I have a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Amberton University, Texas. I am currently licensed by the State of Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Supervised by Yolanda Swope LPC S. I am currently doing a MS in Family Studies.
I have an integrative approach in my counseling practice which incorporates a Humanistic/ Existential Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Systems, Narrative Counseling etc. I do take into consideration the physiological and neurological aspects in diagnosis and treatment. I am trained in EMDR and have knowledge of how Trauma effects the brain and body.
Counseling/ therapy works with a collaborative approach between the client and the counselor. Growth and development are never easy, and neither are changes. Counseling sessions can make you aware of the issues you are coping with and equip you with the skills and strategies to live a healthy life. One day or one step at a time towards where you want to be is attainable through learning therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC’s). I see recovery as journey of healing and a process of unlearning patterns that once were needed to avoid or numb pain. Awareness and Acceptance is the first step to change. “The Curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
