Michelle has been providing psychological services for over 30 years. She is registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario in the areas of Clinical, Counselling, School and Organizational Psychology. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario and the University of Alberta, she began work with Integrated Services for Northern Children in Kenora, travelling to rural and remote communities in northern Ontario, providing multi-disciplinary services for children and their families. She moved to Parry Sound, with her family, where she continued to provide diagnostic and therapy services to infants, children, adolescents, families and adults with Developmental Disabilities at Hands.
As retired director of Children’s Services and Lead Agency of Child and Youth Mental Health, she had the privilege of working with individuals, agencies, associations, and government advisories to plan for improved services for children and youth across the province. She considers it an honour to continue to work with clients and families now through private practice, providing professional, evidence-based services that are compassionate and safe.
As part of her practice, she is partnering with Lyndsey Stevenato Children’s Therapy Services, providing in-person and video-supported psychological services to infants, toddlers, children, and their caregivers.
