Michelle Rittenour


About Me

My emphasis in a therapy session is to guide clients to discover their purpose and meaning in life. I believe that therapeutic relationships are a powerful tool for change. I encourage clients in their ability to make their own decisions toward progression and accomplishment of goals.

In addition to private practice, my clinical experience includes group and individual therapy in various clinical settings. In that setting, I specifically worked with clients affected by alcohol and drug dependency by providing support groups and prevention services.

I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in Counseling and Development from Texas Women's University. I am certified in Gerontology; and I obtained this certification from University of Texas at Arlington.

My areas of specialty include substance and alcohol abuse, geriatric issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, woman's issues, PTSD, and life transitions.
