Change can be scary. But it’s also a very important and necessary part of life, that can lead to our happiest and proudest moments. This could be one of those moments for you, as you make yourself a priority and start to take control of your life. So, congratulations!
We are all deserving and capable of creating a full, unique and happy life. However, life can throw things at us that may slow us down or even stop us completely from reaching that full potential. Anxiety, depression, trauma, life circumstances, bad relationships, fear… It can be easy to hand over the reins and let these things take control. When you give up that control, that’s where the “stuck” feeling comes from.
My goal as a therapist is to help you gain insight into the areas of your life that you’re playing small and not reaching your full potential. My motto is “Come as you are.” I know that life can be messy. We’ll work as a team to help you slowly unpack the mess and get to the root of the problem. I want you to feel free and comfortable to explore the areas in your life where you feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or just plain “stuck.” I help clients make positive changes by bringing awareness to unhealthy patterns and behaviors, recognizing triggers, processing trauma, and building coping skills.
Just as I ask that you come as you are, I will do the same. While the counseling relationship is a bit different from other relationships, I’m human just like you. Most of my clients find that I’m easy to relate to and very down-to-earth. I have experience working with a variety of populations and issues, including: anxiety, depression, self-harm, grief, trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, big life changes, children, adolescents and adults.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of North Texas. I received my Master of Arts in Counseling and Development from Texas Woman’s University. I’m Texas born and raised and grew up on a farm surrounded by lots of dogs, cats, horses, donkeys and pigs. I’m that person who has to stop to pet every dog I pass on the street. I have a deep love for 70’s rock and roll and spend my free time on trails, doing yoga, reading, watching Netflix, and eating as much Thai food as I can get
