Meet Our Team
Mental health is so important for everyone, but especially for those living with t1d and their caregivers. Our certified counselor and T1D parent, Michelle Tubilla, is here to stand by you and/or your child's side as they walk through life with type one diabetes.
"Personally, I enjoy hiking, forest bathing, meditating, listening to records and art. I love to study and continue to improve, filling my bucket over the years with a variety of degrees, as well as skills I have gained from the many conferences and workshops I have attended. I am bilingual, having lived in Monterrey, Mexico while I received by MBA in 1995. From there I had several different jobs and
landed in education in 2008 when I taught high school Spanish for six years. While teaching, I started the graduate program in counseling at The University of Texas at San Antonio. In 2014 I graduated and became a high school at-risk counselor where I enjoyed offering my services to students who are at high risk and have a multitude of concerns. Today, I continue to work with middle and high school students as a crisis intervention counselor in an alternative school setting and I offer individual and group counseling to best meet their
academic, emotional, mental and social needs. I received my LPC in the Fall of 2018. I opened Consulting BY Michelle, PLLC in January of 2020 with the idea of getting to help more people. I offer professional counseling, happiness engineering and public speaking services. I am a parent of a child who was diagnosed with type one diabetes at age six and currently collaborate with Type One Together. I am happy to offer my services to all those who may need!"

“I am a Registered Dietitian and Type One Diabetic with a passion for building communities, confidence and preparedness so you can face this world with T1D. Since my diagnosis I have spent time thinking about our attitudes toward food, nutrition, and our bodies. I believe you are a human first and you are capable of much more than you think!
I am truly excited to help you along your journey and get you to a place of making powerful choices so that your body can support your life and not hinder it."
What people are saying...
Raquel helped me look at my life as a whole picture rather than just the numbers. There is so much that my doctor & care team didn’t tell me at diagnosis. Not only did a few small switches drop my a1c from an 8.2 to a 7.1, I finally feel confident in my ability to manage and can sleep soundly at night.”
“After babysitting for T1D families throughout college, I quickly noticed there was a huge gap to be filled in type one education. Many parents felt defeated and hopeless when it came to their child’s t1d management, as did my own mother growing up. Although I am thankful for my doctors, I was left to figure out so much of diabetes on my own.
I have finally reached a place where I live happily with T1D and have achieved the A1C/time in range that makes me feel more myself than ever before! Creating my own diabetes community has truly been life changing and I can’t wait for you to be part of it!
When working with me, we will dive into all things life, diabetes and everything in-between. Whether you are a parent managing your child’s t1d or you are living with diabetes yourself, working to improve your relationship with the disease is everything! Creating mindset shifts around the way you look at both diabetes and life as whole can translate to huge transformations in your happiness and health. Let’s get started!”
