Authenticity and unconditional acceptance are the fundamental qualities Michelle cultivates in her relationships with clients. She tries to create a space where you can be vulnerable, validated, and gain room for self-compassion and change. Her approach to therapy is holistic, though she is drawn to attachment theory within a multicultural framework. Michelle resonates with the work of Brene Brown on shame and vulnerability. Esther Perel is one of her “mentors” regarding love and relationships. She has 16 years of experience working with various issues from depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief/loss, and working with those in the health care professions.
