About Me

Hello,
I am a Christian counselor who have been a Christian for 40 years. I have been walking alongside individuals for 16+ years as they navigate areas in their life that create trouble and trauma for their souls (minds, emotions and will).

I am committed to helping Christians (pastors, leaders, their families and all believers’) across the U.S. and beyond, to grow in personal wholeness and healthy relationships. My practice will offer you a place of rest and peace, a safe place, a place of healing and wholeness.

I am equipped to help those seeking to find clarity in their life and correct their faulty thinking; to give support to the brokenhearted and those broken in spirit.
I also counsel married couples with communication challenges and infidelity struggles and offer spiritual direction to those grappling with issues of faith. I currently have a private practice and I also teach a class via Zoom on Emotional and Spiritual Maturity.

I earned an M.Div. in Theology from Austin Presbyterian Theology Seminary and a M.S in Counseling Psychology from Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Prior to earning these degrees, I earned a Christian counseling degree and have since trained others to be Christian counselors.

As we move forward I will be asking you what will feel like A LOT of questions at first. At times it may seem impersonal and tedious. Please bear with me through this brief intake process. It won’t take long and the information you provide will be used to help you moving forward.

To start, I need to ask for some contact information, just to have on file in case of an emergency. I don’t have access to anything you shared when you registered, and I have an ethical and legal responsibility to know how to reach you in case of emergency. I want to assure you that everything is completely confidential, except in the situations explained in the informed consent you have agreed to above. Your emergency contact person will only be contacted in the event that I am concerned for your well-being and am unable to reach you by any other means.

Now let’s take a break from information gathering and talk about the online platform in general:

Through this online platform you have access to messaging 24/7. Please note, that while you can message me whenever you want, I typically respond to messages within 24 hours during “normal” waking hours. If you have a matter that is urgent, please mark your message as such so that I can address the matter with you as soon as possible.
You also have the option to schedule a live session via phone call, video, or chat. To schedule a live session, go to the Schedule section. Your 45 minute live session is scheduled on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 8am to 5pm or Saturdays from 10 am to 2pm. Please note: I do not schedule sessions on Sunday. If you do not see a day/time that works for you, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you. Typically, clients will schedule a live session once a week or bi-weekly depending on their needs. However, live chat, messaging and live phone sessions are also available. The choice is yours!

Prior to scheduling your first session, please review my no-show/cancellation policy below (also outlined in the informed consent).
No-Show/Cancellation Policy
24-hour notice is required for live session cancellations. If/when you need to cancel, please provide a brief explanation. After 3 no-shows/late cancellations, I reserve the right to delay live sessions and move to strictly messaging until an agreement can be reached between us regarding live sessions.
I understand that life happens, emergencies happen. Please let me know what is happening so that I can support you as best as I can. Please understand this policy is not punitive, but meant to encourage respect of my time as well as your own time. If I need to cancel or reschedule for any reason I will be as transparent as I can with you about why. I also try to reschedule/cancel within 24 hours of anything coming up. If I do cancel last minute, it will be accompanied by the opportunity to reschedule that same week. If you have any questions/concerns regarding this policy please allow me to address these with you.
Should you ever feel in need of urgent help, at risk of harming yourself or someone else, or that you are in crisis at any time during our work together, please call 1-800-273-TALK 24-hours a day or call 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so I want to be sure you know where to reach out if you ever need immediate help.

Please know that you are not alone. I’m looking forward to working with you. Once I’ve received your contact information we will continue our brief intake process. Should you have any questions along the way, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Beryl

She’s wonderful and caring. Very insightful.

Written by S.A. on Sep 15, 2021 after therapy with Beryl for 9 months

The best thing about Beryl is that you know she is in your corner 100% of the time. She is there for your struggle and your victory. If you have a bad day, she knows when to be gentle and when to challenge you. Truly, even on days when I wanted to hear one thing, it turns out what she told me was much closer to the truth. I am so grateful for her honesty and her continued support of me. She has aided in my spiritual growth by remaining solid in her beliefs. She has provided a great sense of relief and freedom for me in working through thoughts and feelings. Beryl has shown me that my struggles do not take away from what I believe in or vice versa. There is so much healing and growth out there to be had, and Beryl helps you work for it!

Mrs.Beryl is truly a God send and I'm so grateful to have her as my counselor. What she does at the level in which she does it, all I can say is God has definitely anointed and equipped her to do this and I'm glad He connected us.

She is amazing. Everything I need at this point in my life. She asks the right questions and helps me tackle thought distortions. She reinforces the scripture and what God says. She is a blessing and I don’t want to ever stop seeing her!
