My name is Meri Rule, I have been in the Mental Health field since 2010. Some of those years, I have worked with addictions, depression, anxiety, bipolar, grief and trauma, PTSD, OCD, relationships issues, and other life challenges. My clients range in age between 8 and 80.
I use techniques unique to client needs, including: CBT, Solutions Focused, Positive, psychodynamic, family systems, humor, along with Art and Music therapies. Working together to find the most effective treatment strategies is essential, in helping you reach your therapeutic goals.
I recently earned my PhD in Clinical Psychology, November 2018 and completed my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling in November, 2010; both earned at Walden University. I also have an undergraduate BA in Experimental Psychology, with a minor in Sociology from University of Texas at Arlington. I hold several licenses, including; LCDC, NCC, LPC, and Auricular Acupuncture Specialist. Auricular Acupuncture is useful in treating chemical withdrawals, anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief, and can also be used for pain management.
My approach is caring, empathetic, supportive, and non-judgmental. I work at the client's pace and meet them where they are. Please let me help you work through past experiences and daily struggles, to build a more secure satisfying and healthy life.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Rule has really helped me through some rough times. She adapts to my personal preferences and provides me proper coping techniques. I've had a few other therapists in the past, but none of them actually helped me except for Dr. Rule. Highly, highly recommended.

I always feel as though she's there to listen to my rants, even if it seems petty. She's definitely a positive support in my life and not too many people have those these days. Thank you Meri.
