Biography for Michal Taviv-Margolese

Michal Taviv-Margolese

In her private practice, Michal helps clients let go of negative thought patterns and life scripts they’ve carried, often since childhood. Her technique is solution focused – it’s all about enrichment whether its career or relationships, achieving personal growth or learning tools for relaxation, coping skills, creating serenity and peace of mind.

Michal’s passion is helping other's discover their own passion and overcoming any obstacles standing in their way. She gets to the core of the matter quickly. Her approach in hypnosis allows for periphery distractions to be let go of, while a laser focus is placed on achieving smart and measurable goals. Those goals become so clear that clients can feel, smell and see them, they are then “knowns” in the subconscious mind. Once that happens it is incredible to see how fast things start to shift.

​Michal’s success is gathered from her unusual upbringing and background spanning three cultures, traveling the 7 continents, her personal beliefs and strategies plus over fifteen years experience as an non-profit executive striving to make the world a better place.

Michal is a master at harnessing the power of positive thinking and utilizing life lessons to live to the fullest. In her practice, Michal sees clients in her Beverly Hills, California office. In addition, she regularly conducts sessions with her clients worldwide via phone, Skype or Zoom.

Michal has many certifications and is continually learning and further honing her skills to better serve her clients.
