Michelle Phillips, 'The Liberation Strategist,' is a mental health clinician by training and a spiritual wellbeing practitioner at heart and is a graduate of Seattle University's Clinical Mental Health Counseling Education program. Originally from the deep South, Michelle alchemizes grief and loss work, relational neuroscience, systems theory, and the healing wisdom from the diaspora to facilitate embodied intergenerational healing and liberation. Curating and facilitating transformative spaces is why Michelle wakes up in the morning. As a former hospital chaplain, Michelle's practice integrates commonly missing spiritual and energetic matters for more profound wellness in the community. Michelle respectfully requests 'they' pronouns and possessives as non-binary gender identity and an ancestral practice in reverence of and linkage to their unnamed ancestors of unknown lineages, languages, and genders.
