You’ve been carrying so much, for so long.
I can help you lighten the load.
You expected life to get easier over time, but that hasn’t been the case. You’re the emotional center of the family, and the pressure to take care of everyone else is relentless.
You’ve lost yourself along the way. You feel disconnected, angry and sad. You long to reconnect to the person you are outside of the role you play in your family. You want things to change and you need relief.
Your partner has been drinking. A lot. You’re doing more than your fair share of the work to keep your family going, and you feel frustrated and resentful.
You love your partner, and you want things to change. You don’t know how to move forward. You feel helpless.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own.
Hi! I'm Michelle Deely, MA, LMFT
In our work together, you are the priority. I am warm, compassionate and lovingly direct. During our sessions, I am active and fully engaged; I often use humor to help us make sense of the ridiculous ways life can test us and surprise us. You can count on me to show up authentically every time we meet.
As a mother of three, living and working in San Francisco, I have real-world experience with the daily struggle to be everything to everyone. I understand how caring for ourselves while caring for others can feel impossible.
