Sometimes we just need guidance during transitions in our lives, whether it be relationship issues, parenting or family changes. Are you going through a separation/divorce, or going through a personal crisis? Do you feel overwhelmed and need help finding your way?
Accepting Clients now. Over 20 years of experience working with children and families in education and ministry. My counseling philosophy is rooted in the belief that when someone feels safe, seen, and soothed, they are secure enough to share the deepest and most meaningful stories in their life journey. My therapeutic goal is for every child, teen, parent, and adult I meet to know they have been seen, at the very core of their being. By core, I mean the part of us that makes us who we are in heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit.
You, or your child are Loveable, Valuable, and One-of-a-kind! Life experiences, family patterns, past traumas, losses and social media feed our minds and souls with damaging lies that wound our hearts and self worth. No matter what your past or present circumstances, there is hope for a new path towards improved mental, physical, and spiritual health. All are valuable, for each of us were born with a purpose, and unique gifts. You, or your child deserve to be heard, valued and directed toward wholeness. I have over 25 years experience in helping families and children. I would be honored to be your compass towards wholeness!
I understand that life brings unexpected transitions. During these transitions people sometimes need someone to help facilitate change, someone to listen without judgment, or voice their thoughts in order to gain a fresh perspective. The goal in counseling is to help those in crisis, navigate through grief, anger, confusion, and those who feel out of control gain control. I have worked in several inpatient hospitals and private practice for six years and that has allowed me to counsel military families, clients with suicidal thoughts or attempts, addicts, and those who struggle with psychosis.
Hi there, I've always been a firm believer in “thinking outside the box”, which is why I offer a variety of treatment methods and professional consulting services to assist you with your needs. Clients located in TX have the option of meeting in person, virtually, or in the arena with the horses. For VA & NC clients, sessions are 100% virtual. Supervision for professionals who would like to become licensed in VA & NC is also available virtually. And I now offer career assessments using the Greenwood System 120, a holistic program for those just entering the workforce or those who are in transition to a new career field.
I work well with individuals who are seeking change. Post-traumatic stress and anxiety can be debilitating. I offer trauma-informed therapy for individuals who desire post-traumatic growth. I will help re-develop a sense of hope through processing fears and diminishing the severity of the fight or flight response. Resilience can be strengthened by empowering the survivor with healthy self-management skills and improving self-worth. I am empathetic and goal-oriented.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, addictive patterns, eating disorder treatment including Binge Eating Disorder, Obesity, and personality disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder. If you find yourself stuck in the same self defeating patterns or constantly overreact in anger, I can help. Poor sleep, drinking too much, raging, binge eating/excessive dieting, or over medicating can dull emotional pain but there are more effective ways to cope and reduce stress and find a life that offers more happiness, peace, contentment and healthier relationships.
My clients are incredible women who haven't felt like themselves lately, as life changes have derailed them and left them with increased anxiety. If it's been hard to connect authentically with those around you and you want to be able to make decisions, engage with others, and handle recent changes with more confidence and peace, then please reach out.
I specialize in ADHD and Tourette Syndrome, and also have experience with anxiety, depression, parenting, infertility, grief, and social skills. The pressures of life can be overwhelming and can lead to unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I help individuals set reasonable expectations and develop specific strategies to attain their personal goals. I also provide guidance and assistance to help families learn how to collaborate and work effectively with schools when seeking special education services. I have been married for 19 years and experienced the challenges and blessings of two teenage sons with special needs.

Have you ever wondered if this is as good as it gets? Do you feel overwhelmed, confused and bordering on hopeless about life or about your relationship with your person? Have you wondered if what you are experiencing is something other people experience as well? Do you feel alone, disconnected and invisible? Do you have emotional wounds that don't seem to heal? What would it feel like to make your mental health a priority? How would your life change if you were to choose you? What would it mean to be seen, heard, understood and supported?

Licensed Professional Counselor, MEd, LPC, LCDC, NCC
Life is full of surprises and often we are caught off guard. "I am not sure what else I can do", "Am I doing the right thing"," I just can't seem to get over my problem", "I wish I had someone to help me with my racing thoughts", " I want to be social but I am scared and need help". Does any of these statements resonate with you? Even successful people can have unresolved struggles. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and disturbing life experiences can block our happiness. I help my clients move beyond their stumbling blocks.
