BinaBina Bird, MA, LMFT-S, PMH-C


One of my biggest strengths is that I am open-minded and non-judgmental.  My philosophy is that you come as you are so that you can be as comfortable as possible. There is nothing you could tell me that would shock me, so there is never a need to feel shy or embarrassed.  I collaborate with my clients to discover strengths and establish meaningful goals. I will join you where you are and when you're ready I'll challenge you to move forward.  I provide a supportive environment and am an active participant in the therapy process. I can help you move beyond past hurts and trauma, feel like yourself again, find peace and balance, and have happier, healthier relationships. 

With over 15 years of experience I see a wide range of clients but my specialties are women and preteen/teen girls. I am one of the few in the state of Texas who are Certified In Perinatal Mental Health.  I have also been trained in Gottman Levels 1 and 2 (couples therapy) and EMDR (Trauma Therapy) which allows me to provide evidenced-based information and tools to those struggling with relationships, and help those process and heal past and recent trauma.

fIn addition to seeing clients, I also provide clinical supervision to LMFT Associates, Training and Education on Perinatal Mental Health both locally and nationally, and Professional Consultation to other clinicians.  I am a Postpartum Support Volunteer Coordinator and serve on the Texas PSI Board as Director of Education and Training.

On a personal note, I enjoy travel, reading, and spending time with my husband and 3 children.
