MA, CMHC, LPC, Owner
I am passionate about working with individuals and families who have experienced trauma. I believe each person has a unique story to tell and regardless of how difficult things are; they can have hope for a better present and future.
Education and Training...
I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Psychology, Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Trauma Counseling from Regent University. My studies provided me an opportunity to learn how to integrate faith with best practices in the counseling field. I attended over 100 hours of trauma training through various agencies and the VAT online program. I am a certified EMDR therapist, Consultant-in-training, which has been proven effective for people of all ages and experiences.
My professional experience has been working with individuals of all ages as well as facilitating classes.
My personal experience with trauma has allowed me to have compassion and understanding for deep hurt. However, I also know that everyone has a different experience. That is why I use an individualized approach with my clients.
Welcome to Redeeming Lives Counseling! I am excited that you have made this decision to seek positive life change for yourself and your loved ones! In a world with so many challenges, distractions, and voices, we all need help and a safe environment to process and grow. I pray that Redeeming Lives Counseling is that places for you!
My background is working in the field of addiction and mental health disorders. We are not bad people. We all get sick at times and need help. With 16 years of providing services in both Kansas and Oklahoma, I have experience in meeting and treating a variety of mental health and substance use disorders. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in March of 2019 and became a Licensed Alcohol and Drug/Mental Health Counselor in the State of Oklahoma in May of 2019. I have followed God’s will for my life and fully believe Redeeming Lives is where He has led me to be!
My passion in helping others stems from my own personal experiences with addiction, traumas, and mental health. I fully believe that with the help of God and people, as well as some action on my part, that spiritual and emotional relief and growth have occurred. These can be considered miracles! I am excited to partner with you to help you achieve your own miracles in you and your families lives. This is what God is in the business of doing. At Redeeming Lives, our hearts desire is to partner with Him so that His glory can be shown through you!
My personal life consists of spending time with my beautiful wife of 14 years, Lori, and our loving 11 year-old son Noah. I love God, my family, and hanging out watching sports and movies. Life Church Moore is our home church. It’s been a blessing to serve, make friends, and be spiritually fed there!

Hi. My name is Guyla Tibbs.
The Lord Called me into the coaching field long before it was cool. I have been helping people of all walks of life from all different types of backgrounds, economic levels, lifestyles, and cultures.
Something I have noticed over the years is that people do not know their true identity, they don’t know their strengths, and they operate from a trauma lens rather than who they truly are and who they are meant to be.
I am passionate about seeing people healed. I help individuals, couples, and families, reach their goals, purpose, learn their true identity, set healthy boundaries, recover from traumatic situations, transform into new careers, help find meaningful relationships, and so much more. I also have presentations over different topics to help communities and organizations learn and grow.
While I have a B.A. in Organizational Leadership, I’m an ordained minister, with years of experience ministering in the church, I have just as much training and experience working as a mentor and life coach.
I started mentoring about 30 years ago as the Lord placed women and families in my life to disciple. I love people. I saw hurting people and I wanted them to experience the freedom I had. The Lord continued to bring people into my life, and I continued to lean on Him, to hear what it was that He had for them. I often operate in my prophetic gifting and get to witness people healed from their past traumas, hang-ups, trials, and just growing up and maturing. It is such a blessing to be a part of this walk with people. Something people get hung up on is needing to trust in God more. That is not my message. See, The Bible does say we cannot do anything apart from Him (John 15:5). However, He gives us tools to work through things. Just like some of us need medication for different ailments and medical conditions, we need tools for mental health that partner with faith. He gives wisdom on how to overcome something. How many stories in the Bible does Jesus say, “go wash” or go do this”? Yes, Jesus can just heal someone but most of the time He says, “do this…and you will be healed”.
I would love an opportunity to walk beside you and help you find what “this” is for you. I promise to meet you where you are at and together come up with a road map to achieve your goals.

Education and Training...
I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Web Development. However, Psychology has been a recent past interest of mine, which is why I took several courses in child development, family dynamics, and general psychology Courses.
My hope and career goals are to move into web development and marketing and possibly developing a freelance company.
My goal as an office manager is to help the office run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. I hope to make sure that clients are treated with kindness and respect throughout their mental health journey. I also hope to support our providers so that they can do what they do best, focus on their client's needs.
I enjoy learning new things, hanging out with friends, and relaxing at home with my dogs. I am passionate about working to ensure the success of my future.
I completed my Bachelor of Psychology with a minor in Biology in the Spring of 2015 at East Central University and immediately began the Master of Science in Psychological Services in the Fall of 2015, completing the program in the Spring of 2017.
I have been practicing mental health therapy since 2017 and have been fully licensed by the Oklahoma Board of Behavioral Health since 2019. I have completed board certification to supervise Licensed Professional Counselor Candidates as of October 2022. Other certifications regarding therapy techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Hypnosis, Client Centered Therapy, and training in EMDR.
My personal approach to mental health therapy is to offer clients the opportunity to enhance their lives through self-empowerment. I have found people have a much better experience with mental health success through this approach. I have experience with treating trauma, anxiety, depression, attention deficit, eating, and autism spectrum disorders. I have worked with adults, children, couples, as well as family conflict situations.
The key component I find most effective in establishing therapist/client rapport is to allow the client to feel free to speak in a way that does not limit their thought process. I believe free flowing speech is relevant to developing optimal mental health.
Through my experiences, I have found that therapy is most effective when applied from an individualistic standpoint as not all approaches are conducive to each person's needs. I always do my best to provide an environment in which individuals can find the most appropriate way to overcome psychological disorders. My personal philosophy is to give the best possible counseling experience in a way that pertains directly to individual needs regarding mental health therapy.
