I’m truly happy to see you here.



Dr. Michelle Barr

Transformation and Transition Expert

I’m Dr. Michelle Barr, and I’m so happy to share my expertise and experiences with you.

    With a Doctorate in Transformational Spiritual Coaching and a Masters Degree in Counseling and Guidance, she has been helping people transform their lives for more than 25 years. She spent ten years as a therapist specializing in crisis and trauma before giving up her license to build her business as a coach, teacher, and speaker.

For the past 15 years, she has been helping her clients release their junk, and MOVE into their destinies.

     While working as a therapist, Dr. Barr specialized in crisis and trauma, addiction and abuse, generational dysfunctions, and personal growth and development. She went on to attend seminary, becoming ordained as an interfaith minister, and worked as a hospital and hospice chaplain, as well as a spiritual director for multiple local agencies. 


     Fifteen years ago, she left her therapy practice behind to found her own healing and wellness center in her community, which quickly turned into a global online business. Through The Barr Institute, Dr. Barr helps others both personally and professionally to heal and transform all areas of their lives, then go on to help others do the same. Dr. Barr believes healing should always be able to be replicated.

     Michelle and her husband have been married for over 30 years, and their family includes one son, two daughters, and most recently, their first grandbaby.  She and her husband live in Dallas, TX and enjoy a summer residence in Lily Dale, NY.

     Michelle is the Founder and Creator of the Barr Institute. Through her coaching and training, her programs and classes, her retreats and masterminds, she provides a high level of support and guidance, empowering her clients to create the work and life they desire and resolve all that is getting in the way, so they can show up in the world with clarity and confidence and deliver their soul work to those who are waiting for it.

My Signature Approach

My signature method for unlocking the life you want is to help you – or your business – MOVE. Here’s what it looks like.

Make a Decision

This can be the hardest part, so this is where we spend a significant amount of time, to help you understand what options you have, and how you want to MOVE forward.

Own It, 100%
Once the decision is made, you have to own it, 100%. This means showing up to your life or your business in entirely new way. We eliminate the second guessing, the pressure of failure, and the tension of fear versus love here.

Visualize It

Now, things start to get real! You have to visualize what your life looks like in light of your decision, and constantly show up as the person who is already living that life.

Execute It

Your decision is only as good as your desire and ability to execute it. So let’s outline a specific plan, and get to stepping!


“Two things you have taught me that are HUGE SHIFTS and SO POWERFUL that will stay with me forever. It is not for me to worry how I make the money. It can come in many ways. It is all around me. It is for me to make a valuable contribution.

Create a Vision of the life you want to live and then create a business that supports and sustains that. Michelle, you are worth your weight in GOLD! Thank you so much!”
