Lacey Wright, PsyD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I have been a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Texas since 2012, and completed my Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree in 2011 from Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Illinois. I have worked with a variety of populations in many settings, including several psychiatric hospitals, an outpatient addiction center, a county mental health center, a juvenile department and runaway shelter, and currently work as a rehabilitation psychologist for a largely geriatric population. I have specifically targeted my training experiences to provide me a well-rounded set of therapeutic skills to address many life issues.
My theoretical orientation, or the way I approach psychotherapy with my patients, is a combination of several evidence-based treatments, primarily Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). With these approaches, we will explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and how they might limit you, as well as build upon your individual strengths. I believe each person is different, and my focus is on your symptoms and goals, rather than a diagnostic label. I will work with you to best address your needs and overall wellness. I value innovation, learning, and growth, and am always working to provide the most current treatment services available.
The majority of my clinical research has focused primarily on women’s issues, including the individual needs of women and their ideal treatment outcomes. Because of my time devoted to this topic, I have a continued special interest in working with women. If you are a woman needing extra support and guidance during a difficult life transition or issue, contact me and we can further explore your goals.
Mind and Body
I also have a special interest in the relationship between the mind and the body, and I believe overall wellness comes from both mental and physical health. Therefore, I also highly encourage the consideration of walk and talk therapy, a newer therapeutic approaches that involves walking during psychotherapy sessions, which incorporates the whole body. If you are interested in this service, let me know, I would be happy to discuss it with you further.
Cassie Winkenweder, Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern
Under the supervision of Cheryl Gray, Licensed Professional Counselor - Supervisor
Do you feel stuck? Have you tried anything and everything to overcome the obstacles life has thrown at you and still cannot seem to move forward? Being stuck can leave us feeling powerless and hopeless. My desire as a therapist is to help individuals, couples, and families overcome these obstacles and regain a sense of power and hope over their lives.
My clinical experience includes working with the addictions, women’s issues, and adolescent skill development. Through my experiences working with these populations, I believe the key to overall wellness is healthy relationships, both with yourself and others. Because of this belief, I recognize the value of the therapeutic relationship and I will strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment where further growth can happen. My overall aim is to help in identifying barriers and applying strengths to move forward towards a healthier you.
Beth Bolton, Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Yoga Teacher
I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas and a 200 hour registered yoga teacher. I completed my Master's degree in Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2013. Since then, I've helped people process their traumas, understand their anxiety, and manage their depression. I also have experience helping others with relationship issues, parenting concerns, and self esteem/body image issues. Through a person centered and nonjudgmental approach, I believe you have the power to help yourself reach your goals and be your healthiest. I started practicing yoga in 2014, and noticed pretty quickly how yoga helped ease my personal anxiety and depression. Yoga made me generally feel good about myself, and helped me with my own negative body image. It was then that I knew I was destined to teach yoga in some capacity, and I started dreaming of combining what I know about mental health with my passion for yoga. I completed my yoga teacher training in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2016. I love combining yoga principles such as deep breathing, meditation, and mindfulness in to my therapeutic approaches. I believe overall wellness includes the whole body. I love to teach gentle and restorative yoga to those who are new to the practice, and love to encourage my students to see what their bodies are capable of in a power flow. Whatever your goals are, I believe I can help you achieve it through therapy, yoga, or a combination of the two.
Lisa Brennan, Licensed Professional Counselor
Carl Rogers said, "When we accept ourselves as we are, then we can change." One of my great passions is to embrace the paradox of accepting ourselves as we are presently, while also committing to change. Focusing on the individual and their unique capability toward healing is the guiding approach I take in therapy. I work with curiosity to explore the distractions and negative cycles that may be keeping you stuck. The struggle for clarity is a difficult one to navigate in isolation; together we can look at patterns and behaviors that no longer serve you.
I practice therapy with a depth perspective and in an emotionally focused framework, while also integrating practical skills. My work joins the forces of the functional with the creative in order to arrive at a new and more workable understanding of a situation.
I have worked in a variety of settings, including Cancer Care Services, a Psychiatric Hospital, Domestic Violence Clinic, Residential treatment facility for adolescents, ISD School system, and an Independent Counseling Clinic. I provide individual therapy for adolescence and adults, family therapy, and couples counseling.
