Dr. Brene Brown says "Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen". My hope for you is that counseling will be a safe place to show up and be seen without judgement, and I hope that this will be a moment of courage for you to reach out and begin your journey. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I received my Masters degree in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University in 2006. I strive to offer a warm, down-to-earth environment where clients feel safe being authentic and vulnerable about their struggles. I am a member of the Texas Counseling Association and EMDRIA and specialize in working with adolescents, individuals, and couples. I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Christian counseling as requested. I am LGBTQI affirming and am familiar with working with the military and medical community, also. I meet with clients Tuesdays-Fridays, have Saturday availability for established clients, and accept most insurances. I prefer jeans and converse. I love my family and am surrounded by lots of testosterone with four male animals, a musician husband, and a pre-teen, baseball-playing son. To compensate for this, I also makes time to enjoy estrogen-filled TV (ie: 90 Day Fiance), visiting my baby niece in DFW, and brunch with girlfriends.
