Since 1997 she has been on the faculty at the Transformational Arts College of Spiritual and Holistic Training and worked as a Psychotherapist in their therapy clinic. At Transformational Arts, she studied Spiritual Psychotherapy, Spiritual Direction and Body Psychotherapy. Her time there has taught her the importance of a spiritual journey which enhances our daily lives.

Michelle also studied at and graduated from the Gestalt Institute of Toronto, where she bridged her spiritual approach with Gestalt Therapy. What she learned through her time there was that being connected to self, others, and our environment in an authentic way is key to living a meaningful spiritual life.
