Congratulations on taking the first step to working toward resolution for challenges in your life.  Reaching out for help can be difficult, and I can provide a safe space for you to discuss, explore and process your concerns.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor for the state of Illinois, and I have 10 years of experience as a therapist.  I have worked with individuals and families of various ages, races, cultures, and presenting concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, grief/loss, LGBT, and life transitions.

I believe building a trusting relationship with my clients through empathy and acceptance is key to assisting them with their concerns.  I provide therapy based on my clients' needs to allow for self-exploration, offer useful tools to help work toward finding relief, and to create an optimum level of functioning.

I am passionate about helping others, and I look forward to speaking 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.

Michelle has provided support during some challenging times when I felt isolated. Her approach has been compassionate, flexible, and productive to my counseling and therapy goals.

I’m only a few weeks in with Michelle and I see changes in my life already. Major changes. I was a person that swore I would never waste time or money on a therapist and in my 31 years it is the best decision I have ever made. I absolutely love Michelle - there’s not one negative thing I could say about her. She is very responsive. Very educated and very welcoming. I feel like I have known her my entire life. They say you will click with your therapist when it’s the right one and I am so so so thankful that Michelle got placed in my path because I could not ask for a more kind , caring and compassionate person to help me along my journey with my mental health.

Michelle is awesome. Seems like I’m talking to a concerned wise friend. She’s very thorough with processing my thoughts and actively listens. I’ve only worked with her a few weeks and she’s already made an impact on my life and my perspective.

Michelle is very responsive and checks in with me regularly, I like this because it reminds me to take a minute and evaluate where I'm at. It's so easy to get caught up with life's many demands.

Michelle has been fantastic! After my first counselor was less than responsive (sometimes taking 3 days to respond) I was skeptical. With Michelle, you're going to get a constant outlet for support and understanding. A few weeks ago, I felt as though I was drowning in my own thoughts - and she really helped sort my feelings and helped me realize that I'm stronger than what I give myself credit for. Overall - it doesn't get better than Michelle!

I just started working with Michelle. She has helped me so much in just a couple short days. She is very responsive, understanding, and challenges me. She provides a safe and comforting space. I’m looking forward to working with her more. Thank you, Michelle!
