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.

Living as your authentic self is sometimes a struggle with who you expect to be and who others expect you to be. Changing habits can be very difficult but I want you to know that you have the ability to start over and be the best version of yourself. As a Licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, I use a holistic approach to support clients to meet their behavioral health goals. I love working with clients who “just need a place to vent” but also individuals who experience a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, PTSD, stress management, substance use and grief. I began training as a psychotherapist 7 years ago and have worked with diverse and vulnerable populations in social services and healthcare settings ever since.

Contacting a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to see how I can help. Therapy with me is probably not what you expect. My sessions are highly interactive, and I offer insights, ask questions to understand you better, and challenge you to look within. I focus on your unique strengths to help you grow. If you're stuck in an unhealthy pattern, I’ll point it out and help you find new ways to move forward. In every session and in between sessions, I give you useful tools starting from our first meeting. I am dedicated to helping you become free from emotional pain, deal with life on life’s terms, and find meaning in all areas of life. I accept insurance and offer (sliding scale) self-pay clients day, evening and weekend telehealth appointments. My practice is a safe haven for adults of all ages, whether you're seeking personal growth and change or navigating workplace challenges and anxieties. As a corporate coach, I bring years of experience and insight. I offer day, evening and weekend appointments, and strongly endorse free consultations to see if we are a good fit. I believe that life experiences inform and teach us. I have a rich history as a corporate coach, therapist, friend, marital partner, adoptive parent, single parent, runner, volunteer and writer. I am laser-focused on helping you learn new coping skills, and my extensive experience and library of tools and worksheets offer immediate support, and drive your progress. If you're craving a solution-focused approach that leads to rapid transformation and a return to a satisfying life, I can't wait to join forces with you to start this exciting adventure.

Adulting is hard and brings its own sets of challenges! In fact, adulthood can be a rollercoaster ride at times. Although rewarding, being an adult has its ups and downs. Sometimes we find our “downs” are making us feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or stuck. Because there is no definitive “how to guide” for adulting, we might find ourselves having a tough time navigating some of the bumps or downs we find ourselves experiencing. What I want you to know is you do not have to feel this way forever – living a different life and enacting change is possible. And I am here to support you along the way! As a therapist, I am passionate about working with adult clients who are in early adulthood (18-35). I frequently see clients who could use extra support with navigating adulthood. Commonly, I work with clients who want to identify and act on solutions to help them feel differently, gain insight into their concerns, or even find more effective ways to cope with what’s bothering them. I often work with clients who are going through a life transition, are coping with changes in their life, or want to make a change in their life (but aren’t sure how). Frequent concerns that tend to pop up in my work with clients include anxiety, depression, stress, overwhelm, irritability, low motivation, feeling "stuck", problems sleeping and burnout. I also support clients with perfectionism, health concerns, grief/loss, poor work-life balance, difficulties boundary setting, and/or a desire to communicate more effectively. If any of this resonates with you, please reach out and schedule your intake appointment. It would be a pleasure to work with you!

If you've never been in therapy before, I know it can be a scary step. Be proud of your bravery. If you have been in therapy before, I'm glad you chose to return. Either way, my job is to help you find your strengths to learn to manage any issues you are dealing with so you can find your peace again. It is a journey and it won't always be easy but it will be worth it. I have been a therapist and a psychology professor for almost 30 years. I have worked with children, teens, and adults, although I have spent the majority of my career working with teens. I enjoy teens. I have a lot of patience for them. I believe in psychoeducation in therapy. I think that it's not only important to understand what you are doing but why you are doing it. Only by understanding both can you make the changes necessary for long-term happiness. I also believe in working on both the present and the past. I want to help you figure out how to make the present better immediately, while also working to understand anything from your past that may have helped lead to any current issues. Working on both in combination will give the most thorough explanation and avenue for effective treatment. Most importantly, I believe in working together. I may be the "expert" but only you know what is working and what isn't. I will ask you for feedback and I will listen to what you have to say. I am more than willing to do phone appointments if you find them more comfortable than video appointments. Just let me know.

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.
