Yoga Inspired

“Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” — Rolf Gates

Greer & Associates, PLLC is a practice that encourages, implements, and supports holistic methods of healing and growth. We believe that yoga can be a parallel practice to what we promote as therapists. It can help you sit in frustration, give yourself grace when you can’t get exactly where you want to go, and offer reflection on one’s inner dialogue and self-regard.

Yoga has been shown to be an incredible resource in teaching the body how to ground, find safety, access calm/comfort, and offer challenges that do not take us out of the “window of tolerance”. In books such as The Body Keeps the Score (Van der Kolk), Overcoming Trauma through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body (Emerson & Hopper), and Eastern Body, Western Mind (Andoea Judith), we find that yoga can be useful in decreasing and healing trauma symptoms, impacting self-image issues, healing the nervous system, and reducing anxiety and depression. Many holistic informed practices, such as yoga have roots in “bottom-up” processing that promotes the unraveling and reweaving of the mind and body connection, leading to more accessible emotional regulation and a greater quality of life.

Some of our therapists are yoga trained and others are just practitioners. We all value the full person approach to therapy and the impact that body focused healing can have on our cognitive functioning. If you are interested in yoga informed therapy, please inquire when you make your appointment!


You’re finding yourself struggling to regulate your emotions. One minute you think you are “fine”, the next you’re overwhelmingly angry, scared, sad, or anxious. Maybe you’re experiencing panic attacks, or you’re feeling ‘out of it’ or ‘fuzzy’ during the day. Mindfulness practice and counseling can help!

Mindfulness, meditation, and other forms of grounding have been clinically proven time and time again to be beneficial to mental health. Oftentimes, including mindfulness into therapeutic approaches can enhance positive results, and in some cases, is a staple in therapeutic approaches such as DBT. Mindfulness increases awareness on a day to day basis of mental health symptoms before they become severe, can provide grounding benefits for difficulties with dissociation and depersonalization, and help with distress tolerance and emotion regulation. At Greer & Associates, our therapists employ a variety of mindfulness techniques into our therapeutic approach. This can look different depending on the needs and abilities of the client, and working with your therapist to find the most effective mindfulness techniques is something the practice strongly encourages and adheres to. Here are just a few benefits to mindfulness:

  • Help relieve stress
  • Improve sleep
  • Increase emotional awareness and regulation
  • Reduce dissociation and depersonalization
  • Reduce depressive symptoms
  • Increase awareness of triggers related to substance use, eating disorders, suicide ideation, and trauma

All of our counselors here at Greer & Associates are trained to work with clients on improving mindfulness for mental health. Call us today!

Health & Wellness

Greer & Associates, PLLC focuses on each client as a whole – mind, body, spirit. Each therapist considers how thoughts, emotions, habits, lifestyle, health, and wellness practices impact each individual life. We encourage all of our clients to consider their entire self when entering counseling: environment, stress levels, physical activity, medical history, diet, etc.

We believe that all of us can constantly and consistently edit our lives in order to invite and nourish a healthier mindset, practices, and patterns of behavior. Throughout our relationships with clients we work to intertwine wellness practices with everyday life to make it consistent, enduring, and beneficial to all areas of life. 

A few ways we integrate health & wellness outside of session: 

At Greer & Associates we acknowledge the influence trauma, social issues, access to resources, and comfortability asking for help can have on taking steps towards wellness. We want to offer a safe place to explore and create intentions for growing wellness in every limb of your life. We are committed to helping our clients navigate harmful, toxic, bogus practices marketed as “self-care” and aid you in exploring what path to wellness feels most authentic to you! 

Walk & Talk

“A walk in nature, walks the soul back home.”

– Mary Davis

Walk & Talk therapy is a form of psychotherapy that incorporates therapeutic interactions with walking in nature. Research shows that interacting with the outside world shows growth and flourishing in affect, energy, and motivation towards recovery (Berman, Kross, Kaplan, 2012). Walk & Talk therapy is a method to invigorate the physical body, while exploring the mental landscape in a way that can improve nervous system function and emotional regulation.  There is evidence that having regular access to the outdoors decreases feelings of isolation and improves self-awareness and consciousness (Seymour, 2016)

The paths used by Greer & Associates, PLLC is nearby and easily accessible from both of our locations in Corinth and Frisco. The paths are not private, however, during these sessions confidentiality will be maintained as fully as possible. This form of therapy is completely optional and is offered by each therapist at their discretion. You will have the opportunity to leave your belongings secured inside of our building at all times during Walk & Talk – Please feel free to ask your therapist for other accommodations you may need to participate.

Some things to consider for Walk & Talk therapy: 

  • Understand that full and complete confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in this venue, and accept the possibility that other people may hear parts of my conversation.  
  • Recognize that this program/form of therapy may involve mildly strenuous physical activity including, but not limited to, cardiovascular activity. 
  • Ensure that you are in well enough physical condition and do not suffer from any known disability or condition which would prevent or limit my participation in this program/form of therapy.
