I've been meeting with Michelle once a week for 1.5 yrs. In this time I have grown in ways I could not believe possible. I am grateful for the patience and understanding that Michelle practices in each of our sessions. There is a comfortabilty that exists that opens the session to personal growth and development. If you are struggling with social anxiety and are ready to take the next step forward then Michelle is a incredible therapist.
Michelle is an extremely professional and friendly person. Connecting with her, which is really important to me, is easy. Her training and knowledge are clearly evident during our interactions. She explains things in a manner that is clear and easy to understand. You get a real sense that she genuinely cares and is giving you her all. My expectations have definitely been exceeded. I highly recommend her.
Michelle Ilyayev is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a no nonsense approach to psychotherapy. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety, and I’ve worked with many therapists in the past, often feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere. While working with Michelle, I’ve had exposure to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and it feels much more like science. We’ve developed goals, and we work towards those during every session, her ability to communicate steps to improve is wonderful, and it’s fantastic to see and feel small gains towards better mental health. I’ve worked with Michelle in a one on one therapy setting as well as group therapy. I highly recommend her as a mental health therapist.
I’ve been seeing Michelle for over two years and I must say, I can’t picture not speaking to her every week! She’s always motivated and pushed me to be my better self. I highly Recommend her.
If you are having trouble finding a therapist who is going to actually care and tell you how it is - not sugar coat with fairytale stories of theoretical psychological nonsense. This is where you need to go. I am a client for life!
Shes the best. I could confide in her about anything and I don't feel judged. I appreciate her patience and al the tools she has given me.
