She/Her

Therapist - MSW, RSW

In many families it’s mom’s that are holding it all together (not to say dads can’t play this role). When you start running out of gas and don’t have anything left in yourself… it makes it nearly impossible to support your family and to ultimately feel like “you” while doing it.

It is really important to learn how to refuel and recharge so that you can continue to be the best for yourself and your kids. You are as much of a priority as everyone else in your family. Therapy can help you get there.

I’ve been working with women and families for over 30 years. I describe my therapy style as eclectic; using modalities and philosophies from various perspectives unique to each client she brings into her practice.

I use many mental health techniques along with practical and real world tips that can be used in your busy day-to-day life. I believe we are the expert of our situation and having a safe space to be seen and heard is part of healing.

I am passionate about supporting moms through the many things that come up in motherhood like… mom guilt, anxiety, postpartum depression co-parenting and prenatal planning.

"Laidback, non-judgemental and approachable, Michelle understands the many benefits of having the right professional supports firsthand."
