Mrs. Chapman grew up in Paris, Texas, and returned to her hometown to offer quality psychological services to her community. She is a proud graduate of Chisum High School (Class of '03). Currently, she is a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) candidate at Alliant International University. She is completing her predoctoral internship and residency at Psychology Professionals, where her primary foci include adult and pediatric neuropsychological evaluation, as well as adolescent and young-adult individual psychotherapy. In addition, she has grown particularly interested in forensic work and offers her evaluation services to the court system (diagnostic, competency, insanity, commitment, juvenile risk/recidivism, etc.).
Prior to her doctoral studies, Michelle attended Medaille College where she received a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Psychology, which permitted her to apply for licensure in the state of Texas as an LPA (Licensed Psychological Associate). She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of North Texas, from where she received a Bachelor's Degree in the Applied Science of Psychology. This unique course of study permitted triple sub-majors in sociology, anthropology, and geriatrics. Prior to attending UNT, she studied at Midland College and Tarrant County College taking courses that ranged from nursing to child psychology. She also holds an Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Liberal Arts from Tarrant County College.
Mrs. Chapman brings to our clinical team, over a decade of healthcare experience across a variety of settings, including hospitals, public school systems, outpatient offices, and community clinics. She has worked in both administration, as well as direct patient care (primarily with children and adolescents). She is currently planning to pursue full licensure in the state of Texas as a Clinical Psychologist.
As for forensic practice, Mrs. Chapman is a court-appointed mediator, having completed training pursuant to Chapter 154.052 (a) Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code and the standards of the Texas Mediation Trainers Roundtable. She is also a contracted visitation supervisor with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), as well as a court-appointed visitation supervisor. She dedicates a large portion of her time working with the Lamar County Juvenile Probation Office, the Lamar County Sheriff's Department, the various County Courts at Law, and the various Municipal Courts at Law in the area.
Mrs. Chapman has been married for 13 years and has lived in Texas, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania. (But we all know she's a Texan no matter what). When not working with patients, Mrs. Chapman enjoys spending time with her daughter (8 going on 18) and husband. She enjoys reading novels, attending heavy metal concerts (no, we aren't joking), and knitting sweaters for her chickens (we may be joking). She is also an avid player of 42. And even though she isn't good at fishing, she enjoys it.
