Michelle’s priority in session is to create a safe space so that the client can feel seen, cared for, heard and supported.  Through a variety of research-based approaches, Michelle invites her clients to consider how their brain and body can work together to reach their goals. She helps clients learn the process of emotional regulation which involves allowing the body to sit with uncomfortable emotions, utilizing coping skills to lessen distress, and gaining insight into important information emotions convey. 

 

Often, women and adolescents with conditions such as ADHD have felt shame and confusion about why life can feel so difficult. Michelle educates her clients with the knowledge needed to have self-compassion and tools needed to gain order in what can feel like a chaotic life. 

 

With a combination of gentleness, fun and compassion, Michelle meets children where they are and allows them to feel seen and heard. Through play and art based approaches, Michelle allows children to express themselves through a language more familiar to children than words – play. For a parent, it is incredibly difficult to see your child struggle. Michelle values parents’ insight and involves them in the process so that they feel informed and equipped.


Clients appreciate Michelle’s ability to understand and empathize with difficult and complex concerns.
