Hi, I’m Michelle – clinician, private practice owner, MBA, Certified Daring Way Facilitator, marketing junkie, and planner aficionado!

My superpower is taking the fear and overwhelm out of the business-side of private practice. I help clinicians get unstuck and start growing! 

Grad school taught you the clinical skills you need to help your clients, but not the foundational skills you need to grow your business. That’s where I come in!

I’m a bit of a unicorn in the therapy world, thanks to my MBA and the years of HR experience I gained before starting my therapy career. Let me share my magic with you!


Michelle is an amazing coach - she has taken me from a solo practitioner to CEO of my group practice. I highly recommend her!


“Michelle’s services are informed, practical, and immediately applicable to help me get my practice on a track that is unique to my needs and desires. Her personal attention cuts through a lot of jargon and noise to help me identify exactly what I need, for where I am, and where I want to go. So worth the investment!”


“The Primed Planner helps me to keep my professional goals and self care in the forefront of my mind. It is an amazing planner for therapists!”


“I highly recommend Michelle and The Primed Practice to help clinicians with the challenging work of building and maintaining a private practice while managing a full caseload of clients. With an MBA, experience in the corporate world and an LPC and owner of a thriving private practice, she gets it!
