The counseling relationship is unique and unlike any other you have in your life. It is confidential and is based on trust and non-judgment. What’s most unique, is that I truly listen to your story and provide you a safe and supportive environment to be authentic. We work as a team to construct your goals and I help you challenge your own thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are affecting your life. I will guide you into becoming a stronger and healthier for the change you hope to achieve. My approach is direct and I will not leave you guessing.  When working with couples, I tend to have a direct approach and help you both evaluate what you need to change, improve, and learn to contribute to the growth and healing of the marriage. Some of my favorite motivational quotes are:

“There is freedom awaiting you, on the breezes of the sky, and you ask, “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling what if you fly?” – Erin Hanson

“It’s true. Beautiful things have dents and scratches too.” – Anonymous

“I survived because the fire inside of me burns brighter than the fire around me.” – Joshua Graham

Finding my own strength from tragedy is exactly what motivated me to enter into the mental health profession, so I could help others. My integrated counseling approach includes trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, play therapy, sand tray therapy.

CAREER BIO

I graduated from Lamar University in 1998 with a Bachelor’s of Applied Arts and Science majoring in Education.  I began a career in teaching special education for 3 and 4 year olds with disabilities in Silsbee, Texas. I am certified by the Texas Education Agency to teach elementary (EC-8th), early childhood-special education (PreK-6th), generic special education (PK-12th), and early childhood (Pre-K-Kindergarten). After school, I was also a home trainer for children who qualified under the autism spectrum.

In 2005, I paused my career to focus on raising my 4 amazing daughters. When my twin girls were two-years old, I opened a small business and attended graduate school until my graduation 2013 from Lamar University with a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I continued my education until 2014 and obtained a certification from the Licensed Professional Counselor Program.

Before coming to New Path Counseling group, my experience from 2014 to 2016 was at the Garth House, in Beaumont, Texas. I was able to specialize in counseling sexually and physically abused children and their families. During that time, I provided counseling services to the children, their parents, siblings, and caregivers of these abused children. Seeing these victims be empowered and learning how to cope with their trauma was a beautiful experience. I have completed training to be a Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapist.

PERSONAL BIO

My life is like a three ring “organized” circus!! I am married to a very supportive and loving spouse that probably needs therapy himself…because he lives with me and our four daughters, who keep us very busy! Being organized is not an option for me as a mom of 4! As a family, we spend our extra time at the lake every chance we get. I call the lake my “happy place”. My 3 dogs are also my “fur babies” and our chocolate lab is a therapy dog for our home. My passion is helping others in my free time as well, and as an advocate for children and victims of crime.  I am active in a non-profit organization that helps victims of crime locally. “Your silences gives consent” – Plato.
