My Approach to Helping
Everyone can use a little support and encouragement. Whether you are experiencing difficulty in relationships, parenting, health, work or school or you just don't feel you are living life to its fullest; I want to help. Depression can make you feel useless, helpless and lost while anxiety creates feelings of panic, fear, and impending doom. I can help you get on your road to recovery, a road you thought was never possible. Growing up with addiction, bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety in my own family has led me on a pursuit to help others. I use an eclectic approach to therapy mixing EMDR, CBT, DBT and existential approaches. I believe that we each have a purpose and I love helping people discover that purpose and blossom. Together we will set goals to improve your emotional well-being and resiliency. You will discover the tools that work best for you and can be used in future situations; after all life is constantly giving us opportunities to learn and grow. Don't put it off another day, give me a call and let's get started. You are worth it.
More Info About My Practice
I am currently accepting new clients at Earthwalk Counseling in Richardson Texas. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, and an EMDRIA-trained EMDR therapist. I have experience working with adults and adolescents in psychiatric hospitals and a substance abuse facility. I have had the privilege of assisting families and individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. Now I am enjoying helping people in a private practice and really appreciate the opportunities to help them in a less emergent environment. Earthwalk Counseling is a very nice, comfortable office with a great team of counselors who really treat people in an understanding, non-judgmental manner.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I really love listening to people and discovering what experiences have shaped them into the people they are today. I really enjoy watching people discover their strengths and hear how they are applying things that they have learned in our sessions to their everyday lives.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
I believe that we can all benefit from going to therapy. Most of us have had more training and education to get a driver's license then we have had in how to take care of ourselves emotionally. Stress negatively impacts our life. It affects our health as well as our relationships. Many of us learn to deal with stress in negative ways which can create more problems. Learning healthy ways to handle stress is very beneficial and can really make a difference.
