Portrait of Michele Thorpe, Care Team coach

Michele Thorpe


Hello! My name is Michele. I was raised in Chico for most of my life and feel very fortunate to be working with young people and families in my very own community. I recently obtained my masters in social work from CSU Chico, and my education and work experience has focused on child/adolescent development, family systems, and mental health. There is nothing that brings me more joy than connecting with others, contributing to their growth and healing, and infusing fun and laughter into some of the more challenging experiences life can bring. As an individual committed to healing from my own mental health struggles and trauma, I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what we are facing, we can find comfort and hope in knowing that we aren’t in it alone. Every single person deserves to know they belong on this earth and to have someone remind them of this truth, if ever they find themselves struggling to believe it.

Healing is a journey, and small steps can lead to great things - especially when we have someone walking with us along the way. I thoroughly look forward to walking alongside you and your family, and am honored to play a small part in your big journey! Other things that bring me joy are my dog, my plants, being outside, longboarding, music, poetry, creating art and spending time with the people I love.
