She has worked with diverse populations including adolescents, veterans, disabled young adults, and adults of all ages, both individually and in group settings.
Tiffany received her Bachelors and Masters of Social Work at University of Texas Arlington. In her free time, you’ll find her with her nose in a book or tending to her porch garden.
From a very young age, I watched a close family member struggle with agoraphobia, panic attacks, and anxiety. Her world was reduced to home (in a time before the internet) and a few places close to home, with support from a close loved one. Her work with a licensed clinical social worker was life altering. With the LCSW’s unconditional positive regard and CBT-based anxiety reduction techniques, her anxiety became manageable, her quality of life improved, and she went on to achieve great professional and personal success. Their work together inspired me and created a passion for helping others.
1. What attracted you to being a psychotherapist?
My approach is client-centered, strengths-focused, and led with unconditional positive regard. I believe the client is the expert of their experience and that each individual’s experience is unique. I meet clients where they are and it is a privilege to hold space and assist clients in their journey. I approach our work together with active listening, humor, empathy, and an individualized and client-led approach to life’s challenges.
2. How would you describe your approach with your clients?
“Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.” - Viktor Frankl
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” - Rumi
“An abnormal response to an abnormal situation is normal behavior.” - Viktor Frankl
3. What's your favorite quote about mental health?
How honored I feel witnessing someone else’s growth. I get to watch people discover their own strength and perseverance, and I am in awe. The learning goes both ways. The work is meaningful and transformative, not only to the client, but to myself. It is powerful to witness the growth that happens outside of the therapy session through clients applying what they’ve learned to real life situations. Finally, laughter can be a refreshing joy in the midst of healing and growth.
