I have known Michelle for many years and have benefited greatly from her parenting classes. Her desire to love and teach parents wherever they are at in their parenting journey is evident in the energy and inviting class environment she creates. Michelle offers skills that help parents in creating real connection with their children.

Michelle helps me to celebrate the areas I do well and challenges me to work hard to identify areas that I can improve. She helps me to step outside of my comfort zone to grow. Michelle has made such a difference in mine and my family’s lives. I am glad she is on this journey with me!!

My experience in Mom’s Group has been extremely valuable. It sounds a little sappy, but I feel like it was a literal answer to prayer. I got the email about the group and thought it sounded fun but not something I could justify spending the money on. At the same time I was constantly praying for help with my son. I kept thinking about your group and then suddenly it hit me that this might give me the help I was looking for–and it truly has. It has been worth every penny. So many things we’ve talked about have made a huge difference in my home and especially with my son. Even though most things were not entirely new to me, you’ve helped me apply them directly in my own family. I feel so much more hopeful than I did last summer.

I have had the privilege of being coached by Michelle over the course of several months. I still remember our first phone call. Just the way she talked to me was so kind and compassionate and I remember thinking, “I want to be like that”. Michelle knows how to listen and ask the right questions. I find our sessions invaluable and I know that working with her will help me continue on the path to be the kind of person and mother I hope to be.

There were difficult times over the last years and Michelle has always listened to my concerns, but has never been critical about how I handled a situation. Her goal is to lend support so that I can maintain a strong relationship with my children. She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. I appreciate her willingness to share her personal experiences with me which reminds me that I am not alone. I am happy to say that my relationship with my older daughter has never been better. The anxiety I once felt has been replaced with calm and excitement for the future of our relationship.

Thank you for the BeYoutiful workshop. I feel like it was money and time well spent. I asked each of my girls (more than once) what their favorite part of the camp was or what they feel they learned that was unique to them. Both of them told me, in their own words, that they need to be their own version of themselves, – – that if you weren’t going to be you, nobody else would and the world would be missing out on your uniqueness. They also let me know that even if they were having a rough day and it seemed like no one else liked them, there is always at least one person willing to be their friend. I loved that that idea was cemented into them. That during school if they find their current group of friends being unkind, they know there’s at least one person willing to be friendly to them. I think it helps the girls cope better with the ‘girl drama’. It gives them a more positive outlook and a solution to a problem instead of just allowing the bad thing to happen ‘to them’ with no control of a positive outcome. I certainly appreciate your time and efforts into putting this camp together. And I would highly recommend it to the parents of every girl 8/9 – 12.
Michelle’s coaching has been invaluable to our family. As a result of her skillful guidance, we have learned to see our children and our own selves through new eyes and to make some necessary changes in our parenting techniques and in our relationships. Because of her, we are experiencing more peace in our home and in our hearts. Michelle has a natural ability to assess difficult parenting situations and to suggest highly effective techniques and solutions that actually work. Perhaps her greatest quality is her compassion, which is always apparent and always genuine. The result of Michelle’s coaching has been literally life changing for us, and I could not recommend her highly enough to anyone who is struggling with their children or who would simply like to become a better parent.

My girls enjoyed the opportunity to get to know other girls in the area, have fun in a safe environment, and express themselves as individuals at your BeYouTiful workshop. They came home with ideas for other projects and games they wanted to play it was great to get their creative juices flowing. I think it also helped them learn how to have fun with friends other than the same things they always end up doing. They both loved it all and would do it all again.
