I believe we are created by a good and loving God to have meaning and purpose in life. I believe all lives are sacred and everyone has an innate need for love, security and significance. We also have the ability to choose and sometimes our choices can be made out of a faulty belief system that has been reinforced by life's circumstances, experiences and genetics which can effect one's view of God, self, others and their world.
My goal is to provide a safe and empathetic environment to help my clients move towards healing and growth by addressing one's belief system and the roots of thoughts and behaviors that are negatively affecting one's life. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to develop new and healthier ways of coping with life's challenges and difficulties. My hope is that I can bring hope and be an agent to help my clients identify, test, and evaluate beliefs and automatic thoughts, and to see the opportunity for changing those that are maladaptive. My goal is to help my clients move forward viewing and processing future expectations with the new ways of thinking as it corresponds with the fulfilling the meaning of their own life.
I have been married to David for 31 years and am a mother to 2 adult children. I have a BA in Marketing/Economics from Southwestern University. I am very excited to be continuing in the Practicum stage of my graduate work, with MA in Professional Counseling from Amberton University, to be completed August 2017. My journey has been one of self-discovery and receiving healing from my own performance based acceptance, insecurity, and co-dependency. I have worked in many volunteer and philanthropic organizations and have been mentoring youth and adults throughout my life.
