Team Since:


Michelle is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor at Montgomery Counseling Group. She is trained in EMDR and is a certified Grief Specialist. Michelle’s patients vary in age, and have all experienced some form of trauma  – many suffering from Generalized anxiety, PTSD, Autism, Behavioral, and Family Relational Challenges. 

DIEGO, Michelle’s Psychiatric Facility Dog, will help clients by  providing sensory-tactile pressure as they are processing tough emotions. He will provide comfort to older patients, easing their anxiety associated with being in a therapy office, and will help allow the therapeutic process to begin to take place. 

We welcome Michelle to the paws4people family, and look forward to the life-changing work she and DIEGO will do together!
