Breon MichelBreon coaches, teaches and writes about resilience and well-being for expecting and new parents, children, and families.  As a mother of two (who struggled a great deal with the transition to motherhood), she’s passionate about providing support and resources to help mothers get relief from stress and anxiety and be the parent they’re truly capable of being.

Breon’s programs draw from her deep knowledge of nervous system regulation, mindfulness, compassion, and resilience. 

Breon spent many years facilitating postpartum support groups at Modern Milk in Scottsdale, AZ. Her groups focused on the emotional demands – and opportunities – of becoming a mother, including coping strategies that affirm and empower mothers.

In her previous life, she led a host of courses that strengthen individual, family, and team resilience. These include the University of Pennsylvania’s Positive Psychology Center’s Penn Resilience Program, which trained teachers, parents and school administrators in the core skills of resilience, and the Army’s Master Resilience Training Program, an intensive train-the-trainer course that provides Army senior leaders with tools to enhance mental and emotional strength.

In 2008, Breon earned a Master’s in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Shortly after, she completed in-depth training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction at U Mass Medical with Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues. In the last few years, Breon saw a need for learning about the nervous system’s role in healing, and has since undertaken various trauma-safe trainings in Organic Intelligence with Steve Hoskinson and colleagues. Ultimately, Breon merges her understanding of parenting and child development with her expertise in neurobiological healing and thriving.

Breon has two young children who routinely test her resilience, and inspire her to keep practicing what she preaches, albeit very, very imperfectly!

I very much look forward to supporting you on your parenting journey.
