“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
I am Dr. Michele L. Blume. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist with over 15 years experience working as a therapist. I am also a certified Somatic Experiencing practitioner, and an integration therapist. In my work as a therapist, I aim to provide you with guidance that can assist your personal transformation and enable your expansion into greater joy, compassion, creativity and self-love. Wherever you are on your journey, I will work with you to enhance your self-knowledge and grow your capacity to experience a deeper connection with yourself and with others. Together, we can illuminate the vast possibilities of your life and open your heart to receive them.
In addition to my work as a psychologist, I am also an international author. My book is titled, Mindful Somatic Awareness for Anxiety Relief: A Body-Based Approach to Moving Beyond Fear and Worry. The pages of my book offer a gentle guide for those looking to transcend their fear and worry and awaken to their true nature through mind-body discipline. My book provides a basic, yet detailed understanding of the extraordinary relationship between the mind and body and highlights how deep emotional wounds embedded in the interior landscape of your mind-body consciousness point to the origins of your chronic fear and worry. My book is now available in German and Russian.
"Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."

Mindful Somatic Awareness
for Anxiety Relief
Mindful Somatic Awareness is a meditative practice that helps you quiet the fear generating parts of your mind-body. It can also deepen your meditative practice by facilitating access to the emotional wounds at the core of your fear and worry. In each chapter of my book, I provide exercises to help you expand your understanding of how early fear-based experiences shaped you and how they may be linked to your present anxiety and emotional overwhelm. The exercises also provide you with a blueprint for healing these emotional wounds so you can move through your fear and engage life authentically and with an open heart.
