Michelle Fowler is a clinician-in-training to become a Licensed Clinical Counselor. She is a former high school teacher, and is working to complete her Master’s in Clinical Counseling with Palo Alto University. Michelle was inspired to go into the counseling profession after researching the best ways to help her own children work through their challenges. Michelle has personal experience with good counselors helping with traumatic experiences, couple’s issues, and supporting her children through challenging times. These wonderful professionals set an example for the great things counseling can do.
Michelle brings over 20 years experience in the U.S., international and multicultural environments to her work with couples and families. She enjoys applying that wealth of experience to her counseling relationships. Michelle believes that the best place to start is to build on the strengths of the individual. Michelle believes that true wellness comes when all parts of us are healthy including; our biology, thoughts, actions, and emotions. It is possible to make small positive changes that have a great impact on our well-being.
