Brittany Lashua, PhD,
I created Mind & Heart Counseling because value people and wanted to serve my community. I wanted a place where people can be their real selves, completely accepted, by someone who vows to be their most genuine self with you.
Each person is unique and so is what they come in with. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all process. In fact, I pull from different treatment protocols to find what best fits you. This isn't a place where I tell you what to do or give advice, but a place where I join in with you in your process and we collaborate together to meet your needs. My goal is for therapy to be as efficient as possible, working through what we need to each session and maximizing a felt connection by undoing aloneness.
Education and Training
I received a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Liberty University. I obtained a Master of Arts in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University, with an emphasis on adolescents who were victims of sexual abuse. I completed my practicum internship at Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. I received a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Arkansas in Human Development, Family Sciences. I am also a part of a research team and present at conferences.
I have completed the coursework to be a certified sex therapist through ABSCT. I utilize level II Gottman material. The Gottman method is a research-based approach to doing couple therapy. I have completed Level 2 Training in AEDP (Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy) and am on the way to full certification. Additionally, I am a certified Master Practitioner in NLP.
I also enjoy presenting at local groups, churches and conferences.
