Peyton Vickers

LPC (MS-2764)

Peyton is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. For the past two years she has been a clinical assistant at Three Oaks Behavioral Health in Ridgeland, Mississippi working with adults and adolescents at the partial hospitalization level of care dealing with a variety of issues including substance abuse and mood disorders. She is now a Licensed Professional Counselor working in private practice. 

Peyton weaves together a Biblical worldview,  clinical experience, and a rigorous study of psychology to form an integrative approach to the counseling relationship. Her love of relationships and neurobiology create an environment that is at the same time approachable and scientific. She loves psychoeducation and is always excited to share research and tools with clients that will help improve their wellbeing and feed their curiosity about the world of mental health.

She enjoys coming alongside others and providing a safe and consistent space for individuals to unpack their experiences. She believes that counseling can help heal and reframe the critical and harmful beliefs that contribute to shame and maladaptive behaviors. These beliefs can come from a variety of experiences: childhood messages from family or peers, trauma histories, social media, culture, etc. The counseling relationship provides a place to work through some of these core beliefs so that you can relate to yourself and others in a more fulfilling way.

Peyton’s passion for marriage and family therapy is rooted in a Biblical understanding of God’s design for family and the blessings that can come from healthy family relationships. She seeks to provide families with a place to sort through unspoken issues, develop tools to communicate more effectively, and ultimately foster rich and meaningful familial relationships. She has a particular passion for working with adolescents and their parents, with a focus on improving the mental health of the adolescent and improving the relationship between child and parent.

Depression and Anxiety.

Peyton’s approach to depression/anxiety work is rooted in her clinical experience and studies of Internal Family Systems (IFS), CBT, DBT, and neuropsychology. She also has great appreciation for the benefits of psychopharmacology and the aid that medication can provide when dealing with these issues.

Adjustment/Life Transitions

Peyton’s approach to adjustment and life transition comes from a client-centered and strengths-based perspective. Peyton strongly believes that within each person are the resources they need to thrive. Sometimes they may just need a little help accessing them. She aims to provide the space a person needs to sort through life adjustments, choices, and identity issues by functioning as a mirror to help others see themselves more clearly.

Family Therapy

Operating from a Family Systems perspective, Peyton enjoys looking at the unique roles, rules, and habits that operate within each family system. She believes that identifying these patterns can help create freedom as individuals determine which patterns they would like to see change within their family unit.

Marriage and Premarital Counseling

Peyton is trained in Gottman Level I and II, and is also a Prepare/Enrich certified premarital facilitator. She also incorporates Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and Atkinson principles into her work with couples. These modalities guide her focus on helping individuals find the understandable parts of their partners and developing habits for a successful relationship.

Trauma

Peyton’s work with trauma is largely informed by her studies of Diane Langberg’s slow and patient style of developing grounding and coping skills for stabilization before unpacking trauma memories.

Meaning of Life and Spirituality

Peyton will always be operating out of a Biblical perspective, however is happy to work with individuals with a variety of spiritual beliefs. She believes that spirituality is a core facet of what makes us human, and therefore important to explore and develop. She loves providing a space to ponder life’s biggest questions.
