Professional Counselor I, Supervised by Abbie Satterfield LPC-S

Personal Statement:
Michelle RobichauxI am so delighted to be a part of the Student Counseling Services staff here at Texas A&M University! While I have worked with many different populations throughout my counseling journey, the college population has by far always been the one that I have been most drawn to work with.

For many students, college can be a time of self-reflection and self-discovery, but it can also be a very difficult and isolating time in one’s life. This can sometimes cause students to feel overwhelmed as they try to learn how to navigate this transition. As human beings, I believe that we all have a natural desire to find fulfillment and authenticity in our lives. Thus when we are faced with challenges that threaten or prevent us from achieving this goal, we can find ourselves feeling disconnected from others and potentially repeating negative patterns in our lives.

The good news is that you do not have to face these challenges alone – that is what counseling is for!  My ultimate goal as a counselor is to create a safe space that is non-judgmental, compassionate and honest for every single client that I work with. So that we, as a team, can work together to identify and change the barriers that prevent them from embracing their true, authentic self! I feel so fortunate that have the opportunity to work with students to help them process and overcome whatever challenges they may be facing. When I’m not at work you can catch me reading, journaling, spending time outside, visiting with friends and loved ones and occasionally binging watching my favorite Netflix shows.
