Presence Psychotherapy Testamonials

“As a Psychologist with over 25 years in practice, and a specialization in trauma, I can say that the Presence Psychotherapy training was the best I have ever taken.  The model is incredibly intuitive, and Michelle’s experiential teaching style created a setting within which the model was so naturally integrated.  I found, and am finding that this model creates profound experiences of integration that I believe surpass other models I have worked with. ” – Deborah Lubetkin, Ph.D.

It distill the essence of each and make them work synergically in ways that makes sense to the therapist and is very resourceful  to clients in their healing journey  because they can access experientially in vivid ways  that they are much more than the sequel of their traumas.”  Thanks Michelle! Jean-Pierre M. Psychologist.

“Michelle created an amazing new way of working with clients called Presence Psychotherapy. It is an integration of spiritual practice and somatic psychotherapy techniques.  Michelle is an excellent clinician who is able to teach with so much authenticity and thoroughness…. Presence Psychotherapy has helped support my clients to be in the moment notice their parts and be the observer while having a deeper connection with their own Self Energy. It helps them regulate and stay in the window of tolerance. This is where much of the healing can happen. She is truly gifted and we are so lucky that she used all her experience, insight, knowledge and Self to be able to teach and share this modality with us. I can’t wait for the book!!!! ” – Melani Levine, LCSW,  Presence Psychotherapy training participant
