“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. ”
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 Associate. Supervised by Dr. Linda Barron MA, LMFT-S, LPC-S.
EXPERIENCE & PHILOSOPHY
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).
