“Therefore, do not fear your limitations or measure the day’s demands against your strengths. When you face unexpected demands, there is no need to panic. Remember, I am always with you.” – Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach:
Therapy is for anyone who desires having an advocate, confidant, and/or accountability partner while seeking support, growth, empowerment, and/or relief. I believe everyone benefits from having someone in their life that they can turn to in times of triumph and distress.
I strive to provide my clients a safe place to build trust within a therapeutic relationship so they may explore their struggles in depth. My clients have the opportunity to create awareness and gain insight into their lives while obtaining coping skills to navigate life’s uncharted waters. I have a strong desire for my clients to become their best selves and to feel empowered in their life choices. I believe everyone has the capacity to live full and happy lives!
The nature of counseling may involve exploring uncomfortable patterns, thoughts, and behaviors. Therefore, my approach encompasses transparency, humor, unconditional positive regard, and a loving atmosphere that helps clients address, what they see as, unfavorable thoughts, memories, and/or actions. Techniques I use are CBT, Gestalt, Person-Centered, REBT, and attention to somatic and emotional responses clients experience throughout their life journey.
Expectations of Therapy:
“Whatever makes you most uncomfortable is your greatest opportunity for growth.”– Bryant McGill
Prior to beginning therapy, I want to congratulate you on taking a step towards a happier and healthier you, as well as express how proud I am of you pushing through the angst to reach out for help. This is your journey; therefore, therapy will move at a pace you feel most comfortable. Together, we will discuss your goals and the pain, suffering, and circumstances that led you down your life path. We will deepen your understanding of your life, who you are, and your struggles. You will have the opportunity to speak without reservation about the circumstances that ail you in a space you feel comfortable speaking your truth. You will always be protected from judgement and can rest assured that I will always have your best interest at heart. Our conversations will feel like we are sitting down, relaxing and having a cup of coffee or tea. Your true self is always welcome here!
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Community, Family and Addiction Services from Texas Tech University and my Master of Science in Counseling from Lubbock Christian University. I’ve worked with children, adolescents, adults and elderly struggling with a plethora of life issues. I’ve had the pleasure of helping individuals within an inpatient setting struggling with addiction, as well as children transitioning through the foster care system healing from loss of family members and trauma. My work has extended to individuals that are victims of abuse or navigating bereavement. Furthermore, I have worked with many adolescents in school systems that struggled with their home lives. A majority of my clients have sought help for mood disorders, trauma, abuse, life transitions, addiction, bereavement, anxiety, self-worth, anger management, rebuilding relationships, divorce recovery, communication, co-dependency and striving to live healthier lifestyles.
I moved to Colorado a little over a year ago with my two dogs, Hazel Grace and Jaycee May, who go everywhere I go, if they’re allowed. I enjoy being outdoors, building relationships in the community, and chasing adventure. I love spending time around horses, trail riding and participating in hunter/jumping lessons with my coach. I leap at any chance I get to attend a Broncos or Rockies game; though I’ve always been a Rangers fan. My alma mater will always be the Texas Tech Red Raiders. In my alone time, I enjoy photography, nature, and painting. It’s important to me to find time to laugh and enjoy what God has provided me. My support systems are both in Texas and Colorado, so I’m blessed to have such a wide variety of support. I’m a natural planner and very organized in my professional career; therefore, my home life is very spontaneous and easy-going. Lastly, who doesn’t enjoy their Netflix?!
