“Every human being has inherent strengths and unique individual qualities. It is my goal to create a safe environment in which we can collaborate to build upon these strengths and work through challenging emotions to experience recovery and healing. Together we can create an individually tailored approach that embraces your strengths, supports you in identifying underlying feelings or needs, and empowers you to find your voice.” Michele
