Michele spent six years at one of the largest child and adolescent outpatient program in NJ moving through various clinical and supervisory roles, including Program Director. Within those six years, she additionally opened her own private practice, True Triumph Counseling, and went back to school to train at the Ackerman Institute of Family Therapy in NYC. John proposed to Michele in the summer of 2017, and in 2018 Michele merged her practice with Blueprint and became a co-owner alongside with John, and continues to supervise other clinicians.
Michele specializes in child and adolescent family therapy and parent coaching. When kids shut down or act out, it leaves a parent lost as to what’s going on with their kid, what to do, and how to talk to them. Through gaining a strong rapport with the whole family, she helps them acknowledge what’s going on, and build skills to talk to each other differently. Basically, she helps families understand each other and like each other again.
When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Michele obsessing over animals, eating sushi, watching friends, and listening to Bon Jovi.
