I'm Michaela, impresario of life
Psychotherapist, best selling author, meditation teacher & top iTunes podcast host
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 Nevada without running water or electricity. I believe happiness is attainable for everyone, but it's a constant reset, there's always something or someone trying to steal your happy factor.
I'm an avid adventurer, having traveled to 20+ countries, and self-proclaimed 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. In my spare time, I'm often hiking, doing yoga, gardening, golfing or reading. I live with my husband and young son 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, we'll work together to help you speak your truth with grace and live a courageous life of authenticity. 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.
I offer telehealth or in-person sessions at The Healing Shala (Cool, CA). Currently accepting couples and individual women. Everyone is welcome to attend 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, and a Master's of Arts in Psychology. California State Licensed Psychotherapist #90280.
