Meet Michelle, a compassionate and experienced licensed mental health therapist (LCSW) based in sunny Florida. With over 25 years of dedicated service in the helping profession, Michelle's journey began in Chicago, where she worked extensively with individuals facing mental illness, domestic violence, divorce, gang violence, homelessness, immigration, and various forms of trauma.
Michelle's educational background is impressive, as she earned her bachelor's degree in school social work from the renowned University of Illinois at Chicago. Later, she pursued her master's degree in clinical social work from the same institution, further honing her skills to provide top-notch care.
Throughout her career, Michelle has served as an integrative mental health clinician, offering comprehensive support to individuals, families, couples, and groups from diverse backgrounds. She has proudly worked with the LGBTQ+ community in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, as well as in Puerto Rico and the captivating island-town of Vieques.
Michelle's passion for healing and empowering others led her to establish the Love Language Healing Center, LLC, and she actively collaborates with other mental health institutions to ensure the best possible care for those in need.
Embracing a holistic approach to therapy, Michelle seamlessly incorporates various evidence-based techniques into her practice, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, psychotherapy, reality therapy, strength-based therapy, and mindfulness practices. Her goal is to inspire clients to tap into their full potential, fostering a profound sense of well-being and a truly fulfilling lifestyle.
When Michelle isn't dedicating her time to her practice or collaborating with fellow mental health professionals, she can often be found immersed in her garden, engrossed in a good book, practicing yoga, or daydreaming about her next ocean adventure.
