Counseling is not for weak people. It is for people who are not afraid to face their problems and who are pursuing change in their life. ”

ABOUT ME

WHO I AM

My name is Beatrice Ballard.  I'm the proud owner of Soulutions Counseling & Wellness.  I'm a native Texan, a "momtreprenuer" and a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT).  I'm also a wounded healer and someone who knows, without a doubt, that she is meant for this career.  I love what I do.

I do counseling with anyone who is a resident of the state of Texas, or with military personnel temporarily stationed here.

EDUCATION
  • Anderson University, BA, Psychology &
    General Business (double major)

  • Ball State University, MA, Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education

  • St. Mary's University, MA, Marriage & Family Therapy

  • Texas License Number: 202804

MY STYLE
  • Direct.  I don't hold back in telling the truth, but I do it with compassion and respect.

EXPERIENCE & PHILOSOPHY
 
AREAS OF FOCUS

My graduate education was different from that of a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).  The Marriage & Family Therapy major requires counseling courses with more focus on couples and families.  I, of course, do therapy with individuals but when I treat them I see them as part of a system, not as an isolated individual.

I believe wellness is the result when we treat the whole person: body, mind and spirit.  When doing therapy I use Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and also offer EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).

  • Couples (including pre-engagement and pre-marital)

  • Individuals

  • Infidelity & Divorce

  • Grief & loss

  • Stress & Trauma

  • Anxiety & Depression (including Post Partum)

  • Women's issues

  • Women trapped in the sex or exotic dancing industry
