Helping others through their personal journey of self discovery and life challenge is my life's work. I believe that the true helping relationship is a partnership between myself and the client. In this partnership there needs to be mutual commitment, a willingness to be challenged, mutual respect, openness and a desire for health and wellness. The helping and healing process is just that, a process. To address the growing need for empathic, culturally sensitive and holistic therapy, I opened Inspire Professional Counseling group practice which allow the provision of services to a wider range of clients in need.

My passion is to empower those that have not found their potential. We all have our own stories and experiences which makes us perfect candidates for success when we have the right support. Whether you have lived it, experienced it or witnessed it, the effects of trauma are devastating. Quit beating yourself up. It is time to heal. With 20 years experience in addiction and over 10 working with trauma, it is time to recover from the past, survive the present, and flourish into the future. It all starts with you.

“You were never created to live depressed, defeated, guilty, condemned, ashamed or unworthy. You were created to be victorious.” Joel Osteen When you think about it, we are all recovering from something ...be it a broken relationship, death of a parent, spouse, child or friend; loss of a job or income; betrayal, ridicule, addiction to substances whether alcohol, drugs or food the list goes on. These unresolved traumas leave us vulnerable, frightened, and performing at less than our best abilities. It is important to be understood, to connect with someone who believes in your innate ability to heal, grow and get better.

I specialize in the psychology of men. I treat men experiencing sadness, control issues, stress, worry, and anger management. During my postdoctoral fellowship, I treated active military diagnosed with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and PTSD by conducting both individual and group therapy. Working with active military, I learned how to gain the individual's trust and confidence to let me into their lives, providing a nonjudgmental space to process life's events. My research has concentrated on men's issues. My doctoral dissertation focused on professional boxers and how they adjusted to retirement once the fame and fortune was gone.

I also believe it's not what happens to people that's most important, but what they do about it. Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become. Though daunting, this realization can be extremely EMPOWERING--You are in charge of your life and your future happiness! With this knowledge, change can unfold.

I love to see others be over-comers and feel privileged when I can be a part of that process. I recognize that one of God´s specialties is to "make a way" in the desert. Sometimes the desert is the parent-child relationship, a trauma in the life of the adult or the child, depression and anxiety, a learning or developmental difference, difficulty crossing cultures, etc. Sometimes our own difficulties with self esteem, boundaries, or trauma make day-to-day responsibilities difficult. The kids I worked with in Mexico for many years taught me a lot about overcoming trauma, regulating their emotions, etc. (They also taught me Spanish!)

Addiction is not a problem to be fixed, but rather a person. I have worked with many people with various addictions and realize that addressing one problem from one perspective is not enough. I specialize in getting to know a person first and then helping that person heal from past hurts, learn skills for problem-solving, improve communication, build strong relationships, practice ways to manage strong emotions, learn to slow down and change their harmful or intrusive thoughts, draw from their faith for strength, develop strong support systems, and with all this, hope of long-term recovery can become reality.

Depression, anxiety, and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) can be debilitating and keep us from experiencing healthy and fulfilling relationships.
