    LESLIE HOLMES, MS, LPC-INTERN, NCC

    Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

    National Certified Counselor

    SUPERVISED BY JESSICA CALLICUTT, LPC-S, RPT-S, CEDS-S, NCC

     

    The deepest pain humans experience often occurs while in relationship with others.  This can cause people to feel anxious, misunderstood, and/or lonely.  These feelings may present themselves in seemingly opposing behaviors such as:

    • acting out or being withdrawn at school/home/work
    • impulsive decision making or indecisiveness
    • jumping in/out of romantic relationships or remaining in less than healthy  relationships

    In light of the increasing disconnectedness we experience with ourselves and others, healthy relationships -- including the therapeutic relationship – are critical to the healing process of people across the lifespan. I provide a space that fosters safety, a relationship that fosters support, and feedback that fosters change.  Through our work together, you will:

    • evaluate the underlying cause of emotions, thoughts, and behaviors
    • learn emotional regulation
    • further develop your identity
    • learn how to set and maintain boundaries

    I approach working with children, adolescents, and adults from a holistic perspective by focusing on the relationships within the family unit whether the parent-child relationship, sibling relationships or relationships with significant others.  I provide a safe place for people of all ages to practice mindfulness, express themselves, and feel empowered.  Parents will gain deeper insight into their child, how to respond to their child in a way that fosters connection, and learn how to set limits with their child.

     

    I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern in Texas and earned my Master of Science degree from University of North Texas.  My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced, witnessed, or perpetrated relationship violence or sexual assault. I also conduct educational counseling for college students and equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning with veterans and their family members. Related experience includes 5 years of consulting for the US State Department and 2 years as an educator in public schools.
