Michele is a licensed therapist in the State of Indiana.  She works with both individuals and couples offering both in office and telehealth sessions.  Her clinical work is systemic and relational in nature and is reflective in her LMFT license designation (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist).  Michele earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Wheaton College and later her Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Christian Theological Seminary.

Some of her areas of specialty are women navigating transitions, shifting roles, and feeling overwhelmed or disoriented and couples who are desiring greater connection and closeness.  She has specialized training in the areas of Brainspotting, Imago Therapy, the Enneagram, and the Gottman method and works from a collaborative approach valuing the needs, expertise, and inherent worth of her clients and their stories.  This is reflective in the welcoming, grounded, thoughtful, and warm way she interacts with them.  She welcomes and values people from all backgrounds including race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, gender, and more.

Outside of the therapy setting, Michele is married to her husband of almost 25 years and they have 3 daughters.  They have considered Indianapolis their home for nearly all of their marriage except for a few years spent pursuing the mountains and adventure in Colorado.  She loves running, exercise of most kinds with other people, the outdoors, travel, meaningful conversation, and pursuing joy and connection in the ordinary moments of life–especially as she navigates her own experience of transitions and shifting roles as a wife, mom, friend, daughter, sister, and woman.
