Dr. Michelle Echols, DSW, LMSW, CADC earned her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Kentucky in May of 2022 and her Doctor of Social Work degree in May of 2023. Currently, Michelle’s services include children, co-parenting, couples, high-conflict
divorce, substance use, family therapy, supervised visits, and family reunification. As a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor, she is looking to implement a substance use course/group for the community. Michelle is focused on community wellness. As a self-proclaimed “wellness broker” Michelle teaches people how to leverage their time and money to intentionally be well. She does this by utilizing her social media platforms to share prayer, workouts, financial tips, and mental health tips.
Michelle’s future plans are to open a wellness center. The wellness center will encompass the 8 dimensions of wellness. As of now, she has mastered helping people improve 4/8 dimensions and will contract services from other community partners to provide the other 4 (intellectual, environmental, occupational, and social). Until the wellness center is manifested, Michelle will continue providing therapy and participating in workshops & community forums to fulfill her commitment to service.
