TESTIMONIALS

 
 
Her advice is illuminating and comforting.

Michelle is wonderful with children; tuning into their needs and where they are at seems to come as second nature to her. She’s respectful, has a strong sense of her own boundaries and expresses those boundaries with patience, kindness and trust.

When asked, Michelle also gives incisive parenting advice. She easily grasps the core issue and her advice is illuminating and comforting. I’m always impressed by how knowledgeable and supportive she is.

I now have a deeper and more open connection with my children.

Michelle has special gifts she shares with parents and children. When you meet her, you will immediately know what I’m talking about. She exudes love and positive energy, and is a natural born teacher. For years I followed a lot of age-old traditions when it came to raising children. For example, I insisted my kids say ‘hello’ or hug someone even if they didn’t want to. I thought I was teaching them to be polite. In Michelle’s empathetic, thoughtful way, she opened my eyes to the messages I was sending to my children; one being that they shouldn’t trust their instincts. Now that my perspective has shifted, my children now feel seen and safe. They trust that I value and respect their thoughts and feelings, and therefore know they will not be forced to do anything that doesn’t feel right to them.

I’m so glad I turned to Michelle for help. I now have a deeper and more open connection with my children, which is so important as they begin to navigate the complexities of adolescence.

One of the most passionate, patient, and kindest teachers I have ever met.

Michelle is perhaps one of the most passionate, patient, and kindest teachers I have ever met. As a first time mom, I was skeptical bringing my three month old to a class. However, after a few weeks, Michelle’s introduction to RIE® was eye-opening and I couldn’t have asked for a better class!
