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.

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.

I am originally from Brazil, native Portuguese speaker with a proficiency in Spanish and English, and I have been using these skills to provide counseling services in all three languages. I have been offering psychotherapy services for adolescents, adults, families, and couples. My work is guided by psychoanalytic orientation valuing the ethics of listening and acceptance as a way to assist and access people in their relationships with themselves, with others, and the world. This approach focuses on the unconscious processes and in the singularities of each individual. The main intention is to amplify the life potential in each of us, helping us to understand our responsibility in the way we live, work, suffer, and love. This process can be a liberating experience in that it will not try to adapt us to fixed standards. It guides us to cope with our own way of existing, allowing us to say no to the unbearable and sustain our own position/desire in the world.

Life is truly a gift that is meant to be enriching, filled with freedom and happiness. At times we experience challenges that prevent us from living life the way we truly desire. As a modern cognitive behavioral therapist I understand these challenges and how they may alter us internally. My approach to therapy is a collaborative, solution focused and non judgmental. Through this approach I will assist in gaining insight into who you are, empower you to grow and allow you to truly gain the life that you deserve to live. I value being emotionally, behaviorally and mentally healthy. Together we can identify the best strategies, perspectives and mindsets in order for you to create long lasting mental, emotional and behavioral health that can improve your life.

Currently I am only accepting new clients who are trans. I am a trans and queer Licensed Clinical Social Worker and artist with 13 years of experience in community mental health. My approach is that all people deserve to have the opportunity to experience a safe, kind, and welcoming space to explore their mental health, and that as a therapist, it is my job to nurture that. I am driven to create therapeutic opportunities for people who want and need them within the LGBTQ2IA+ community. I am open to working with clients that find themselves in need of an understanding, compassionate, and community-oriented therapist who will help to guide them through healing work. My areas of focus are: LGBTQ2IA+ and TGNC youth and emerging adults, major life transitions, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, ADHD, gender dysphoria, and sexual identity exploration. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) and Master of Arts in Gender Studies (MA) degrees concurrently at Loyola University Chicago. Before entering graduate school, I worked in multiple positions focused on reproductive justice, body autonomy, and community care. My life and professional experiences have led me to provide therapy with a focus on community care through an anti oppressive lense. I understand that helping one person can have a positive impact on the greater community surrounding them. I believe that treatment approaches should fit the individual's needs and thus I utilize many modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, somatics, and narrative therapy. My approaches of curiosity and kindness create a welcoming space to engage in therapy. Choosing to work with a therapist is a powerful way to help yourself and we all deserve a chance to have focused time to explore, learn, and grow through challenges.
