What I love about this work...
...is the opportunity to work with people in the process of exploring and striving to reach therapeutic goals. We often get closed in by a set of assumptions about ourselves and our relationships that keep us from reaching truly attainable changes. It is exciting to watch the growth and change that people are able to make as they discover hidden resources for transformation within themselves.
What does LPC and NCC mean?
The LPC means that I am a Licensed Professional Counselor through the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. The NCC means I am a National Certified Counselor through the National Board of Certified Counselors, Inc. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University and a Master’s degree in Counseling and Human Development from Texas Woman’s University. Since 1994 I have worked with a wide variety of individuals during my graduate training & postgraduate employment, both with non-profit agencies and in private practice.
PREPARE/ENRICH - Premarital and Marital Enrichment Counseling
My approach to psychotherapy:
I believe that treatment should be individualized based on the individual client’s needs, strengths, resources and goals. Because of this, I use a variety of therapeutic approaches:
Cognitive – learning how our thinking impacts emotions and behavior and challenging that thinking where necessary to make desired changes
Interpersonal – looking beyond just the individual to explore the importance of relationships (both at home and at work) on current functioning
Educational – giving clients factual information they need to help them create new options, understand themselves and their environment
Experiential - using guided imagery, drawing, and other non-verbal means to explore issues (this does not include hypnosis)
I advocate a treatment team approach. What this means is that I will help people get connected with other community and professional resources that will help them reach their goals more effectively.
Using a wide variety of approaches helps me customize your treatment specifically to meet your needs.
