I see individual therapy as the challenging yet rewarding process of identifying, acknowledging, and processing difficult experiences and the feelings that come with those experiences, whether that is grief, anxiety, trauma, or depression. The end goal of therapy is to gain a better understanding of how our negative experiences have affected our past and present without continuing to allow them to control our future and, in doing so, gain skills to better manage our lives and future challenges. As for couples and family therapy, the process also includes identifying problematic or harmful communication patterns and behaviors and finding ways to work as a team to address those and support each other in creating and maintaining more healthy patterns for the future. I would be honored to come along side you in your journey towards healing and growth and peace.
I have been married to my husband, Josh, for 15 years, and we have been gifted with 4 amazing boys, ages 1, 3, 8, and 11. We attend a local church and take time each week to worship and fellowship with other believers as a family. When I am not serving my clients, I spend my time homeschooling our boys, reading good books, attempting to garden, and tending our flock of backyard chickens.
I am currently a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Texas. I work with a wide variety of individuals, including, but not limited to, children (5 and up), adolescents, and adult women as well as couples and families.
I have been practicing in Texas since 2009 in settings including children’s services, family services, school services, drug prevention and intervention services working through a variety of issues including depression and anxiety, mood disorders, drug and tobacco education, addiction counseling, in and out patient group and family therapy, parent education, and individual crisis counseling. I also have experience working on staff with a church and offering spiritual support and coaching as well as knowledge and training in addressing mental health concerns specific to pre- and post-natal women as well as antenatal trauma and perinatal loss. My primary experience has been working with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families helping them to gain better communication and coping skills and address past trauma and maladaptive habits.
There are many different techniques to address these issues in therapy. The approaches I tend to integrate into my work most often are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, both Structural and Strategic Family and Couples Therapy Techniques, and, when applicable with younger clients, Play Therapy. These therapy techniques involve helping clients to identify thought and behavior patterns that could be maladaptive, and then finding empowering strategies that improve overall functioning in the individual, couple, or family system. They also work well with creating both short and long term goals with clients, which is an essential part of tracking advancement in the therapy process so that clients have concrete evidence of their progress.
