I'm Michaela, impresario of life
Psychotherapist, best selling author, meditation teacher & top iTunes podcast host
about me - in the first person
As Carl Jung said, "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who we truly are."
I'm an ever-learner who grew up in the rural Sierra Nevadas without running water or electricity. I believe the key to living a happy life, is learning how to speak your truth with grace and live a courageous life of authenticity. This requires checking in with yourself, often, and exploring old patterns that aren’t serving you.
I'm an avid adventurer, having traveled to 20+ countries, and a Boho Mom who loves all things metaphysical as well as poetic quotes. I'm a Sagittarius (fire-sign) and an ocean-lover, so a complete oxy-moron. I’m currently working on my pilot’s license at Adventure Flight in Lincoln in a Piper SuperCruiser (tailwheel). It is exhilirating, terrifying and exciting all at once, but I feel incredibly empowered experiencing a different perspective on life. I also homeschool my young son which has been a fun new adventure for our whole family. In my spare time (haha), you’ll find me hiking, doing yoga, gardening, creating pottery or reading. I live with my husband, our son and a homestead full of furred and feathered creatures in Northern California.
As a psychotherapist and life coach, my approach is collaborative, together we'll help you gain the internal clarity you need to live your best life. I believe a story heard is the path to healing. I don't want to help you take your power back, I believe you've had it all along, I just want to help you reconnect with you so you can start living your life in ways that serve you better.
If you aren’t quite ready for counseling, my guided meditations can be found on InsightTimer, and are typically 5-10 minutes of insightful relaxation. My podcast is another great tool to help you draw peace and happiness into your life and features celebrity guests from around the world.
2021 is bringing a new style of therapeutic offerings for me as I migrate away from the world of insurance. I want to better serve my clients with inclusive packages. I now offer a 4 session, Empowerment Package (for women) or a 6 session Couples Communication Package, send me a note to learn more.
I offer telehealth and in-person sessions at The Healing Shala (Cool, CA). Everyone is welcome to attend my workshops. Announcements for upcoming events (workshops, book signings) are made exclusively via email, sign up for the eJournal to ensure you get the most up to date info. These events are for people who are looking to take their self-development to a new level.
Bachelor of Arts in Journalism Communications, Master of Arts in Psychology. California State Licensed Psychotherapist #90280.
