LPC, CSAT
 

Counseling is a process in which the client and the counselor come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life, and work in a systemic fashion toward realizing those goals.

I have worked with clients on a variety of issues and I have specialized in helping those with depression, anxiety, anger, codependency, sexual addictions, and sexual identity issues. I see such issues as symptoms of something deeper and my goal is to work with you to uncover those root issues. I also help those who have experienced sexual or emotional trauma at all levels. I have completed basic training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy to help in single-event, childhood, continuous, and recent trauma. My desire is to help provide a safe place to find real freedom and healing. 

My counseling style is eclectic and an integrative approach. I pull from multiple facets of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am also a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

As a Christian Counselor, I have a unique perspective for those who wish to approach their counseling experience through the lens of biblical truth. Though I am a Christian and work from a biblically informed perspective, my job is not to impose my values onto clients or change their own beliefs. I respect the religious beliefs of all persons and will work with anyone who is ready to work towards individual and relational growth.

Education and Background

After completing my B.A. in Religion at Baylor University, I moved to New Orleans to attend the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where I studied to earn a Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling. I spent my practicum counseling seminary students and those in the New Orleans community on a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and anger issues. 

 

However, in 2015, the notorious affair-seeking website Ashley Madison was hacked, leaking thousands of stolen user data to the public and outing those who signed up to use the website's service to seek extramarital affairs. As a result, my schedule was flooded with those seeking freedom from sexual addiction. I didn't know much about the topic at first but through classes, books, and different trainings,  I began to better understand the nature of sexual addictions and how to help lead others to freedom. 

It did not take long for me to realize that sex addiction was not just about sex - it's about medicating pain and past hurts. Too many with sexual addictions had experienced incredible pain, trauma, or emotional hurt in their past. Their addiction was simply a way to help medicate that emotional pain.

 

In 2016, I began to study how trauma is connection to addiction and realized that trauma work is a necessary part of any recovery plan. I sought training to be more trauma-informed in my approach and completed EMDR Basic Training, allowing me to better integrate trauma work into addiction recovery.

After graduating seminary at the end of 2017, I moved back to Houston, TX and began working at Houston's First Baptist Church in their counseling center. There I continued to work with sexual addiction and led multiple sexual addiction process groups. I also worked with those with complex trauma and other behavioral health issues. Then later in 2019, I followed my friend and former supervisor, Huston McComb to begin working for Judah Christian Counseling as a second counseling location.

And in 2022, I completed additional training with faculty of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals and became certified as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. 

When not at the counseling office, I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I find cooking to be a fun hobby along with video games, reading fiction, and playing the tuba.
