Michelle has been in the field of child and youth mental health for over a decade. She has a B.A. in Psychology and Masters in Counselling Psychology. She is the Clinical Director of Counting Butterflies child, youth, & family services, where her and her team specialize in holistic interventions for individuals facing mental health challenges.
Her current practice is focusing on supporting children, from preschool-aged to early adulthood, with High Functioning Autism, ADHD, and Tourette’s Syndrom; specifically those who are also experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, and/ or obsessive- compulsive symptoms. She works with children who are having difficulty regulating their emotions, such as those who are easily angered, and children with anxiety disorders. Michelle also provides counseling for parents and couples supporting children with special needs to help them achieve a more harmonious lifestyle, improve communication, and decrease caregiver burnout by fostering a more balanced lifestyle.
Michelle’s approach includes blending evidence-based practices such as Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness Practice, and Emotion Focused Therapy, with other holistic practices such as biomedical interventions.
