Allow me to introduce myself…
Welcome! Thank you for checking out this website! Whether you are interested in finding a therapist to help you navigate through a difficult situation or just browsing around, I hope you can find what you are looking for.
First of all, you might be wondering what those letters by my name mean…
LMFT-A stands for “Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist – Associate”. This means I am licensed by the state of Texas to provide therapeutic services to individuals, couples, and families. The “Associate” means I am in the process of accruing a minimum of 3,000 hours of supervised experience. This is to ensure that I am providing the best therapeutic service as possible.
I received my undergraduate degree in Family Studies at Lubbock Christian University and completed my Master’s Degree through Abilene Christian University in Marriage and Family Therapy. As you may have gathered, I am a Christian and as such, I take my calling as a therapist seriously. I love that I have the privilege to walk alongside people who are in the midst of a trying season and help them navigate towards reconciliation and growth.
As a therapist, I lean towards a more postmodern approach. I emphasize compassion and empathy. I firmly believe that all humans naturally tend towards growth. I also understand that sometimes we get stuck- and that’s okay. I will help guide you through your challenges and find your path towards growth again. As a marriage and family therapist, I also have extensive training in systemic thinking. Basically, this means that I love to look at the BIG picture to see how your family and other important relationships might play a role in your life, so don’t be surprised if I ask your relatives to join in on a session. You can learn more about what to expect in the therapy room by clicking the WHAT TO EXPECT tab above.
Most of my therapeutic experience has been working with individuals and families who are grieving a loss of some sort. I volunteered bereavement services at Hospice of Lubbock for three years and have become passionate about working with the grieving population (both young and old). I also have experience working with distressed couples, blended families and parenting issues.
If you are considering me as a therapist, I would love to have the chance to talk with you to see if I can meet your needs. If not, I can work with you to refer you to someone who can. You can reach me through the CONTACT tab above.
