“I do what I do because I want to be for others, what I so very much needed in my life. I don’t want anyone to take the long, lonely, painful path that I took. I want them to discover, understand, heal, and become empowered to move on and live their desired life. I help people do that. I know how because I've been there, and I've done it. ” Michelle
Her curiosity and desire to counsel stems from her own painful experiences and patterns. When she suddenly found herself a single mother who lost her home, and life as she knew it, as a result of a shocking life event, she made the decision to be strong for her daughters. Fast forward to today, her daughters are independent, thriving young women. Their wisdom, strength, and big-heartedness is something she is both grateful for and proud of.
Michelle spent years as a beauty and fashion professional, helping women feel empowered through their appearance. The one-on-one nature of the business allowed her to get to know her clients well. She styled them through difficult chapters and relationship trials. These experiences fueled her desire to understand why people do what they do and allow certain things in their life. Michelle sought knowledge and understanding to build on her experiences which turned into a preoccupation. Her passion for utilizing her experience and knowledge to help others continues to grow beyond her current coaching services. As a certified life coach with several additional certifications she is deeply committed to her research and work focused around toxic relationships and transitioning clients into new chapters of life. Recently she was accepted for a graduate studies program where she plans to become a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, LCMHC
