Michele joined Healing Grace Counseling Center as an intern in January 2019. We are excited to have her a part of our team. Michele received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from UMKC graduating with honors in May of 2015. Immediately following, she began her master’s program in Mental Health and is expected to graduate at the end of Summer 2019.
Michele knew she wanted to be a therapist after taking her first Psychology class in high school. She spent many years reading, studying and navigating her own life with the help of a therapist. When the time was right, she went back to school and decided to truly pursue her passion. She enjoys working with young adults to older adults of diverse populations and gender identities dealing with anxiety, depression and trauma. She has a person-centered approach, believing each client has their own answers within them. Her goal is to provide the tools and assistance in helping them discover those answers.
Michele is the mother of three adult children and when she is out of the office she enjoys traveling and sailing with her husband. She also enjoys learning about other cultures, writing and watching movies.
