PLEASE NOTE: Michelle is not currently accepting new clients. Apologies for any inconvenience.
My calling is to support people to discover possibilities within themselves and find hope, strength, courage, meaning and connection with others as they move from darkness to light. I believe people can change, heal, and grow regardless of where they are at in their lives and even under difficult circumstances.
I am a registered clinical counsellor, registered nurse, advocate, and educator. For close to twenty years, I have dedicated my work and volunteer efforts to supporting people from many walks of life, cultures and spiritualities, both in Canada and abroad. Working in the hospital and community settings for over ten years, I have had the privilege of walking alongside people with acute, chronic, progressive, and terminal illness. In the last year, as a clinical nurse educator, I provided education on palliative care and serious illness conversations to health care providers. Currently, I am also working as a community nurse case manager for adults with developmental disabilities.
I am known to be compassionate, authentic and understanding of cultural differences. My approach to therapy is evidence based and personalized to your needs. I provide brief and depth counselling and draw from a number of approaches, including Adlerian, person-centred, cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, narrative, existential, mindfulness, and sandtray.
