Professional statement

Oftentimes, people don’t notice burnout until they’re disconnected from themselves and the people around them. Michelle creates a supportive space where clients can recover from burnout and build new habits to prevent it in the future. As a result, clients can become the truest, most authentic version of themselves and find more fulfillment at work, in their relationships, and their lives as a whole.

Many of Michelle’s clients are social workers and people in helping professions. Since these roles involve giving so much, Michelle places an emphasis on creating boundaries and routines for managing stress and keeping well being in check. She also works with student athletes to help them manage the pressure they’re under.

Michelle creates a collaborative, casual environment for clients to explore, unload, and reset. Her goal is for clients to heighten their awareness around what they need to fill their cup. By doing so, clients can build lives aligned with their greater purpose.


Message to clients

Burnout has a way of sneaking up on you—especially when you’re navigating major life changes. Transitions like moving, changing careers, or starting a new relationship often represent the beginning of a new chapter. However, these periods often take you out of the routines keeping you grounded, which can cause you to feel overwhelmed, untethered, or unsure of your purpose. The next thing you know, you might have trouble sleeping, find yourself distracted at work, or feeling like you don’t have the energy that you need to be productive.

Trying to make a positive change in your life can come with many different emotions. As your therapist, I’ll be there to guide you through transition and burnout—both personally and professionally. Together, we’ll unpack the patterns of thought, behavior, and emotions that contribute to feelings like stress so we can create new, healthy coping strategies so you can become your best self. By releasing the habits that no longer serve you, you’ll be able to set up new routines that support your wellbeing and allow you to explore your own needs.
