my Story

Individual, couples, and families experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma. 
Evening and Weekend Appointments.


“Fun Fact: I used to do summer stock and community theatre. I was the Wicked Witch of the West, my kids said the role was made for me.I also keep a quartz rock on my desk I found in my backyard for perspective. That rock was here long before me and will be here long after.”

I’m Michaela, and I help couples and individuals struggling in relationships.  My clients often start counseling wondering if their relationship can be improved or even salvaged since there has been a lot of criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling–relationship killers according to research.

I can assure you that there is hope. I use both the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy, research proven methods, to help you repair and strengthen your relationships.

Through developing a safe and comfortable therapeutic relationship, we will work to identify and resolve the barriers to reconnecting with your partner so that way you can move towards a new state of effective problem solving and thriving in your relationship together.
