Founded in 2017, Lift Professional Counseling is owned and operated by Dustin Choate, and Jackie Townsley.  Dustin had a vision to start a counseling practice that would raise treatment standards, and meet client needs in novel fashion.  Furthermore, Dustin wanted to build a practice that promoted wellness, and helped people with daily struggles, as well as mental illness.

Dustin is a Licensed Professional Counselor (OK 6036), and worked previously in residential rehab, outpatient community mental health, and a DHS contracted group home.  He worked with individuals ranging from 6 years old to seniors, and has provided couples and family counseling.  Dustin does not subscribe to singular counseling philosophy, and believes a one size fits all solution is not adequate.
