My Path to Becoming a Therapist

Ever since I earned my Master of Arts in Psychology from Marist College in 2001, I've been on a mission to empower individuals to overcome life's challenges.. I've had the privilege of working with diverse individuals in both community and clinical settings. What sets me apart is my compassionate and authentic approach; my clients often find it easy to open up and engage in meaningful conversations with me.

What truly drives my passion is the transformative power of therapy and coaching. My style of practice is designed to help my clients break through their obstacles quickly. In fact, my clients often don't need to see me for extended periods because I excel at having them identify the issues holding them back and guiding them to transform their lives in a remarkably short time.

What to Expect When Working with Me

At the heart of my approach is dynamic, solution-focused counseling through guided conversations. Unlike traditional therapy, my sessions are more akin to coaching, but also include practices that are scientifically proven to be effective and tailored to your unique needs and goals. While every session is customized, they typically follow a structured process:


Identifying Your Primary Concerns

We start by digging deep to uncover the core issues that are affecting your life.


Clarifying Your Vision

Together, we'll create a clear picture of what you want to achieve, setting the path for your journey.


Empowering You

I provide you with practical tools and strategies that will enable you to take the actions necessary to achieve your goals.

My job as your coach is to have you win!

Continual Learning and Building Competencies

To stay at the forefront of therapy and coaching, I'm committed to personal and professional development. I have participated in training programs from various reputable institutions, but my most significant and enduring source of learning has been my engagement with transformational leadership training. I continue to take seminars to enhance my skills and experiences in transformational learning and coaching.

I'm particularly passionate about further developing my expertise to better support clients dealing with self-image or body image issues, grief and loss, LGBTQ and sexuality concerns, and caregiver fatigue. These areas reflect my commitment to ensuring that I can help individuals facing diverse challenges in their lives.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you, guiding you toward transformative change, and helping you unlock your true potential. If you're ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, I'm here to support you every step of the way. Together, let’s create the life you’ve always wanted.

Why Michelle

Your Safe Space, One Click Away.

Comfort and Convienience

Attend virtual sessions from the comfort of your own home, office, or anywhere.  Sessions are conducted via a secure, HIPPA-compliant Zoom line. You can easily join from a phone, laptop, desktop, or tablet*.  With no special software to install or the need to login to a portal, all you need is an internet connection and you can easily join your session by clicking the Zoom link that will be provided to you when you schedule your appointment.

I offer flexible scheduling options including evening and weekend availability and self-scheduling online. 


I’m proud to say that my clients don’t usually see me for very long. That’s because I am masterful at getting quickly to what is stopping them in life and having them transform that area of life for themselves in a short amount of time.

I provide psychotherapy and personal coaching to clients for short-term, solution-focused treatment using an evidence-based care model. Client progress is tracked over time, so I can confidently say that I consistently meet and exceed Clinical performance metrics and receive 100% positive patient satisfaction feedback.

Compassion and Commitment

Through active listening, empathy, and a non-judgmental standpoint, I create a safe space where we can work together to create an effective partnership in the therapeutic process. You will find that I am open-minded, insightful, and respectful. I believe everyone can and deserves to live their best life and have anything they want. I am committed to my clients achieving their goals and realizing their dreams.

Customized Approach

My style is dynamic, meaning that I adjust my approach to what will be most productive and impactful for you and your individual values and goals.

I will work with you to create both short and long-term goals, by first building a map of where you have been and where you are now and then creating a structure for getting where you want to be in your life. I get feedback from you about what works and doesn’t work to create a partnership that sets you up for success.
