Hello! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and have been licensed with the state of Texas for over 15 years. I have had my own Private Practice for the past 14 years. My entire career has been focused on working with individuals and families as they work through significant life changes and challenges. My approach to therapy tends to be Client-Centered. This means you will play a very active part in directing the sessions and we will work together to set goals. Although I have extensive experience in working with children, teens and families, I feel working individually with adults and teens may be the best use of my skills on this platform.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Family conflicts, Grief, Anger management, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Abandonment, Adoption and Foster Care, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Codependency, Dissociation, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Gender Dysphoria, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Narcissism, Polyamory / Nonmonogamous Relationships, Post-traumatic Stress, Self-Harm, Self-Love, Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy

It was amazing to see my perspective change over time. Michelle managed to coach me into a better mindset and see things from a new perspective. I will always remember the “Well” analogy!

Helped me get through grieving from my moms passing and also helped me to get out of a toxic relationship. Michelle helped me talk through some tough stuff and I would definitely come back in the future if needed.
