Marriage & Family Therapist Trainee
Supervised by a Licensed Professional
Michelle sees clients at our Brea and Santa Ana locations.
Becoming a therapist is borne from Michelle’s life journey. With an undergraduate degree in physical therapy, Michelle worked with individuals navigating journeys of physical loss and restoration. She developed a passion for counseling from her own work in therapy as well as through volunteering in her church’s counseling ministry.
Michelle has encouraged and supported women of all ages and stages along their paths of healing and the development of healthier relationships. Over the past 12 years, Michelle taught God’s Word through an international ministry that required her to shepherd women leaders. It was here that she felt the call to enter the field of psychotherapy to walk alongside those struggling emotionally and spiritually. Michelle enjoys working with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents utilizing her strengths of empathy and listening.
