IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL COACHING

 

Do you have questions you would like a midwife to answer? Do you want a second (or third) opinion? Are you in need of a sounding board? Do you need to process some big emotions? Do you require some help navigating new parenting milestones? Are you struggling with some of life's bigger questions?

 

Spiritual Coaching/Direction
Listening to and advising clients on matters of the heart, spirituality, and Source; finding a pathway back to harmony, self, and a sense of purpose.
 

Frame of Reference: Misha has a background in philosophy, ethics, anthropology, and comparative religion studies. Their spiritual life is informed by Judaism, Buddhist Thought, Pantheism, the seasons, and their ancestors.

Life Coaching
Working with clients via counselling, consulting, and encouragement on aspects of life having to do with creativity, careers, parenting, or other personal challenges.
 

Frame of Reference: Misha is LGBTQIA2S+ centered & affirming, sex (kink & sex work) positive, and body/fat positive. Their coaching comes through a decolonising, harm-reducing, and consensual-living lense.

Health & Reproductive Consulting
Information and education regarding holistic health, perinatal care options, mindfulness, stress reduction, herbalism, and self-managed healthcare options.
 

Frame of Reference: Misha has been providing midwifery & well-person care since 1998, community & folk herbalism since 2003, inclusive sex & sexuality education since 2015, and peer counselling since 2000. Their care is evidence & trauma-informed and rooted in bodily & cognitive autonomy, nonviolent communication, and somatic processing.

Misha is a traditional community midwife of over two decades, community & folk herbalist, inclusive sex & sexuality education teacher, Jewish & Humanist/secular chaplain, former substance use & victim survivor peer-counsellor, social & health advocate, and radical unschooling parent of two ('03 & '16). They identify as queer, transgender nonbinary/genderqueer, fat, disabled, autistic, Romani, & Mizrahi. More about Misha here.

You are here because you want to talk about what is on your mind. Let us schedule time together to address your needs.

We can meet virtually or in-person.

In-person consultations are typically done at the client’s home. Meeting at an alternative location, like a friend’s home, library, coffee shop, etc. can also be arranged.

 

COVID-19 POLICY: Masks REQUIRED for anyone present aged 5 years old and up, regardless of vaccination status. Appointment MUST BE rescheduled if client or Misha has any symptoms or if anyone in the client's or Misha's home or direct-care & contact has symptoms.

 

Virtual meetings are typically done via Zoom, Skype, or Google. While virtual visits are not the same quality as face-to-face visits, they are still a valuable option when speaking on matters of the heart & spirit, explaining & affirming symptoms, suggesting helpful nutrition/exercise/lifestyle adjustments, and educating clients in various other ways.

Before each visit (if applicable), you will answer some questions regarding your general health, about specific concerns/complaints you have, or about what is keeping you up at night. When applicable, visits are followed up by an email (within 48 hours of the end of the visit) with notes taken during the visit, links to additional information/resources as available, and any care plans/suggestions explained, if necessary. Most of our time together allows me to gather information to then make the best recommendations possible based on that information.
