Michelle Robertson

Michelle Robertson

Executive Director

A Texas native, Dr. Robertson moved to Wichita in 2003 as a full-time faculty member for the Master of Science in Family Therapy (MSFT) program at Friends University. When introduced to the work of Dr. Robert Melillo, the founder of the Brain Balance program, she was impressed with how well it aligned with her own training, education, and experience, and soon after began to pursue bringing the program to Wichita. Dr. Robertson earned a doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from The University of Louisiana at Monroe, a master’s degree from Abilene Christian University, and a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Psychology from Midwestern State University. She is a tenured professor at Friends University and practices as a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in the greater Wichita area.  In addition to her private therapy practice, her work as a tenured professor, and her involvement at the Brain Balance center, Dr. Robertson serves locally at Kidzcope, Inc., is a member of the Wichita Junior League, and a clinical member of The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. She and her husband have two children, both of whom have completed the Brain Balance program.
