If any of the above scenarios applies to you, then please let me help! Over the last 8 years I have worked with teens who struggle with a huge range of challenges over the years from suicidal ideation, self harming behaviors, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, personality disorders, amongst many others. I believe my job is to be of help so when a client goes from struggling to thriving, this is what it is all about. I love seeing my clients who are willing to do work in and out of session, benefiting from the counseling process and healing along the way. Please give me a call if you are seeking counseling and are ready for positive change to occur.

I use a multisensory approach to counseling and at times I use a variety of theories in one single session depending on the needs of the client. This creative approach that leads to flexibility on my part, makes a real impact in the results that my clients see from each counseling sessions. Using this multisensory approach leads my clients from struggling to thriving in a short amount of time. If you are interested in seeing real results by the impact of this approach, please give me a call.

About Me

Personally I enjoy hiking, forest bathing, cooking, listening to records and art. I love to study and continue to improve, filling my bucket over the years with a variety of degrees, as well as skills I have gained from the many conferences and workshops I have attended. I am bilingual, having lived in Monterrey, Mexico while I received by MBA in 1995. From there I had several different jobs and landed in education in 2008 when I taught high school Spanish for six years. While teaching, I started the graduate program in counseling at The University of Texas at San Antonio. In 2014 I graduated and became a high school at-risk counselor where I enjoyed offering my services to students who are at high risk and have a multitude of concerns. Today, I continue to work with middle and high school students as a crisis intervention counselor in an alternative school setting and I offer individual and group counseling to best meet their academic, emotional, mental and social needs. I received my LPC in the Fall of 2018. I opened Consulting By Michelle, PLLC in January of 2020 with the idea of getting to help more people. I offer professional counseling, happiness engineering and public speaking services. Please contact me for more information.
