“I cannot speak highly enough about Michelle Lepak regarding  IFS with Presence Integration. Michelle is one of those rare practitioner/teachers who possesses an abundance of knowledge combined with the gift of a keen intuitive sense that she integrates organically into being a highly skilled trainer/teacher. She is open, warm, present, caring, and very well organized with the content and presenting of the material as well as in the facilitating of the entire training process. Her passion for the material and the teaching of it is infectious. She creates a very caring, safe environment within which much joyful learning can take place. I will most certainly be recommending her training to friends and colleagues.” – Bob Evans Ph.D.
