Michelle gently guides clients to uncover insidious patterns of thought and behavior so that they feel more capable of consciously producing positive, meaningful change in their daily lives. At the core of her work is the notion that each client and couple arrives with a distinct set of lived experiences on which currently held beliefs formed and evolved over time. By building insight into historical sources of present relational dynamics, Michelle hopes to assist her clients in cultivating a stronger sense of agency and more fulfilling interpersonal relationships.
