About this pro

I am a transformational coach specializing in the emotional wellness, personal development, and empowerment of my clients.  Over a long career as both a corporate executive and consultant for start-ups, experience has taught me that it is our inner dialogue that affects the quality of our life more than the external conditions and challenges we face.   Our experience of life is a reflection of the choice we make in how we show up in each moment.  However, many of us are not even aware that we have that choice.  Without an empowered awareness, our internal dialogue is generally in the past tense, a review, and repetition of our history.   And while we desire to better our lives, our actions toward change from this perspective can give us results that are frustratingly the same and not what we wanted.  This cycle can create anxiety, depression, and a sense of hopelessness over being able to affect our own lives positively.  Transformational coaching focuses not on what actions to take, but a new way of being and perspective that opens us to a whole new dimension of our lives.  Transformation coaching may not change what we think about, but it will change how we think about it.  Directing new choices and actions that enable us to co-create the life in which we thrive.

I am passionate about helping others discover their personal power, freedom and potential to connect with life in a way that allows them to live out their full potential.

    Michele is an absolute gem! She is incredibly thoughtful and helpful with all her feedback and insights. I would recommend her to anyone! If you are looking to grow as a person and understand your feelings more then Michele is the one!

    Michele was a "divine intervention" for me at a time I really needed that help. Along with being personable, supportive, and genuine, Michele provided me tools to use between sessions and beyond. She is very generous with her time and attention. She will give you as much "homework or personal work" as you might want for yourself. After years of therapy, I value my time with Michele over any other traditional therapy I have experienced in the past. It was a different approach and one that worked in seeing new perspectives.

    Michele is a gifted coach with a refreshing perspective. In my life as an entrepreneur and athlete, she has helped me develop the tools needed to maintain lazer focus on my goals and in building the life I've always dreamed for myself. Her ability expose the habits and patterns of thought that are debilitating to spiritual growth is astounding. I owe so much of my happiness to her coaching. I know that without her I may be running around in the same patterns that were holding me back from being truly successful and happy.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The most important part of working with a new client is finding out if I truly can help them, for it is my purpose to be impactful and help my clients make the changes and live the lives they desire.    The first step is the discovery session in which we work together to figure out what is the outcome that the client wants and what he/she feels is the obstacle in the way.  Then we agree on on outline to how we will achieve this.   I am here to be the accountability coach, to keep my clients on track, to listen, to be a cheerleader, to be the tough love when needed, but most of all to help my clients see and believe in themselves in a way that they are living life from an empowered, centered perspective.
