Reviews

Written by D.I. on Jan 07, 2020 after counseling with Michelle for 2 weeks

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.
