I help clients identify what they are wanting through clarification of what they are thinking, feeling and doing. I assist clients in viewing things from different perspectives and seek out options that might have been hidden previously.
I work from a whole person perspective and look to support clients as they challenge belief systems and patterns of behaviors.
I also try and bring a Christian perspective as many of the answers we seek cannot be viewed simply from a human lens and needs to be addressed from the spiritual realm.

Michele Kratochvil is the owner and operator of Kratochvil Health Kare. She began as a massage therapist in the late 1980's. At that time, she was working in a variety of settings including health spas, chiropractic offices and rehabilitation centers. The first goal was to have an independent massage practice, which was achieved in the mid 90’s. Then the business grew to include mental health counseling because the body was just one medium in which to help people. So, she returned to graduate school and received her master’s degree in Counseling and is a National Board Certified Counselor which allows her to assist individuals in connecting the mind/body relationship. Now, in private practice for over 20 years working as a counselor she has had the privilege of allowing individuals to find their own path to healing by creating a safe and peaceful space for them to explore reasons for chronic pain, relationship problems, stress/overwhelm patterns of behavior and management of depression and/or anxiety. Additionally, she is an alternative health junkie and can support clients in exploring health and wellness through essential oils, supplementation/vitamins, organic/whole foods and movement in their body.
Michele loves learning and continues to explore additional areas of healing modalities as a consumer and therefore can share her knowledge/experience/education with her clients. Also, she has received a Mastery Certification in Transformational Coaching. She is a licensed Massage Therapist and has multiple continuing education certifications in mindfulness meditation, cognitive behavioral techniques, and essential oils to name just a few. Michele is a Christian and loves to share her faith with others who would like to fellowship about the truths in the bible. Michele is married to her wonderful husband for 33 years and they have one child together.
