Darby Walton, LPC

Philosophy of Care

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Mississippi with almost 13 years of experience in counseling. I have worked with clients of many diverse and multicultural dynamics and with many different areas of concern, to include, but not limited to: chemical and behavioral addictions (i.e. eating disorders, gambling, sex, internet, pornography, relationships, etc.), anxiety/stressor related issues, depression, OCD, mood disorders, relationship and family conflicts, and emotional dysregulation. I also have specialty training in the treatment of physical/emotional trauma, which is often co-occurring with the other previously mentioned concerns. My counseling style is compassionate and empathetic and I believe strongly in acceptance and respect for all. My approach combines Rational-Emotive Therapy (RET/REBT, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems/Ego State Therapy (IFS), and other modalities that are specifically tailored to each individual client.

When I am not diligently working to help clients reclaim (or to claim for the first time) the joy in their lives, I am usually working to enjoy and improve my own quality of life with my family. This currently includes my three young children (two boys, 12 and 15, and my 5 year old girl). SEC football is often involved. At other times, we will often play games, cook out, visit other family members, exercise, and watch movies. When the boys get brave they ask me to play football and soccer in the back yard.

Lastly, I believe it important to conclude by stating that I do not intend to ask an action from my clients that I either have not already done, or would not be willing to do, myself. Therapy and healing is a part of my personal life just as much as my professional life. The therapeutic relationship has to be one of mutual motivation and efforts. You've already taken that first courageous step just by reading this and reaching out for what you need! I hope to have the opportunity to work with you on your journey!
