Tierra joins the practice and we couldn’t be luckier! We got ourselves an INTJ – Whoot!
She is currently working on the Licensed Psychological Associate application with the licensing board. Once approved, she will be working under Dr. Blythe’s supervision to fulfill the required hours to be able to practice independently (not that we wanna ever let her go) here in Texas. Till then, Tierra is going to be helping us with some testing and report writing we are behind on and catch up on administrative stuff that has gotten out of control during Covid. Rumor has it she is a wizard at moves and organizing, so good timing for us as the birth center/office move is upon us.
Tierra’s top 3 music choices are Beyonce, Bruno Mars/Usher (tie), and Demi Lovato. Her top movies are This Christmas, Transformers Dark Side of the Moon, and Black Panther.
We chatted about what things she wanted people to know about her to ensure you vibe and this is what we learned:
My clients describe me as calm, welcoming, and nonjudgmental. I am also known to hold people accountable so they can generate the change they want to see. My approach to the therapist-client approach is egalitarian. I always tailor my approach to my clients and their presenting issue. Generally, I take skills and tools from a variety of therapeutic approaches to create my own approach that I believe can be beneficial to my clients to help them build their own therapeutic toolkit that they can use beyond therapeutic interventions.
Together we will help you transform your life so you can live the life you want on your terms to maximize the quality of how you live on a daily basis.
I noticed the gap in holistic mental health care, especially when working with more vulnerable populations including people of color. I specialize in people who are caregivers, women, people of color, and family members of the aging population who may be diagnosed with dementia.
More about me and my practice:
I’ve worked in a variety of spaces with vulnerable populations who are at increased risk of having mental health and wellness concerns including people of color, rural, urban, criminal-legal system, neurocognitive patients and families, women, and children with learning disabilities. I am a strong advocate for preventative measures and I am also involved with NAMI TX in advocating for people living with mental illness.
