Greetings! I'm Michelle, and I am so happy you are taking this step on your wellness journey. We want to live our best lives. However, things can sometimes get in the way. We often feel as though our emotions are spiraling out of control, or that we are walking on eggshells trying to avoid negative interactions with those around us. We may be struggling to cope with the effects of trauma or feelings of worry, hopelessness, or detachment. We might have a loved one who is experiencing a chronic physical or mental health condition that influences our emotional well-being. These challenges can impact us in many ways. It is not uncommon to feel stuck or overwhelmed. Sometimes we may even feel as if our very identity is defined by the problems we are facing. You may feel isolated ashamed, or unsure of how to move forward. I love joining my clients on their healing journey. I help them identify the areas in their life that are preventing them from embracing their self-worth and potential. I use storytelling and art to separate the problem from the person. Utilizing evidence-based techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy will help you get to the root of the problem and develop skills to regain control. When working with children, adolescents, and teens I use my training in Play Therapy to create an experience that is relevant and engaging for younger clients. My job is to be a safe harbor while you grow during this process. I work with children, adolescents, and caregivers as they improve their sense of well-being, safety, happiness, recovery, and health. I’ve worked with many youth and caregivers who are missing out on the joy of living. My passion is helping youth and caregivers find the best parts of themselves and grow to love themselves again. Contact me today for a free consultation and we’ll get started on your journey together.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During your session, we focus on the issues that are most relevant to your needs and experiences by utilizing interventions from different modalities rather than just one. Through this process, you will develop new skills which allow you to take control over your life and reduce the distress you have been experiencing.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My personal life experiences have enabled me to develop great empathy and understanding when working with children and caregivers. I have focused my training and professional experiences to build my therapeutic skills to better support clients who have experienced significant trauma in their life. Equally as important for me is to support caregivers who have experienced the vicarious trauma of a loved one who has significant mental or physical health concerns.
