I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas with over 4 years’ experience working in the mental health field as a counselor, mentor, motivator, coach, and facilitator. I am also a Licensed Minister through CCI in Killeen, TX since 2015. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, including marriage and family, conflict resolutions, life transitions, substance abuse and addictions, Christianity, complicated grief, PTSD, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, ADHD, and many more. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I understand the unique challenges and circumstances of maneuvering through life's issues as a Christian. I understand the importance prayer, faith, hope, salvation, and an overall sound belief system.
My counseling style is warm, empathetic, interactive, and integrative. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is always dictated by the specific needs of each client. I utilize techniques from narrative therapy to externalize negative storylines and emotions that dominate one’s life; while also incorporating CBT, DBT, SFBT, and strategic counseling to challenge negative thinking patterns, identify emotion regulation, and encourage change through each individual’s possessed strengths through forward focus, and dismantling dysfunctional behaviors. I celebrate diversity and honor the uniqueness of each individual and thus provide a safe space to express the genuine needs of the client. I stand firmly in my faith and my beliefs, and believe that what I do is not a job, but my calling and life's purpose. But as with anyone saved or saved that I encounter, I believe that respect, love, mercy, and genuine care for people is imperative.
So if you are a couple, family, or individual who wants to be empowered; who wants hope, and wants to be strengthened in your Christian faith as you maneuver life's issues, in a non-judgmental space, then I would be honored to collaborate with you on achieving your specific goals. I know from experience life happens to us all, and that it is grace that makes the all the difference.
I look forward to the alongside work with you on this Christian journey through life!!!
