My name is Michelle Rozek (she/they)...

I'm a queer Mind Body Spirit Healer, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner,

Mindfulness Nature Therapy Guide,

Shadow Worker,

Highly Sensitive Person 

and Clairsentient, which means that I have the ability to sense the subtle energies surrounding me.

I facilitate holistic healing and wellness through reconnection to Earth & body, regulation of the nervous system & releasing unprocessed trauma. I support individuals to listen to their body's wisdom, explore what remains unseen and wants to be seen, build nervous system capacity and live in greater alignment with their inner essence (Self).

Do you long for a deeper connection and sense of trust in yourself?

Do you want to experience more ease, presence, and balance in your life?

Are you ready to explore and heal the personal, intergenerational, and collective traumas held within your body?

Testimonial 2021

My therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in the belief that what ails humanity is the disembodiment from our own bodies and a deep separation from the greater body of our living Earth. From this perspective, I work with clients on all levels of being including the personal, relational, and planetary.

  • Trauma (personal, intergenerational, collective) 

  • Attachment wounds and re-parenting

  • Internal Family Systems (inner critics, protectors, polarized parts, wounded child, etc)

 

  • Relationship power dynamics and interpersonal communication

  • Intimacy & trust (rupture/repair process)

  • Healing wounds of humanity (rejection, shame, guilt, repression, denial, separation or abandonment) 

  • Emotional regulation 

  • Survival strategies and resourcing 

  • Climate anxiety, alienation, grief 

  • Ritual

  • Shadow work

TESTIMONIALS​

"Working with Michelle is a whole body, whole mind experience - she doesn’t separate one from the other and I leave our sessions feeling more well-rounded and grounded in myself and in the space around me. She’s taught me so many helpful tools and different embodied practices for taking the things we work on in our sessions into my daily life... Before working with Michelle I had a lot of judgment and shame around certain parts of myself which kept me from being able to understand them or to be able to show up for them. Ever since working with Michelle, so many doors have opened with my ability to show up fully for the person that I am and the history that I have, and the ways I want to move throughout this world."

- Jess

"Working with Michelle has been truly eye-opening for me. Her guidance and intuition have helped me discover many valuable lessons about myself. Each session I’m in awe of how she holds space for me to process my experiences and transform my words into insightful and actionable steps forward in ways I never could have seen on my own."

- Monique

"I have learned a lot about myself and my processes through Michelle’s guidance.  I have become more attuned to my body and my mind and have felt empowered to trust myself and make difficult decisions with her support. I have become more involved in journaling and recording my feelings and processes. I have also become more aware of other people’s energies and cognizant of how I want to interact with them and started to set boundaries for myself and with the people around me."

- Veronica 

ABOUT MICHELLE

I believe that we each long to feel deeply connected to the mysterious self within, to the shared coherence within our relational biospheres, and to the sensual, felt-experience of Earth. I believe that human separation from Earth is the root cause of our collective sense of alienation, disembodiment, anxiety, greed, mistrust, and related fears. 

 

I believe that your body is wise, that everything you need to thrive already exists within you, and that as nature, you carry the capacity to heal, grow, transform, and evolve. 

My purpose is to serve the healing of earth by supporting your healing journey. Through my therapeutic practice, I create a space for you to slow down, come into presence, listen to your body, attune to your inner nature, deepen somatic awareness, uncover unconscious patterns, digest unprocessed trauma,  cultivate compassion for your humanity, and heal the wounded aspects of self.

 

I am gifted with multi-sensory perceptions including, clairsentience - the ability to feel hidden, energetic subtleties - which allows me to see what is often invisible to most.  I also carry the ability to recognize fractal geometric patterns playing out in human behavior and relationships. Finally, as a shadow worker, I am able to gently guide, support and walk with you into your shadow holding the most sacred space for you to meet the parts of yourself that you fear the most.

MY STORY OF HEALING WITH EARTH

Like many of you, I grew up with parents who were bonded by their trauma. This created a home charged with emotional outbursts, dynamics of favoritism, food and alcohol addictions, screaming or silent treatments as forms of punishment, fear as a way to control, and a reactive, unpredictable, “walking on egg shells” kind of environment. I would wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of breaking glass, rageful threats and the bracing of everything inside of me. I would hesitantly come out in the morning to a mother collapsed by her own tears and a sense of helplessness.    As a young child, I learned that safety wasn’t found inside the walls of my home, rather I found it outside tucked in the forest, curled up in the flower field, or resting down by the river. It was in these places when everything fell quiet and no one could find me that I felt safe. It was in the arms of Earth.    Earth held me, listened to me, gifted me, and showed me how to play, relax, find comfort and get good night rests. Earth became my guardian, protector and my best friend. Earth embraced all of me.    Later I would forget the child who belonged to earth. As I grew up, like many of us do, I desperately tried to find my safe place in the human-centric society. I was immersed in environments consumed by pressure, stress, scarcity, performance and proving. These environments mirrored my upbringing. I was walking, breathing and living out inherited intergenerational trauma patterns.    After a series of initiations, committing to living aligned to my values, and a breaking open of my heart, I felt the call of my inner child to return home, to earth.    So I returned; and discovered not only the little girl who carried a love for earth along with the wounds of being human, but I found myself. Earth showed and continues to show me how to heal and see myself with compassion, how to lovingly re-parent myself, how to be with the unknown and surrender to change, how to love and be loved, how to play and express myself authentically, how to move in rhythms that honor my body, how to be with discomfort, how to celebrate growth, how to listen, and how to be a wild, spiritual, queer, embodied and empowered human-being.    Everyday, earth teaches me. I am an earth student, devotee, healer, guide and friend committed to bringing YOU back to your place of belonging - to earth and to yourself.

 MODALITIES 

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing is a healing modality that orients towards bottom-up and top-down processing. Somatics centers the story of the body and through a slow process called titration, somatics experiencing pendulates between the trauma vortex and the counter vortex to create a healing vortex. It supports clients to build capacity for sensation, listen to their felt-sense and begin to digest the unprocessed trauma that might be stored within the tissues and cells of your body through incomplete defense strategies. It is rooted in the work of Peter Levine, who studied and observed how animals in the wild experience threats everyday, yet are not traumatized. He discovered a process of discharge and a completion of self-protective responses that happens as animals move from safety to threat and back to safety.
