First and foremost, I am a daughter of Christ. I am a bible believer and believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save me from my sins. I would not be where I am in my life today without Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I believe that life is hard with Jesus, so without Him, it is truly impossible. I trust and obey God totally and with my whole life. I have been a Christian counselor in my church as well as in the secular world. I meet people where they are at, as Jesus did.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and I have 11 years of experience working with individuals and families as well as extensively working with adolescents. I have helped people with a wide range of concerns including posttraumatic stress disorder, childhood trauma’s, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, relationship and family issues, stage of life challenges, the pain of recovering after a divorce, decision-making, and problem-solving. Other related experience includes working with incarcerated youth who come from the hard streets of Miami. I have also helped many women and men by guiding them through the pain of divorce.
My counseling style is empathetic and interactive and is grounded in wellness of the whole person, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Reality based therapy are my primary approach as I have worked with individuals, groups, and families. While helping people develop tools and skills to empower them and help them achieve their goals, I support people through their process and share their journey. Empathy, compassion, trust, and respect are most important to me and my role as a therapist.
All human beings have emotions. Emotions like sadness, anger, confusion, fear, guilt. Some emotions are hard to understand sometimes when we are going through different seasons of our life. Taking the first step and realizing you may need to talk to a therapist, to guide you through these challenging times, is a positive choice in the right direction. I am here to provide a safe, and supportive place for you to become healthier and more aware of how to handle your current issues.

Michelle has been a Godsend. I feel that she genuinely cares about me as a person. She is a good listener, but also is good at helping me sort through what is going on. I'm grateful for her.
