Katrina Michelle, PhD, LCSW is a spiritual seeker, holistic psychotherapist, and adjunct professor currently based in NYC. Informed by her doctoral research on "spiritual resistance" and her own transcendent experiences, she supports people in exploring, embracing, and integrating the multifaceted human experience through facilitating personal sessions, groups, and community events through her business The Curious Spirit.

Katrina serves as the executive director for The American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences (ACISTE), an organization that reflects her desire to evolve mainstream systems so they acknowledge, honor, and include the spiritual component of human development. In alignment with this, Katrina is also the co-founder of Emergent Entertainment, a company on a mission to demystify awakening experiences through storytelling and art. They are currently working on their first film and series, When Lightning Strikes.

Katrina fully believes that a mainstream culture that reflects and supports this model will catalyze our collective highest potential. She is always seeking new adventures in growth and collaborators for creative programming.
