About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I work intuitively. When I'm working with a client I am "led" to what the underlying cause of the presenting issue is. Then I guide my client to releasing the underlying cause. This creates a much deeper healing than traditional hypnosis. All of my hypnosis sessions are personalized. I rarely use hypnosis scripts. During our session we talk and I take notes and from those notes and with some inspiration your hypnosis session is created during your experience. It's very energizing! I do use a base script for smoking cessation. It's the best one I have found to stop smoking in ONE session and it's also personalized to your challenges and obstacles.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The work that I do is an expression of who I am. I don't do what I do just to make a living, I do it because I LOVE it. Watching my client's face light up as they "see" in a new way is most fulfilling.

    Michelle Lee is awesome. I had wanted to quit smoking for many years but found the process to be very difficult and daunting. Enter Michelle Lee with her Hypnotherapy. Went in a smoker and came out a nonsmoker, it has been almost 2 months and I have never looked back, no cravings, no discomfort, no expensive nicotine replacement or pills. This is truly something to try if you really want to stop smoking. Thanks to Michelle and to your health!!!

    Michelle and her therapy were life-changing. She gave me the tools to move forward in my life so that I can be happy and start a new chapter. Her ability to help others is such a gift. Thank you Michelle! Anna

    When I first came to see Michelle, I was six months into a recovery program for codependency and six months out of a two-year relationship with a married man. Every day I was battling mental and emotional demons that were threatening to consume me at any point in time. Emotionally I don’t think I could have handled any more pain, any more tears than I was already living. Mentally, I was tearing myself down every chance I got, beating and hating on myself more than any person deserves. To say I had hit an all-time low would be an understatement. I was at the bottom. Death would have been a welcome relief. I learned about Michelle from my sponsor in recovery. I was already seeing small changes in my self-awareness and self-love by working the recovery program, but was still in so much unbearable pain that I jumped at the opportunity to further my healing. Having been to see counselors and therapists since I was in my early teens, I was familiar with how the process worked and even a little skeptical. But the appeal of this kind of recovery was that it would emotionally free me from my past. Making the appointment to see Michelle was the most hope I had felt in years. During my first meeting, Michelle asked me some general questions about where my anxiety stemmed from and what my biggest problem areas were, and along with some deeper probing questions that brought my emotions to the surface. We decided focused on my fear of abandonment and need to be “picked” by the people I love the most – from my nuclear family to my romantic relationships. Michelle guided me through my toughest relationships, using her intuition to advance the tapping and healing process, and lower my emotional attachment from a 10 (what felt like was 100) to a 1. I couldn’t believe it! I felt an openness in my heart space I’d never experienced before, a freedom that hadn’t existed. I could breathe. I could feel. I wasn’t scared anymore. It was as if the tares were being sewn back together, one at a time. Granted, I had a lot of them. But that was ok, because now there was a solution, not just a problem anymore. I have had the opportunity not only to experience the healing Michelle’s EFT practice provides, but to witness the freedom, strength and hope it brings to some of my most dear loved ones. I am incredibly thankful for her and the rapid healing EFT has brought to my life.

    Michelle was amazing! I have to say I was wondering if this really would work. I have smoked for 38 years, or should I say... I DID smoke for 38 years! I truly can not put into words how much I appreciate her and how she has changed my life! Thank you Michelle!!! Tammi H Surprise, Az

    Congratulations, Tammi, for being a NON-smoker! Great work. Here's to your new healthy lifestyle. Blessings, Michelle

    It's really difficult to put into words what Michelle has meant to me and means to me. I have been working with her for about 9 months or so. It is an understatement to say that she has changed my life. When I first went to see Michelle I didn't know what to expect. I am a much, much happier and loving person now and feel that I can deal with whatever comes my way. She is kind, loving, gentle, very perceptive and a straight shooter. She listens very well and does not hesitate to make suggestions as to what to do next. Michelle has been largely responsible for my complete turnaround. She always exceeds expectations and is always generous with her time. If she did her work any better than she does, someone would have to declare her to be a saint.

    Thank you, Martin. It's a pleasure to work with you and see the great strides you have made and continue to make.

    Working with Michelle has changed my life. I went to her seeking help with my weight. I didn't realize how deep some of my issues were with my mom and after what seems like a lifetime of anger and bitterness I was able to forgive her and completely change our relationship. I would have never believed this could be done if I hadn't experienced it for myself. INCREDIBLE! I took a short break and now I'm ready to go back to finish dealing with my weight

    Thank you, Sue! As you now know to be lighter in mind is to be lighter in body. Our physical state is a reflection of our emotional state. You are so much fun to work with.

    Michelle Lee is amazing. Her EFT and hypnosis program works like nothing I have ever experienced before. Through her safe and effective method, I was able to “tap" into the places within that held me back from all I desired my life to be. She worked with me for well over a year, compassionately assisting the releasing of emotional blocks that were holding me back.

    I am so glad to be sharing the life changing experience I had while being a part of your class – Weight Loss through Self Love. My original expectation was to just be hypnotized to lose weight but what I actually received were tools to help me live a more joy filled life. Before attending the class I really did not know what it meant to “love myself” and I had been in a serious depression for over a year. Learning and applying EFT was the key to changing my life, I have never felt such freedom. EFT is now a wonderful tool that I have learned to apply to not only weight loss and exercise but to any area of my life. After years of diets that have not worked I can truly say the combination of the EFT and the hypnosis are the keys to losing weight for me. Your hypnosis was so powerful and effective that I can say with confidence that today, I love and accept myself. Thank you for helping me!

    Thank you, Linda! I am so happy you benefited from our work together. Blessings, Michelle

    Our thanks to Michelle and EFT. Michelle has been working with my wife and I for a little over a year with great success. When my wife, Mary, first visited Michelle, she was using a wheel chair. After one session, she was able to get along without it. In the beginning we did 20-30 minutes of EFT, both in the morning and the evening, to keep her pain free. We now use EFT whenever we have any pain, regardless of the cause, from headaches to stomach problems to foot problems. It is also a great way of reducing stress from the work place. We have now moved to the phone sessions and are working on prosperity and our mind set about money. We have not yet achieved what we want, but do see lots of improvement. The phone sessions are a great way of doing the sessions as we can listen to them more than once. It is surprising what you miss the first time and can pick up the second time. Our special thanks to Michelle for such a wonderful help with our lives Smokey and Mary Berquist

    Thank you, Smokey and Mary! I am blessed to know you. Blessings, Michelle


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I begin with a complimentary consultation. Let's chat and get to know one another. I know that I get great results with my clients, but you don't know that. I also know that you may be a worried about finding the right practitioner for you. Let's just get to know each other and determine what your goals and challenges are. Then we can move forward.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a certified Hypnotherapist for 14 years, Emotional Freedom Practitioner for 11 years. I have developed countless workshops and programs for my clients. I have developed a training program called Deeper EFT by Michelle Lee to help other practitioners to get the powerful results that I do with my clients.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with women and men to eliminate fear of successfully stepping into their power. For instance, women will often sabotage themselves by failing tests (licensing tests i.e. Real Estate, Counseling). Sometime we experience a lack of self-worth which creates self-sabotage. I help you eliminate the emotions and experiences that lock in a sense of unworthiness within your subconscious mind, freeing you to experience the rewarding life that you deserve. Many times in order to release unworthiness, I lead my clients through healing past traumas including sexual abuse. Shame and guilt about past events can lead us to continued self-sabotaging behaviors.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Go with your heart. Many coaches are great at selling you their services but then the service itself is less than desirable. Trust your instincts. Don't ever purchase a long-term contract with a coach unless you get to purchase a session to really get to know how they work. I speak from experience. In addition, if a coach knows he/she is good at what they do they will allow you to "try" them out for a single session simply so that you know that the two of you are compatible. Not every coach is for everyone.
