About Me

I am a Iowa and Illinois Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and National Certified Counselor. I am a member of American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and American Association of Christian Counselors. I have been working in the mental health field for 5 years now and doing clinical work for two years. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I have experienced with helping individuals who suffer with depression, anxiety, addiction, family dynamic issues, relational conflicts, stress, trauma and abuse, personality issues, spiritual and military issues. My specialty is working with couples and helping them build a better healthier relationship with each other. I work at a private practice in Red Oak, IA part time.
My counseling style is warm and understanding. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution-focused, mindfulness, and family dynamics. I believe in providing the best approach to meet your needs and will do my best to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. My schedule is open for members to schedule session on Monday and Thursday. If you are wanting a session on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday, please out to me and I will work with you to get you scheduled.
I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

Written by K.A. on Sep 14, 2020 after counseling with Michelle for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Michelle has been helping me through a very rough time and has made so many accommodations to my crazy schedule. Her insight has made this process more healing each and every time I have a session with her. She has made herself available to me during times where I feel like I have no one to turn to. Someone you can click with instantly, thank you!
