I am an Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Texas with 11 years of experience helping people make positive changes in their life.
Mental Health is not just a career for me, it’s a passion. My goal is to collaborate with you in a therapeutic environment and help you understand your journey; while implementing change. Throughout our lives we all go through difficult times and challenges, but you don’t have to go down these roads alone. Together, we can help you heal wounds from the past and achieve a stronger sense of self. I want to empower you to create not only a life you want, but a life you love. Sometimes, life just happens and obstacles get in our way. Together, we can navigate around those obstacles and chose a path that’s right for you. Life is about choices, but sometimes you just need help making them.
I began my social work career working for Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. There I worked with families and children of all ages who were victims of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect.
I earned my graduate degree from the University of Houston and was trained in trauma work at The United States Department of Veteran Affairs. I am trained in many different treatment modalities including; Prolonged exposure, Cognitive Behavior therapy , motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy, grief therapy, and solution focus to name a few. I believe in a holistic and integrative approach for treatment. I believe the best results come from treatment thats is tailored to meet the needs of the individual.
Currently, I provide therapeutic treatments for individuals, couples, and children of gender diverse populations, addressing a broad range of issues including: sexuality, anxiety, anger, depression, trauma, sexual assaults, personality disorders, PTSD, life transitions, spirituality and personal growth.

Michelle has really had my back and supported me through figuring out my trauma and general struggles with life. She’s been a great help and I would recommend her to anyone
Best therapist I've ever had, hands down.
She is amazing!
I just love her all my personalities love her
I’ve been working with Michelle for a while now, and I’m completely satisfied with my experiences with her. She’s very caring, understanding, listens completely and offers a safe place to talk. I highly recommend her!
Michelle is fantastic! She meets you on your level, without judgement or pressure and lets you set the pace. She listens and provides real live applications that have almost immediate effect for the positive. I am thankful for the chance to work with Michelle!
She’s supportive and helpful and easy to talk to!
She was very good at listening to me understanding my needs and wants and to be able to recognise some things that we can work on as a team and I very much appreciate your insight and teach me new things as well
