Counseling offered by The Cavewoman Way is trauma-informed, meaning that Michelle has an understanding of various types of trauma and trauma's effects on the body, mind, and spirit. Her education, 12+ years of experience with trauma-impacted individuals, and additional training enables her to modify the services she offers in a way that makes them sensitive to trauma's potential impact on an individual, regardless of the issue being addressed in counseling. She also has training in trauma-responsive practices such as Somatic Processing, Trauma-Informed Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, the Shamanic Paradigm of Trauma Recovery, and T.I. Plant-Spirit Medicine.
When it comes to trauma-specific care, recovery is often a multi-dimensional process. There are clinical, medical/psychiatric, somatic, and spiritual approaches to working through trauma. Many people experience transformation through a blend of two or more of these. For clients who have a primary goal of addressing trauma, Michelle can offer supplementary service referrals as needed.
Spiritual & Esoteric Consultations
This unique service guides people, including children, in recognizing, connecting to, and understanding their spiritual gifts and experiences. Many of us are aware of our unique abilities and intuitive wisdom. For others, these abilities remain to be discovered (or rediscovered). From the child sees or feels angels, spirits, or ghosts, to the man who has clairvoyant or clairaudient abilities, to the woman who hears plants speaking to her, at so point people with such gifts or experiences are regarded as "weird", judged to be frauds, or told that what they are experiencing is not real. Sometimes it feels good just to share stories of these experiences. Michelle holds space for these stories. However, Michelle can also offer tools to help you discover or embrace your gifts, strengthen your abilities, and find deeper meaning in the experiences that you have.
