Professional statement

Delaney Menell is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist located in West Lake Hills, TX. Her speciality is supporting clients through major life transitions, including breaking out of toxic relationships or relationship patterns, coming out to friends or family members, finding fulfillment in high-stress careers, putting perfectionism behind, or growing self-love. Delaney also works closely with those who either went through or are about to go through the adoption process, helping adults feel comfortable in their various identities.

With all of the identity-based work that Delaney does with her clients in session, she emphasizes the strengths that each person has and how those strengths play out in daily life. She also helps clients recognize if they’ve been through any trauma and develops healthy coping skills to make sure they don’t feel stuck. When there are past adverse experiences involved, Delaney brings her training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into the conversation to support the client through breaking out of negative self-talk and growing self-acceptance.

Delaney’s approach is direct, collaborative, and informative, giving clients not only deeper insight into themselves but also teaching skills to regulate emotions, set boundaries with the self and others, and bring joy into all aspects of life.


Message to clients

While my methods are grounded in evidence-based practices, my style is unique, down-to-earth and non-traditional. I'm also realistic, charismatic and compassionate. I apply humor when necessary and take great pride in challenging you to rise to your own occasion. Being able to step back and take an observational view of your life and consider a different perspective is integrated into my practice and a large part of what excites me about this work. I'll collaborate with you to get where you want to be in a way that makes the most sense to you.

I want to help you realign your head and heart in order to trust your intuition. Doing this allows you to live your life from a strength-based deep understanding of yourself, propelling you toward achieving self-actualization! You already have the characteristics, tools, and passion you need for everything you want, we may just need to make a few adjustments to rejuvenate those qualities or go even deeper to heal pain from past trauma.

Wether you're here to heal primarily or using our time to catapult you to your greatest heights, I'm looking forward to taking that journey with you.
