About My Clients
I work from the perspective that a person’s self is wholly good; my care is affirmative of all people and I seek to encourage my clients to live as their most authentic selves. Life, the world, ✨the patriarchy✨ have a habit of convincing us that we, no matter how hard we try or how diligently we work, are not good enough. We are not enough. My job is to help you remember for yourself that YOU are EXACTLY ENOUGH, and then advocate for that truth in all areas of your life.
My Background and Approach
I graduated with both my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Bachelor of Arts in Music from Tarleton State University. I am passionate about helping you find peace in your here and now, processing through and accepting your yesterdays and tomorrows to honor the moment you're already in. I prioritize authenticity, connection, autonomy, emotional experiencing, and functional feelings skills to walk with clients through the challenges they face. I focus on meeting clients exactly where they are, inviting you to notice the skills you already have to manage that moment, and any other difficult moment, you have in life. I'll also teach you some new skills along the way. My goal is to ensure that you recognize your own worth and ability in this life, provide you a space to practice the skills to put that ability into practice, and encourage that practice when you head out into the real world. You've got this!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe firmly that each person has the potential for change, and that this potential arises in how one moves throughout the world and with what intention they move. Each person’s perception of change looks different, in that most people are experiencing change differently, and that this experience is their reality. I also tend to think that change looks more like acceptance than diversification. Rather than trying to force certain aspects of self to not exist, you move through the process of coping with, integrating, and accepting who you really are. This process will involve disowning any false beliefs given to you by someone other than you, finding love for your true self, then moving forward with the ability to uphold said self-love throughout life’s hardships. This regulation of love and acceptance brings you to a place of peace with life and yourself.
