Michelle was a co-founder of Parenting by Design with her husband, Chris, and Lee Long. She received her BA from Texas Christian University and her Masters degree in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. She was a co-presenter and co-author of the Parenting by Design content as well. Currently she is a Licensed Professional Counselor, specializing in anxiety, OCD, and all sorts of trauma.
Chris and his wife, Michelle, felt called to establish Parenting by Design with counselor Lee Long in the midst of a difficult challenge involving one of their children. Parenting by Design continued to expand its resources for parents until recently when the decision was made to close the ministry and concentrate on the counseling practice that grew out of it. Parenting by Design resources are still available through YouVersion’s Bible application reading plan, and through Amazon and other online booksellers.
Michelle is a member of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies and the International OCD Foundation. Together with Chris, Michelle recently formed Fort Worth Counseling and Intervention, a counseling and intervention practice in Fort Worth, Texas.
