Therapy / Counseling in Tyler, Texas

Counseling for the Whole Person

We consider it a privilege to be invited into your journey. Our counselors are experienced, compassionate professionals, ready to meet you where you are.

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.




A form of healing that considers the whole person – mind, body, spirit (soul) and emotions in the quest for optimal health and wellness

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.

Happy Clients

“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.

Amanda's Counseling Testimonial



“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.”
