It would be my honor to work with you and help you process the pain that brought you here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in a dual track master's program in counseling and marriage and family therapy. I am supervised by Jack D. Dickerson, LPC-S. I belong to the American Counseling Association (ACA), Christian Counselors of North Texas (CCT) and EMDRIA (a professional association for EMDR trained and certified counselors). I work with individuals, couples, teenagers, and families.
You may feel "crazy" because of things that have happened to you and because of the ways you react to people and situations now. You're not. You're hurt and carrying old hurtful habits that you needed at one time to protect yourself. I went through a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program in 2010 and co-led groups and coached in that ministry for 7 years. I found healing and hope through letting go of the shame and secrets that crippled me and finding my identity in Christ. Shame and secrets keep you isolated from yourself, the world, and God. I know what it's like to look good on the outside when you're struggling with hurts and fear on the inside. But God says, "Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19). You can step into new ways of relating to yourself, others, and God. It's hard, but worth it.
I take an eclectic approach to counseling, as no two people are the same and what speaks to one person might not work with another. Some respond to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), others to narrative therapy, others to sensorimotor therapy, and sometimes EMDR (Eye movement, Desensitization, Reprocessing) is the key for moving through trauma. If you have been abused by parents/caretakers or have experienced a trauma, you carry a heavy weight. Let me help you put that weight down. I offer a free thirty-minute consultation so that you can see if I am a good fit for you. You can reach me with the contact information below, or click "schedule appointment" and ask for me.
