Counseling Philosophy

Counseling is designed to be a unique setting where a person, family or couple is able to reflect on their experiences within a safe environment. When people are able to feel truly supported in therapy they work towards self-actualization and meaning. As a therapist my goal is to provide everyone with a productive experience that includes significant support, intentional challenges and a place for reflection.


It has been a privilege working in the counseling field for over ten years with adults, adolescents and families. In that time, it has become clear that the match between client and counselor is extremely important.


It can be difficult to get an understanding of a therapist by seeing a picture and reading a short paragraph. If you think I maybe the right match for you and/or your family please feel free to call anytime for more information.

Counseling with Michele

Have you been feeling tired, angry, unheard or just dissatisfied with your life, your career or relationships?  Maybe you have been reflecting on life choices, family drama or parenting challenges and want to explore how you can make your life easier.  Are you or someone you know struggling with addictions? Or are you a teenager struggling with the unprecedented challenges of social media, bullying, sexual pressures, parental tensions or the absence of a support system?  If any of these ring true for you, I believe working together, you will discover the courage to create the life you desire!


I integrate a blend of Cognitive, Behavioral, Gestalt, and Solution Focused tools and techniques (and let’s not forget humor), to support individuals to make sense of who they are and their ideal path forward. You will be encouraged to explore and achieve more peace in your life.


“Nothing will work unless you do.”

-Maya Angelou-


Take the first step.  I recognize this is not easy, but we both know being “stuck” is no fun either.  I look forward to meeting you and supporting you in building your best life.

About Music Therapy

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidenced-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.  Similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy, music therapy is an established health profession and consists of using music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive, social, spiritual, and musical functioning for patients of all ages.  Music Therapy works across the lifespan (i.e. infancy to end-of-life care) and can assist people in times of need.


Populations often served by music therapists include:


•   Hospitals

•   Substance Abuse Programs

•   Nursing Homes

•   Psychiatric Treatment Centers

•   Schools

•   Forensic Settings

•   Hospice and Palliative Care

•   Private Practice

Common Goals of Music Therapy

COMMON GOALS OF MUSIC THERAPY


Music Therapists use music as an intervention, primarily live, to facilitate changes that are non-musical in nature. Music therapy programs are based on individual assessment, treatment planning, and ongoing treatment evaluation. Through the assessment process, goals and objectives are created (with the patient, family, or treatment team) to target the specific needs of the patient or group.  Goals created with the music therapist may include but are not limited to:


•   To Improve Communication

•   To Enhance Memory

•   To Alleviate and Manage Stress

•   To Express Feelings

•   To increase Social Skills

•   To Improve Healthy Coping Skills

•   To Increase Quality of Life

•   To Promote Physical Rehabilitation
