"Michelle and I quickly built a natural rapport, which set me at ease. She is a compassionate listener who also possesses keen insight. She helped me to see underneath what was preventing me from moving forward in my career and guided me to find solutions. Coaching is exactly what Michelle does, she's in your corner rooting for you the whole time!"
"When I started my journey, which included life coaching as part of my evolution into a more whole self, I had a vision of what I believed coaching could be. I knew I needed something that had depth beyond my own and a level of expertise I could not achieve with my current practical knowledge. I had heard many negative things amongst friends and acquaintances expressing how coaching is disappointingly simplistic in approach and something one could fulfill on their own. I still believed however, that there was a Coach who was as complex and evolved and ever expanding individual as I to help me overcome my blocks and the life hurdles that keep me from prospering. Michelle embodied everything I believed coaching could be and more. I did not know coaching could be so unraveling and resourceful and was the utopia over the mountain I had envisioned."
