“You changed my life. I will be forever grateful. Hiring you as a dating coach was one of the best decisions I ever made. I gained a great understanding of how to approach dating and choose a good man. I am getting married August 3rd!”

-M.B.

Thank you for challenging my preconceived notions and my unrealistic expectations. You gave me the tools to be the best Me I could possibly be. Things are going really well with my boyfriend! I am very happy with him and I love how much we communicate. I feel very secure in this relationship because of who I am and how he rises to meet my needs. We do not place demands on each other. We do things for each other because we want to see the other person's face light up. :) I am really excited to meet his parents and his sister in less than two weeks!”

“I have been meaning to write you. I have been dating three very attractive men the past month. Enjoying it enormously. I stopped using the online sites to focus on these three men who are smart, sophisticated, tender, romantic, well-traveled and athletic. Thank you for helping me have the courage to do this. And for encouraging me to color my hair. All three men are very complimentary. You chose a good look for me, and the appreciation of your photographer's pictures has been unanimous. I am amazed at the quality and quantity of men in my age group with depth to them. You may use this as a reference if you like.”

“I have been meaning to email you to say thank you for your counsel last year. I found the process extremely valuable and took many of your wonderful suggestions to heart. I am in a relationship now that is just entering the year mark, and progressing well beyond my expectations. So, yes, I am off the market!”

- J.F., 38 year-old coaching client

“Thank you so much. I hope I was able to convey to you on Wednesday how impressed I am with you in your role. You definitely have a gift in making simple what can be the very confusing world of relationships. I got so much out of our time together; I feel much more empowered to get what I want out of relationships, and I am very grateful for the time you spent with me.”

- E.G., coaching client

“It was really wonderful meeting you. Your words of advice had a very strong effect on me. I was so impressed with how well and deep you think. I certainly need you as my relationship coach. I had a more productive meeting with you than I had with a number of therapists over the years.”

- Sonia, 52

“I'm so happy I finally decided to get help with dating and relationships and had the courage to make the call and get coaching. My future children have you to thank -- seriously.

- J.Y., 36 year-old coaching client

Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support, guidance, understanding and perspective over the last three months. I've really enjoyed working with you and have learned so much about how to screen guys better, set better boundaries, ask for what I want and be more assertive. I'm still working on it all, but your support has made a huge difference. I just wanted to tell you again how much I appreciate all the help you've given me. THANK YOU!!! I would love to keep in touch and keep you posted on my dating journey.”

- R.S., 41 year-old coaching client

“I normally would send the “proper“ thank you note via the post office, however, I felt that I had to thank you immediately and, the formality had to go out the window! Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable. I know how valuable your time is not only as a business woman but, more importantly a mother. I know you went overtime with me and I want you to know I don't take that for granted and how much I appreciate you and your time. You do truly give off light and energy and make people feel good - you did this for me. You gave me so much to think about. The people in your life are truly lucky to have you. Again, thank you for sharing so many things with me today. You are an incredible person.”

- M.S., coaching client

“Good morning! So far I have gotten 23 emails. I also have about 20 winks and about 8 guys favorited me. BTW, do I need to reply to everyone? LOL! I am getting WONDERFUL comments about my profile and my pictures. Thank you!”

- J.D., 41 year-old coaching client

I am incredibly happy and wanted to share that with you! I also wanted to thank you for your help on this long but totally worth it journey! If this is what I've been waiting for for 30 years, it was worth the wait! You are fantastic and will help a lot of people! You already have!”

- N.W., coaching client

“We went out to my parents' farm on Saturday to celebrate my birthday with them... he proposed on Saturday afternoon and we were able to celebrate with my parents! So, I am thrilled to announce that I am officially engaged! We are so happy together and we have the same values and goals... somehow it has all fallen into place. We are thinking of a September wedding. Thank you again for your help and support through the process.”

- C.C., 33, Washington, DC

“Meeting you was the highlight of my week. Your empathetic manner, charm, easy story telling ability, and sparkle is captivating. I came away so invigorated. Just to think of dating as a skill to be cultivated rather than a deficient element of my life was uplifting. I really enjoyed getting to know you. You are an inspiration and so obviously touch many peoples' lives. Thank you for what you do. Helping others believe in their own potential is such a gift to give the world. I would like to work with you!”

- Margie, 48 year-old coaching client, Washington, DC

“I had the pleasure of working with Michelle in her coaching program for three months beginning in August 2012. If you are thinking about working with Michelle, but are on the fence, just do it! Her advice was very easy to follow, although it was a completely different approach to dating than anything I had ever tried before. The most difficult part was stepping outside of my comfort zone. But, when I did, I went from being someone who went on one or two dates a year to going on three dates a week and sometimes even three dates a day! I'd never tried online dating before, but Michelle's mix of tough love and consistent encouragement got me online. She has a delightful personality-high-energy and firm but encouraging. She's also a fabulous photographer, the pictures she took of me for my online profile were literally some of the best photos I've ever had taken! Some of the guys I met I clicked with others not so much. Eventually, I met a man who I dated for several months before deciding that the relationship wasn't right for me. Left to my own devices, I probably would have stayed in the relationship much longer. In the past, I'd often stayed too long in the wrong relationship, wasting valuable time. I think the biggest benefit that I've gained through working with Michelle is that I enjoy my life so much more now. Working with her got me to get up, get out of the house, make new friends, and try new activities. I highly recommend Michelle as a dating coach. If you follow her advice, have fun, and really push yourself you will see the benefits. Expect an adventure!”

- Stephanie, 39 year-old coaching client, DC

“I would highly recommend working with Michelle! Anyone looking to find a really great relationship should be armed with her wisdom, advice and encouragement!“

- Happy client

“Working with Michelle has completely changed my perspective on dating. I ask better questions before deciding if I would like to go on a date with someone, I feel more confident that I am putting my best foot forward when I go out on dates and I don't worry about not finding someone else if I go out with someone I ultimately decide not to see again. I know there will be a great guy in my future! It's an entirely new perspective for me. It is refreshing, positive and motivating!”

- Happy client

“I just had a great second date. And we've already set the 3rd date. I cannot thank you enough for teaching me how to date. I feel so much more confident on dates. Positivity is key!!! I cannot believe how much it has changed my dating! No matter how this (or any date) turns out, you have changed my life! (And I think you know me by now... I am not one to lay on the cheese unless it is true ;))”
