Email & IM


Because Michelle is partially deaf and has an auditory processing disability, she typically does not communicate with clients by phone call or voice chat—all general correspondence is conducted by email or, if preferred, via scheduled meeting using instant messenger. (Please inquire about this in advance to make arrangements. Chelle happy to use the text chat feature of a number of platforms.) In the case of a client whose accessibility needs conflict with text-only communication, please reach out to negotiate an arrangement that can work for both parties!
