Nancy Stroud, LCSW, RRT
Certified in Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT)
With over 25 years of professional experience, I am a therapist dedicated to my clients.
My practice features Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) since 2012, mindfulness therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Rapid Resolution Therapy is a new, highly effective form of therapy that helps resolve deep-seated issues, typically in a short time period, with lasting benefits.
I am also constantly deepening my understanding of these modalities while seeking out and practicing cutting edge treatment methods and skills that can bring my clients profound relief.
Continuing education is key to the value of all psychotherapy, especially RRT. Over the past several months, I have participated in the following trainings:
- Presentation on Pathological Grief with Dr. Jon Connelly
- Rapid Resolution Therapy Online Advanced Training by Dr. Jon Connelly
- Relapse Prevention Training
- Manifestations of Anxiety Workshop
- Rapid Anger Resolution Workshop
- Clearing Childhood Abuse
- RRT and Oriented Couples Counseling
Licensed in Texas only to provide psychotherapy and Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT).
Licensing for individual and family counseling is handled by each state, so I am limited to providing therapy in the State of Texas.
My practice specializes in trauma therapy, PTSD, grief, anxiety therapy, relationship and couples counseling, as well as relationship recovery. I often work with people who know they are suffering from or dealing with issues in their relationships without knowing why.
Many of us carry unresolved trauma from our pasts that weighs us down and gnaws away at our sense of security, confidence and stability. But, we don’t have to live with shame and hopelessness. By clearing and resolving trauma, it is possible to create positive change and see the world as the beautiful place that it is.
In sessions, I am down to earth, warm and nonjudgmental. I’m always ready to go the extra mile, meet clients where they are, and create a deep connection.
As we work together, I can help you to explore your feelings, embrace those feelings without self-judgment, and receive the tools to help you express your best, most authentic self.
Everyone wants to be heard. I believe that each of us longs to address our feelings fully and completely, but many of us feel alienated from ourselves, fearful of rejection or doubtful that anyone will listen. When I was a teenager, the people close to me held high hopes and dreams for me and did all they could to offer me the best life possible. But, some of them did not have fulfilling, rich lives of their own. As I grew up, I saw people settling for something short of happiness. Today, I know that no one has to lead an unfulfilling life. With the powerful tools and skills that are available to us today, it is possible to not only completely like and believe in yourself, but also foster healthy relationships with others in order to achieve happiness.
Before I made the career transition that led me to this new understanding of life’s possibilities, like so many others, I wasn’t sure how to create a satisfying life. I worked hard in school and earned my first degree in business administration. I soon found that working for large corporations was not suited to my personality and values, and I started looking for something else that satisfied me not only as a career woman, but also as a human being. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to discover your path in life. Thankfully, when I first started my career as a practicing therapist, I fell in love with the people and the work. Therapy is my passion and my calling. It’s an honor to offer counseling services that help my clients clear negative feelings, develop greater self-compassion and find lasting relief.
As a therapist and an individual, I also focus on the importance of the mind-body connection.
In our society, we take the ailments and injuries of our bodies very seriously. When we break an arm, we go to the doctor. It is essential that we take the wounds and pains of our minds and hearts just as seriously. Our physical health is shaped by our mental health, and vice versa. Taking care of both our minds and our bodies is key for a lighter, more engaged existence. Our days are full of challenges, but when we adopt healthy habits that tend to our interconnected needs, we can prepare ourselves for life’s greatest challenges. In sessions, when appropriate,
I will encourage you to try healthy bodily activities, such as practicing yoga and adopting a nurturing diet.
In my own life, I practice what I preach. Exercise and nutrition are very important to my wellbeing and happiness, and I particularly enjoy hiking and going to the beach. I am also a great supporter of and advocate for my son, who lives with autism. It is my goal to provide a positive environment for both of us.
My journey and my clients have transformed my perception and taught me great compassion and respect for what my close family members had to go through and what they accomplished in their own lives. Now I think of them with all the love and respect that they deserve. It is my passion to achieve happiness and fulfillment in my life and to help those around me do the same.
My office is a comforting and private space located near beautiful lakes. I do my best to make myself available to my clients when they need me. You don’t have to struggle alone anymore. No matter what you’re going through, my holistic approach can help you clear away the trauma, sadness and fear blocking your way to happiness. You can free yourself from negative feelings, honor your experience and feel a new sense of balance and freedom. Therapy truly can transform your life.
