My Approach to Helping

I’m so glad you’re here! Starting therapy is a big deal, and finding the right therapist is key. My name is Michelle, and I am passionate about working with adults of all ages who are navigating difficult life transitions, academic pressures, workplace stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. My clients are curious about exploring their own strengths and feel motivated to build new strategies to improve their situations and overall mindsets. I also have significant experience supporting caregivers with aging parents who have complex physical and mental health issues.

From my professional work and personal experiences, I know that self-compassion and self-understanding are foundational to meaningful change. My client work is informed by collaborative principles, as I use elements from compassion focused, emotional focused, feminist, trauma-informed and person-centered therapies.

I am committed to making sure you have a comfortable and authentic space to explore your needs and goals. I look forward to connecting with you soon to see if we are a good fit.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The rapport between therapist and client is one of the most studied aspects of therapy, and frankly the most important in predicting clients' success. You should feel genuinely heard, understood and supported by your therapist. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to help you know if we're a good fit, and I'm happy to answer any of your questions about my approach, background and the therapeutic process.
