Michelle Williams

(MMFT, LPC)

About Me

Welcome to the start of your new life. My name Michelle Williams, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Dallas, Texas. With today's stigma and false beliefs about counseling, many individuals go without help. Others wait till all else fails before getting help. However, no matter when you seek help you should be able to do so with a professional who is willing to understand and listen to your story and help you on a journey to finding your better you.

I have a masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015 and a MA in Human Service Counseling: Crisis Response and Trauma from Liberty University in 2016. While my education offered me the tools and skills to be a counselor, my personal life experiences and my interaction with clients have increased my passion for helping others in need. I am currently a counselor at Christian Works for Children where I work with children, teens, adults, and couples who are seeking to understand that point in life where everything seems to be at a standstill and help to figure out what’s needed to jump-start life again. I am also the owner of private practice geared towards serving the community offering affordable counseling to those in need.

My approach to counseling is allowing the client the ability to narrate and edit their own story. Through psychoanalysis, the client is able to read, write, narrate, and rewrite their life scripts offering them the opportunity through cognitive-behavioral techniques the ability to change any situation in their lives by breaking down their stories and their beliefs surrounding their stories and the challenges they believe are hindering them. I allow the client to build and structure the counseling session in a way that it’s not like your normal counseling but more like a quiet place to think, a place to laugh, a place to shed those much needed tears, and an opportunity to take off the day to day mask we hide behind and just be.

Therefore, no matter the issue: depression, anxiety, stress, work, family, PTSD, physical or emotional abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, trauma, personality disorder, schizophrenia, marital problems, or just someone to vent to, I’m here.

I love the way she tries to understand me and relate to me like a phone call with a friends except she's an educated professional.

I've only had a couple sessions with Michelle, but within those 2 sessions she listened, she offered advice and her expertise when needed and definitely helped me understand things when I had a hard time doing so.

Michelle is a wonderful counselor! When I am trying to explain how I am feeling but can't find the words, she puts it into words for me. I can discuss important topics with her, but also enjoy laughing too. Michelle is great!!!

I’ve enjoyed working with Michelle. She is a good listener and very kind. She provided insight into situations that I had not received before and was able to suggest ways to apply them to my life.

So down to earth and easy to talk to. She turned many of my tears to laughter and I’m super thankful for her!

The thing I look for in a therapist and/or counselor is someone that my sprit is so comfortable with that I word vomit my entire life story in our first meeting and that’s exactly what I got. I know that we’re definitely going to do great work together and can’t wait to continue.

I was so scared to try counseling. Anxious. But Michelle was welcoming. A good listener. She made me feel as if I’m handling grief well when i feel as if I’m failing. I felt very reassured after this initial session.

Michelle is a great listener and really gets what I’m saying! Sometimes she’ll kind of summarize what I’ve been babbling on about for a few minutes in a really succinct, clear way that explains my feelings perfectly that I couldn’t seem to articulate and I’m just like, “Yes!”
