As a relationship therapist, LMFT, and doctoral MFT student, helping relationships thrive is my ultimate goal. In addition to Family Systems work, I utilize Solution-Focused Therapy to stabilize day-to-day life and design a preferred future. Once a safe environment is established we will explore the root of the traumas. We will re-evaluate boundaries and increase self-confidence and self-validation with the development of strong coping skills and self-soothing techniques. I guide my clients out of survival mode to living in the present. I include psychotherapeutic yoga, CBT, DBT, attachment, and neuropsychology. I am EMDR trained.

As an experienced LCSW with 16 years in the mental health field, I aim to empower individuals believe in themselves again. I work with clients through a solution-focused and CBT approach to identify and develop the skills needed to resolve their unique challenges and situations. I help clients to embrace their truth and remind them that it is "Ok not to be perfect!". I specialize in helping people heal from trauma and learn how to love/realize themselves, which entails cultivating healthier relationships, less anxiety and more purpose in their life’s journey. My goal is to help you live life from a place of whole-hearted connection to your world. I am a LCSW (licensed clinical social worker), a Veteran, an adoptive mother, a professor, a daughter, a sister, a community activist, LGBTQIA+ Activist, a nurturer, an empath and and advocate for the voiceless. I am also a survivor of many autrocities that this world has had to offer - but I survived and proudly help others climb out of the mental muck and mire that I used to call home.

It is fair to say there are a lot of stressors in our society, some so large they can have a huge impact on how we enjoy and navigate our lives. I'm here to tell you it isn't all in your head, you're not alone, and it is ok to ask for help. I am a licensed clinical social worker offering virtual therapy to individuals in Louisiana and Texas. I utilize a client-centered approach, meaning you are the expert in your own life and I am here only to assist you in reaching your goals. Trauma-informed care is a very important part of the services I provide, as I specialize in working with survivors of trauma, with expertise in abuse and assault. I believe it is necessary to acknowledge traumatic experiences throughout our lives and how those experiences may shape our worldview. Trauma is incorporated into the majority of the work I do with clients, it looks different for us all but it exists in some capacity. I am lucky to have had opportunities in my career that have allowed me to expand my practice to include working with individuals experiencing chronic illnesses. I provide a space where folks with chronic illnesses can share openly about the confines of their illnesses and receive validation around those feelings, sometimes for the first time. Most of the time clients are having a very normal reaction to an abnormal situation, no one prepares us for the possibility of chronic illness and little support is available for those who experience it. Lastly, as a queer woman, it is important to me that I provide quality care for LGBTQ teens and adults. Too often, we cannot find providers who hold identities similar to our own. The last few years have allowed me to work with LGBTQ teens in my area and I have learned a great deal from them. I hope to continue this work for some time while growing my practice and providing quality care to anyone who is interested in working with me.

Hi! I'm Tori Volanski. I'm so glad you're here and that you've taken the first step towards getting support. Maybe you aren't quite sure how to focus on what matters or even find the motivation to figure it out. You want to feel better but you aren't even sure what feels wrong. You want to find more ways to connect with those important to you, lean into the joys that life has to offer and embrace new challenges. I've been there too, many times and I'm here to support you on your journey. I connect well with adults and adolescents who are exploring their identities and learning to embrace their values. I practice from a person-centered approach which means that getting to know you, your personal experiences, and what feels most important to you right now is what will guide our work together. I'm here to help connect the dots but you decide what the bigger picture is. I look forward to learning more about you and providing a place for you to be your most authentic self. Please schedule a consultation if you have any questions.

I utilized person-centered and strength-based practices to promote the "Power of Self." These practices empower individuals to direct their therapeutic process. Establishing a safe zone and welcoming client feedback allows methods that are effective in managing difficulties, promoting personal growth, and accomplishing personal goals. I also provide therapy services to individuals exploring their sexuality, sexually fluent, and experiencing a decrease or increase in sexual functioning. My experience includes working with life transitions (military and civilian), intimacy barriers, sexuality connections, depression, anxiety, LGBTQIA+ challenges, trauma, race-related trauma, Military Trauma, PTSD, and addiction. My purpose is to help uplift and contribute to the healing of others while affirming individuals from all ethnic backgrounds. As life happens, you do not have to walk your journey on your own. Give yourself grace and take your journey one day at a time. Feel free to contact me by phone, email, or schedule a direct appointment

Hello everyone. I have worked in mental health and education for 25+ years. I have worked with both men and women extensively. What I find most interesting is how different we all are. Far too often I see treatment as being described as "this method may help this person" but the reality is, is that what works for one may not work for another. Your individuality is what makes you special. Identify what you want to be may help you get there.

Hello, I am Tracy. Glad you are here and have reached out for help. That is not always easy. Let me pose some questions to contemplate. Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or down? Have relationships become strained or are they not the quality you would like them to be? Are you wanting to be the best version of yourself, but feel you need support from a trained professional? We have so many roles that we fulfill in life and that can be a lot to manage from time to time, particularly if we have additional stressors affecting us that we did not anticipate. In therapy, I provide space in the therapeutic relationship for patients to feel comfortable, be themselves, and share what their concerns are while withholding judgment. I am passionate about the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy coupled with Interpersonal Processes and Whole Self interventions in sessions. This integrative approach utilizes specific interventions to address depression, anxiety, uncertainty in life transitions, relationship concerns or anxiety, in addition to family dynamics. I believe that the mind and body are connected and lean toward a whole self approach by incorporating the needs of your mind, body, and spirit. I tend to fold mindfulness, meditation, art, and journaling in addition to addressing any physical or spiritual needs that may arise. This integrative approach results in patients feeling empowered, centered, and clear-minded. They have a better sense of self and improved self-care. A stronger relationship with oneself results from gaining insight and perspective, changing untrue thought patterns, and learning ways to better cope with negative feelings and thoughts, as well as primary relationships in their life.

Something you may be curious about is why I became a therapist. There’s a long version and a short version, so I think I’ll give you the medium version. I’ve always enjoyed connecting with people. I have always enjoyed building relationships with others, and helping where and when I can. I can honestly say. I have a lot of life experiences that have helped me with being subjective, and have cultivated who I am today. During my journey, I was able to spend time with people who were different than me, which has helped expand my mind, understand, admire, and connect with people who have a wide variety of views, beliefs, and experiences. After I graduated college, I worked at a community mental health agency that has provided me with a lot of experiences in many different areas of mental health. It is a lot of work, but I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with so many different people, and in different capacities. I am passionate about the human experience, and I currently see my mission as empowering others to explore their identity, discovering their authentic selves, and allow themselves to step into their truth. It is important to know I am on this journey of life myself! I’m not a therapist who thinks she has all the answers, or who’s going to give you my opinions as fact, or who will tell you exactly what you should do. I see my role as a dedicated partner here to collaborate with you and assist you in uncovering all the layers that make you who you are.

Hello! I'm Dr. Edwards, a dedicated psychologist based in Houston, Texas. My journey into psychology began amidst the scenic views of the Texas Hill Country, where I was born and raised. My passion for understanding the human mind led me to The University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology. Driven to deepen my knowledge and expertise, I pursued and earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Health Psychology from The University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton. Pursuing excellence then took me to Syracuse, NY, where I braved one of the coldest years of my life to complete my pre-doctoral internship at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. However, the heart of Texas and the opportunity for a post-doctoral fellowship at The Menninger Clinic, an esteemed affiliate of The Baylor College of Medicine, called me back to Houston, which has warmly remained my home.

Greetings to you! My core value as a therapist is that all clients deserve unconditional support and service. I am a POC (black and indigenous) and have vast experience counseling clients from marginalized populations and clients from 'alternative' communities. My approach is inclusive, trauma informed, and client centered; come as you are and know you will be in a safe, respectful, supportive space as we listen to each other and make progress in your therapeutic recovery. I am a LPC with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health. Solutions focused, Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, and Reality/Choice are just a few examples of the treatment approaches I have used to help clients reach their therapeutic goals.

My name is Brytni Johnson. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) born and raised in Texas (always in and around "DFW”). I have been working with people: moms and dads; sons and daughters; brothers and sisters; even grandparents for as long as I can remember. I realized just over 12 years ago, I wanted to "help people." I wanted to become educated and trained; learn how to better explore and accentuate my natural skills, while also being able to understand and develop new skills to best assist my clients. In 2012, I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work. In 2016, I graduated with my Master of Social Work. Shortly after graduating, I obtained my LMSW licensure, and have been practicing in a licensed, professional environment for the past 7 years. After obtaining my license, it was then, my "toolbelt" (yes, toolbelt) gained its first tool. From there, I began working towards building my clinical knowledge in order to obtain my clinical license as a social worker. I obtained my LCSW licensure June 2022; shortly after completing over 3,000 clock hours and over 100 clinical supervision hours.
