As an experienced Connecticut Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling I have experience in helping clients reduce, navigate and prevent anxiety, panic attacks, OCD symptoms, depression. I also have experience in treating trauma and in reducing reactivity to triggers of trauma. I also counsel clients with mood disorders and can help clients learn how to self regulate. I have worked with adolescents, college students, adults of all ages, on all sorts of issues including: relationship issues, grief, career issues, self esteem, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, loneliness, adjustment issues. I know a lot about Christian religions, and I am a Roman Catholic. I love that St. Paul tells us not to worry in the Bible but to pray instead. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach mainly combines Person Centered, Adlerian, and cognitive-behavioral. I have an eclectic approach and will work with you in a way that I feel will best help you to accomplish your goals. I am married and have an adult son and daughter and have worked with couples and families as well as individuals.

Michelle is amazing counselor. She understands how to handle the root trauma of situations and also knows how to implement cognitive behavioral therapy to deal with fears and all. I am so grateful for her. I have worked with 4 therapists prior and she’s by far the best. She’s a great listener, provides sound therapy, and can give real life counseling and coaching.
