I operate a private counseling practice, working mostly with married couples and trauma survivors. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist (CCTS-I), and I use specific methods in narrative therapy in my work with trauma survivors. When I work with married couples, I utilize four basic components of growth toward safety and health in the relationship: celebration of personality differences, baggage brought into marriage (from past painful events), resentment built between partners, and personal goals and priorities that can be merged together in marriage.
I also love working with men and women who are vocational ministers. I’ve learned that pastors, ministers and those who work in para-church organizations are subject to all kinds of struggle (and even trauma) as a result of their ministries. We need safe spaces in which to heal and struggle through life’s suffering.
I am able to offer virtual counseling to anyone within the state of Texas. While some may think virtual counseling is strange, others find it very convenient. I work hard to ensure that technology is not a hindrance to the counseling process, and I use a HIPAA-compliant software to ensure confidentiality.
My practice usually remains full, but I do keep a waitlist on file. If you’d like to be placed on a waitlist for counseling, please click HERE to make a request.
