Keywords: Counselling, Trauma

Although trained and experienced in working with a broad spectrum of issues, my specialization is working with adults who are suffering from trauma, depression and anxiety.

I usually meet with clients on a one-hour basis (60 minutes). The exception would be the first EMDR session which usually lasts two hours.

Since I was a small child, I have struggled with fear and anxiety. Faced with the medical "cure" (antidepressants), I decided to try counselling. A friend of mine had been a client of Michele’s and had highly recommended her. Once I began seeing Michele and dealing with past traumas using EMDR, I was making progress. When I learned where the anxiety was coming from and how to change my thinking, I began to understand myself better. I feel as if I am finally at peace with myself and my past. What can I say? Counselling with Michele and EMDR works! Donna M.
