I believe each one of us has a unique story that takes place in a broken world. In this setting, we all develop an inner voice that narrates our lives. We grow and experience hardships that may warp our personal narrator into an ongoing negative voice. Personal coping mechanisms develop that create emotional, cognitive, and behavioral patterns. While not all these character traits are harmful, some of them keep us from truly engaging in our lives and enjoying the present moment. They affect how we relate to others and experience true intimacy.
Healing the inner narrator and working on oneself is a life long process. My goal is to provide the tools you need to help you enjoy your story long after you and I part ways. I personally believe that complete healing comes from God who is the ultimate Healer, but I respect each person’s desire for how much or how little spiritual influence they would like in their counseling sessions. I am here to find the best method that will help you as an individual.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in English Literature from the University of North Texas, a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary, and am currently finishing up a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. I am on my third of four practicums in the counseling program and have worked with Star of Hope Mission and Crisis Text Line.
I have appointment availability Wednesdays and Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
