Michelle is a great listener and does a great job of making her clients feel safe and heard. She validated feelings without ignoring strategies for improvement. I have been very grateful for her help.

I felt very comforting talking to Michelle it felt more like speaking with a friend than a counselor. She let me talk at my own pace and I look forward to continuing working with her.

Michelle is everything I was looking for in a counselor. Very attentive, patient, kind, and also professional and to-the-point. I feel blessed to have found her.

I’ve been with Michelle for a few weeks now and she is wonderful. She’s very attentive and understanding of what you are trying to convey. She listens and provides solid feedback that is relatable to the situation.
