About Jackie

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

Jackie Michel is the owner and director of J. Michel Associates, a company that offers coaching, counseling and consulting.
   Her approach combines a thorough understanding of the business environment with an extensive background in counseling and psychotherapy. She facilitates candid conversation, elicits creative thinking and is an expert at listening, synthesizing and fostering breakthroughs in thinking and action. 

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."

Now in her new book, "Hooray for Parenting, Your Guide to Raising Great Kids", Jackie likens the parenting journey to looking into a crystal.  No matter what facet one focuses on, all the others are reflected.  Those multiple reflections or themes and prerequisites for creative masterful parenting include love, learning, listenng, patience, practice, using the power of limits, the power of mistakes, courage and trust.

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.
