I am the owner of Mindful Growth & Trauma Recovery, PLLC, a group psychotherapy practice located on Mopac at 290. We are a holistic focused, mindfulness-oriented group of therapists specializing in healing from the effects of trauma and specializing in EMDR.
Prior to becoming a therapist in Texas, I was a group home parent for children aged 5-13 with severe trauma histories. This experience greatly impacted me and opened my heart, leading my husband and I to choose to become foster parents to our oldest child who is now 17, (we are also parents of a spirited, home-made 2 year old). Walking beside our daughter as an ally in her healing has been one of the most transformative experiences of my life, and moves me to support my clients in building resolve, hopefulness, patience, and self-compassion on their paths to growth and recovery.
Working with clients utilizing EMDR has enhanced my work as a clinician and is a method I am deeply grateful for. In addition to EMDR I have a deep understanding of family of origin work, peaceful parenting methods, TBRI, attachment, mindfulness/meditation, family and couples work, and expressive therapy. I am also a Registered Art Therapist (ATR) and especially enjoy working with clients who are looking to deepen and explore their spirituality, or feel they are “stuck” and have lost their spiritual connection.
I am joined in group practice by two experienced and wonderful clinicians, Michelle Ellingham, LCSW (who specializes in children and teens) and Lindsey Slater, LPC (who specializes in families and couples work). We all utilize especially gentle, somatic influenced methods in EMDR to work with both childhood and adult traumas. With an office surrounded by miles of uninterrupted green space, we are lucky to be able to offer eco-therapy as well as “walk and talk” sessions for those who prefer to do so.
