Thanks(michelle) Hello class my name is Michelle Leroy and I currently live in Lake Charles Louisiana. I am originally from Houston Texas but have resided here for a year or so. I graduated from Eisenhower High School and pursed an initial career in substance abuse counseling. I graduated from Eisenhower High School and pursed an initial career in substance abuse counseling. I graduated from the Institute of Chemical Dependency Studies. After I finished school at the Institute of Chemical Dependency studies I went on to pursue a Bachelors of Science in Human Services from Springfield College. After receiving my Chemical Dependency Counselor Intern License I worked for David & Ivory Ministries also located in Houston, Texas. Under the employment of David & Ivory (2009) I worked in Harris County Probation Department in a Therapeutic community with men ages 17-21.

I obtained employment from Phoenix House Foundation (2011). During my career at the Phoenix House I worked as a Prevention specialist and primarily worked in the area school districts and provided services at YMCA’s and other community centers and housing projects. While working at the Phoenix House I would provide prevention education to middle school, high school age students as well as senior citizens in some communities. It was also my job to find and connect people with community resources for life changes. In addition, to my career I also attended Prairie View A&M University in Texas and began my Master of Arts in Counseling. Soon after I moved to Lake Charles, Louisiana and began working on my Masters at Liberty University to gain not only my Masters in Counseling but to develop my knowledge of Christian Counseling which throughout my career was a missing necessity.
