Michelle Hobart, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist


Michelle Anne Hobart,  is a teacher, writer, energy medicine and bodywork practitioner, and CA Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She became certified as a Spiritual Emergence Coach® with Emma Bragdon in 2016, worked closely with the Laingian Gnosis Retreat Center project, and she offers an evergreen online Spiritual Emergence Course with Kyle Buller called Awakening Healers.

Michelle supports highly sensitive beings whose Spiritual Emergence has been misunderstood or pathologized and who are in the process of reclaiming and recovering their self-care and personal truth, integrating extraordinary realities, working with their spiritual gifts, and restoring balance and harmony in their lives.

Her areas of specialty include psychic opening, channeling, shamanic crisis, extraordinary states integration, psi, energy, and paranormal phenomena. She offers individual and group sessions, and leads community wellness workshops and retreats.

Her love for the Earth, spirit, and education was exemplified in her past when she was a high school Biology and Health teacher working in the Baltimore parochial school system after receiving her BS in Biology from University of Maryland Baltimore County. Deeply longing to immerse herself in the subtle realms, she was drawn to the Bay Area to continue her studies. With her MA in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness from CIIS, she experientially and scholastically continued her own personal journey of healing and the joy of sharing that path with others.

Her own ongoing lifelong Spiritual Emergence became an Emergency in 2013, and since then she has advocated for Spiritual Emergence alternatives to hospitalization, client and patient rights, and ethical space-holding. Michelle graduated from the Integral Counseling Psychology program at CIIS in May 2018, where she offered a Spiritual Emergence Sharing & Support circle monthly, along with bringing noted teachers from the SE, Mad Pride, Neo-Laingian, and Neurodiversity communities to CIIS to offer workshops and classes. She finished her second book, Holding Sacred Space in February 2019, got her MFT License in 2022, and is in awe of the beautiful opportunities to support others that the Universe provides her through writing, being a therapist and Spiritual Emergence Coach®, and her other embodiment and energy healing modalities.
