“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~Victor Frankl
I am a firm believer that you can take charge of your own life. It is the lack of awareness of our unconnscious motivations, feelings and wounds that sometimes keep taking us in the wrong direction. I am here to help you unpack, process and take charge of your emotional life so you can better determine the way you want to live your life. My hope for counseling is to guide you and be a part of your healing process. Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
I am compassionate, genuine, and humble. I want to ensure that my clients have a safe space to be open and comfortable expressing their thoughts. It’s important for me to create an environment where the client feels heard and can find the courage to grow. In my therapeutic approach I incorporate from different theories such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Based Practices, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment, Family Therapy, among others.
My passion for helping people has developed in several settings throughout my career as an Air Force Officer and in my personal life. I’ve had experience working with depression, anxiety, relationships, domestic violence and family dynamics. I work with helping clients with emotional regulation, cognitive awareness and healing so new choices can be made. I received my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice at Lubbock Christian University, and I am working on my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Abilene Christian University.
