Coaching with me will feel like a collaborative place intentionally created for you to be fully seen and heard without judgement.
Asking and answering powerful questions as we explore your values, strengths, learning styles, goals, dreams. Together we’ll identify and build your sustainable foundations and strategic actions towards your chosen authentic life. We’ll also build your playful mindset along the way to help lift you up during the struggles, doubts and roadblocks. This dual approach to change supports a more resilient, joyful and genuine embodiment of your current and future self.
I know deeply the importance of having someone walk side by side championing, challenging and celebrating the wins with you through some of the toughest times. We’ll be sure to find moments of true joy along the way…after a while it becomes contagious.
I’ve turned my intentional renaissance lifestyle into one of my greatest assets.
Each unique entrepreneurial environment, non-profit experience, talented team helped to build my inner Micha-compass. The very courageous, community-minded, joy-filled lenses that have helped me and my clients successfully navigate this rollercoaster of a world around us.
My winding path hasn’t always been brightly lit.
I’ve had support from talented coaching along the way to help illuminate my looping turns and dips.
I discovered how some of my core values (curiosity, resilience, inclusion, creativity, playfulness and queer identity) were major driving forces in many important self-discoveries. I also realized my life was best lived when I trusted myself enough to personally design it.
I know the courage it takes to live an intentional joyful life designed by you.
The same techniques I’ve used to build my own life, I’m using to help spark a reimagining in the lives of my clients. Making conscious choices based on your values, your strengths, your dreams, creates a blueprint for your life that is both authentic in expression and rewarding for you to live.
I’m here to support you as you connect more of your dots and bring levity to your own courageous story.

“When things get messy in my life I’ve often turned to Micha. She has helped me w/ many challenges… Most recently through grief/loss. She assisted by holding light as I traveled a dark place, never letting me forget this light was there for me. She doesn’t judge me for whatever I'm feeling or what I'm going through, instead I feel heard, validated and steered forward. I always come away feeling inspired, hopeful. Micha’s empathetic, collaborative ways shine through every time. I definitely recommend Micha to anyone who needs help getting out of a rut of habit or thought. Her approach is fun, realistic and provides helpful accountability along the way.” -Sherra C. Los Angeles, CA USA
“Micha has the bright energy of a person who fully loves life and shares with it her abundance of curiosity and joy. For me, this has a calming and uplifting effect which allows me to open up to possibilities which I hadn’t even imagined. If you’re looking for someone who can help spark insight and a more aligned perspective in your life, this is exactly what you’ll get with Micha. She’s uniquely skilled in being both supportive and direct solely for the purpose of your growth. I can’t thank her enough for supporting me on my path!” -Devony B. Seattle, WA USA
“I’ve always known that keeping a sense of humor helps me through tough times, but in 2018 when big change and transition rocked every major area of my life, Micha showed me the real Power of Play. Sometimes it felt like clowning around, which was a welcome reprieve to the heaviness of the times, but we always found our way to what was most important. She helped me move from overwhelm to action, and self-care. Our walking sessions were my favorite. Micha helped me identify and better understand the things that were holding me back from my best, and then we playfully kick them into the Lake where they couldn’t limit me anymore. I am forever changed and maybe even a little more fun, thanks to Micha!”

“Our girls were five months when they first met Micha, or Mimi as we fondly refer to her. Micha really helped us adjust to the major transitions in our lives as new parents. She understood and supported our values as a queer, multiracial family. Our beliefs were aligned on the importance of lifelong learning, community building, and teaching our children empathy, respect for others and open communications. Micha's playful personality, along with her background in early childhood education, allowed her to truly meet our girls on their own level, with real engagement and joy no matter what their age. Her valuable insights and her ability to actively listen to what each of us needed reassured us that we chose the right person to help us navigate these transitions. It was wonderful to have Micha on our team -- her presence in our lives really alleviated the stress of the first few years.” -Paige P. Berkeley, CA USA
“Micha has me smiling after every session! Her positivity has a way of rubbing off on you seconds into a conversation with her. I often find myself talking with friends and family praising all that she has managed to help me with in such a short time. Micha has a natural ability to communicate with folks from all walks of life, young, younger and elder… For me, I find that she has a knack for making me stop, breathe and stay focused on the topic. I suffer from a level of anxiety that sometimes can consume my thoughts with negativity. Micha can see the situation from a different perspective and often is able to bring creative, kind, and playful ways of looking at it to help lower my stress levels. She pushes me to be the best I can be, in a kind and gentle way. She doesn't make me feel badly if for some reason I just couldn't meet the goals I’ve set for myself. Instead we adapt and move forward. Micha’s the best cheerleader to have on my team! -Christine M. Seattle, WA USA
