Life does not come with an instruction manual. We often ask ourselves, “Where do I go from here,” and that’s okay! It can be challenging to navigate life's curveballs because we don't know how or we don't feel like we deserve to find healing. Each person’s journey towards healing is different, but everyone deserves a space where they can begin that journey.

My ideal client is one who is struggling through an issue and is serious about making significant improvements through hard work. I am aware that life events manifest in many, and often unexpected, ways; Sometimes, the manifestations are changes in personality, mood, relationships, employment, health, and/or the development of various dependencies. I enjoy helping people navigate the stormy seas of trauma, because once the dark skies have cleared, it is truly a joyous day!

As humans, we will inevitably go through many life changes, situations, and events. Sometimes, those changes can affect us in many different ways. You may experience moments of happiness, sadness, anger, or hopelessness. Some of these feelings, in turn, may impact how you view yourself as well as the world around you. Although you may be able to navigate through some of your emotions very well, there may be times when you feel as if you need more assistance. It is okay to not be okay. It's also okay to seek help. I truly enjoy working with individuals and helping them cultivate peace within themselves and in their life in general.

"I cheated, I had an affair." No one ever wants to be told these words, but your partner just said them to you. They were your anchor and they betrayed your trust. In your shock and disbelief, you searched for answers, but that only lead to the worst fights you have ever had. Since then, you have lived as roommates keeping to your own corners of the house. You are tired of the distance and want things to just go back to how they were. But deep down you tell yourself, "It can never be like it was. Not now."

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit my website; finding a therapist who is a good match for you is important. For this reason, I'd like to explain a bit about my approach and how I treat a variety of presenting issues. I approach therapy from a client-directed, strengths-based perspective. This means that I view your current situation with curiosity and compassion, from a non-judgmental position. I'll listen to your story and help you remove the barriers to change that exist in your situation. Whenever possible, I use empirically validated models of therapy such as EFT, EMDR, and IFS.

You face challenges each and every day. At times, these struggles get to a point when you can no longer handle or manage them. Some things in life are not meant to be faced by yourself, and that's where I come in. My passion is helping those who feel as though the weight of their struggles is too much and those who are in need of support in their life to make a change. Sometimes we all need a little help to get to where we would like to be.

Counseling is a crossroads experience. You have come to a place in your life where you have decided that the challenges of your life are more than you can bear on your own. You are inviting me to walk with you on that journey. In humility with patience, gentleness, and encouragement I strive to help you figure out more effective ways to live, new ways to handle your emotions and solve problems, and relationship changes that make life more satisfying personally, or in your marriage and/or family.

My own mental health and identity discovery brought me to this profession. Struggling with Anxiety and Depression most of my life, I had begun to believe in many of the lies my mind had created from unhealthy thought cycles. I felt like I was my worst enemy and there was nothing scarier than being trapped within my own mind. I found out, really, I was also my best ally – I just needed someone to disrupt my patterns of behavior long enough to learn more about myself in a healthy way. If you struggle with anxiety and/or depression I’ve been right there and I am willing to walk alongside you and help you get through it.

There is no one way- right or wrong- therapy for each situation or individual. I understand that what works for one person may not necessarily work for someone else. That is why I am open minded to try many of the tools in my toolbox to find the one that most benefits the client. I pride myself on being not only open minded, but also empathetic and caring. I make the client my top priority and genuinely love getting to know each one.

You may be struggling with anxiety, relationships, self esteem issues, feeling stressed or overwhelmed. My clients come to therapy because they are experiencing some or all of these challenges and are looking to feel better. Therapy can bring a different perspective to the difficulties you are experiencing and can provide you with the direction and confidence to achieve your goals, live in accordance to your values, and feel better. You are not alone and you don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. I would like to help.

We all want to feel whole; healthy in our minds and bodies, connected to ourselves and others, and brimming with the energy to take on life's burdens while preserving contentment, finding joy, and pursuing love. But life comes with many obstacles to our sense of wholeness. Sometimes it is a label that describes a painful experience, such as depression, anxiety, grief, or relational conflict. Other times it is simply the stress that comes with a life transition. Beyond learning to cope, therapy helps you achieve lasting healing and growth that can propel you into the best available future for you and those you love.

Like a sail boat on the ocean, we are all on a journey where each one of us will encounter a mixture of calm seas, clear skies, storms and rainy days. We cannot control the weather, but we can join together to get through the storm until the sun shines again. I believe every individual has a unique story and a unique journey, and I have a desire to join with these individuals in helping them in their steps to achieve their unique goals towards healing, peace, and growth. We are all on that ocean, and riding out the storm is achievable with the right tools, encouragement, and support.

Addiction is one of the toughest things someone can face. It can be overwhelming, life consuming, and lead to lifelong consequences if left untreated. Have you tried to stop on your own with "traditional" or "one size fits all" treatments? Are you ready to break the cycle of making progress and then regressing without understanding what went wrong? I have good news. Recovery IS possible and you do not have to do it alone. Recovery is different for everyone. I offer the opportunity to partner with me to individualized your treatment based on your goals in a supporting, inclusive, and non-judgemental environment.

What type of Abilene mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Abilene?

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
