Traumatic experiences can trigger symptoms of anxiety, hopelessness, and fear. I specialize in EMDR therapy, a brain-based therapy that is scientifically proven to be effective in treating trauma, PTSD, and other psychological issues.
According to NAMI, over 40 million adults in the U.S. (19.1%) have an anxiety disorder. If you are someone who is affected by anxiety, I can help you grow in your understanding of what you're going through and help you learn positive coping skills to manage it.

Michelle is skilled at encouraging growth in emotional intelligence, fostering constructive introspection, and helping find positive coping strategies for uncomfortable feelings (anxiety, stress, anger, fear, etc.). I wholeheartedly recommend her. -K.S.
"I had a traumatic medical experience a few years ago and had a huge increase in anxiety surrounding medical issues as well as daily panic attacks. I started EMDR and within a few sessions I was no longer having panic attacks, and I still haven't had one since working with Michelle. I highly recommend EMDR and I highly recommend Michelle." -J.F.
