Michelle enjoys working with adolescents, adults and families.  She is experienced with an array of diagnoses including anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and end of life issues in adults.  Michelle believes in a solution-focused therapy where the therapist and individual walk hand in hand to find solutions for the complicated maze that is life. Many treatment modalities are utilized from Cognitive Behavior Therapy to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Other therapies are intertwined such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Michelle has extensive post graduate experience with individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as their family and/or caretaker. Michelle believes that working with the supports around the individual is as vital as working with the individual themselves.

She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), serves on the Community Advisory Council for the YMCA of the Rock River Valley, and volunteers as a Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) counselor at the Area Agency on Aging. Michelle believes that wellness is multifaceted and requires interweaving mind, body, and spirit to heal and enhance emotional wellbeing.
