BREEDLOVE COUNSELING

If you have found yourself on an unchosen journey, you aren't alone. I have been on an infertility journey since 2005.  I get what it's like to feel crushed by the waves of grief and I want you to know there is so much hope for you!  If you are reading this, consider this your message in a bottle, the thread of hope you have been looking for. 

I have a hunch you feel stuck, maybe frozen in time, watching life pass you by. On the outside no one may be able to see it, but inside you have been fighting to hold it together.  There is hope for ruminating and intrusive thoughts, questions for God, and all the intense emotions and feelings your body has been experiencing.  I would love to hear your story!

TYPE OF COUNSELING

  • I believe in caring for both the body and the heart (the  inner person: mind, emotions, will).

  • For the heart: I take a biblically based Christ centered approach to therapy - incorporating prayer, biblical principles, and at times scripture verses or passages into sessions.

  • For the body: I incorporate practical tools to help the body process difficult life experiences, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  Read more about EMDR and how it can help.

  • I offer both in person (Lake Dallas, TX) and video based telehealth sessions to women in Texas. 


      I hold to this statement of faith  from my local church.  
 

I believe you can find joy on your unchosen journey and I would be honored to walk with you, helping you reconnect in your relationship with God and others.
