A Little Bit About Michelle...

DBT CERT.png

I’ve lived on the south shore my whole life (well, except for my first 5 years). I'm Mom to 2 amazing adults, who married outstanding humans, and I have 3 dogs! My best friends from childhood are still my best friends, now! So lucky! 

 

WHY DID YOU BECOME A THERAPIST?

 

Honestly, my goal was to be an attorney. We all know the Universe has a way of putting you on the right path. Over and over I kept getting pulled back to the field of social work. The deeper into school I got and the more experience in the field I had, the more I realized I was right where I was meant to be! One of the best feelings in the world is to see a client reach a goal, create new, effective behavior, or have one of those lightbulb moments you hear about! Amazing!
