MEET MICHELLE

Welcome! I'm so glad that you're here!

M.S.W., R.S.W.

Mental Health Therapist

My intention is to share the importance of wholistic health - the mind, body, and spirit. I have learned through my schooling, professional, and personal experience that there is no "one size fits all." We are all uniquely made - just like you!

Not long after graduating and spending most of life in Windsor, Ontario, I ventured off to call Calgary, Alberta - my home. In my free time, you will catch me going for hikes, spending time with my adorable French Bulldog, going to a yoga class, and a good cup of coffee while listening to some new music. 

Therapeutic Approach

TO FAIL. TO FEEL. TO HEAL. 

OVER AND OVER AGAIN. 

My approach to therapy is built upon that every individual is uniquely different. I enter the therapy room with a foundation of person-centered, trauma-informed, and strengths-based approaches. I utilize several models of therapy into my practice including:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Narrative Therapy.

I also have a strong philosophy of the importance of mind-body connection. I offer Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) for clients with a history of trauma. A.R.T utilizes a combination of techniques to reprogram the way distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.
