HELLO, and THANK YOU for deciding to make a positive change in your life and for being open to how I can help you.
HISTORY: I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. In the past, I worked in the business world as an employee and later supervisor in various large and small companies. That supervision role prepared me to continue my education in counseling. As a counselor I worked in a community health clinic for seven years. Many of my patients had chronic pain and many health issues in addition to having feelings, thoughts and habits of behavior that they came to me for help in easing. While at the clinic I also taught classes in Weight Management and Smoking Cessation. For the past two years I have been in private practice.
AREAS I WORK WITH: I have helped people with a wide range of concerns and mental health issues, and a few examples are chronic pain, PTSD, Panic Disorders, trauma/abuse, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and life changes. I work with many modalities because I believe that just as each person’s needs are different, so is the type of help they need. I work hard to understand the basis of that person’s background, but only to use that information to structure a future that is changed.
MY APPROACH: I use a neuro-cognitive approach. Within the last 20 years researchers in the neurosciences have become increasingly aware that the brain is malleable and capable of changing these neuronal patterns of anxiety and depression, thoughts, feelings, and habits of behavior, changing them in ways that Do Not require reliving the past in hurtful detail.
THANK YOU for considering me, I would enjoy helping you get to a much more comfortable place!
