Welcome to YOUR Upgrade.  Here at Upgrade In Progress-Transformative Healing and Coaching, it is our Passion and Mission to help you transform and "Upgrade" to your greatest version of yourself.     

Upgrade means to raise to a higher standard by adding or replacing components, as in technology.  So to "upgrade" to our greatest versions of ourself, we must begin with our own software or operating system (i.e. our thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors) which also entails our current paradigms and deeply held ideologies. There are several plans or services to choose from that will likely meet your upgrading needs.  Listed below are some suggestions and ideas to consider for your upgrade:

  • Physical wellness- Focuses primarily on physical movements such as Yoga, Walking, Running, Stretching, Dance and is based on YOUR body and needs.

  • Emotional wellness- Focuses primarily on learning about and deeply understanding your own emotional reaction process and starting to gain control over your emotional expressions.  Learn ways to acknowledge, feel & heal, purge and release ALL negative emotions

  • Cognitive wellness- Focuses primarily on learning and understanding your thought process as well as the connection to how and when you began learning to think the way you do.

  • Energy movement- Learn and understand how your vital life force, or Prana (in Sanskrit) gets stuck in your body due to your thoughts and beliefs and learn how to move it around your body and dislodge years of stuck and repressed emotions and illness.

Connecting Session

Much like that of a traditional counseling session, this time is   intended to explore your past, your thoughts and your beliefs about yourself and your life.  This time allows me to get to know you and explore you past and present energy, dreams, and deepest desires.


Learn and implement different ways and techniques to increase your vibrational frequency through diet, movement/exercise, hobbies/habits, thoughts, intention, etc…


This is education, guidance and support of your emotions and awareness and learning how to acknowledge, feel, and process the emotions that are always being carried in our physical body.

Energy Education and Mentoring

This is education and guiding services on learning about your energetic needs and how the physical, emotional, and etheric bodies all run off of your vital life force, Prana.

Hi and welcome to my page.  My name is Michelle Thornton and I have spent the past 25 years in the behavioral health field working with all age ranges and socioeconomic backgrounds, and mental health diagnoses.  I have a Master's degree in Education with an emphasis in Human Relations and my undergraduate degree is majored in Psychology and minored in Sociology.  I am also a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor.  So, my entire adult life has been spent pursuing knowledge and experience in the inner workings of the mind and behavior of people.  My passion is working with children but I also deeply understand that in order for children to be truly healthy in their expressions, it is the adults around them that must learn about themselves so that they become positive and nurturing role models.  My career and journey in life bring me to a time and place where my desire to help others remains strong but the delivery of service is changing from the traditional role of therapist or clinician to a more collaborative role and intentional role of frequency shifter and life coach.   Allow me to explain this role.  As a "frequency shifter", it is my intention and goal to familiarize my clientele with their energetic properties in order to move them from their current vibration (energetic frequency) to that of a higher vibration of: acceptance, unconditional love, joy, collaboration, abundance, etc.  

I recently experienced a "spiritual awakening" that changed my entire world.   This was the end of one way of living and the beginning of a whole new life experiene.  I learned profound lessons during this time that has provided insight into the evolution and ascention of our human consciousness.  We are upgrading as a collective and now is the time to tap into your greatest version of yourself.


What does it mean to be in "high vibration"?   First thing to know is that human Beings are energetic vibrational beings.  According to Nikola Telsa "If you want to know the secrets of the universe, think in terms of Energy, Frequency, and Vibration".  According to this and Quantum Theory, everything is energy.  This shift in thinking allows us to see, feel, and interpret our experiences differently and thus we then have the ability to shift our future.


Think of a person that you truly enjoy being around.  The reason I use this example is because people with a High Vibration are generally thought of as having a quality about them that helps others feel good in their presence.  They radiate love and kindness and are unequivocally nonjudgmental and accepting.  We enjoy being around these individuals because we instinctively feel loved and accepted.  It is my continued objective and aspiration to remain in high vibration so you can feel this and become this.  It is through deep, honest, inner refection that we identify our blocks to that which we desire.  You are not alone in this journey, allow me to help and show the way through my listed services below.  See you soon.
