About

I use psychotherapy to alleviate symptoms of emotional distress (such as anxiety or depression). I use life coaching to maximize personal and professional potential towards the results you want for your life and future. I help my clients to gain more fulfillment by living intentionally. My mission is to help people use emotional challenges as opportunities for self-growth and evolution. My holistic approach (includes yoga, somatic psychology, meditation and hypnosis) to help my clients improve confidence, relationships and career.
I offer a program of services to my client that combines life coaching and holistic psychotherapy. This structure supports client's in being accountable to developing the path of their most fulfilled life, while empowering them to expand growth after our work is over.
10 years ago, I had hit a growth ceiling in the management roles I was employed in. 5 years later, I had built Moksha Living in Washington D.C from the ground up. Currently, I work with leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs to align with purpose by reinventing self-worth and cultivating significance.

"As a practitioner myself I am sensitive to working with coaches and therapists who lean heavily on "assessing" and "advising" which tends to undermine my internal wisdom. Michell did neither of those things. Instead, Michell created space for me to explore ..."
