There comes a time in each of our lives when we are faced with a fork in the road. It is hard to decide which path to take on our own. Sometimes we just need a listening ear to help us map out our next steps. Over the last 15 years, I have helped clients work through the impasses in their lives through therapy. Many people are intimidated with entering into therapy because they think it is a lifetime commitment. However, I believe we have times in our lives when we need the listening ear of someone who is not biasedto help us out of our ruts even if only for brief periods of time.
Let me tell you a story. There were two people. These people loved each other. There were times when they were able to express how they were feeling and felt heard. There were other times when they felt miles apart in the same room. Time passed. Feelings were left unexpressed. Walls began to grow around their hearts for protection. They felt as if they were living worlds apart in the very same house.
Hope was beginning to be lost. Hope to find what once connected them. So, they called a therapist. They went to a few sessions. Talked through some of their issues. They began to feel heard again. They began to enjoy their time together. The two people had fun together. These people showed and expressed their love to one another. Hope was restored.
I wish this was the story each and every one of the couples I have seen through therapy could tell. The truth is so many people wait until they are already out of the relationship,whether it be mentally, physically, spiritually, or psychologically. If you feel you are losing hope and want to find restoration. Let’s work together to write together a new chapter in your relationship.
I will try to help, but only if you both are willing to try something different or but returning to things that work to grow your relationship. I don’t believe in cheesy solutions, but I do believe that money is time and time is money. Investing in your relationship is some of the best money you can spend. I will work with you to quickly find solutions to work through the issues you are facing.
I have been working with individuals, couples, and families for over 16 years. I utilize a combination of different therapies including, but not limited to, Solution Focused Therapy (short term therapy), Narrative Therapy (utilizing the narrative of your life as you enter into a new chapter) Client Centered Therapy (understanding with empathy the clients feelings and emotions), and Christian Counselling (using Christian principles to help navigate through life).
I have a BA in Christian Counseling and a BA in Psychology from Ouachita Baptist University located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. I obtained my MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. I also completed all of my Ph.D. work except my dissertation in Marriage and Family therapy from Nova Southeastern University. I hold a specialization in Medical Family Therapy.
