Meet Michelle Brownlee
Empowering Positive Change in Counseling
As a counselor, I have the privilege of working with a diverse range of clients, including children, adolescents, families, parents, individuals, and those seeking support in sibling relationships, peer relationships, and adult relationships. I tailor my counseling approaches to meet the unique needs of each client, drawing from a variety of effective modalities such as person-centered therapy, existential therapy, cognitive-based therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, play-based therapies, group therapy, family systems, and even offering classes and workshops. By utilizing these approaches, I aim to create a safe and supportive environment where my clients can explore their concerns, enhance their well-being, and build stronger relationships.
As parents, we want to nurture, protect, and help our children, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. In therapy, I provide techniques and skills that will guide and equip children and adolescents and their parents/caregivers to face life’s challenges with confidence. I will help children and families break the cycle of negative and stuck behaviors so we can start to put the pieces together to learn to control and understand those behaviors, and ultimately improve each individual’s mental well-being and the entire family system. I will meet the needs of clients of all ages with a combination of my authenticity and approachability that I embody with all of my clients.
“The family should be a closely knit group. The home should be a self-contained shelter of security; a kind of school where life’s basic lessons are taught; where God is honored; a place where wholesome recreation and simple pleasures are enjoyed.”

Embracing Colorado’s Outdoor Adventures and Family Time
I love being outdoors any chance I can get! As a Colorado native, I enjoy camping with my family in the mountains and spending time on a quiet lake floating on my paddleboard or fishing. On the weekends, I am typically found on the sidelines cheering on my teenage sons’ lacrosse or basketball teams. My husband and I try to slip away for a date night occasionally to try new restaurants throughout the Denver-metro area.
Education and training
I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Education from Western State University and my master’s degree in Educational Counseling from the University of Phoenix. I have spent over 20 years in education teaching kindergarten through 6th grade and I am currently a K-8 School Counselor, allowing me to have a tremendous amount of experience with children, teens, and families. I have additional training in CBT, SFBT, Play Therapies, Executive Functioning, Trauma, Autism Support, Biblically-based coaching, and I am a life-long learner always expanding my knowledge in continual professional development.
