THE MEANING OF TIDEMARK

Tidemark Therapy was formed in October 2014 by Brittainy Wagner. The very essence and definition of Tidemark means “the point that something or someone has reached, receded below, or risen above.”

It is my belief that, by working in conjunction with a counselor, you can gain new skills and new perspectives on living so that you can rise above whatever obstacles are hindering your life path. Once you overcome these obstacles, you will be able to live the type of life that YOU want to live. With that being said, the power to overcome what is troubling you lies in how much determination and motivation you possess. Much like the phoenix, you have the power to rise from the ashes and be transformed.

I have seven years in mental health experience, and have been providing counseling services for over three years to people in the Grayson, Cooke, Fannin, and Bryan County areas. I am trained in Emotion Focused Therapy for couples, and am pursuing certification. This therapy has 20 years of research supporting its effectiveness and has a 70-75 percent success rate for couples who have a variety of concerns, ranging from a loss of spark to infidelity to trauma.

I am a Texoma-raised counselor and my hometown is Sherman, TX. This means that I understand the unique needs of our community and am invested in making our community a happier and healthier place to live. I have also provided mental health services to people who were feeling like they were out of control, hopeless, sad, and didn’t know what to do next because they were just too overwhelmed.

I began my career by working for a local mental health community center that provided services to people who had some of the most severe diagnoses and disorders. Working at this center afforded me the unique opportunity to help people from many different walks of life, different cultural backgrounds, and who had many different struggles. My experience at the community center has also assisted me in fine-tuning my counseling skills so that I may assist people with issues or diagnoses that are often difficult to treat.

I am passionate about helping people who believe they have hit a roadblock in their life or in their relationship and are determined to regain a lifestyle that they enjoy. If this sounds like you, then please contact me. I offer free consultations.

I am currently accepting all forms of Medicaid, including Amerigroup, Cenpatico, Superior, Cigna Health-Spring, Traditional Medicaid, UnitedHealthcare/Optum, and Chip. I also accept many private insurances, including Optum/United Behavioral Health, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna Health Insurance, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas,Aetna and TriCare Standard.

“Brittainy is a skilled and innovative therapist with a comprehensive knowledge of the profession. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking psychological services in our area.”
