I’m a licensed professional counselor in the East Texas area. I specialize in working with women who are seeking healing and recovery from trauma, including emotional, psychological, physical, and sexual abuse. I also specialize in treating narcissistic abuse, codependency, couples, and women’s issues. I have, however, worked in various agencies and facilities treating men, women, teens, and children struggling with issues including addiction, violence, mood disorders, personality disorders, dissociative disorders, anger issues, and family issues.
I understand trauma to manifest differently in different individuals, but some of the major symptoms I see are lack of identity, empty sense of self, codependency, depression, self sabotage, anxiety, personality and mood disorders, self disgust, dissociation, difficult relationships, self hatred, suicidal thoughts, self harm, and anger.
I believe that the healing process is tough but infinitely rewarding. My role in your recovery is to be a coach, accountability partner, advocate, counselor, cheerleader, and a professional that may have to help you learn hard things.
I work from a trauma perspective and pull from many modalities and theories including Internal Family Systems, Trauma Informed, Acceptance and Commitment, Humanistic, and Holistic.
I know that it takes an enormous amount of courage to face our past and work towards our future, and I look forward to working on yours with you!
