AUDREY FUTRELL, MA

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR & LICENSED CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY COUNSELOR

Audrey has considerable breadth of experience in multiple clinical settings.  She enjoys working with adolescents, adults and geriatric populations.  She obtained both her Bachelors and Masters Degrees at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia where she began her career assisting teen mothers with education, parent training and observation of developmental milestones for Child Abuse Prevention Services. 

She has an innate ability to connect with teens and has worked with at risk youth successfully at Texas Can Academy. She served as the adolescent Youth Program Manager at Sundance Behavioral Hospital and then transitioned into the inpatient Clinical Director providing crisis stabilization services, support for substance abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, self-harm and other serious mental illnesses.

Audrey has spent several years working with adult and geriatric populations in acute inpatient, intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient settings.  She enjoys working with those who struggle with chemical dependency (CD) issues and successfully ran a chemical dependency intensive outpatient (CD-IOP) program helping people with addictions in addition to depression, trauma, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, disabilities, schizophrenia as well as complex grief.

Audrey's approach is strongly grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT).  How one thinks strongly impacts feelings and consequent behaviors.  Identifying core beliefs and determining their accuracy is often the beginning of significant changes and more effective ways of dealing with life's challenges.

Audrey is enrolled in a doctoral program in order to offer more comprehensive services to better diagnose and develop individualized treatment. Helping the individual as a whole is a primary goal.
