Michelle and her therapeutic approaches have been life changing for me. I first started going to her when I was separated from my spouse and later got divorced and became a single mother. We visited childhood and complex trauma I've struggled with for years and she really helped me get to the root of so many issues I had so that I could stop repeating them. Throughout the years of seeing her, I went through many changes and went through many tough times. Her support and non-judgmental atmosphere helped me so much not only to survive when I felt like I wouldn't, but also to grow and to be a better person. I can't thank her enough for empowering me on my journey and helping me to get through some of the most challenging times of my life.

We have loved michelle as a counselor. She gave us tools to use in our marriage that moved us to a better understanding of each other and helped to heal some wounds. We came in very distant from each other and, with her help, we are looking forward to our future together.

I have known Michelle for three years now (give or take) and she has done an outstanding job helping me with some deep internal wounds that have been robbing me for many years. She has been spot on in terms of identifying some very key issues within my core soul that I've been carrying around for most of my adult life. Michelle is sensitive, extremely caring, smart in her field and I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of a true professional therapist. Michelle has a way of making you feel very comfortable that lends itself to deep discussion and healing. Her love for God radiates throughout our sessions, and I truly look forward to our conversations each week. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking to achieve emotional and spiritual healing as one of the best. Thank you Michelle for all that you've done.

When I first met with Michelle my heart was heavy with fear and my mind was in a hurricane of confusion. Guided by her gentle questions, firm statements and solid wisdom, she showed me Truth. That Truth is what I stand on today. Thank you, Michelle.

"I can not say enough positive things about my experience of counseling with Michelle Rogers. During my first session with her I was  incredibly pleased to find that the Lord plays a large part in her wealth of wisdom. She was incredibly patient as she waited for me to work my way through years of living in dysfunction. Michelle helped me find the courage to make wise choices in my life, even if they required me to step out of the boat and trust God. As a result, I am living a much healthier life style. I am free of an abusive relationship, and I found the confidence that I needed to drive myself 1850 miles back home to Michigan to live again. Michelle is wise beyond her years, sensitive and kind, and she genuinely cares about her clients. Thank you Michelle. My time counseling with you will always remain a great blessing to me!  -Sarah, Venice FL
