  • Health Psychology


Michelle Toigo, PhD, is a UW Health clinical health psychologist.

Michelle sees patients for acute and chronic pain, brain injuries and trauma rehabilitation. She helps patients cope with stress related to a range of health concerns, including chronic digestive health conditions, traumatic medical circumstances or surgeries, challenging medical symptoms and difficult hospitalizations.

Using a variety of evidence-based interventions, including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based therapy, and solution-focused therapy, Michelle aims to maximize her patients’ quality of life.

As a strong believer in the power of the mind Michelle encourages her patients to use their personal strengths to manage their stress. Through a combination of mindfulness techniques, holistic practices and evidence-based therapies, she helps patients live well while coping with challenging medical diagnoses.

Outside of work, Michelle enjoys Madison summers, spending time outdoors with her family and visiting local bakeries and cafes.

I strive to help my patients overcome challenging moments and guide them through life-changing events or illnesses.
