About My Practice
Welcome! I’m Michelle Browning and I am licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I provide family and marriage counseling as well as individual counseling for adults and adolescents ages 13 yrs old and up. My services are confidential and tailored to each individual client.
I assist individuals, couples, and families experiencing various forms of crisis such as:

- major life transitions
I am an EMDRIA Certified EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapist and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant. I use EMDR Therapy to help individuals, families and couples process trauma, reduce anxiety, and address addiction/abuse issues.
As EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I help EMDR-Trained Clinicians reach their goals of obtaining EMDRIA Certification.
I look forward to helping you or someone close to you in the journey towards healthier relationships.
Treating every client with respect and integrity.
Helping people build healthy relationships.

- About Me
I received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and am a member of the AAMFT (American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy) as a Clinical Fellow.
Much of the work I do revolves around treating trauma, anxiety, depression and grief for individuals, couples and families. I help first responders from local law enforcement agencies with acute, recent trauma using EMDR Therapy.
The family and couples counseling work I do is spent determining the root causes of conflict and helping spouses/ family members work through emotional hurts and find new, healthier ways to interact and communicate.
Before embarking on a career in counseling, I spent 17 years working in the software development field as a senior engineer and architect. Becoming a mediator created the transition from negotiating business contracts to negotiating new ways to resolve conflicts in relationships.
I give various presentations tailored for parents, teens, women’s groups and for married couples on topics of communication and conflict resolution. I present emotional literacy and mediation competencies to middle and high school students. I give talks to high school teachers, helping them identify students struggling with depression and possibly suicidal ideation.
