What I Can Do

Patient Advocacy

What can I do for you? 

Patient Advocates help people, along with their caregivers, demystify the complex healthcare system and assist with any challenging situations by coordinating treatment care for improving chronic healthcare illnesses such as obesity and a number of neurological autoimmune conditions.


I'm here to help you develop ways to manage your current medications and supplements by reviewing a person's doctors protocols on a regular basis, and make sure that they are in line with the needed healthcare regimen that the medical practitioner has requested for you to attain best health and wellness.


I can also work with medical providers to find solutions that work for each patient, and when needed, go with a client to medical appointments and take notes, bring up important questions & make sure critical details aren’t overlooked.


What about helping me with finding answers, or researching and exploring ways to help me understand healthcare and it's challenges?

I can also help family members and caregivers organize healthcare proxy's, living wills, handle any research and guide patients with insurance challenges as well as learning how to best support a loved one in crisis. 


How does one handle stress when they are diagnosed with a chronic condition?

I believe that using mindfulness-based stress techniques (MBSR) for the patient, family members or care-giver is a tool that a healthcare advocate can offer. 

Whether I point you to a MBSR group in your area, or we work together one-on-one on how one can release and alleviate stress in one's mind and body, has been medically proven to help in bringing down inflammation and help with many neurological symptoms.


Wellness Support Coaching

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?

Health and Wellness Support Coaching is a research-based process that let's a coachee feel empowered to choose how to begin making desirable. health generating changes. 


For me, coaching isn't about counseling or therapy. 

My coaching philosophy comes from the "wabi-sabi" symbol, which stands for "perfection in imperfection". We all strive for perfection, as there's a beauty in imperfection.


Using coaching process, a client can identify what matters most to them for better health. The client can unearth any barriers that may be in their way so you can achieve your wellness goals and make positive, lasting behavior changes by using integrative mindfulness techniques.


I understand that clients make their own decisions, so my coaching a clients work with me to be able to effectively access the situation and to challenge a clients past assumptions or thoughts that could block a coachee from moving forward when seeking change.


Some areas coaches commonly assist clients would include: setting healthcare goals, exploring obstacles to be able to comply to your health and wellness goals, receiving support for clients to attain your wellness goals.


What ways can we accomplish this, as a team?

Firstly, by asking you more powerful, thought provoking questions that let you explore your own path. 


I believe that we are all masters of our own universe, and it's my honor to help you create your future path - be that personal or professional, with best health and wellness. I've been trained to activate change using behavioral strategies. 


Although I'm not here to offer specific nutrition or physical fitness advise, I'm more than able to access resources for clients, and help people identify areas they want to work on and I contribute accountability for a client's actions and can help shift stagnation for clients to create and reach their wellness goal plans.

What my clients are saying

"I've been working with Michele a little over a year and she's added so many ideas, resources, and tools to help me with my journey. Our coaching sessions always leave me confident to take on any endeavor. I've accomplished so many goals and objectives and I know it's from our coaching sessions." 

KW, Baltimore, MD

"When I first started my journey I had so many questions and not many people I could turn to. Michele was always right there with answers and help to steer me in the right direction. Having someone to support you and keep you accountable is the most helpful tool one can have for success. Overall I would suggest this support to anyone who is looking to take their life in their own hands and move forward to be 

their best selves!"

"Michele was a godsend when I decided to have a revision with my bariatric surgery procedure that helped me lose over a 150 pounds, but unfortunately, needed to be changed from one tool to another. It was a nightmare working with my health insurance company to get clearance and not have to gain back loads of weight, as she knew how to navigate through the problems with my health insurance company and created smooth sailing for me to reach approval, but always held my hand and has a firm but approachable style. I'd work with her again for any issues that come up with our difficult healthcare system again, should they arise.

"Even with my company having a great health insurance program, I came up against an issue with getting tests, more clarification from my medical team members and when I considered getting a second opinions for my chronic diagnosis. Michele was able to step in and boy, did she step up in guiding me through our crazy healthcare system. She's definitely a person who advocates for her patients, so much so, I feel more confident when I see my doctors and more prepared to ask for what I need and would reach out again, if anything challenging came up, for her advocacy skills.

"Having struggled with a chronic neurological condition for a few decades that falls under "invisible illnesses", Michele was right there helping me to create my voice, to express my own medical narrative with my family, friends and even with strangers. It's discouraging when people don't understand that just because you can't see someone's medical condition, medical symptoms still exist. Working with me on how I choose to share my chronic condition, when to ask for help, and who would be best able to understand me with better words has made living with a chronic invisible illness an easier lifestyle shift."
