Ryan Rodriguez, JD, MA, LPC, EMDR
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor who grew up in the Park Cities area of Dallas, Texas. I have bachelor degrees in sociology and government from The University of Texas at Austin; a juris doctor from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law; and a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Northwestern University. However, I am known for saying that my experience is my best education! I'm a therapist who has "been there, done that," with both positive experiences and personal and mental health challenges.
I have experience working with adolescents and adults in the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, codependency, traumatic brain injury, and substance abuse in sober living houses, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), and in private practice. I developed the curriculum for one of the IOPs and was a large contributor to the curriculum at another. I have planned and executed a number of interventions and currently have a 100% success rate. I have also conducted drug and alcohol evaluations for prominent DWI attorneys in the Dallas area, and I am very comfortable in the courtroom.
My holistic approach focuses on cognitive, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual health as equally important parts of a single system. In session I tend to utilize cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and attachment theory most frequently, but I will also utilize eye-movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), internal family systems (IFS), dialectical neurofeedback, and Twelve Step framework when indicated as appropriate. I firmly believe that any constellation of difficult experiences and circumstances can be transformed into a joyful, meaningful life...I have experienced this result myself, and many of my patients have reported this as well!

Courtney Crawford, MS, LMFT-Associate
Hi! I am Courtney Crawford, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and owner of Clover Therapy & Consulting. I am also a Gottman Leader, having studied the works of famed marital psychologists Drs. John and Julie Gottman. I have worked in intensive outpatient (IOP)/partial hospitalization (PHP) and family counseling settings treating adolescents, teens, adults, couples, families, and groups. I have experience working with clients dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, marital issues, teen issues, parenting challenges, work-life balance, sports-performance issues, grief, trauma, substance abuse, and adjustments to life stressors. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communication from Saint Mary’s College and a Master of Science in Counseling from Southern Methodist University. I have been married for 17 years to my college sweetheart and have teen, tween, and adolescent children.
I understand there can be hesitation, uncertainty, or fear around therapy. That is why I create a safe place to work through these important issues. I am known as being an empathetic listener and my own roller coaster of life experiences has allowed me to be an understanding and effective therapist. I assist clients in
knowing who they truly are so they can experience the joy of living a full life. I approach treatment with clients with a goal-oriented strategy focusing on solutions to problems and learning a better sense of self. I want clients to walk away from each session feeling as though they are making progress towards their goals. I approach treatment with a holistic angle focusing on cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and physical wellbeing. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) but also utilize Psychoanalytic, Solution-Focused and Person-Centered approaches. Book with Courtney here.
