Ashley Troutwine,Client Coordinator
Starting my day, I keep the client in mind. I strive to make the process of scheduling with your therapist as simple and easy as possible. As the client coordinator, I will help you get booked at a time that fits your schedule, answer any questions you may have, and get you in contact with your therapist. My goal at Millennial Life Counseling is to ensure your experience as a client is welcoming and stress-free. I look forward to speaking with you and connecting you to your therapist!
Michelle Turner, LMFT Associate
I became a marriage and family therapist in order to help couples work through trauma issues that hamper their relationship. Because of my specialty in EMDR work with couples, I am not afraid to explore any taboos you need to process about yourself or your relationship. I’m also passionate about working with interracial couples. Being in an interracial marriage myself, I understand the challenges of cultural barriers that you and your partner may experience when dealing with important life transitions. I also help women having difficulty recovering from unhealthy or toxic relationships find their joy in life and in dating again. If you choose to work with me, you’ll have to be willing to make some changes. I’m not the expert here. You are. You choose to be here because you desire different outcomes in your life and I am thrilled to help you navigate towards that path. Are you ready?
Deborah Holt, LMFT
Deborah has done extensive work with couples and families in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Have you and your partner been caught in a vicious cycle, resulting in feelings of exhaustion, insecurity, and resentment? Are you having a difficult time communicating, connecting, and relating to your partner? Maybe you or your partner engaged in an unfaithful act, overloaded with work or parental duties, or experiencing complexity in the blending of two households. Deborah holds a strong focus on working
with “high conflict” couples, has passion for families and children/adolescent issues (like depression, anxiety, suicide), or those whose relationships are in gridlock of problems, miscommunication, and unhealthy dynamics. She loves working with blended families and premarital couples who are remarrying or are bringing children (or the influence of a previous marriage) into their current relationship.
Anne Streett, LMFT Associate
Navigating a relationship in today’s world can be difficult, especially when stressors threaten your ability to prioritize one another and stay united. Throughout my work with couples and families, I like to take into account all the ways that stress may be taking a front seat in your relationship. Are you a new parent feeling overwhelmed with the profound responsibility of raising children? Perhaps the exhaustion has left you feeling lost, depressed, or wondering whether you will make it through. I have a passion for working with new parents and am committed to creating a space that allows you to grow in confidence in your new role. My focus is to widen your system of support and also empower couples to turn toward one another during this adjustment. As your therapist, I look forward to tackling the stress that is unique to your relationship, and walk with you towards a hopeful future.
Sharla Austin, LMFT Associate
I love working with clients who want to make positive changes in their lives and are ready to work hard to achieve their goals. Therapy is a collaborative effort, and working with individuals, couples and/or families, my mission is to help clients get to a place where they are thriving instead of just surviving. In me, you will find someone who is comfortable working with a diverse range of clients, in terms of ethnic, sexual and spiritual identity. I have a genuine interest in my clients' lives and I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
Liz Higgins, LMFT
My passion for helping millennial couples and individuals began on my own search for love and journey towards marriage. I realized along the way that most of us really have NO idea of what it actually takes to find- and sustain- a healthy, mature, yet passionate relationship. I believe that modern relationships have been turned upside down by the impact of social media, online dating, and the choice paradox, leading to a plague of commitment-phobia. My mission is to help couples and individuals explore what's holding them back and acquire the tools and skills necessary to thrive in the modern age of relationships.
