Michelle Hertrich, Certified Professional Coach Relationship Coach and Consultant I have a bachelor’s degree in family and child development and 32 years experience in social services, working for the past 23 years with survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence and sexual assault. I do Coaching, Counseling, and Consultation Counseling deals with current emotions brought on by past issues, often traumatic experiences. One definition of trauma is anything that is less than nurturing. Many people are unaware they’ve experienced trauma and that it is getting in the way of self-love and happy relationships. During consultation I’m teaching clients skills and information to assist with increasing self-confidence, positive emotions, and improved relationships. For the past 14 years I’ve taught clients how to love themselves, decrease shame, have healthier relationships, and thrive after trauma. Coaching involves removing visible and invisible roadblocks to something we desire that we do

It takes an enormous amount of courage to reach out and make a commitment to yourself and for that I am so glad you are here. If you are ready to get back on a path that leads to clarity, peace of mind, healing, and reaching for your full potential, then you have come to the right place. We are not meant to find our way alone. We are wired for connection and I am ready to help. I approach therapy and coaching, with the idea that, the things you tell yourself day-in and day-out has a huge effect on how you experience your life. Our thoughts affect the way we feel and the way we behave. I use a blend of evidenced based techniques and approach each client as a whole, considering, the mind, body, and spirit connection. As a therapist and coach, I like to bring my personality into the work that I do with my cl
