Hello, I am Michelle, Mental Health Counselor in training at Traveling Light Counseling in Port St. Lucie, FL.
I have been studying humans through movement for the past 10 years. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology, specializing in exercise, nutrition, and wellness. I am a Certified Exercise Physiologist, which focuses on how the body reacts to physical exercise, in both short and long term, and how the body adapts to ongoing exercise and changes in routine. I also specialize in Postural Alignment and am a certified STOTT Pilates instructor. The STOTT method aims at restoring the natural curvatures of the spine and rebalancing the muscles and surrounding joints.
I currently attend Northwestern University, studying for my Master’s in Counseling, and will be a Licensed Mental Health Counselor once my credentials are complete. A LMHC is a person who works with individuals and groups to promote optimum mental and emotional health. Such persons may help individuals deal with addiction and substance abuse; family, parenting, and marital problems; stress management, self esteem; and aging.
I also own a business called Nature’s Alignment. We are a Holistic Health and Wellness company offering New Wave Therapy that offers alternative and holistic methods to treat pain, dysfunction, and enhance performance. We believe in empowering our bodies to heal itself, rather than masking dysfunction with drugs, surgery, and/or habitual negative patterns.
My capstone project at Northwestern is focused on the Psychodynamic Theory and PsychoSomatic Response, discovering how our habitual negative patterns, early childhood experiences, unconscious mind, and trauma physically manifest in our bodies and minds, revolutionizing the mind/body connection, it’s all connected, we are all connected.
My counseling style is the perspective of a co-pilot, walking with individual’s on their path and guiding one to look within and bring light to the answers within to solve their own dilemma and/or pain. I help others intuitively feel what the body is saying to understand what the symptoms/illness/problem is saying. The mind is reflected in every part of the human body, and through the body we can get in touch with the issues that have been repressed, denied, and ignored.
The body indeed keeps the score, we are what we think, the body believes every word we say, and our body indeed speaks our minds. Book a virtual low cost session with me today! Spots are limited!
Let the adventure begin to a lighter and brighter tomorrow with the unpacking of today's struggles in order to receive tomorrow's blessings! We are honored that you have chosen Traveling Light Counseling to meet your needs!
