About Me

Welcome--
I believe in challenging the status quo.
I believe in thinking differently.
I believe my purpose in life is to partner with you to transform your life

I have over twenty-five years of experience in substance abuse counseling, Christian counseling, and trauma counseling focusing on helping people like you overcome the effects of trauma, anxiety, and alienation from God. I am a counselor in the state of Texas.

Client Interaction
My clients will come into a session very upset and possibly crying. It seems by the end of the session they have laughed at some point. They tell me that it’s the first time they have laughed for a while. They also tell me things that they haven’t ever told anyone before—with a sigh of relief. They feel comfortable with me. Recovering from depression, anxiety or PTSD is hard work. Wrestling with your relationship with God is also hard work. I’m here to help you feel better.

I am solely an online counselor. My clients appreciate being able to receive counseling from the comfort of their own homes. Nasty weather, traffic jams, distance to get to see the counselor of choice, parking problems, and running into someone you know when going into an office are not problems with online counseling. These were all advantages before COVID-19. Now with social distancing, the advantages of online counseling are even more beneficial.

I am here to teach you how to be your own counselor.

Hay is so flexible and we have been able to meet weekly thanks to her flexibility!
I leave our sessions with homework on how to be better and to treat myself better. I do look forward to talking to her every week! She is very straight up person and I love that she brings God into our conversations, without overwhelming the situation!!

Gay Hunter is so amazing and has helped me work through the most trying times of my life! She’s patient, understanding, empathetic and funny!
