It can happen to anyone. Life is going along just fine, and then before you realize what happened, you find yourself in a tough situation you never expected. Coping with it has been far from easy, to say the least. You're not alone! If it's a traumatic event, if it's ongoing circumstances that impact your mood and overall functioning, perhaps I can help. I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, as well as Solutions-Focused Therapy. I use a holistic approach; considering the whole person in their environment.
I believe people have the capacity to change if provided a safe environment in which to recognize and overcome obstacles or barriers to personal happiness. I am passionate about seeing people experience freedom and seeing marriages healed, and I believe God is the ultimate healer.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I have been in private practice for 6 years but I have a total of 15 years of counseling experience. During that 15 years, I have worked with several people from all walks of life with a wide range of struggles such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, etc. and it's always gratifying when they find relief and their symptoms begin to improve and, for many, disappear altogether.

I am comfortable and knowledgeable working with clients who are at all ages and stages of life. I look forward to helping you navigate the twists and turns on the road of life!

**I am in Lubbock but am not accepting new clients** Are you looking to discover solutions and to make changes in your life to feel better? There are times when life becomes difficult and I believe that asking for help is a sign of strength and bravery. It takes a lot of courage to change your life. Therapy is a collaborative process where you should feel safe to express, explore, and challenge your perceptions and experiences. I approach each client with empathy and genuineness. Feeling safe and trustful of the therapy relationship is important for you to explore emotions and thoughts that may have never been shared before this.

My specialty is a client who has trauma, and they've have never had the help they need for it. They have depression and anxiety and want to lessen them and cannot remember key childhood memories. They may have sought counseling for, but they are still being triggered in their life, and still have not got the relief they so desire. They may have also struggled with substance or other abuse, and they may have given up, or are still seeking relief. The tenets of trauma are multifaceted and the person is impacted emotionally, physically, and mentally, and want to find out how to deal with their past/present to be happier and whole.
I would love to provide a safe space for those who are searching for somewhere to heal, share, hurt, feel, grow, learn, or overcome.

I believe that as a therapist I am privileged to sit with clients during their dark moments and difficulties as well as their wins. I never want those who come to me for safety to worry that there will be judgement or shame. Taking care of yourself and your relationships should be a safe space.
