Doctorate in clinical psychology specializing in Emotional Intelligence (EQ) coaching.
Michelle is an EQ coach based in San Francisco. She holds a doctorate in clinical psychology and has been trained in a variety of clinical settings including medical centers, VA (Veterans Affairs) hospitals, community clinics, inpatient care facilities, and non-profit agencies treating survivors of torture and genocide.

> Why do I continue to make poor choices?
> Why am I constantly dissatisfied?
> Why is it easier to take care of others and neglect myself?
> Is there more to life?
> What happens when I still love but am no longer
attracted to my partner?
After almost 10 years of working with clients, it has become strikingly apparent that we are all in the same boat: life.
Even without mortgages, break ups, illnesses, and lay offs, life is hard. I had a client once tell me that we all deserve a round of applause just for getting out of bed because sometimes, even that can be an overwhelming task.
