Up Close and Personal
Welcome! My name is Michele. I created this space to talk about life, relationships, and all the things that come up as we navigate through it. Providing a safe place to create community where you feel supported, validated, and seen. Let’s chat about topics that we think about but don’t always share out loud. I hope this is a helpful resource for you :)
I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT#124486) actively working in the field for 4 years in California. My experience comes from supporting clients from all walks of life (homelessness, at risk youth, community agencies, private practice settings, and adults in various styles of careers) and a wide range of diagnoses dealing with topics around coping with stress, mood, relationships, trauma, anger, and harm (to name a few). I utilize an integrative approach drawing from various modalities to meet the needs of each person in a different and unique way. I have a Master of Arts in Counseling from Palo Alto University and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from San Jose State University. I currently provide online therapy for individuals, couples, and families while I continue gaining my clinical hours for licensure.
