Misty is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern supervised by Carolyn Turner, LPC-S, LSOTP. Misty was drawn to Tania Glenn & Associates by the compassion and unconditional positive regard for first responders, veterans, and their families. Helping people of all ages to reach their life goals and overcome obstacles is her heartbeat. She knows firsthand from her own life story that having support and self-determination, life satisfaction is possible.
Misty received her Bachelor’s of Social Work from Southwest Texas State University (now known as Texas State University) in 1995 and her Master’s of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lamar University in 2019. She has also met rigorous requirements for National Counselor Certification. She has additional training in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Suicide Prevention, and crisis response through the FEMA- Emergency Management Institute.
She has worked with a range of populations from children and adolescents in Child Protective Services all the way up to geriatrics, including intellectual and developmentally disabled. Her counseling experience consists of individual, marriage & family counseling, group therapy in inpatient and intensive outpatient settings. Her most recent experience has been with Project Parachute, providing mental health support to frontline healthcare workers responding to the Coronavirus pandemic. Being there for people and meeting them where they are is her passion, whether it be adjusting to difficult life transitions, adjusting to medication, or coping with stress, anxiety, grief, or depression.
Misty believes in enlisting a variety of techniques to guide her practice to help clients reach their goals and potential. Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Positive Psychology are methods she has found to be effective, evidence-based, and adaptable to any issue that we face in life.
She loves new challenges and is always ready to make lemonade out of lemons!
