Michelle listens. Michelle actually cares, and always starts her sessions with “...so what’s new” with a huge smile on her face. She does a great job at keeping the session positive and about growth, rather than focusing on what is causing the pain. She may not diagnose you, but she certainly does not allow you to diagnose yourself. She doesn’t believe in allowing negative labels and stigmas stay in your mind. Instead, she’ll recommend books, videos, and movies to inspire you. Simply amazing!

Self discloses too much and wants you to do all the work. When you are trying it is not good enough. Said I wanted to not live and she said awe don't feel that way type of statements. This is not a competent therapist and she does not know how to terminate therapy. I did not feel like she cared to understand or hear me not everyone can communicate how they feel. she follows no theory that will make you feel supportive it's just solution focused and doesnt ask what helps you to speak and talk

This provider told me she was considered an expert in trans issues However when I showed up to my appointment there were many red flags. She said if I turned into a youtube freakshow she would dismiss me as a patient. She referred to trans celebrities and former patients as the wrong gender. She shamed me for seeking informed consent hormone therapy. She was judgemental in a manner that no psychologist has ever been with me. I would only go here for LGBT care if it was the only option.
