About Me

A living Hope, Light in darkness, finding the ability to rejoice in All circumstances. This can be difficult when life is caving in and it feels like you're standing on sinking sand. Maybe there has been disappointment or rejection. Maybe life has just not been what it thought it would be or something came flying in out of no where. You are not alone! There is Hope, Light, and Joy available. Having someone hear your story and walk down a dark road with you might just be what you need to remember and hope again.

My name is Tiffany Fontenot, and I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 15 years. My experience is broad and unique. Along with working in a clinical and medical setting as a social worker, my husband and I have been involved in ministry for over 20 years. We have also lived overseas as a missionary for 13 years where we were church planting. While overseas, I provided biblical counseling to individuals in the church and other missionaries. I've worked with anxiety, depression, grief and loss as well as family therapy and attachment disorders related specifically to adoption.

I believe that true freedom can only be found in Christ and that there is nothing that He cannot comfort us in. He gives us so many ways to remind us of this and one way might just be reaching out to someone. I believe that each person is unique with their own story to tell, experiences, and personality. Therefore, it is important to meet each person where they are at in counseling. Not everyone needs the same approach in how they will move forward in this journey and I believe it is essential to develop a counseling experience that meet the exact needs of the individual. As a Christian, I want to utilize God's word and wisdom to journey with you. My belief in God's ability to transform is integral in my approach to counseling. Along with this, I integrate Person-Centered Theory with aspects of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Theory) and DBT (Dialetic Behavioral Theory). Utilizing a Solution Focused approach sometimes is what a person needs too. I also have seen Attachment Theory and Trust Based Relational Intervention be effective for others. Working together with my client to find just the approach they need is important in their growth, healing and reaching their desires.

Please feel free to message me anytime. I understand that seeking help and support needs needs a quick response and I want you to know I'm available and will respond promptly. I offer messaging, live chat, video, and phone sessions . Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability as I try to be flexible as needed week to week.
