Hi, I’m Grace Guyton.
I believe that each of us deserves to have healthy relationships and live a life that is meaningful and satisfying. My clients find it helpful to have a space to work through their life & relationship challenges where they can be fully themselves. My work with clients is collaborative, and I like to draw on the strengths and resources you already possess, while equipping you with greater insight, skills, and tools to reach your goals. I like to incorporate humor into my sessions and make therapy a positive experience, even though at times it may be hard work.
I enjoy working with couples (dating, engaged, and married) and individuals who are struggling with life transitions, stress & anxiety, questions around identity, self-worth, spirituality, and relationship issues. I also have extensive experience working with grief and loss and enjoy walking alongside others as they figure out what life looks like without a loved one. To best serve you and your individual goals and needs, I draw from several therapy models, but primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy with individuals. My work incorporates mindfulness techniques, behavioral changes, deepening self-awareness, and developing self-compassion.
For my work with couples, I am trained in the Gottman Method and am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator. Together, we will clarify what your goals are, learn new ways of communicating, explore emotional needs & hurts, and equip you with a variety of ways to work through conflict, increase intimacy, deepen your friendship, and get the most out of your relationship. If you find yourself in a place of frustration/hurt, feeling stuck, or simply want to establish a healthy foundation, I can help.
In addition to my training and experience as a therapist, I also bring 8 years of ministry experience to the table. While I am not a “Christian therapist”, my unique background enables me to work with clients from a variety of backgrounds including those who are questioning their faith, are in ministry themselves, or may have been hurt by the church. I’m an LGBTQ+ ally and have worked with clients of many (and no) spiritual traditions.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, traveling, reading, fostering dogs, and wrangling my family. I am currently working towards licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (expected licensure 2023) and am under the Supervision of Shaun Kell, LMFT.
