Hello, my name is Michelle Smith. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I have been a licensed counselor for 10 years, during which I have worked with a variety of clients in different settings. My experience includes working with clients who have depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. I have worked with clients who have experienced or are experiencing trauma, grief, family issues, relationship issues, anger management, and substance use.
I believe that all people possess the ability to change and I will provide you with unconditional positive regard and support as you strive to reach your goals. My style of counseling combines solution focused, client centered methods as well as techniques from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy).

She’s amazing! And she keeps in touch to check on her patients.
Definitely a great person, with the skills needed to provide fruitful advice.
Michelle has been great. She's a really good listener and is able to contribute and provide appropriate guidance as necessary. I've very much appreciated that guidance.
Michelle has been an amazing therapist. I have done therapy face to face before coming to BetterHelp and have loved the flexibility and availability that Michelle has to work around a chaotic schedule.
I have always recommended therapy to my friends and now BetterHelp is a part of that recommendation.
It’s been a great experience so far.
She’s awesome, focuses on what you can do everyday to build mental and emotional strength. I feel much better after working with Michelle!
Really great counselor that has helped me work with some really tough issues. I recommend her for anything experiencing major life changes, anxiety, and depression,
Michelle is a fantastic therapist that provides great, practical recommendations.
She has been wonderful in our conversation and sent me a lot of worksheet to help with anxiety and depression
I’ve been working with Michelle for over a week now, and so far I’m really happy with how responsive she’s been and how helpful she’s been. She’s been able to really hone in on my issues so far and I look forward to working with her more.
When I first joined a BetterHelp, I didn't connect with counselors right away. I continued to search and I found Michelle who has been a perfect match for me. She has been a wonderful source for support and encouragement. She gives me activities and worksheets that I have learned a lot from. I'm very grateful to have her as part of my recovery team. I've noticed a significant improvement in my mental health since working with her.
Michelle is amazing. All the methods she suggested worked like a charm. She really gets to know and understand the situation. I couldn’t have been more lucky to get Michelle as my therapist.
Michelle truly listens to you with clear aim for things to be better. She does this thing where she'll rephrase what you said to her in her own words, to which you can agree or disagree with- it's refreshing if you have people that regularly talk over you without listening to what you have to say.
