Living in the countryside of the Minnesota River Valley, Michelle has an appreciation of the earth and nature and the deep wisdom, abundance and beauty therein. She believes that like nature, each person is comprised of innate wisdom, abundance and beauty. She also knows that the earth is a great role model in balance and renewal, sustaining practices and honoring the present.
Insight and a natural ability to resonate with the intense energy of the world is a strength that allows Michelle to access truths which may be hidden to others. With this unique strength, she encourages clients to focus on a life-enhancing path. Michelle knows it is futile and depleting of energy to focus on scarcity, fears and weakness. Therefore she coaches with a generative focus, using energy for cultivating strengths, mining for more of what’s working and expanding what is possible, sprinkled with lightness and fun too.
