Life is a rather fascinating journey! I’m grateful that I do not know anybody who’s walked through it in a straight line. Sometimes the journey is light and full of joy, other times painful and full of weight. While every person is unique and no two people’s experiences identical, when we explore ourselves deeply, we discover many similarities and a good dose of common humanity. And the deeper we explore, the juicier the discoveries!

“The joy is in the journey.”

You’re reading this page. I’ll assume you want more or less of something. You want answers to your questions, or help finding your own answers. You want to facilitate a shift in yourself, relationship, family or group. Our egos convince us we can do this all ourselves, but I don’t know anyone for whom that’s true. You’ve reached the point of inviting another voice or perspective to facilitate the shift. Good for you!

  • “Michael is the person you want to work with if you want to make real changes in your life. He is not full of fluff and he won’t take five sessions just to talk about your past, he is going to get to the root of the issue and help you resolve it. What is great about Michael is that he is able to describe things to you in multiple ways, he wants to make sure you “get” what he is saying so he is great at offering real-world examples and analogies to help illustrate what you are working through.”

Let’s discover your uniqueness and humanity, together.

11 Reasons Why You Should Never Hide How Weird You Are -Providence Life Coaching and Reiki Counseling - 5 lessons in life from dr-seuss1Our work together will be guided collectively. You will be in charge, I’ll offer direction. When you are ready to “leap forward,” I will stand with you and make sure you have something that feels like a net, but I will most certainly let you leap and support your need to be healthy and well.

Our work will take courage. Growth and change are not always gentle or smooth; it can feel like walking in a maze, being on a wilderness expedition, or traveling a very bumpy road. Our work will also require honesty. We have to commit to honesty to make it work.

My Coaching Services

Reiki Counseling

Reiki Counseling is a method of accessing deeper knowledge, wisdom and personal obstacles that are typically hard to recognize in normal consciousness. I was trained as a Traditional Usui Reiki Teacher Master to use Reiki Counseling when working with others as a safe, grounded and non-invasive means for supporting personal growth and development.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching is geared towards working from this moment forward, which may or may not include working through childhood, traumatic or life-changing experiences leading you to today. Life Coaches typically work with you for a somewhat brief period to meet your goals and intentions or seeking support and guidance from a professional.

Meditation Training

If you are feeling moved towards beginning or strengthening your meditation practice, I may be able to help. For me, the aspect of a daily meditation practice that I am typically most grateful for is the experience of being present. I offer Meditation Instruction for beginners as well as ongoing training for those seeking a deeper practice.
