Michelle digs relationship: relationship with earth, self, others, and the infinite. She believes that strengthening these relationships is the heartbeat of emotional and spiritual healing. As an ecotherapist, she works with groups and individuals in nature to explore, confront, contemplate, wrestle with, and celebrate the breathtaking (…and often maddening) nuances of being human.
Born and raised in Small Town Ohio, Michelle moved to Seattle in 2008 in search of something she craved but couldn’t name. She obtained a Masters in Counseling Psychology, became certified in Energy Medicine and as a Reiki Master, and found reprieve in the lush wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. You can find her leading heart-centered hiking trips locally and internationally. She fancies herself a Rock Goddess: equal parts Led Zeppelin, Amethyst, and Olympic Peninsula.
