About Jackie

Jackie Michel, M.S.,
Psychotherapist, Executive Coach, Consultant

Jackie has an extensive background in counseling and coaching and brings this experience to her leadership workshops and training seminars for businesses and not for profits.

Realizing the importance of the skills and training available to leaders and managers, Jackie believed parents deserved similar insights and wisdom relative to parenting and it should be available in an easily accessible format.  With her extensive experience working both as a psychotherapist and an executive coach with people and kids from every walk of life, she has intergrated up to date information with her transformational learning approach in the online course  created for parents, "Mastering the Art of Raising Great Kids."

She is author of the book, "Hooray for Parenting, Your Guide to Raising Great Kids", and the accompanying Workbook and Discussion Guide.

Today, she and her husband live in Fayetteville, New York where she continues private video counseling and coaching with clients in New York, Houston and California. She is creator of www.gratitudeleads.com  She recently has served as a consultant to the management team and direct care workers at United Cerebral Palsy in Utica, New York.
