As a Texas based licensed professional counselor, I know there is more life for you to live. I recognize as adults we have the foundations of who we are laid as children. These thought patterns, learned behaviors, internalized beliefs continue to silently influence us. Labels, diagnoses, and roles are often constraints put on us by the expectations of others. I don't play by those outdated and standardized rules. Instead, I approach my role as a counselor as an opportunity to assist others in identify their goals and learn to shed the hurt, fear, self doubt, and other barriers that have held you hostage for far too long. There is no "right" way to enter or go through counseling. The wrong way--is to skip it. To stay stuck. BUT NOT ANYMORE. You're done hurting and ready to make a new story for yourself.
