Hi there, my name is Talena Odell and I am an LPC with a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am licensed in the state of Oklahoma and have many years of experience working with children, teens, adults, and families who are impacted by depression, anxiety, foster care, adoption, parenting issues, grief, trauma, and loss. I have many years of experience with the Child Welfare System and have three adopted children of my own. I have experience with children with special needs. I am very down-to-earth and nonjudgmental. My families tell me that they feel comfortable sharing their challengs and we work together towards goals to experiencesl successes one day at a time.
So, how can I help? Maybe life has not been what you expected and you feel a little bit beat up. Maybe it is time to find that help you have been looking for even if it is just having that someone that truly does understand what it feels like. I believe in a Holistic/ Integrative approach to healing, which includes mental, physical and spiritual healing. So let's start now to work toward living a better life and find improved emotional health, increased satisfaction in your daily life, and a healthier family life. Let's live a life more abundantly.

LPC #7303 (Expires: 2021-10-01)
She’s kind, truthful, and generally a wise individual that passes her great wisdom to me : )
Talena immediately recognized what I was struggling with and helped me to put it into perspective. I felt as if a weight was lifted and since then, our sessions have been very eye opening and I am starting to see, with her help, through the fog I've been living under all of these years.
shes so great:)
So far I’m very pleased!
I’ve really enjoyed Talena’s council. She is professional, experienced, sensitive to the situation and provides honest but compassionate advice! I highly recommend her!
Talena has shown me things that I haven't known about myself. She guides me to the correct answer rather than just give it to me. In this way, not only do I arrive at the answer that I need, but also answers to other questions that I didn't know I had. Yes, she challenges me, but at the end of the session, she always gets me to a better place.
She is a great listener and asks really probing questions. She fits me in as often as I need.
Talena is a professional full of empathy and common sense. From my personal experience and current situation, this combination is what had helped me teen counseling my self esteem and confidence. Having a professional of her caliber working on my side gives me hope in achieving the inner peace that was somehow missing in my life after a painful divorce. She is diligent, caring and have an incredible sense of humor. I recommend her for anyone suffering from the aftermath of emotional trauma.
Talena is so patient and kind. She asks the questions I haven't asked myself before and it has been so helpful so far. Talena has a lot of empathy and it has been easy to open up to her during my sessions.
Talena has been the support I’ve needed to make it through I very difficult time. She is kind and respectful. I have gone to a few counselors before and I feel like she is exceptional and goes beyond the call of duty.
She is a great listener and gives wonderful, practical advice rooted in God's word.
