I help adoptees live their best lives and harness the transformational power of their story. I’m here to help you get to the abundance you deserve in your life—and to align yourself in mind, body, and spirit with your truest identity.
I was in foster care, in the United Kingdom, and adopted internationally. I grew up with lots of questions about my identity. Questions, without answers, hurt. The hurt made it hard to love myself or anyone else. Then, I discovered the power of my mind-set, physical-set, and spiritual-set along the path of healing and becoming the fullest expression of me. Today, I'm an empowerment coach, adoptee advocate, encourager-in-chief, mama, and BFF who creates and motivates from my garden greenhouse. I want to help you feel fully alive as an adoptee. To feel good: mind, body, and spirit. And, to build the bridge that takes you to your dreams...starting, well, how about right now?
I am many things, and I bet you are, too!
One thing we all have in common is our desire to feel good, be happy, and live abundantly.
I believe that every adoptee is a HERO: Capable of Healing the pain points of adoption, Emerging from limiting beliefs, Reframing their experiences, and Overcoming any obstacle.
READY TO unleash your hero?
Start your journey to Heal, Emerge, Reframe, and Overcome with this simple assessment of where you're currently at: mind, body, and spirit...and where you want to be as you move forward. With any transformation, it's essential to know your current location and desired destination. With this information, we can begin creating a plan of action to help you arrive.
As adoptees, it’s vital to understand the importance of a healthy mind, body, and spirit—clearing any thought or habit that does not serve our ultimate desire in life. Let me coach you through the effective steps that have brought me sustainable transformation and joy. Step #1 is claiming that you're worth this time of self-focus.
30 minutes is all it takes to get started...
We hold the purest intention of supporting every adopted person along the journey to live at their highest and best, and to optimize their mind-set, physical-set, and spiritual-set in support of maximizing their dreams and desires. To empower their dreams, elevate their quality of life, and emerge into who they want to be.
“Adoption issues were not talked about in my family. Once I spoke with Michelle, I quickly felt safe to explore feelings, emotions, and thoughts.”

When Adoptees Push, Please Pull. This blog post has received huge response. It helps to explain the real reason why adoptees can sometimes "push," what the pushing really means, and how to best respond in those moments.
Coco & Olive: The Color of Love is the recipient of the 2019 Royal Dragonfly Award for excellence in children's literature. With playful canine characters and a rainbow of colors, the book explores adoption and family diversity. We believe it's never too early to talk about adoption and inclusion. (photo: @leahfrisosky)
