Michelle Priolo, Professional Counseling Intern
Michelle is currently completing a Masters of Arts in Counseling at Phoenix Seminary, with a goal of becoming a licensed professional counselor. As an intern at Lifesong, Michelle is under the supervision of seasoned licensed therapist and has received training in variety of therapeutic orientations. Michelle brings a cognitive-behavioral and emotion-focused perspective to the counseling room. She has many years of experience working with adolescents and has also worked with adults struggling with addiction and severe mental illness. Her work with teens and adults has increased her life-long passion for helping others get through hard times. Michelle strongly believes that God is the ultimate healer, and as one who understands suffering, He walks with us through both the good and the bad times. Michelle enjoys working with individuals who want to deepen their relationship with God, as well as with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, body image, self-worth, and broken relationships.
Michelle loves spending her free time with her fiancé as well as with animals. Michelle also enjoys the outdoors and creating art, specifically drawing and painting. Michelle hopes to one day include both animals and art in her therapeutic services.
