Dr. Michelle Peticolas
Filmmaker/Grief Transformation Specialist
I dreamed of committing time to reflect upon my spiritual and emotional journey. I wanted to explore my life’s purpose and deepen my understanding of certain events in my life. I had no idea that my work with Dr. Peticolas on grief and loss would also illuminate patterns that kept me from having a loving, forgiving and compassionate relationship with myself. Through Michelle’s gentle, thoughtful and non-judgmental approach, I have been able to review my life’s more darker circumstances and events and use them to make more insightful and mindful choices, not only about how I am showing up for others in my life, but more importantly, how I am showing up for myself.”
"I knew when I signed up that I would be helped to accept the loss of my partner. I had no idea how you were going to achieve that. Today I am amazed at where I am. I have come so much further where I can look to the future with anticipation. I was really resistant to the idea of “closure” but you made it so engaging and fun. John is not gone, he is always with me."
"I have lost my only daughter, confidant and intellectual partner 8 months ago. I am missing her tremendously every second. Participation in this program helped me to be more positive and less angry on issues surrounding her departure. I am still very very sad, but I can plan and manage my life much easier in order to continue my life without the "apple of my eyes.""
"While working with Michelle, I discovered she has the integrity like no other person in my entire 40+ years of experience working with other life coaches, therapists, spiritual teachers, etc. She does what she says and sticks to her word like no other. Her boundaries are firm and straightforward, yet she bends “softly” at the right moment when I need her to hear me at a deep humane and spiritual level. After my feeling betrayed by other coaches, therapists, and yoga teachers throughout my life, Michelle has restored my faith in her as a conscientious, aware, and human healer. That is a good start for me."
"When I first started Michelle’s program, I felt so angry and frustrated with my life. I was still grieving the loss of my wife 5 years ago and I was stuck. But I really questioned spending the money because there are a lot of other things I could have done with it. Now that I’m finished, I can say that working with Michelle was totally worth it. I feel better physically, mentally and spiritually. I am more confident and more open with my feelings. I have a clear plan of what my next steps are and what I need to do to keep this happening. I know I’m going to be ok. "
"I was going through a very traumatic life experience when I met Michelle. I had just gone through four therapists and was in despair of finding someone who could help me. I met her through the recommendation of a mutual friend. Our connection was immediate. She completely understood my pain, fear and anxiety. Slowly and with the baby steps I required, she patiently helped me overcome these challenges."
Her greatest strengths are her compassion, understanding and genuine care. She provided insightful coaching, practical exercises, relevant readings, uplifting music, spiritual texts, phone calls, group support and whatever else was needed. I have progressed a great deal and am a happier, more confidant and more complete person today."
