She will work with you to get in touch with your feelings so you can experience life more fully. Using a plethora of tools and modalities, she can increase your awareness of patterns of behavior that keep you stuck in life and unleash you from the constraints of anxiety, depression, people pleasing, perfectionism etc.

Michele helps you incorporate and honor your unique spiritual beliefs in your therapy.  She is a Christian, a Buddhist and has studied Hawaiian Shamanic practices for many years.  Michele believes in the importance of meeting you in your spiritual identity and honoring your path to healing.

That’s her professional background. Just as importantly, she has walked the walk. Her personal journey has been driven by her own transformation of trauma into available energy and insight. She believes in this path because she knows it intimately. And she believes in her clients because she relates to their pain and messiness, to the hard work of making deep shifts, and to the joy of liberation that comes from that effort. As a practitioner, she is driven by deep and fearless empathy.
