Michele is very understanding and open minded. She has a very friendly spirit and nature about her. She can make suggestions of corrections with out making it feel condescending or judgmental.

Michele in a matter of 2 meetings has given me hope and a road map to self discovery. I thought for a long time I was in the right direction only to learn that I was in a standstill not even moving. With her guidance and help I am already on the road to a new freedom. I am so hopeful and I hope she will continue to help me see what’s in front of me.
