You are not your mind, your thoughts, your familial fate, nor your circumstances or conditioning. My goal is to help show you how powerful you are and to impart grounding tools that you can utilize for the rest of your life. We can break cycles, we can find the courage to shine and be seen as we truly are. When one person does the work to heal and grow, it affects everyone around them. If you're reading this, then you've heard your own inner whisper encouraging you that it's time to grow and expand out of the comfort zone and into the present. You absolutely can have the fulfilling life you’ve always wanted.
Thriving is your birthright. I'm happy to shine a light for you and guide the way.
I'm known as "The Nervous System Whisperer" for my simple but profound and highly effective techniques to feel grounded and safe. I am also known for guiding clients to discover and cultivate their courage to shine and be seen in their full authenticity. In more recent years after completing the Inherited Family Trauma Facilitator Training by author and researcher Mark Wolynn, I've delve deep with clients helping them to break the patterns of generational trauma they've inherited. I firmly believe anyone who is earnest can get past their familial trauma and thrive. Additionally, I am a certified aromatherapist with a thriving essential oil business utilizing Wisdom of the Earth essences.
Friends have told me I am known for my sense of humor combined with warmth and my midwestern flair. You can often find me practicing yoga, hiking, spending time with friends, and taking walks on the beach. I love being a mom to my daughter Laura Marie and being a loving wife to my husband of over 29 years, Robert. I love art journaling, photography, and I'm a big foodie too!

I 'm up before the sun!
Get to know me below! Perhaps we have a few things in common?
Shortly after, Robert and I began facilitating our own sold out workshops, including teaching thousands of people at SAG-AFTRA. We are all about educating people on how the mind works in terms of their thoughts and emotions, and essentially how to get out of their own way and stop self-sabotaging.
I was at a workshop in San Diego where my husband Robert was assisting the facilitator. I was there just to attend when I noticed a woman in the back visibly overwhelmed. I went over to her and helped her through what she was feeling. The next day, she came up to me and let me know how much my words and presence had profoundly helped her. It wasn’t long before the facilitator of that workshop hired me! That was the beginning of my coaching career.
I was doing commercials, print modeling, small independent films, and theatre in New York City. I was wearing many hats: mama, wife, actress, working as a receptionist and as an assistant to a producer.
I was raising my daughter as a single mom until she turned five. That’s when my husband Robert came into our lives. Meeting Robert put my life onto a whole new trajectory in every amazing way possible.
I had my incredible daughter Laura Marie at the age of 21.
I went to Central Connecticut State University as a theatre major. At 19, I also spent an amazing summer at Yale for acting.
This is a picture of me when I was riddled with shame and a fear of being my authentic self.
I had the pleasure of being interviewed live by the wonderfully charismatic Cheldin Barlatt Rumer on her show This Is It TV. I am always thrilled to share my beautiful work with the world.
I am currently living in sunny Los Angeles where I love spending time with my husband and friends, hiking, and dining together over yummy organic meals. I’m coaching clients from all over the world, and I just launched a new e-book “The Nervous System Whisperer”!
Stay tuned for new workshops and my soon-to-launch podcast, “Courage to Shine with Michelle Colt.”
