Identity & Self-worth
Life is difficult and for the most part, we are all doing the best we can. But, because we aren’t perfect, we have to deal with both the consequences of our own choices and those of the people around us. Often the costs become bigger than we ever imagined; they grow out of proportion and cause us to become stuck in strategies that don’t work for us anymore. My job as your counselor is to guide you to freedom from whatever binds you by helping you cope with your current battles, resolve past hurts and gain awareness as to how it all affects your current choices and relationships. Relationships can be healing and I count it a true privilege to be able to join you where you are and walk along side you.
I have experience working with individual adults and couples dealing with a variety of life’s struggles: unresolved childhood trauma, anxiety, hurt in relationships, betrayal, miscommunication, and abuse. I have an interest in Christian Counseling and am happy to apply these concepts and techniques when requested.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas at Austin in Applied Learning and Development. I worked for 7 years as a middle school teacher and then decided on a career change. In 2009, I went back to school at Texas State University and received my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. I am happily married and live in Pflugerville with my husband and two dogs: Roscoe and Harley. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies at home, crafting, reading, volunteering at church and mission work.
