Brylee Bolton grew up on a cattle ranch in west Texas, moved to College Station to study at Texas A&M University where she got her bachelor’s degree in Communication and minor in Psychology and has since migrated to Dallas. As one of five siblings, Brylee grew up with a love for people and an interest in how relationships develop, grow, suffer challenges, and thrive. Through working at T Bar M Camps and with an inner-city non-profit in Dallas, Brylee decided to pursue a lifelong journey of walking with people through the valleys and mountaintops of life. Brylee earned her master’s in counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary and now provides counseling for individuals, couples, and families from an attachment-based approach.
Relationships are the bedrock of our lives, where we develop, can be hurt, and can be healed. Brylee walks with clients on their own unique journey to improve their current friendships, dating relationships, and marriages, deal with loneliness and isolation and help clients find in greater measure the wholeness and satisfaction that life can offer. Brylee is also passionate about working through issues of spirituality and doubt with clients who are struggling with faith or religion.
Brylee has had the privilege of working with families in West Dallas at The Center for Integrative Counseling and Psychology and working with individual clients through the Life Development Program at Innovation 360. Through these experiences, she has had the honor of meeting families and individuals in difficult moments of their lives, providing support, and seeing their resilience and growth in the midst of it all.
Brylee loves spending time with friends, riding her bike around the lake, painting, reading poetry, and enjoying great music.
One of her favorite poems is “Wild Geese” by Mary Oliver:
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile, the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
