Meet Michelle Alexander

From a young age, Michelle enjoyed working with children and wanted a career that allowed her to help others. Earning a degree in Elementary and Special Education from Ball State University was a natural first step. But after several years in the classroom and time as a Registered Behavior Technician working with children with autism, her desire to help at a deeper level grew. 

So Michelle enrolled in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling master’s degree program at Indiana Wesleyan University. She’s currently serving as an intern at Care to Change as she prepares for graduation and licensing. Her goal is to serve in the areas of trauma and grief, anxiety and depression, with a particular interest in the use of expressive arts therapy.

Graduate school consumes many of Michelle’s days, but she still finds plenty of enjoyable time with family, friends, and her somewhat-spoiled dog, Nala. She also enjoys crafting, seeing Broadway shows, and cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals.

As a student, Michelle is able to provide services at a lowest cost, while maintaining the same high quality as our fully licensed professionals.
