“Michelle has been with me every step of the way, holding me (virtually) as I felt everything allll the way through. I was able to lean into my vision of my future that slowly came into focus. She walked beside me, shining her flashlight into the darkest, scariest places and showing me it is safe to advocate for myself. She helped me find my way home to my whole heart.” Kim R., (Seattle, WA)
“Michelle is like a tour guide to my nervous system, humbly and intuitively naming patterns that reveal themselves and we gently explore them together. There is levity, depth, intimacy, and regulation in our work together which creates a sense of safety to explore and be curious. After walking on eggshells for over a decade, I’m on solid ground again.” Gwen D., (San Fransisco, CA)
“I had no idea how I’d be able to create a life without my spouse. I didn’t recognize the shell of the person I’d become. The day I reached out to Michelle, I began to reconnect with my essence and then slowly, my power got turned back on. I lost myself in my marriage and found myself in divorce coaching.” Natalia N., (Burbank, CA)
