Each of us experience a unique journey in life

Our life journey presents many challenges and obstacles. At times it is difficult to face this journey alone, especially when you don't have a support system. Therapy is a safe environment for addressing the challenges in life that seem unmanageable. A healthy therapeutic relationship based on genuine acceptance and unconditional positive regard can promote positive change. My goal is to empower you to take charge of your life, discover your purpose, and begin living a life in which you are emotionally, spiritually, and physically healthy.    -Michelle Riley
