Clinical Information:    
Michelle has worked as a counsellor in private practice since 1993. She sees her role in the counselling process as a collaborative one: helping clients to effectively transform challenging issues that may have been causing them to feel stuck in certain parts of their lives. Michelle works with clients to identify key areas for change, and then helps them develop the insights and build the skill sets required to achieve their goals.   

In terms of working with couples, Michelle employs the tenets of Imago Relationship Therapy to help create a safe space for couples to share their feelings with one another. She helps conflicted couples to diffuse reactivity in their communication and to build empowering ways of sharing perspectives and emotions, so that each person experiences feeling deeply heard and understood by their partner AND that they are able to do this for their partner, in return, as well.  As a couple's conscious communication skills develop, previously challenging topics can increasingly be addressed with neutrality and curiosity leading to new insights and a deeper, more compassionate and rewarding connection becomes possible.
