About Sally Evans

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have practiced psychotherapy for twenty years, focusing on anxiety management, relieving depression and women's transitions.  I hold a post-graduate certification as a Professional Coach through the College of Executive Coaching and I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

My experience includes founding a private practice with three other therapists in Amarillo, Texas. This counseling center is still thriving. I have also held positions as Director of Counseling Services at West Texas A&M University and Amarillo College.  In my practice, I offer counseling, life coaching and hypnotherapy.

For me, the counseling process is sort of this magical mix of : telling your story without fear of judgment, learning to evaluate your thinking patterns and change them, getting creative, setting goals,  learning about yourself as you go.  Here's what I do:

Help With Anxiety 

Even though I am experienced in a variety of issues, my specialty area in counseling is anxiety management.

My older sister tells me that I came out of the womb anxious and afraid of everything. And she's right! I know what it's like to struggle with this. For many years, I have been on a personal mission to learn to minimize stress. There are some very helpful principals and practices that I can show you to relax and have more peace in your life. I would love to help you along that path. 


Another focus area of mine is life transitions. As women, we continually have the opportunity to re-invent ourselves when we are faced with major life changes:  college graduation, career choice, marriage, pregnancy, children, losses such as divorce or the death of a parent, parenting through each phase of child development, empty nest when children leave, and retirement…..and more.  Each transition includes dealing with loss and learning more about who we want to become.

Depression Relief

Even though depression has some common symptoms, I have seen that it varies with each individual. It is complicated, and it tends to remove the very thing you need most to get better: energy and motivation. I use a lot of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and other strategies to help you get better.

Get Happy!

My specialty area in life coaching is Happiness Coaching. The last decade of research on the Science of Happiness has produced some very interesting and useful information on how we can become happy! That’s something everyone wants, right?  I have read a lot of books, listened to the researchers talk, and recently completed a college course from University of California, Berkeley on this topic.  I’m excited to share these principles with people who are willing to do a bit of work with me in order to facilitate happiness in your life.
