About Michelle

BIO

Michelle achieved a BA from Midwestern State University in 1996 with a major in Psychology and minor in Sociology. Michelle went back to school for teacher certification and was a teacher for two years. Michelle decided to begin graduate school at MSU in 2002. She obtained her Master’s degree in Education in 2005–school counseling. In 2006, she went back for more hours for general counseling. Michelle was a school counselor/testing coordinator for a year then received an opportunity to work at a geri-psych outpatient unit. Michelle worked almost five years at outpatient programs then worked at an inpatient hospital for awhile. Then, Michelle decided to go back to her roots to outpatient treatment–as she felt that witnessing longer term growth was more self-rewarding. In August 2013, she became a licensed professional counselor supervisor to supervise LPC-Interns. Michelle started this part-time private practice in Late April 2014.
