Anytime you hear a comedian talk about their therapist and you are like, "Man that therapist is really funny but also has an extremely valid point", that is Michelle. She is not afraid to point out the absurdity of any situation you find yourself in and make you feel sane for the feelings you do have. She has a big, present personality and is able to dial in to yours so that she can speak your language. Once I started, therapy was not something I dreaded every week, even at the worst of it emotionally, because I knew Michelle would find a way to help me back up without any judgement. She always knows when it is the right time for a metaphor, a personal story, or to just needle you in the right way to get you to look clearly in the mirror. And good lord she has the patience of a saint. Because looking back, she gave me the answer I was looking for in the first month, but I had to take my time to get out of my own way over the better part of a year to actually hear it. She never forced a solution but offered it in kind until I was ready to take it. I can't say enough good things about Michelle. Thank you for guiding me to peace.

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.
