“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 (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.

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)
Infidelity & Divorce
Grief & loss
Stress & Trauma
Anxiety & Depression (including Post Partum)
Women trapped in the sex or exotic dancing industry
