Hi, my name is Misha.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults in areas of self-compassion and gentleness with their bodies.My passion is psychophysiology - the way our minds, emotions, and bodies interact with each other, and how that impacts our relationships. It is a delight and honor for me to work with clients who are just beginning a new health journey, or with those who are stuck and looking for partnership in areas where they need fresh perspective and support.
“Health coaching gets to the heart of what providing good health care is about: acceptance, partnership, compassion, and helping patients feel respected and understood.”
- Dr. Amitha Kalaichandran via the New York Times
I am a nationally board-certified health and wellness coach with an emphasis in positive psychology training and approach. My national board exams were taken in partnership with the same organization that licenses doctors in the United States: the National Board of Medical Examiners. I have studied psychology and human services at Trinity Western University and I am pursuing a Specialization in Positive Psychology through the University of Pennsylvania. I have also been certified through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy in collaboration with the Institute for Functional Medicine. Additionally, I have worked as an instructor at FMCA training new coaches. In addition to seeing clients in my own private practice, I also offer mentoring appointments for new coaches and consultations for experienced coaches who are needing seasoned support in the work they are doing. This can be arranged on a one-time or recurring basis.
I offer a free consultation for you to ask any questions you have to help you determine if we are a good fit for working together. Please feel free to fill out the form below to schedule a consultation, or to ask any initial questions you may have. I work with many of my clients virtually through an online platform - allowing them flexibility and convenience for scheduling appointments. In-person sessions can also be requested.
