and leading a life of fulfillment is truly possible. Take the first step toward finding hope and leading an authentic, love-filled life.
I am certified to work with Eating Disorders and Body Image Issues. I have extensive training working with Families, Parenting, Pre and Postnatal Issues, Marital and Premarital Therapy, and High Conflict relationships. I have a Therapy Dog and I use a strength-based approach, DBT, CBT, and Mindfulness in my practice.
My approach is Evidenced-Based and Strength-Based. I incorporate the whole family system. I tailor my approach to meet the unique goals and needs of each individual client.
