It is not by accident you are here, reading these words. I believe God our Father directs our path by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ in us. I want you to know you aren't alone on this unchosen journey. I have been on an unchosen journey of infertility since 2005 that will continue for the rest of my earthly life. I get what it's like to feel crushed by the waves of grief and I want you to know I have 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 creative, holistic care for the soul and the body.
For the soul, I take a biblically based Christ centered approach, incorporating prayer, biblical principles, and at times scripture into sessions.
I incorporate a Christian based approach to IFS (Internal Family Systems), a counseling modality addressing the "parts" of us who feel guarded, stuck, and/or wounded.
For the body, I use practical exercises based off of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help you emotionally digest difficult experiences. Read more about EMDR and how it can help.
I offer in person therapy in 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.
