Introduction: "Conscious Relationship Coaching" has helped hundreds of couples not only heal old wounds, but find an expanded, enlivened space within the marriage or partnership to grow together in entirely new ways. If we can become aware of how our personal issues are impacting one another, and work on learning more effective ways to communicate our needs & emotions, healing begins. We can't heal a wound until we recognize that it's there! I absolutely love working with individuals, couples and families in restoring a sense of harmony within the family system. It's deeply gratifying to watch as clients begin to unfold their own inner sense of balance, purpose, aliveness, sturdiness, strength, clarity and joy. As individuals heal, so do all the relationships around them. About me .. Sam Michaels is an author, speaker, transpersonal therapist, counselor and relationship coach. With wisdom, compassion and humor, she uses a blend of energy and depth psychology, imagery, mindfulness meditation, hypnotherapy, Imago Couples Therapy and cognitive behavioral techniques in helping clients actualize their own unique potential. ​ She has worked in the entertainment industry, as an executive in the corporate world, co-hosted an interview format radio show on "Emotional Fitness" with Dr. Barton Goldsmith, and has been in private practice for 15 years. Researching into the powerful connections between mind, neurobiology and health, she has done imagery and counseling with cancer patients and their families, volunteered doing spiritual counseling through hospice, assisted in designing and implementing corporate stress management and wellness programs with Dr. David Bresler, and worked in a research capacity with Dr. Norman Cousins at the Psychoneuroimmunology Institute at UCLA. Additionally, working for years at the prestigious Passages Malibu, she brings discretion and a wealth of experience in helping celebrities, Fortune 500 executives and a high-caliber clientele address the unique challenges inherent in a very public lifestyle. She also conducts "Mindfulness and Meditation Workshops," both here and in Ireland. Having studied extensively in contemplative and spiritual disciplines across many cultures, her work with Dr. Richard Moss on the psychophysiology of awakening consciousness has had a profound influence on her work with individuals and groups. She received her BA from UCLA, and is now completing an interdisciplinary Masters/Doctoral program. She brings studies into cultural anthropology, mind body medicine, comparative religion and transpersonal psychology into her work. She has received training/certifications in traditional therapy techniques, trauma, mindfulness-based stress management, hypnotherapy, addiction & recovery and EMDR.

I have never thought I needed someone professional to talk to until recently I got into in law situation and it hurts my marriage. When I met Samantha she was professional, kind, understanding and more. I like she gave me very good advice and homework to help me get back in track with my life very quickly. I highly recommend her.

I’ve had several counselors over the years. It can be hard to find the right one who really fits you, and make a difference. I am very grateful for Samantha she is gifted at her work. Her methods for couples counseling have taught me I can be a better communicator. I feel I’ve learned a lot from the methods she teaches. Also working with her individually has been wonderful as well. Also, Samantha has helped me with life coaching. She is a gem. I highly recommend her to anyone.

My husband and I just had one session with Sam and we walked out in agreement to work on our marriage. Looking forward to connecting again for continued couples therapy. I highly recommend Sam as she was able to speak to both of our hearts effectively.

Samantha was able to meet with me when I was having a very difficult time. She listened and understood the issues and helped me to gain some clarity and hope again. Samantha is helping me to regain my voice and become more true to myself. I really appreciate the time she spent with me.
