About Michele

Body work helps so much with trauma. I have nearly 20 years of experience helping clients understand their mind-body connection but I have only recently become a certified counsellor. My training is in working with trauma, and the problems that disguise it, such as depression, anxiety, and addictions. I use what works for each client but I am trained and qualified to practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. I practice and teach mindfulness and acceptance.

I also have lifelong experience coping with borderline and narcissistic personalities, in environments of alcoholism and substance use. I understand the dynamics in those relationships, be it with family, spouses, friends or workmates. If you are in a relationship where there is narcissism, you probably really need help and validation from someone who truly understands. I hate the term co-dependent, but if you think that’s you, you will definitely benefit from grieving the losses, and learning how to love yourself. Please reach out. There is help.

If you're hurting inside, you may feel lonely and alone with a pain and suffering that has only gotten worse over time. Your life seems to have gotten smaller.

You worry about what you do or don't do, how others see you, how you feel.

Maybe you don't like yourself very much. Relationships have you feeling confused, broken, scared, lost or just numb. 

You don't know how to go forward even though you've been trying and searching for help.

You ask yourself, "Will I ever get better?"

You are not alone and you don't have to fix this by yourself. I help you connect with your strengths - the ones you forgot, downplay or ignore. I give you a safe place where you can heal, feel a sense of belonging and trust, a place which allows you to learn, grow and walk a different, happier path. There are tools to help you get out of this. Let me help. I know it's awful to feel so stressed, defeated and confused. I also know it's a big step to trust another person and to believe they can help after all you have been through. Until now you've felt unable to reach out. It's a leap of faith. What would it be like to feel better now? Check out my website. I can help you now. peaceofmindcounselling.com
