Layna Lankford, MA, LPC-S
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor. I have been a counselor for about 12 years and feel called to this work. My belief in the human spirit and will to overcome when the path is lighted is what drives me. My favorite quote is by David W. Augsberger and says “Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable”. I have been fortunate to see this in action and believe that healing can begin when hurt people feel heard; that is where my job starts. While my specialization is childhood trauma, I am also experienced in working with many other mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, marital/family conflict, and more. My clients range from 3-65 years of age. Counseling modalities I am trained in include Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Play Therapy, and Compassion Fatigue. I recently moved to Bluff Dale from Weatherford with my fiancé, Matt where we plan to raise goats in our spare time. The opportunity to serve the community of Erath County is an honor and a privilege.
