Michelle and I have been working together for about 2 years now on a variety of issues regarding relationships, parenting (as a divorced father of two teens), and general life concerns...Over my 35 years of seeing a therapist (on and off) I have to say the Michelle is the best I’ve ever worked with. She’s quite versatile in her perspective and has provided very practical advice to assist me with various matters. Her disarming demeanor and practical advice allows me to, without hesitation, to wholeheartedly recommend her.
