TRAUMA INFORMED CARE.
INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS.
My name is Michelle Rozek (she/they)...
I'm a queer Mind Body Spirit Practitioner,
Mindfulness Nature Therapy Guide,
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 & integrative healing therapies. I support individuals to listen to their body's wisdom, explore and unveil what remains hidden, and live in greater alignment with their true desires.
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?
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)
Survival strategy and resourcing
Climate anxiety, alienation, grief
WE CAN EXPLORE...
THIS IS FOR YOU IF...
You want to love yourself, cultivate somatic awareness and attune to your body’s changing needs and cues
You want to raise awareness of your subconscious patterns
You seek to heal historical and intergenerational trauma patterns
You desire to feel confident in your ability to set boundaries, carry self-compasssion, speak your truth, and embody liberating ways of being and relating
You are ready to listen, be curious of, and explore your interior landscape (parts, shadow states, etc)
You are committed to expanding the evolutionary edge of your healing and growth journey
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Sessions are designed to provide a process-based space where you learn to acknowledge, track and center your body’s felt-sense, build somatic awareness, cultivate presence, learn self-regulation, and practice inner resourcing. I support individuals in listening to their
body’s wisdom and transforming their inner landscape by exploring personal narratives, memories, automatic responses, thought patterns, triggers, implicit biases, emotions, behaviors, habits, etc.
A TYPICAL SESSION
Guided meditations, somatic exercises, and practices for resourcing
Experiential, interactive, and body-based healing approaches
Process-centered space that supports and empowers you to be with what is present in your current somatic experience
Tools, skills, practices and new embodiments that facilitate awareness, attunement and regulation
Resources, articles, guides to support your integration
Periodic therapeutic touch therapy
Earth bonding, eco-regulation, and eco-healing experiences
Be held, witnessed, heard, understood and empowered
Typically I work with people for 60 minutes on a weekly basis, and with time, reduce our frequency to biweekly. My personal goal is for you to become your own inner guide.
We oscillate from meeting outdoors in nature to virtual on zoom. Due to covid, I’ve been meeting mostly on zoom.
I offer free introductory consultations. These are about 30-minute video calls where we can discuss what brings you to therapy, the modalities and approaches I use, and discuss whether we want to work together. Studies have shown that the best predictor of success in therapy is having a good relationship with your therapist. Let's make sure I'm your person!
"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."
"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."
"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."
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.

Nature Therapy is a holistic healing modality that maintains that tending our connection with the more-than-human world is necessary for thriving. Informed by Systems Theory, this modality honors the fact that we are intimately embedded within and inseparable from Earth. Nature Therapy recognizes that our identity formation is influenced at a deep somatic level by our early experiences in nature, by our parents' ways of relating with nature, and by our culture’s narrative of the natural world.
Through a process we call Earth Bonding, we begin to recalibrate our inner system by attuning to Earth, cultivating co-regulation practices with Earth, and forming a secure attachment to ourselves through Earth. Through education, practices, and being with Earth, we stimulate the healing of the mind body spirit relationship.
