A THRULINE is a connecting theme in your life that makes you uniquely you. Using the enneagram, I will work with you to discover your THRULINE and how that will unlock your potential.
Hello there! I’m Michelle: a supportive wife, loving mom of three, devoted sister, and faithful friend.
Another common THRULINE for me is being a problem solver. I have always been fascinated in discovering the core issue and the root of a problem. As a former teacher, one of the most rewarding moments would be a student having an “AHA moment.” While my students attempted to solve a math problem or answer a reading prompt, I would study them, searching for clues, teach them new techniques, and empower them to unlock their learning. It was a celebration for us when they successfully solved a math problem or answered a reading prompt. This was also the motivations for my Master’s in Social Work at Columbia University. I wanted to learn more about the barriers people carry that impede them from reaching their full potential. I believe that when you can start to see patterns and common themes that is when you can unlock possibilities and answers.
When I discovered the Enneagram, I felt like it was my turn to experience the “AHA moments.” In learning about my own core motivations, I was able to face some of my insecurities, grow in confidence, and leave behind negative tendencies that have been stumbling blocks. It was liberating!
My THRULINE when working with you will be to help you reach your “AHA moment.” When you work with me you will find that I am deeply spiritual, and deeply practical. I will help you connect the dots in your life, AND I will also give you practical tools to meet your goals. Whether you are on a journey of self-discovery, facing a problem that you can’t seem to solve, or in the middle of a transition, let me listen to your story, ask compelling questions, and reveal how you are uniquely wired, so that YOU can unlock your potential and move gracefully into the next season.
I love to meet with people and hear their stories. I enjoy creating safe spaces that allow people to uncover who they really are. Many of my friends have said that my superpower is asking inquisitive questions. Still that teacher at heart, I am not here to help you identify your THRULINE, that connecting theme in your life that makes you uniquely you.

“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has or ever will have something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.” — Mr. Rogers
“All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we’re giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors—in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver.” —- Mr. Rogers
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” — Mother Teresa
