I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas and Pennsylvania with over 17 years of experience working as a Psychotherapist and Behavioral Specialist Consultant. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bipolar, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and loss, gender identity, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, direct, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to pursue for a more fulfilling and happier life. I am proud of you for taking the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support, to encourage, and to empower you on that journey. You can also schedule a live session (text chat, phone call, video session) with me using the Scheduler. The days/times you see are when I am available for a session, so feel free to select any slot there that works for you. I look forward to working with you!

During our time together Dr. Garrett-Moultrie gave me assignments and ways to implement new coping tools into my everyday life. Through this practice and insight from her I have seen a major improvement in my day to day life. Very easy to talk to, funny, and extremely caring and thoughtful. I highly recommend Dr. Garrett-Moultrie and I would work with her again in the future!

She is a great listener. She even catches on to things that I wasn’t necessarily wanting to put out right away. But it was like she sensed it or something. She’s really good at what she does. Look forward to more sessions and becoming a better me through these sessions
