Alleviate Suffering

Who is this for?


This may help you to feel calmer and understand layers of panic.


You may feel a renewed sense of hope when you see the blocks.


This may help you see patterns that bring love toward you.


You might crave vitality; seek clarity to regaining energy.


I'm Michele!

I was left for dead after an assault in my twenties. In my about page, I share the layers of suffering that event created.

If I can heal, so can you.  

I'm a therapist, mentor, coach, Zen-living advocate and yes, a trauma survivor. So, we might be on a different path but we are on the same journey.

Now, about you....

What is holding you back from happiness?

We think that we are the problem when we can't get over someone treating us poorly or having a traumatic experience. Those are normal responses. It shouldn't be a breeze to deal with toxicity! 

Blending strategies from transpersonal psychology and secular Zen Buddhism, we can embrace learning more about ourselves and tap into our potential. The goal isn't to simply heal, but to live a peace-filled, love-enveloped experience. Sounds great, right? But Now what?

How to go from suffering to vitality? 

If you feel like life has beaten you down, that you've lost motivation and feel overwhelmed, take these steps.
