We are all here to evolve into more conscious, responsible individuals. Mental health issues arise when we are out of alignment with what is happening within and around us. As we embrace and adjust to our life situations–working through our disappointments and broken expectations–our equilibrium is restored. We feel stronger and more capable to accept what is in front of us to do, with new joy and understanding. Blending psychology with spirituality, I offer tools for self-discovery, forgiveness, meditation, healthy transitions, healed relationships, and positive parenting. You will learn how to uncover hidden strengths and be on track with your life purpose.

Michelle Hunt-Graham, MA, LMFT, CDWF I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist with a passion for helping people find their path to wellbeing. I draw on my life experiences and on knowledge gained from being certified in Narrative Therapy, The Daring Way™, Life Coaching, Brainspotting Certification, and Polyvagal Theory. My hope is to hold space for you to create the life and relationships you want. I consult with individuals of all ages, couples, families and groups in accessing resources and ideas that may not be fully considered in the hope that they might provide new possibilities and ways to address the concerns that bring people to therapy. Although I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches, all of these are layered with the Polyvagal Theory. The Polyvagal Theory is the science of the nervous system and its constant effort to keep us safe. The Polyvagal Theory details how our Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) moves between three states: Safe & Social, Flight / Fight or Shutdown in response to cues of safety or danger. Depending on the state of the ANS, adaptive behaviors (things that we believe keep us safe) and narratives change. The most amazing and hopeful thing about the ANS is that it can be pe-patterned to regain flexibility and rest in the preferred state of safe & social. As a Certified Brainspotting practitioner I am able to help clients process past negative experiences / traumas that invite ANS state changes, affect vagal tone, and generate problematic narratives. Brainspotting works deeply in the brain and body by directly accessing the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. Brainspotting is a physiological tool/treatment which has profound psychological, emotional, and physical affects. I am also a Certified Facilitator of The Daring Way™. This is a highly experiential methodology based on the connection and shame research of Dr. Brené Brown. That involves exploring topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. It invites examining the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors (and ANS states / vagal tone) that are holding us back. The primary focus is on developing shame-resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
