Welcome to Inner-standing Counseling Group &
Master Life Coaching
Here’s what we’ve been working on
What do you need to know about me? Well, I think when we meet you will find I am very easy to talk to, and very "down-to-earth." I know how hard it can be to come in and talk to a complete stranger about personal issues. But I think you will find that when you do, you'll find I can often help you to look at your matter in a new way.
I have a PhD in Clinical Counseling and Doctorate in Psychology and few masters degree, one of which is a Master's degree in Social Work with a Clinical Concentration in Advanced Practice in Military Specialization. I am a former United States Marines officer. I am licensed through the state of Texas to practice independently. I have over 20 years experience as a therapist. I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed, Solution Focus, Narrative Therapy , Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy alongside a host of other methodologies. I am EMDR certified. I provide support and practical feedback to help you effectively address the challenges you are facing in your life. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing. Much of my job is to ask you questions you may not have asked yourself, to help you think about yourself and your problems in a new way, so that you can get "unstuck."
Life often leaves us feeling stressed, depressed and or lost. Seeking therapy can be an important step in moving positively towards mental health stability and wholeness. With experience in addressing issues relating to anxiety, depression, trauma, parenting and marital issues, I am passionate about providing a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment for individuals, couples or families who need help. I seek to understand where you are coming from and to partner with you as you identify positive steps in your journey towards healing.
It is my passion and purpose in providing high quality care and support to teens, adults, the elderly and mental health populations. I have a consistent track record of working successfully with individuals, families and groups, within a variety of settings.
If you are looking for a non-judgmental practitioner who is client centered and will try their hardest to assist you with accomplishing mental health stability and desired life goals I’m your Therapist. I practice meeting clients where they are while treating them with dignity and respect. It is my goal to “Ignite the POWER within you.”
