Professional Supervision and Coaching



Please call for information and pricing for supervision and coaching

"Supervision with Michelle has helped me grow professionally and personally.  She has helped me gain insight into myself and how that translates into the work I do with clients.  She has helped me gain confidence in my skills and has been an ally as I try to establish myself in private practice.  She is thoughtful, patient, and a highly skilled clinician.  While supervision is an investment of time and money, I feel I have gained invaluable knowledge through my work with Michelle." ~ JI
