Therapy / Counseling in Tyler, Texas
Counseling for the Whole Person
Our Approach to Counseling.
At Living Well, we offer a holistic approach to counseling. Each therapist takes time to thoroughly understand each client so we can best walk alongside them. We learn about their environment, relationships past and present, challenges and traumas, stressors, and the client’s physical condition. Then we work together to determine the goals of therapy. We aim to approach the needs of each client holistically through therapies that engage mind, body, and soul.
“characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.”
The impact of trauma on the mind, body, and soul can be devastating. There is hope in overcoming the long term effects of trauma and moving forward. Treatments like EMDR, somatic therapy, and trauma-focused CBT are just a few ways we can help.
Where there is grief, there was once great love and hope. We are ready to comfort and walk with you as you adjust to the “new normal” that loss creates.

What is holistic counseling?
When you hear “holistic,” think “whole person.” Each therapist takes time to really understand each client so we can best walk alongside them. We learn about their environment, relationships past and present, challenges and traumas, stressors, and the client’s physical condition. Then we work together to determine the goals of therapy. We aim to approach the needs of each client through therapies that engage mind, body, and soul.
When should I seek counseling?
Proverbs says that “in the abundance of counselors, there is safety.” Counseling is a wise decision when you are hurting and in need of healing. There are some burdens that were never meant to be carried alone. It is also wise to seek counsel when you simply desire to be healthy and pursue mental health.
What kinds of issues do you treat?
Our team of professional counselors is trained to help with a variety of needs. We specialize in working with trauma, grief and loss, chronic stress, anxiety/OCD, depression, autoimmune disorders, marriage and family issues, building healthy relationships, identity, spiritual issues, and so much more. We invite you to explore our counselor bios to see their particular areas of interest and specialty. The therapeutic relationship is important to us. We love our clients and see our role in your lives as sacred.
If I go to counseling, does that mean I’m crazy?
Counseling is often one of the sanest things people do. We were not meant to live life in a vacuum. Counseling can offer perspective and simply the time and space we all need to process. We hope when you walk through our doors that you feel like an honored guest who is doing something good for yourself and that the feeling of shame would have no place in our waiting rooms.
How do I know which counselor is right for me?
We ask all of our first time counseling clients to call to make their first appointment. Even if you have participated in other services, it is important to us that we start the therapeutic process off on the right foot. Our guest services team would be thrilled to help you choose if you are unsure.
Do you take insurance?
Our office does not do insurance billing and processing, but we would be happy to provide you with a coded invoice for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
“I feel like Amy sees directly into my soul. She helps me move beyond the surface “symptom” to identify the root cause. She’s one of the most loving, caring, truly understanding women I have ever met. And yet she’s not afraid to be honest with me. Being with her is an absolute breath of fresh air.
“The ladies of Living Well have indeed helped me to live, well! I have benefitted immeasurably from Amy’s and Kami’s counsel, listening ears, and kind hearts. I feel holistically cared for in the presence of these wise, truth-speaking women, and have learned to think more clearly and carefully through difficult situations rather than first reacting out of emotion. I have also found boldness to guard my personal boundaries in a way that protects love, enables healing, and allows me to experience my emotions in a responsible way.”
