Hello. Thank you for the time. Life is quite the journey with many twists and turns that can make you feel stuck in painful experiences while forgetting the beauty that exists. I aim to create a safe, warm, and inviting space where one can discover their hidden strengths to overcome and prevail. There is not one thing or approach that gets a person into recovery or quality of living. Whatever is bringing you to step out of the cage and take notice to the discomfort around takes courage. I believe it’s a privilege to be invited into one’s most raw, vulnerable state and allow another to enter.

Life is challenging, you don’t need to navigate it by yourself. If you are bewildered and unsure of your life path, experiencing strained relationships, having difficulty “keeping up” and continually feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. These are questions that many of my clients are searching for answers to. Life comes with many responsibilities and can be challenging to navigate. Children, adolescents and adults are becoming discouraged, lacking motivation, and frustrated by their commitments. Here are a few of the issues that I assist my clients with; I help children develop their social skills, and how to problem-solve situations, I help adolescents examine their choices in life and how to manage their emotions, and I work with adults to find purpose in life and develop self-care. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I will help guide you to identify your current concerns and to learn about your past to help us with the present. I will help identify your strengths and explore ways to use them to address life’s questions and challenges. Together we will formulate goals to address during our sessions.

Hi. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I want perspective clients to know I genuinely care about the people I work with, and have a passion for joining people on their journey to a new self. The fact that you are searching for a therapist shows you would like something to change. This is very brave. We often lose perspective about situations and how we deal with them. This can be a result of things we have buried from our past, or relationships that did not support us in the way we need. I will give you a safe and supportive place to look at your unwelcome patterns and find a way to make your journey more fulfilling. My counseling focus is on adolescents and adults. My philosophy is client-centered, Mindfulness based, trauma informed, and goal oriented. I have training and experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. My areas of focus include trauma, attachment issues, difficulties with distress tolerance and emotional regulation, along with families dealing with Alzheimer's. Your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are what make you who you are. As we work together to understand these parts of you, we will find a way to alter those thoughts that no longer work for you and strengthen those that are helping you become who you wish to be.

Hello! I'm Michelle. As a dedicated mental health therapist, I am committed to guiding individuals on their journey towards well-being with a strong emphasis on self-care and intention. My goal is to get my clients started with building awareness of the patterns and behaviors causing distress, setting out to build strategies into seeing the “bigger picture”, and then making the choice to shift away into "new and different". I believe that the mental health journey can feel different for everyone and is valid for all. It’s addressing the pile-on effects of everyday stress and learning how to breathe through anxiety and panic attacks. It’s establishing and keeping a daily routine as part of ADHD symptom management and finding self-compassion when experiencing depressive thoughts. There is no perfect or prescriptive way to approach the process of mental well-being. My role as a therapist is to support, facilitate, and provide collaborative space to examine all the pieces.
