Hello! I'm Michelle Broweleit (pronounced brow light) and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state. In 2007 I graduated from Regent University with a degree in psychology and then in 2008 for counseling. I started my private practice while working on my master's degree in 2007 and have been counseling since that time. Prior to this career I worked in many different fields in several states. Family and relationships are my passion and calling, both as a therapist and a person in general. My background includes nursing, foster parenting (including special needs children) and working with foster parents, adoption, teaching in public, private, and church schools, and serving my community in various paid and volunteer positions. I have been blessed with 4 biological children, 5 adopted children , 3 step-children, numerous sons and daughters-in-law, and currently 24 grandchildren. With this large family and my background there are not many concerns I have not experienced, so I have a huge amount of compassion for those that are suffering through changes in life situations.
Counseling with me is direct yet kind. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy are my most used clinical techniques but I take a very individual approach using whatever treatments will likely be most helpful in your particular situation. We will go at your pace and work on YOUR goals for therapy. You are a unique person deserving of respect and I will do my best to help you in your endeavors toward health and contentment.
My practice hours are approximately 10am - noon Monday - Thursday, and 8pm to 10pm Sunday - Thursday. I generally can respond once per morning and once per evening, sometimes more! You can also book a live session with me ahead of time. Please remember that Faithful Counseling is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away!
I work with individual, couples, and families of any age. Faith based counseling is something I love to provide and I find that when we ask for God's help and wisdom He is always faithful to provide. I was raised Catholic and then started attending various protestant churches in my twenties as a young married person. I would describe myself as a Bible believing person, a follower of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah.
