1 Minute Read: The Confidence Gap

One-Minute Read-The Confidence GapResearch shows that females are less confident than males.  In my book, confidence is as important as competence.

I was not confident as a child or a young adult.  I felt held back, frustrated, stuck, confused and hopeless at times.  I learned how to be confident through a winning combination of right-thinking and action.

It also helped having an awesome therapist who helped me navigate through difficult mental terrain and many challenging transition periods (such as school, marriage, parenting, divorce, business ownership). I continue to work with an awesome therapist because I’m certain there is more to come in my life where I will want and need her guidance.

How confident are you?

Why do you think you have shaky confidence (in certain areas)?

Do you know how to build your self-confidence?

I want to empower females to catch up to the guys in the area of CONFIDENCE.  We can do it!  

Need some support and guidance?  I would be happy to help you on your confidence journey.

Testimonials

I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I left your office so inspired today.

AnnaMay
To say Michelle changed our lives would not be an exaggeration. She was very empathetic and non-judgmental... She didn't make our daughter feel badly... She didn't make my husband and myself feel like incompetent parents.
...
Linda
I definitely owe my newfound confidence to Michelle. Without her, I don’t know how I would’ve been able to come out of my horrible situation as such a better version of myself.
...
Grace
People don't understand Michelle doesn’t just offer advice… which they seem to be afraid of hearing. I convey the message that the decisions you make are ultimately your own but Michelle will help you find clarity and sort through emotions.

We felt comfortable knowing that Michelle would be the kind of counselor that would help our daughter see the good in herself, but also question some of her choices and actions.
