My Approach to Helping
I am a wife of a good hearted man and a mother of three incredible adults. I cuss on occasion, and have a lot of tattoos. I have experienced enough life to be dangerous and continue to be amazed by the resilience of humans. I believe "what is in us is for us" and the body has the answers to our physical, emotional, and psychological problems.

She has had the privilege of walking alongside clients as they navigate life's transitions and losses. Aldeena specializes in grief, depression, chronic illness, attachment issues, trauma, and women's issues. Aldeena completed her Master of Education in Counseling at West Texas A&M University. Her experience includes individual therapy, grief recovery groups, and inpatient therapy settings. This experience allows her to work with a wide range of mental health issues. Aldeena utilizes multiple treatment approaches including EMDR, internal family systems, compassionate inquiry, emotionally focused therapy, and narrative therapy. As we navigate through life, often times our experiences leave us with unmet expectations and painful emotions. Our human nature tells us to distance ourselves from this pain because it is uncomfortable, but this only leads to further disconnection. This disconnection often leads to depression, anxiety, and feelings of loss. Aldeena will help you find new insight as you rediscover the ability, within yourself, to transform the quality of your life. Seeking help is a brave step toward your own healing and recovery.
