More about me
Years in Practice: 10
Hi! My name is Michelle and I'm a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) working in the state of Virginia. I am 15-year U.S. Navy veteran with over 10 years working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of concerns including PTSD, depression, anxiety and many different types of relationship issues. I have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse including Narcissistic Abuse, a particularly insidious form of mistreatment.
My counseling style is direct and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek help for life's complicated issues and to take the first steps towards positive change. If you are ready to take that step, I'm here to support and empower you.
New to therapy? Don't worry, I'll walk you through everything to ensure your comfort.
I look forward to working with you!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
