Who We Are

Our mission at Village Well is to cultivate a community where radical self-love, empowerment, and authentic connection are held in a sacred container.

We honor the inclusivity of diverse faiths, genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.  We gather with the understanding that each of us holds stories, truth, and light.

Together, we are on a collective quest to become the best version of ourselves: our Higher Selves.  

It is our intention to create safe and nourishing opportunities to connect. In our community, you are valued and your feelings will be witnessed with compassion.

 My Village Well creates the ideal space for sisterhood to flourish, with both deep connections to one another and space for self reflection. One can be real, uninhibited, and contemplative without judgement. My Village Well is a place for learning, understanding, empowerment, and above all, friendship. MVW is an answered prayer.

Beach Fun

If there’s a place where it is possible to feel the joyful camaraderie, a lightness of being, where emotional obstacles are navigated in a safe and secure space that has been created for a wonderful group of women...  


 A place that is bound by trust, interspersed with laughter and a rollicking good time while being guided by Michelle, who relates and empathizes with us, cares deeply, while understanding each one of us...

it is Village Well.

- Alma U.

 Discovering My Village Well and working with Michelle has been beautiful, empowering, comfortable, educational, and a true blessing. I am grateful for this tribe of passionate and enlightened people who come together with peace, love and openness in their hearts. 

- Karen A.

After Coaching with Michelle,  I am more connected, open and curious. I have a stronger sense of what's important and a healthier self image because I value myself!

I have discovered that I am capable of being scared WHILE having new adventures, learning and growing.

The Village Well has empowered women to be their authentic selves. Personally, it has given me the gift of friendship and self care during a time in my life when I felt like I need to connect the most.

I have attended many of Village Well‘s offerings.  Michelle is an excellent facilitator and has the ability to create a safe and loving space whether it is online or in person. 


The feelings of love and connectedness that I experienced with the other women while on retreat are unparalleled. 


Michelle has the ability to consistently bring together an amazing and authentic group of women to learn from and connect with.
