The truth of the matter is that this is not about me, it’s about you.
You are the one that matters to me, and helping you get the results that you want is paramount. You can expect that when you pick up that phone or walk into my office that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that you deserve.
The main thing to understand is that you are not wrong. Your view of the world is yours, and who am I to tell you that it is right or wrong?
If your views aren’t what you want them to be though, and you are finding that you’re not getting the results from life you would like, then maybe it’s time to cultivate a change in outlook.
My approach is very diverse when it comes to dealing with clients. People come from all different walks of life, so I want to make sure that I am sensitive to that.
Some people come in more ready than others, and that means the starting points for everybody are not the same. I am here to meet you where you are and make sure that we set goals in place that we are both comfortable with.
Am I going to guarantee that therapy will work for you? Unfortunately I can’t do that, but I will tell you that it has helped many and it will continue to help.
That is a very real concern and I completely understand being hesitant. Sometimes just cracking open that door and letting a little light in can be the catalyst for a very real change. This is something you don’t want to miss, I can guarantee that.
Sometimes the biggest load that we carry is our own silence. There is so much shame and fear surrounding our problems. Verbalizing that to another human being means that we might get exposed.
As far as my experience goes, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Houston in 2007, followed by Master’s Degree from the University of Houston Clearlake in 2013. For the last 10 years I have worked with adolescents and young adults.
I served as a director, counselor and recovery coach at Archway Academy, the largest sober high school in the United States.
As a person in long term recovery myself, I understand the pain, hopelessness and fear of having a life change. When I was 17, my life forever changed when I decided to make that transformation. I literally feared that a life without drugs and alcohol was no life at all. That fear kept me from ever seeking help and kept me stuck a lot longer than I needed to. It was with the help of family, friends and lots of counseling that landed me in the place I find myself today. I met a counselor that understood me. He understood my pain as a teen and didn’t discredit it. The change wasn’t easy and the road wasn’t always smooth, but I wouldn’t change it one bit.
My passion ever since I became an adult has been to help adolescents and young adults who struggle with helping themselves. I found out firsthand what the other side looks like, and I want you to experience it as well.
