Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it all into words is all that is necessary.—Margaret Cousins
Michelle was an absolute pleasure to be coached by. Her approach to the topic is fresh and feels more at ease with my soul rather than jerking myself in and out of a diet or extreme fitness routine. Talking about such in intimate topic such as eating and our bodies is something that requires immense trust. Michelle brings an essence that she is worthy of that trust with genuine kindness, love, and complete presence to the topic at hand and to myself as an individual.Michelle’s approach is not only individualized. It is realistic for long term health in body, mind, and spirit.
Michelle was a wonderful facilitator as well as a wealth of information. She helps you not only look at the various reasons as to why one turns to food for comfort but challenges you to dig deep and explore the real reasons why food has become a comfort. She provides a wealth of support and tools to help look beyond food and offers concrete suggestions on dealing with difficult situations without turning to food.As a women’s health nurse practitioner, I would have no hesitation referring patients to her who are grappling with food issues.”
After over 30 years of dieting off and on, I learned about the book Intuitive Eating while browsing through a weight loss forum. I floundered around with IE for about 6 months before meeting Michelle via a Facebook group. I had the pleasure of working with Michelle via telephone to further my recovery from dieting and self hate. I’ve been in many face to face therapy sessions and was a bit reluctant to meet via the telephone. All my fears were calmed! After learning about me, Michelle was extremely thoughtful in determining what would be helpful in my next steps on my no-diet and self-love lifestyle. Michelle is genuinely caring and kind. I felt very accepted by her and the private sessions were helpful for me. She provided recommended readings and short videos that have assisted with my new journey of being a intuitive eater! I am very grateful for Michelle’s experience, wisdom, and kindness.
I don’t know where to begin. My heart is really learning to focus more positively on listening to my body for what it needs and intuitive exercise. The persistent call away from dieting has been just what I needed. Michelle’s video chats have made all the difference for me.
The workbook club has helped me focus on the emotional and somatic aspects of Intuitive Eating instead of the technical. I was nervous about joining because of my many decades of feeling like a failure at an (imaginary) goal and judging myself for everything. Michelle has helped me start to give myself a break in all aspects of my life. I am grateful!
I cannot express how grateful I am for Michelle and the group. I had bought this workbook months back and just couldn’t get through it. When I saw that Michelle was starting this, I had to be a part of it! It has helped me to stay involved and keeps me mindful. Michelle is an awesome teacher/mentor. She has a way of articulating the chapters and her own wisdom that is full of understanding and compassion. If anyone is stuck, afraid or struggling, Michelle will guide you in a loving way. I’m so honored she is a big part of my journey, she’s the best!!!!
The workbook club has made me feel content and peaceful. Learning that my mistaken need for food is really opening up my awareness of my true feelings in the moment.
