I’m an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) and bring years of diverse experience to my clients. I work out of two office spaces, one in Clifton Texas and the other in Waco Texas. Consequently, residents in Bosque and McLennan Counties will be able to easily access our services.
Know that I’ve experienced my share of difficulties and trials.
Let’s be real.
I realize that looking into therapy is probably the last thing you really wanted to do today. I recognize your pain is overwhelming and you don’t see a way out. You’re tired of the pain, chaos and suffering within your life. You honestly may be wondering, “can therapy even help?”
I get it.
No matter how deep your pain or how long it has been going on, I believe that you and your family can change and grow. I bring a listening ear, and a deep compassion towards understanding your suffering. During our time together, we will work to understand factors from your past that contribute to your current situation, because current trauma is sometimes connected to past trauma. Would you like to feel the freedom to breathe and live again?
Who am I?
I grew up in a small town in the Panhandle of Texas called Quitaque, population 432. Growing up in a small town, you either fit in or you don’t. I wasn’t popular. Fitting in was difficult and I spent a good deal of time comparing myself to others while often feeling out of place.
I struggled lots too.
I struggled in school from elementary to graduate school; it wasn’t easy for me. Tests of all sorts were incredibly difficult. I knew the content, but couldn’t prove it when it came time to taking the exam. Eventually, I was diagnosed with test anxiety. I sought help in the form of counseling, which paved the way for test accomdations.
Shortly after graduating from HSU, I was in a horrific car accident where a dump truck ran over my car, injured my passenger and of course, totaled my car. It was awful. For years following this incident, I struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and went to therapy several times for help.
IT’S NORMAL TO NOT HAVE EVERYTHING TOGETHER…
I’m not perfect. I struggled and have had my own share of setbacks and struggles. It’s not the struggle that defines us, but it’s how we endure, cope and overcome the difficult seasons in our lives. I work with families, children and adults who have been through hell and back.
During my time at Mental Health Mental Retardation (MHMR), I developed a deep compassion for mental illness and the suffering it brings to individuals and their families. If you’re still here, it means that there’s a part of you that is hopeful. As a therapist, I work well with clients who believe that change is possible. However, healthy change in therapy takes time.
