My Counseling Approach

I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family / Child and Adolescent Therapy at Abilene Christian University. I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Tarleton State University. Overall, my philosophy as a therapist is to treat each person as a unique individual, worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of his or her personal circumstances or struggles. It is my desire to come alongside, challenge, and encourage my clients to find healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.  I have found that most people come to counseling because they want to be happier. Counseling becomes an exploration of what is getting in the way of happiness. Those interference's to happiness can be old patterns that no longer serve us, a lack of fulfillment, self-judgment, or behaviors that are keeping us from feeling good about ourselves. Counseling explores these interference's and helps the person remove obstacles to happiness so he or she can go on to lead a happy and more fulfilling life.
