Michelle Marcelo

My name is Michelle Marcelo and I love working and helping people in every way possible. I'm bilingual in spanish and english and I'm here to help those feel comfortable in their own space. I have many experience working in higher education, and in the non profit world. I was previously a community college counselor helping students in their academic journey, and currently work for a district foundation by helping community colleges raise funds for student development programs. I've served families and students in underrepresented communities, so that I can guide them to the right resources and opportunities.

As a first generation college students, I've had many challenges that I had to overcome. I've had to become resourceful and put myself through college because my parents immigrated to the U.S. and had little to no education. In a way I'm thankful that I've had to learn many things on my own because now I can relate and help others who are just like me. I have a Master of Arts (M.A.) focused on Counselor Education and serving underprivileged students at community colleges. I'm now pursuing my LPCC work so that I can become a therapist in the near future.

My goal is to help every individual with the proper guidance and support through their journey. I want them to feel safe, and comfortable in the way they feel and what they would like to express. I have experience working with clients examining their emotions and patterns through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and identifying behaviors. My approach is to identify the behaviors and change those patterns that may be causing distress in their life. I hope that I can provide helpful skills and resources to make each clients life better.
