About Me

Personally

Mary Lou Tabers photo

I enjoy working with both male adult clients and female adult clients, couples and families. Areas of interest include personal growth, life and vocational coaching, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, coping with grief & loss, stress management, and season of life adjustment. I am a PREPARE/ENRICH certified facilitator and work with couples for pre-marital and marital counseling.

Professionally

Education

I have a Master of Arts degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Southern Nazarene University, and I continue to develop professionally through consultation, ongoing workshops and seminars.

Philosophy

I believe that there are times in one’s life when a person benefits from the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. My approach to my client is to combine compassion, safety, and collaborative communication.

Professional Experience

I currently am in private practice, although I have counseled in the settings of mental health agencies and school systems. My clinical experience has been in providing counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. Other experience has been an instructor of counseling courses in a university setting. In the fall of 2015, I was part of SandRidge Energy Company Wellness Week, where I spoke on Emotional Eating.
