About Me

Hi, I’m Mechelle.

I know life gets hectic with work, family, and other obligations. But I believe showing up for yourself and getting support can be transformative — not just for you, but for everyone your life touches.

My approach to therapy is straightforward: I respect your time and aim for focused, impactful sessions in a warm, understanding environment. Your comfort and honesty are crucial. In fact, I thrive on your genuine feedback.

If you choose to invite me into your story, it’s an honor I won’t take lightly. Together, we will dive deep to the root of your challenges to spark meaningful change in your life.
