My name is Celine Medlock, I graduated with my BA from the University of Vermont, I then moved to Houston, Texas to attend the University of Houston-Clear Lake and earned my graduate degree in psychology specializing in Marriage and Family therapy. I did my residency with Baylor University at the Star of Hope, a women and family homeless shelter. Some of these individuals were battling mental disorders, addiction, abuse, depression, family dysfunction but they all wanted to resolve their issues to work on a better future for themselves and their family. From there I transitioned to private practice. I have been practicing for over 15 yrs and have worked with individuals and couples who are battling (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, infidelity, addiction, abuse, life transitions, grief, divorce. My definition of a family is not limited to your immediate family, I believe that it includes everyone that has had any type of influence and impact on your life.
I would like to share with you my approach to therapy. I am not your "traditional" therapist. I consider this to be your journey and I have the privilege to come along for the ride. It is my job to help you look behind every tree and under every rock so that you are able to make the most informed decisions along the way that will lead you to the destination of your choice. I feel it is important for you to believe in the goals that we are working on, this does not mean that the goals can’t be altered or changed along the way. There are times when we get suffocated by this thing that we call life, when we find ourselves in this position we need to pull back the layers and get back to basics. I consider the world to be your classroom and if you want change to happen you have to make change happen. With that being said, I give homework therefore our sessions will continue to help you in your daily routine. We can talk everyday but if you do not think about our session and work on the techniques we discuss during our session and apply it to your everyday life then nothing will change.
