Let's talk energy!!  Energy psychology (EP) is a mind-body approach to understanding and improving human functioning.  EP focuses on the relationship between bioenergy systems, neuro and electro physiological processes, and mental functions involving thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behavior.

I am trained in Energy Psychology.  One aspect of that is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), often referred to as tapping.  It involves tapping specific points on the body, primarily on the head and the face, in a particular sequence. While doing this, the person focuses on the issue that they wish to treat.  

I am also trained in  Chakra Energy Assessments.  This helps to assess and support your energy and identify what is happening in your energy and potential blocks to your healing.  This can be done as part of therapy or if you are just wanting a Chakra assessment and not therapy I have options for that as well.

My chakra assessment with Michele was a wonderful experience! I thought I had a good idea already as to my areas of imbalance, but Michele provided me with new insight into areas that needed healing that I was not aware of. She took the time to break down her interpretations, provided helpful feedback, as well as intuitively confirmed areas of need as well as progress in my life. Her interpretations were thoughtful and self-affirming, and provided me with great guidance on how to heal my areas of imbalance. I will certainly be utilizing her skills in the future!

EFT Tapping helped me to heal my trauma that years of talk therapy alone could not touch.  Michele is very good at explaining the science for my very linear brain.  I also have done Chakra assessments in therapy and was amazed by how much it helped especially on a day I did not have words to express what I wanted to tell her.  One assessment helped me to identify what was keeping me stuck so we could work on it in therapy.

Michele's energy assessments are informative and fun! I didn't know what to expect for my first assessment, but Michele was able to provide me with helpful information, and her style and energy put me at ease. I would recommend Michele's chakra assessment services for anyone wanting to gain insight about themselves and where they are at in life.
