Having completed her MA in Counseling and Psychological Services at Saint Mary’s University, Michelle is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. Her therapeutic approach is genuine and strengths based, yet direct which helps her to build trusting relationships with her clients. She integrates principles and practices from various models of psychological theory including cognitive, humanistic, the feminist lens, attachment, and mindfulness. Michelle takes time to get to know her clients; their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and together they work collaboratively towards the clients’ goals. Michelle primarily works with adults, ages 18 and over. She has worked with individuals living with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and anger issues as well as those who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assault. Her work with those who have survived violence has also given Michelle the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients including those experiencing generational poverty, homelessness and individuals from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds.
In her spare time, Michelle likes to spend time with her friends and family, golfs poorly and still goes to the move theatre.
