A sampling of where I've been featured

Psychotherapy for women and transgender individuals of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations.


There is no BS here, she tells you what you need to hear and challenges patterns of behavior to achieve a new outcome. All while being warm and funny, which puts you at easy and helps to build a comfort level so progress can be made.

Private Lcoal Client, United States

Michele Paiva and her incredible work entered my life during a period of much transition, upheaval, and stress both at work and in my personal life. The chaos and crisis that should have unfolded did not have the impact that everyone, including myself, expected.

It was Michele's warmth, mentoring, blending of neuro-science and holistic practices that guided me through the waves that cruised through my life. After a miscarriage, a betrayal amidst a breakup, working in crisis mental health, and navigating a new career dynamic, that Michele facilitated a solidification of my sense of being rooted and grounded in the world.

She helped me cultivate and sustain self-care practices, acted as a firm supporter when I felt unhinged, and with elegant skill helped me to move my energy towards staying focused in my mind-body towards a healthy outcome, strengthening healthy coping skills, and be ever more comfortable with uncertainty.

She is a mind-body ninja in the most positive sense of the word!

J. M., Psychologist, California

I have been in different forms of therapy for 20 years. Michele has made the most difference. She uses her vast knowledge and experience to gently steer me toward the changes that I need to make to be truely happy. I thought I could not change and was “broken” for 20 years. Working with her allowed me to clear my life of negativity and start actually living!

Paiva Psychotherapy for the Conscious Feminine Psyche & Entrepreneur

Women go through unique transitions, challenges and situations; dialogue is not the only, nor best, way to communicate. I have an array of resources from therapeutic art to my work as a yoga therapist. With 30 years experience, I specialize in females who have experienced trauma, sexual assault, financial or career conflict and betrayal. I also focus on the truth under the trauma, the potential under the alleged pathology and rather than focusing on the struggle, we work toward bliss.

{video}Shame and Guilt in Sexuality

This short video will explain some of the facets surrounding shame and guilt when it comes to sexuality.

Should I leave my cheating husband?

Women ask themselves: "Was I not good enough in bed?" "Should I have been more sexual?" "Am I too old?" "I knew I wasn't attractive enough."

The Intersection of Science & Inspiration

Wouldn't it be nice to release the stress and anxiety, and take a mini-emotional vacation?

It's 14 days (you can do 1 or all 14 days, whatever resonates with you), to help you lower your stress levels, and bring your inner guidance into the forefront.

The Peace, Love & Bliss Self-Starter Kit is the most “positive” visitor gift that I've ever created with 14 days of “blissed out” strategies to get your life back to peace and/or love – the only two areas that no matter what you are going through, you might be missing out on.

Getting your life together doesn't have to be a struggle or intense. It will be therapeutic but also inspiring; which means you'll get the science and, the inspiration.
