Gratitude

I've been fortunate to help women who've experienced all types of trauma from childhood sexual abuse to sexual assault to domestic violence, child abuse, car accidents, narcissistic parenting, tours of combat, military sexual assault, and natural disasters.

Many heroically overcome the past and create a present full of high energy, spirit, and focused meaning in jobs they love, relationships they cherish, bodies they enjoy, and health they sustain.

Several have shared their gratitude with me, which only makes me love my job even more. 

Due to the sensitive nature of survivorship all names have been altered in the testimonials below to preserve the anonymity of my clients. I hope their happy words inspire you to move forward on your own healing journey.

What I am about to say may possibly shock you. Within one 90-minute session with Michele my nightmares were gone. Within 4 sessions the flashbacks had disappeared. I was sleeping like I had never slept in my life and felt like a million bucks.

 

I understand that this may sound farfetched. If you told me this months ago I probably wouldn’t have believed it myself. For this reason I insisted on writing a testimonial. And so, I say this from the bottom of my heart: If you are out there suffering, searching for help – or maybe you have abandoned the idea, as had I – consider working with Michele. She has truly given me my life back and for that I am forever grateful.

MORE GRATITUDE

Deborah

You were very instrumental in helping me get to where I am.... Thank you for the time you invest in my life and my healing journey. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything you’ve done and do! I always know you are there cheering me on and available if I need to talk through something. Thank you! I have seen more change this year than ever before. 

Mindy

Cannot thank you enough for your compassionate support and quick follow through...  From the bottom of my heart I am endlessly grateful to you for guiding me toward setting myself free from the trauma plus your support on saying a healed self already exists. 

Julie

I want to thank you, Michele, for this great platform that you have created. You saved me from the abyss and greatly contributed to my understanding of my condition. I'm on the hard road, slow but sure recovery is possible by your insight and inspiring strength. Thank you! 

Love you! 

Jody

You were my saviour. I remember the dreadful time of frantically scrolling thru the Internet for solutions. Then I saw you and thought, "Here is someone who has recovered, so that means I can too!" You probably saved my life. I had so many dark and difficult nights. I did 8 months of intensive trauma therapy but in truth your story as a peer was the most helpful part of my recovery journey. That's why I felt strongly I needed in gratitude to add my voice to the existing narrative.

Petra

I haven't had anybody who understands what I'm experiencing to be able to help me understand. It’s been very confusing as I didn't know what was happening or how to stop it. Thank you for taking the time and for caring to help others. You helped me better understand what has been happening to me recently. Have a good Thanksgiving and know that you helped me to have a better one. 

Michelle

I still hope one day to come see you in Florida!  I’ll be sure to keep in touch with you.  Thank you for investing in my life. I have a thankfulness that words cannot express for the gift of a new life that is evolving. It’s so hard to believe it is real!! 

Maya

I wanted you to see this. I'm in South Carolina on business. My company has paid for the Visa so that I can come visit them for two weeks…. I'm with a colleague who knows the truth. He's here because of MY work. I'm as geeky as I've ever been. Not the same geek but this one gets trips around the world. You helped to make this happen. 

Janice

Oh My God!!!! I just want to let you know that you have a gift (you probably already know this). Everything I hear you say, EVERYTHING, hits home in some sort of way. It may be something I don't realize or something I feel alone with. But it feels good not to be all alone even though I am choosing to be by myself. 

Mary

I am grateful wayyyyy beyond words. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for *being* in this world and sharing *who you are* with me!!! 

Jenny

I just wanted to add my voice to the many thank you's you must receive daily. Finding you has changed EVERYTHING for me. I feel you holding my hand through every step of my recovery. I can't express the depths of my gratitude for your work. 

Kristin

I value your approach to healing, Michele. You encourage people to listen to their wound, find the right band aid that brings healing. That encourages me. You encourage me.  

Sonya

Thank you, Michele, for reminding me of my intuition. I need that. Also, thank you for all you do for us survivors. You have given me a compass in the trauma fog. 

Hannah

I really can't say enough about your research and analysis. I have been dealing with an old and very serious trauma for more than four decades. I now see that all the books and all the therapy just dealt with symptoms. Miraculously, you have managed to explain causes in a way that I have never seen before. For the first time in my adult life, I have hope that I can permanently put this behind me. I think God put you on earth for that purpose, has been consecrated to the enormous benefit of many.

Lynn

Michele, I have gotten 12 hours sleep for days now and I just want more. I can’t tell you how much better I feel…I feel like the first time in my life that there is a tomorrow and it will get better, too… I am seeing things very clearly for the first time in a long time.

Tori

I can’t thank you enough for giving me a life I can finally start to enjoy… Every day seems to be getting better… You pulled me out of the dark and despair; that awful, awful place of pain. I want to finish going through that door and shut it and lock it never to be opened again.

Betsy

Thank you so much for the … session today.  I really needed it. I left infused with a sense of clarity I have been blurry on until now.  I appreciate how your objectivity and insight always sends me a little further into the recesses of my mind and propels me a little further down the path I need to be on.

Jane

You know, Michele, you are right: some things have changed and I didn’t even notice. The pain hurt and despair of losing my sister is gone. I don’t think about it every minute of every day. Matter of fact, I bet I only think of her once every two weeks and when I do the pain and hurt is not there. I want to be like that with EVERYTHING. I never thought I would be there and here I am, WOW.. I am amazed at that. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Nora

I think what you did for me was several things:  You started me thinking that self healing was possible. You have provided a variety of personal and professional information to help authenticate that.

 

You have shown me that I don’t have to feel alone. Your input provides me with a way to do some research which helps me adjust my old way of thinking. It's nothing but positive from here on out.

 

My greatest discovery was when I hit a downer and was able to adjust my way of thinking and regain the up feeling I had prior….. I felt Empowered.  

Jen

The only reason I agreed to have sessions with Michele was because I DIDN’T have to talk about my traumas.  The night of my 1st session, I slept soundly for the 1st time in 15 years.  I’m extremely grateful to Michele, and hope others with PTSD find comfort in her sessions.

Nancy

I know that I would not be where I am today if not for you and your advice. You had faith in me and that helped me have faith in myself. You have been inspirational to me.

Jackie

I just have to reach out and tell you that your work is literally changing my life. I simply can’t find the proper words to express both my enormous gratitude to you and your help and how much you are helping me… I have searched... and found nothing remotely as healing.

 

You provide me with an absolutely essential healing tool… I love how you are dedicated to recovery and healing as opposed to coping. I love how you encourage me to thrive not just survive. I love how you remind me that its hard work — and that healing is not a straight line but a jagged line going upwards steadily.

Raina

When Michele started to get entangled with me it became part of the process of healing which I encouraged. She’s been a bit like the Zen Master of PTSD who kinda helps me to go places I don’t want to go.

Elizabeth

Michele! You warrior you!  I am uncovering more and more valuable resources in myself to cultivate a life..the life…I am suppose to live–Thank you.

 

You truly have a remarkable healing gift. You’ve been on this journey with me a loooong time….you helped me salvage what little was left…..  There are no words to express.

Georgie

I wouldn’t be where I am today without your help and support. I’m sure some woman in the future will be very pleased with all our work.

Arielle

You have touched me in so many ways and I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for your advice, your inspiration... for everything you have and do. I really am grateful to have met you and have you in my life.

Sharon

Thank you for a wonderful session. You are a gifted healer and I feel so blessed that our paths crossed. You gave me exactly what I needed. Thank you so much. 

Maria

I don't know where to begin with the help you have given me. I literally was in a deep hole and couldn't climb out. Through your help I realize there were other options and I had been in a bad space since the death of my mom at the age of two

 

Wow! I am truly blessed to have met you. I am grateful and love you forever for your help and kindness.

Rose

Before, everything felt chaotic.

Now, I can see a path to wholeness and wellness.

 

You have healed my raw emotions and held my hand through it all.

 

Thank you! 

Holly

Michele, I just had to share: two people have commented on how very much more like myself I am now. One was completely independent of the other. I can't remember their exact words but the gist was how very "Holly" I am tonight. They've never made comments anything like that before! 

I never doubted it but now I KNOW your are a freakin' shamanic GODDESS!
