Life can be hard and unfair from time to time. My desire is to provide the skills, direction, clarity and a sense of control when life is turned upside down. Counseling is not just a job for me but, a passion. I enjoy helping those who are ready to move forward but may not know how or feel like they are unable. Each person is different, and I enjoy the challenge of working through what seems like impossible hurdles to clients at the time. After the hard work of investing in oneself, clients often enjoy feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction when their lives change for the better, as they overcome those hurdles.
Interesting facts about me include 14 years’ service in the United States Air Force, a Master of Arts in Counseling, and a license in professional counseling. I have extensive experience in assisting clients struggling with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem and borderline personality disorder. I developed and taught a Cognitive Behavioral curriculum that is now standard practice since 2017 in three counties adult probation departments, Amarillo TX.
My philosophy is “there’s no way out but through”. I offer my clients a helping hand through life’s disappointments, changes, challenges and outright catastrophes. I regularly witness people do more than they ever thought they could! You don’t have to “go it alone”. When you’re ready for change, I’m here to help.
