About Us

Life is a journey full of blessings and hardships. As a Christian counselor, my role is to facilitate your growth through those times of hardship. I know we are all created for a purpose and while I don’t believe God puts hardship on us, He does allow struggles to come our way for His expressed purpose. Our role in creation and my role as a therapist, is to assist you in determining how to deal with your hardships to His glory.

All knowledge and counseling success I have experienced is from God and through the power of His Holy Spirit working in me. While I have seen much success in my work with individuals, couples and families, I give God all the glory. It is not I but Him working through me. I am merely His vessel.

God has given us “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth” –the Bible– and the answers to all life’s problems are found there. I take a biblical approach using His Word and recognized theoretical approaches to assist you in moving from where you are to where you want to be.

I obtained my certification in Reality Therapy Choice Therapy in Dublin, Ireland at the University of Dublin. I received training by Dr. William Glasser, the originator of Reality Therapy Choice Therapy, in 2004. I received my Bachelor and Master degrees from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas where I continue to reside today.
