Marilyn Mclaurine, LPC
I believe in meeting people where they are at. The most important aspect of therapy is trust and respect in a non judgmental environment. My philosophy is that most people have the answers to their problems deep within. Cognitive Behavioral therapy is an effective approach to help individuals tap into their true inner selves, where solutions can be found.
I possess a Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling from Bellevue University in Nebraska. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas, as well as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas. I Trained in Eye Movement Desensitization from the EMDRIA institute in 2016. and practiced as a therapist for 10 years. My background as a counselor began in treating alcoholism and addictions.
