Haley Pettigrew, MS, LMFT, LCDC
EMDR Trained; Certified in TF-CBT
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies and my Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Texas Tech University. Wreck Em Tech!! I have an extensive background working with trauma, addiction, and co-occurring mental health disorders, specifically within a family system framework.
I began my career as a therapist long before I ever learned about theories and assessments. I have always had a love of all things relationship and believe in the humanity of an individual. I was and continue to be a person just like you yearning to better understand my family system and the various facets of life that mold me. Throughout my life experiences, I have come to understand that we all have baggage that is carried with us throughout our every relationship. Some bags are heavy and easily seen while others can be better concealed, but they all exist and are taken with us as we transition through life.
Accepting this aspect of human life has given me a greater perspective and understanding of growth and healing. It has also helped me to learn and embrace the idea that everyone has the capacity for change. With a purposeful choice for improvement and the willingness to ask for help, you can have a life you love. I am here to help carry your bags and walk this journey with you towards healing. I understand that sharing the depths of your experiences with a stranger can be incredibly scary and I will work diligently to help provide a safe and secure environment where you can feel heard and exist exactly as your authentic self. Utilizing a holistic approach based on the specific needs of each client, I will work with you to develop meaningful goals while providing an open, unbiased, and honest perspective as you walk the path towards healing.
When I am not doing this meaningful work, I am spending time with my family. My husband, two sons, and I love spending time outdoors embracing the Texas heat or watching our favorite football teams. We also enjoy movies, spending time with extended family cooking and playing games, or cheering on our Red Raiders.
