My Counseling Specialties
My three therapeutic areas of specialties are Grief, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Trauma. I also specialize in working with Millenials in the helping professions, austism spectrum, and Christians.
Counseling is not one size fits all. All clients have unique needs and preferences for their health and wellness care. My approach is centered around seeing each client as a whole person with needs that are interwoven and affected by all areas of life. Through holistic counseling, we not only tackle mental health but we will take a look at other areas of life as well. Our aim is to heal and find balance in life.
At the heart of my approach is integrative mental health which I complement with mindfulness-based practices and the creative arts.
What is holistic mental health?
Holistic mental health can also be called integrative mental health, alternative mental health and has many other names. The aim is to see the person as a whole individual and unique person. Each person has a different life and needs. Of course the focal point of mental health counseling is on mental health, however there are so many other areas of life that impact mental health or can be impacted by mental health. More info...
*I am not a medical practitioner. I am a Licensed professional cousnelor - Associate with specialized training in intergrative mental health. The state of Texas law allows professional counselors to provide wellness information but does not provide professional counselors with the ability to prescribe.
** I offer general wellness information online. It is not always applicable to everyone. Consult a credible professional for individualized health care services.
***I do not provide services through social media platforms. Due to the importance of your confidentiality and the importance of minimizing dual relationships, I do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). I believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up when we meet and we can talk more about it.
