Michelle Johnson, MA, LPC

Michelle has been a part of the ALCS team for five years and has a heart for working with children ages 10 and older, adolescents, couples, families, and individual adults. She is well-versed in helping her clients navigate depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, divorce, conflict resolution, major life transitions, identity, and self-worth.

Michelle earned a B.B.A. degree from Baylor University and a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary. She joined ALCS in 2014, putting into practice her love for working with children, but began to shift her focus over time to teens, adults, and couples. She also developed a deep compassion for and special interest in working with women and couples who have experienced perinatal trauma and challenges related to the transition into parenthood. In her practice, Michelle counsels from an attachment and interpersonal/relational perspective and uses an integrative approach including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems Therapy, application of foundational biblical truth, and mindfulness techniques.

Relatable and empathetic, Michelle helps clients feel welcome, heard, and accepted where they are. Her attentiveness and nonjudgmental spirit help create an experience of safety that invites clients to move toward meaningful ways of relating, healthy coping skills, and personal and relational healing throughout life’s challenges and struggles.

Michelle and her husband married in 2012 and moved to Kyle in 2017. Michelle enjoys being a mom to her two small children, serving in her church, reading, exploring the Hill Country, and continuing to learn about how best to help her clients thrive.
