Dri Edwards, MEd, LPC #77626 – Licensed Professional Counselor
I am a private practice licensed professional counselor serving clients in Atascocita, Texas and clients located anywhere in Texas by teletherapy. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change for you. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and help you realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
I utilize a goal-oriented, compassionate, interactive, skills-based approach with my clients. Therapeutic treatment is collaboratively tailored to meet the unique experience and needs of each client. Because treatment is not a one-approach-fits-all, I select methods and techniques from different theoretical perspectives, such as treatment methods from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness, which will help my clients achieve their goals.
Using attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiological perspectives, I help my clients see how their self-experience (sensations, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors) makes sense. I teach skills to empower my clients so that they can heal, be more resilient, and live the life they choose.
Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
