Tori S. Dixon (MS, LPC) is the owner and practicing clinician of Graceful Journey Counseling in Arlington, Texas. A licensed professional counselor with a background in funeral direction, her specialty has naturally become grief and loss; she practices from the belief that any barrier to mental wellness is ultimately attributed to some sense of loss. Whatever the loss, she believes that grace and space to acknowledge and properly grieve loss is the first step on the road to true healing and emotional and mental wholeness. Tori adopted a theoretically-sound, culturally-competent and faith-based approach that focuses on engaging and meeting clients where they are on their journeys. Her goal is to provide the safe space her clients need to grow fully into who they were created to be — and to thrive in life and relationships. In this episode, we discuss mental health care from a chronic illness perspective; we also address the need for culturally-competent care, and for access to mental health care as an imperative.
