Welcome to The Adult Chair

Michelle Chalfant has been a seeker her whole life. Through her journey of discovery and decades of work as a therapist, she has developed an approach to understanding the struggles we all experience as we move through the world each day. In The Adult Chair, we’ll be using Michelle’s holistic approach to healing and transformation as a foundation for better understanding our relationship with ourselves. Along the way, we’ll host an ongoing conversation around stress, anxiety, depression, physical health, self-love, peace, emotional balance, and how our understanding of ourselves impacts the most important relationships in our lives.

My friend shared your podcast with me last week. Thank you for breaking down our complex thoughts/emotions in a way that is much easier to grasp! I absolutely love the chair analogy. It has helped me so much!

The Adult Chair: A Guide to Loving Yourself

I have seen thousands of clients during the 20 years I have been in private practice as a psychotherapist and coach. We have worked on a wide range of issues ranging from depression and anxiety to codependency and relationship problems with spouses and children, from weight loss and body hatred to job and money struggles. During that time, the Adult Chair model has proven to be the most simple and profound way I have found yet to help individuals and couples navigate the world as centered, peaceful, empowered people. 

How can I say this with such confidence? 

I have spent most of my 20 plus years in practice searching for new, different, and better ways to help people. I’ve tested the best with actual clients. Some of the approaches and models were just different twists on tradition, while others (like energy medicine, meditation, neurolinguistic programming and acupressure) were a bit more radical. The tools and approaches that really worked became part of my unique practice, and my clients have benefitted by experiencing much better results in much shorter time.

What you're about to buy is the best of those tools. 

I'm thrilled to offer this introduction to the Adult Chair to you today and start you on your own journey of discovery!

Dearest Michelle, to say that I have changed is an understatement. I am a new person because of the work I have done with you. Learning how to sit in my Adult Chair has given me back the power that I lost and raised the self - esteem that I never had. I wish I could find words to express the gratitude that I have for your work and your time with me. You are truly an angel. Thank you for everything.
— Christina S.
Dear Michelle, where do I begin? In two sessions with you, you have given us more than our other therapist did in 2 years! My husband and I are thrilled to have found you. The work you are doing with the chairs in incredible and so valuable for individuals and couples. We both love your approach and plan to recommend our friends see you so we can all speak the “Adult Chair language” together. We are thrilled to have found you.

Michelle is like a chiropractor for your soul.

Michelle, I have no words for how grateful I am. The biggest news is that I am off my anxiety meds! This adult chair work has changed my life profoundly. I am forever better thanks to you and the work you are doing. Please don’t ever stop, people need you in our world. Thank you so much for all you do.
— Eva S.

This week, we're talking about EFT, or "Emotional Freedom Technique." You may have heard of it referred to as tapping for short, and it's one of my favorite tools for helping my clients break free from anxiety, depression, generalized stress — even physical pain and performance issues! It involves tapping along your meridian system with your fingertips — the very same meridians you may be familiar with in acupuncture — to help move clogged emotional energy through your system.

Public Speaking

Michelle is available to join your group or event to present her work dedicated to living authentically in The Adult Chair. Her honest and engaged style allows her to lead groups through difficult challenges — as individuals and teams — with grace. Her work brings groups together and cultivates the natural and authentic community within us. 

Michelle is equally adept as a keynote speaker with corporate groups undergoing complex change or reorganization as she is with associations in healing circles and individuals seeking personal growth. Her strength is in demonstrating the power of authentic living, and the strength we can apply in our personal and professional lives when we begin this work.

For more information, please submit the speaking inquiry form below with details on your event. We will be in touch within a business day.
