Michele Kitney is an east coast individual that finally found her way to Texas! She graduated from Andrews University with her B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science, and she is just two semesters shy of graduating with a Masters in Counseling from Southwestern Adventist University.

Michele looks forward to meeting you and quite possibly working with you too!
I’m a pre-graduate LPC intern at CAC. I have a BA in Psychology from Wellesley College and an MA in Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Austin. I’m currently pursuing an MEd in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lamar University and am interested in holistic wellness, meditation, mindfulness, and values-based living. My goal as a CAC Ambassador is two-fold – to engage with the community as an advocate for affordable mental health care and to engage with fellow interns as a peer mentor. Outside of CAC, I’m a mom, runner, writer, and scientific editor.
