I have been in practice for 12 years in Texas. My passion is to help individuals reach their goals in therapy and mental health using evidence-based therapy and feedback to find the best solution for each client. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, active duty military service members, hospice, and with incarcerated individuals. My goal is to be your guide in finding your voice, reaching your goals, and empowering you to take the next steps in your life. My focus is solution-focused, CBT, DBT, and trauma-informed therapy.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Kirstie Carmichael. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I love how understanding Dr. Carmichael is. She is a great listener and helps give good feedback. She has helped me understand things that were hard for me to cope with and helped me build tools to do so too.
Her natural way of sharing empathy has helped me be able to show love to myself when going through difficult situations.

Thank you Dr. Carmichael!

Dr. Carmichael is so in tune with me and offers so many ways to cope with different situations and helps me adjust what didn’t work for me. She is uplifting and motivating and always on point in understanding where I’m coming from. She is focused and driven to help find the reasons for me doing certain things. She has compassion and empathy and is honest and I trust her very much. She is easy to open up and talk too. I feel I can talk about anything with ease and do not feel judged, but respected. The way she presents herself is very professional, but yet relaxed and I feel as though I have known her my entire life. Dr. Carmichael is a wonderful person and therapist and I would highly recommend her!
