Michelle Salzman Myers Offers Coaching for $250 Per Hour; Advertising Without Mentioning NXIVM

Michelle Salzman Myers

Michelle Salzman Myers is utilizing the tools she learned in NXIVM and from her mother, Nancy Salzman. She is working as a life coach for the Sculpted Vegan, a NXIVM member from Ireland named Kim Constable.

Michelle offers her services on the Sculpted Vegan’s website for the sum of $250 per hour.

Constable sells body-building courses and is a model, with the twist of being a vegan.

It may surprise no one that the one Salzman of NXIVM who was not charged with crimes is not advertising her longtime association with the group.  Nowhere on the Sculpted Vegan profile of Michelle is there any mention of the now notorious group with whom she spent some 17 years of her life, mostly as a coach and with their administration department.

One other thing Michelle fails to mention is that she was once a DOS slave, who gave collateral and joined the now-defunct group. She was not branded.

Her mother, Nancy, was the president of NXIVM and her sister, Lauren, who was recently sentenced to probation, was the director of education.

Here is how Michelle is described on the Sculpted Vegan [and by the way, you may book a one-on-one life coaching session with Michelle if you are so inclined. The website will guide you]:

 

BOOK 1:1 COACHING SESSION

AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

  • Motivation and mindset strengthening

  • Emotional support

  • Psychological tactics for personality development

  • Cognitive development

BIO:

For the last 20 years, Michelle has been working in the field of personal development and mindset coaching.

Her extensive experience in the field of psychology allows her to identify emotional limitations that may be stopping her clients from achieving their goals, and helping them strengthen their emotional and cognitive skills.

Michelle has worked with top athletes all over the world, and today coaches Kim Constable, helping her achieve her highest level of potential.

She tends to have a softer, gentler approach in the way she communicates, but recognizes when a stronger, more straightforward avenue is needed, or even a more humorous route. She is absolutely hilarious when you least expect it, and everyone loves this about her.

She has a strong passion and love for visual art and loves to create beautiful art in her spare time. She also loves hiking and reading.

“Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.” -Ernest Hemingway

She holds a Bachelor’s degree and resides in delightful Upstate New York with her husband and growing family.

***

It is perhaps a bit of an omission that Michelle leaves out from her bio that her 20 years of experience comes from her training in and work for NXIVM and that the curriculum was created by Keith Raniere, who is now in federal prison serving a 120-year sentence – and to a lesser extent by her mother who faces sentencing on September 8 and is likely headed to prison.

There is always a delicate balance between revealing all the things that might be pertinent to prospective clients and also trying not to scare them away – in order to gain an opportunity to do some business.

If Michelle disclosed her deep NXIVM connection or even her Salzman name, she might get very little business. On the other hand, if someone uses another man’s techniques and teachings, she should acknowledge that and not try to pretend it is her own.

Michelle Salzman Myers should acknowledge that she learned what she knows – and for which she offers to charge the public $250 per hour – from Keith Raniere.

Using her husband’s name makes her a little more obscure so she can pitch a few individuals who might pay her $250 per hour, especially since she is Kim Constable’s coach and Constable seems to have a good following of people dazzled by her sculpted vegan body.

Exactly what a life coach such as Michelle does and what knowledge or wisdom she possesses that qualifies her to know for instance, “psychological tactics for personality development” is unclear. One would have to contact her to find out.

Constable is apparently sold on her abilities since Michelle is Kim’s “personal mindset coach.”

And whatever it is, she got it from Raniere and so I say she should acknowledge her mentor – admit it. Proclaim it.

I can respect someone who denounces Raniere and stands by what they mean. I can even respect someone who stands with him and proclaims it without cowardice, but I can’t easily respect someone who wants to continue to profit off of him and his teachings yet won’t own it.

That may be my misperception but I would like to see Michelle add to her bio that her experience came from NXIVM, from Keith Raniere and the mindset and psychological teachings she says she has to offer are his and his alone.

I will also admit that had I not been reporting on Keith Raniere that Michelle might readily admit her association and appreciation of Raniere’s teachings.  I exposed what I believe is true about him and it created a rather strong avalanche of reporting that made many people shy away from owning what they truly believe – that they gained from NXIVM.

I probably would not have written this story had Michelle Myers simply said, “I was a coach for NXIVM for most of those 20 years”.

But, since she didn’t do that, it’s only fair to tell it so prospective clients can decide for themselves if she’s the person they want to hire to make their lives better.

  • Thank you for continuing to report on this story. I am speechless that Michelle chose this line of work after everything that happened- utterly speechless. It’s too soon, it’s fairly classless- and it’s incredibly disrespectful to the people that were hurt by her, Keith, Nancy, Lauren, and the rest of them. Michelle has little or no ability to introspect- which is ironic, given her resume and stated abilities. This family ruined so many lives, on so many levels, and in so many ways. I can’t believe she is trying to get on with her life in this way, given everything that happened- and that some of their victims may never be able to get on with their own lives. Thank you, Frank, for being the flashlight that shines light into the dark corners these people are trying to hide in.

  • Yup… Even Psych Today has said “mental health professionals” may be more screwed up than the rest of us lol I for one agree 🙂 They’ll never get a dime from me and I advise everyone else to boycott them as well haha

    • Bridanya-

      You are right. Generally, speaking most people don’t need to see a therapist/psychologist. They simply need to have a good friend who will listen.

      Psychiatrists are different because they deal with schizophrenics and people who are bipolar.

  • I will never understand why people pay for life coaches. Most life coaches don’t even have their shit own straight much less able to help you sort yours out. It’s just rephrasing self-help book shit into neat-sounding words of motiviation, no different than going to those speech seminars that people pay for. In short, all of it is a scam. It’s selling feel-good bullshit.

    So, yeah, can’t say I am surprised Michelle Salzman fell back on the only skill she ever learned in her entire sad life – selling bullshit.

    Good picture of her at the top though. Looking very fine there. She single? Asking for a friend.

    • Sorry, Erasend,

      Michelle is married to a NXIVM criminal Ben Meyers.

      He is the one who kissed Dani that ended up getting her locked up for 2+ years and he didn’t have the balls to help get her out of lock-up. Keith wanted Dani all to himself but Dani and Ben wanted to explore a relationship. The story is on the Frank Report.

      He also falsely represented himself in one of NXIVM’s civil and criminal cases as a Computer Expert but never disclosed that he had been working for NXIVM for years before and was currently working with NXIVM to the prosecutions and the state police. He is a really good liar and fits well into the Salzman family.

      Ben and Michelle now have a baby boy who was born right before Lauren’s sentencing. Let’s hope this baby has a chance to grow up somewhat normal and not be part of the criminal family that was started by his grandmother, Nancy Salzman.

      • Umm never mind. Friend lost interest. Didn’t realize the criminality was across the entire family, down to who they marry, tradition. I think I got the daughters confused too and can see why since the only difference seems to be one was convicted and the other wasn’t.

        Feel sorry for the kid though. If parents and grandparents believe that everyone is just a mark waiting to get scammed, don’t see how that doesn’t get taught to the kid the same thing.

  • Re Laundering Nancy’s Money

    Michelle’s new line of work — being an ‘international’ life coach is a great job to…
    ……launder money. 🤑

    Mommy has a ton of cash that needs some laundering.

    Wake up!

  • My mom’s probably going to prison.

    My sister just had a high-profile criminal case. My husband kissed a girl he saw all the time. Then she disappeared for about 2 years and he never followed up. Turns out she was being kept in a room nearby.

    I was a slave who gave blackmail material to a cult.

    Now what are your goals and how can I help you?

  • This is such BULLSHT

    She learned to lie from her mother

    For the last 20 years, Michelle has been working in the field of personal development and mindset coaching = MXIVM

    Her extensive experience in the field of psychology allows her to identify emotional limitations that may be stopping her clients from achieving their goals, and helping them strengthen their emotional and cognitive skills. = NXIVM

    Michelle has worked with top athletes all over the world, and today coaches Kim Constable, helping her achieve her highest level of potential. This is all NXIVM

    She has a strong passion and love for visual art and loves to create beautiful art in her spare time. She also loves hiking and reading. OK, his is true. She does love to draw and read. She couldn’t make a living with her art so lets do coaching.

    She holds a Bachelor’s degree and resides in delightful Upstate New York with her husband and growing family. Her Bachelor’s degree is in the ARTs no psychology but she doesn’t disclose this, it’s left for people to assume.

  • Michelle is a lovely soul. It seems like you are purposely posting this knowing well that some of your readers will harass her. You have done enough damage, just let her live in peace.

    • IMO, the question should be: Knowing that some of my readers will harass her, and balancing this with the newsworthiness of the topic, the entertainment value of the topic, and the desire to keep FR the #1 place for all NXIVM related news, should I post this?

      I’m not Frank and won’t start questioning his decisions on things like this. But I do think it helps when the uninformed callousness of the harassers gets called out. If some anonymous jackwagon is flippantly calling for Michelle to be arrested, that’s different than Susan Dones sharing experiences she’s had with Michelle. I doubt you (Mint Chocolate) would call her a lovely soul unless you’ve had interactions with Michelle. It’s easy to wield an armchair hammer, but the hammer is often misdirected by some FR commenters who are caught up in the NXIVM soap opera.

      • It is important for everyone (including the judge who might read FR) to be aware of how the Salzman family is interacting around personal coaching. The family is accused of using coaching to trigger PTSD in people and inflict harm. It is critical to know if they are continuing this. Especially now that Nancy will be sentenced soon.

        The news that FR is posting about the Salzmans is critical. It is not to spark hate.

      • Your apologist tone regarding the Salzmans is tedious, Nutjob. I don’t know if you are from around these parts anymore, but it’s been clear that our dear Nan, and now Michelle, do believe in their tech regardless if they call it by aniother name and have *continued to sell it*.

        They have parties & etc. where the remaining gang gets back together. Sure, Lauren took the hit, but even she remains suspect, only now practicing EMs on unsuspecting animals and their owners.

        • You might be right. But, I see EMs as a mostly harmless combo of NLP, Ericksonian, and Scientology. The scary thing was Keith. Keith wasn’t teaching others how to get someone to commit suicide. He did it himself. With Keith gone, the danger left with him. The worst thing about the EMs seems to be the gathering of information to be later used against the person. This practice will be eviscerated along with Keith. Not to mention, nobody who knows how the internet works will ever go to the Salzmans for serious help. Their sparse clients would only be recycled ex-NX. To me, the tedious thing is not allowing select ex-NXIVM members to move on with their lives.

    • Mint-

      Maybe Frank doesn’t want a bunch of schmucks getting fleeced into spending money on NXIVM teachings. It’s kind of disingenuous of Michelle to put herself
      out there as a professional. What’s her certifications or degrees, again? Mmh?

      Michelle has no doubt been coached by mommy on how to set up a “counseling” hustle.

      “Set the price high so people believe you’re worth it.”-Nancy Salzman

  • “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

    “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

    There, there’s some “life coaching” lessons for you, and I don’t charge 250 bucks for it.

    How weak and pathetic does a person have to be, to hire somebody to “coach” them in how to live life? What kind of loser pays someone to tell them what to think?

    The kind of pathetic losers who joined Nxivm, that’s who. The spineless brainless chumps who join cults.

    It’s a fairly straight path from paying someone to “motivate” you to “please brand me master, it would be an honor.”

    It’s the same submissive, immature, irresponsible mindset.

    Nxivm isn’t the story of an evil genius and his victims. It’s the story of a bunch of foolish mostly upper middle class women desperately seeking “fulfillment”, and the pudgy grifter who took advantage of them.

    • “ Nxivm isn’t the story of an evil genius and his victims. It’s the story of a bunch of foolish mostly upper middle class women desperately seeking “fulfillment”, and the pudgy grifter who took advantage of them”

      There certainly is truth in that.

  • NXIVM is now a taboo word.
    Keith Raniere has now been flushed down the memory hole.
    But NXIVM still lives.

    Nancy Salzman will be offering counseling sessions as soon as she gets out of the clink, with some discreet money laundering on the side.

    Nicki Clyne is a Prisoners’ Rights advocate.

    Other former NXians are involved in MLM sales operations.

    All of these stories lead me to wonder why Allison Mack would be studying Psychology at a California Community College.
    That was the report of a recent commenter.

    • “All of these stories lead me to wonder why Allison Mack would be studying Psychology at a California Community College.”

      Because she’s trying to figure out how Raniere manipulated her….

  • $250 for a session with a life coach is pretty typical, at least here in California. Competence and skill vary greatly, as anyone can claim the title of coach and start a business. Unlike in psychotherapy, a life coach can make innumerable claims about the nature of experience, mind, pathology, and it is all fair game. That said, most forms of treatment or coaching tend to work, not due to the particular formulation, but due to common factors.

    If Michelle’s offerings have these factors (empathy, connection to others, restoration of valued activity, progress towards a goal, etc.), it is likely some will be helped, and that’s always good. But I’d be concerned if her work is based on Keith Raniere’s teachings, where the overarching structure is the product of a fair bit of rumination, and less empiricism. I don’t think his work was actually a step forward in our collective understanding, no more than Scientology was ever going to transform humanity. And while ethics was a common theme, there was never a structure of accountability around ethics. Bash psychotherapy all you want, but life coaches also are not accountable to an ethical standard. If Michelle wants to continue Raniere’s work without an ethical standard, well….this is just a real red flag, caveat emptor.

  • Licensed therapist here. I’m scratching my head at her “areas of expertise” section. “Cognitive development” does not mean what she seems to think it means. I’ve never seen it attached to a life coach’s bio. Cognitive development refers to childhood development involving how they think, develop skills, etc.

    Similarly, she refers to “personality development” when I think she means personal development and growth. I don’t take issue with any of this — she can market herself any way she pleases — and life coaches often take liberties with psychological concepts and language, that’s not uncommon. But if she is going to claim areas of expertise, she might want to cite legitimate areas in the field of life coaching.

  • “She is working a life coach for the Sculpted Vegan, a NXIVM member from Ireland, Kim Constable.”

    This sentence is confusing. Do you mean she works AS a life coach WITH a former NXIVM member, Kim Constable?

  • If anyone thinks Kim’s website has leftover or stale info, you are wrong.

    When Frank first published a story about Kim Constable on August 10, 2021, Michelle was charging $600 for 4 sessions, as Ice-nine noted in his comments (see link below). So, very recently Michelle has changed her marketing to now 4 sessions for $1,000, but you get a 5th session for free! And really, what price can you really put on one more chance to be brainwashed, branded, and engulfed into a criminal racketeering enterprise? There’s just no downside to the amazing deal!

      • I would doubt she has ever paid any taxes. If she was involved in Rainbow, I’m sure there are all kinds of laws broken there too. Probably in the grand scheme her crimes were more minor relative to the others.

        Her biggest crime is a crime against humanity by procreating with Ben Myers.

  • LOL. Who are the clowns willing to fork over $250 per hour for “life coaching”? That’s highway robbery.

  • “psychological tactics for personality development”

    I called her out on that first, Frank, you motherfucker. Give Ice-nine his credit!

    Literally nowhere on the entire internet does that exact phrase exist lmfao. It is completely made up and total nonsense.

    And by “top athletes all over the world”, she means:

    1. Clare Bronfman, a legitimate world-class equestrian at one time, currently serving an 81-month sentence.
    2. keith raniere, a three-sport stud. Former east coast judo champion, 100 m dash record holder, and first-team All-YMCA volleyball player.
    3. A bunch of starved women forced to run 20 miles per week or pictures of their hairy vulvas will be released to the internet.

    • Ice Nine you deserve significant credit for this. and the top athletes is right on. Also include Pam Cafritz and Sylvie who both ran so much they got very ill from the combo of overtraining and too little food.

    • Michelle learned from ‘mommy’ there are plenty of sUcKers out there who will believe if someone is charging $250hr — it must be worth it.

      Nancy must be so proud of her oldest.
