Michelle Lewis


As a certified grief and trauma counselor, I help individuals and families identify, address, and move forward from adverse events in their lives through individualized counseling sessions.


For nearly two decades, I have been helping people regain balance in their lives through individualized counseling sessions and holistic therapy.  Working closely with individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma reactions due to combat, sexual assault, accidents and other life changing experiences, I have helped them reestablish their independence and move forward with their personal goals.


I work with people to understand their intense emotions and move through their pain. Providing insight and resources customized to the individual to embrace their feelings, finding peace and balance for their future.

For 15 years, I built my career providing individuals

and families counseling through the federal

government. So why leave a stable

government position?


"I wanted more out my life."


I have found there are a lot more people out there who

hurt and aren’t getting to enjoy their lives because they

don’t know who to talk to or are afraid to ask for help.

As a volunteer with Hospice Care and Camp Nabe, I’ve

been able to help provide resolution to those whose

lives are dictated by intense emotions.  I know I can

help more people move past the negative events in

their lives through private practice. How? By expanding

the understanding of the mind/body connection and

role mental health plays in our physical health.


“It’s okay to laugh and have some fun.”


To help me keep balance in my personal life; I practice

yoga for clarity and flexibility, run to maintain heart

health, and participate in kettlebell classes to maintain

strength.  To grow my family, we welcomed a three-

legged rescue dog and overly affectionate cat. Both are

now certified therapy animals.


Let me help you regain your happiness too.
