Individual Therapy in Dallas and Online Throughout Texas
“Life is difficult.”
This is the first line in Scott Peck’s The Road Less Traveled.
He goes on to explain that we experience pain because we do not accept this fact.
The author details the psychological and spiritual components of growth and healing.
The truth is that everyone faces challenges and adversity; it’s what we do in those moments that determines our course for the future.
We can’t go back and change the past. We cannot control the future.
What we have is this moment, right now.
Benefits for Individual Therapy
We often talk about communication in regard to couples, but communication is how we express ourselves and connect with those around us.
Sometimes we find ourselves frustrated through a lack of words or being misinterpreted by another.
Through individual therapy you can learn how to better share your thoughts, feelings, and desires with others.
Feeling Confident & Worthy
You are worthy. You deserve the love and admiration of others.
These are truths that we easily lose sight of on life’s journey.
Become better acquainted with who you really are and who you were meant to be through individual therapy.
The world can feel overwhelming, and we can feel like the walls are closing in.
Depression is like a heavy blanket. It smothers us, yet there’s something strangely comforting there.
You can learn to live your life outside of your depression.
About Individual Counseling
Life really is difficult. Especially when we try to do it all on our own. This can leave us feeling inadequate to take on the challenges of life. Through individual therapy, you’ll learn to tap into your internal strength. You are enough. You just need to be reminded now and then. (And it’s also okay to ask for help.)
By working with me, I will show you how to take back control of your life from the grip of anxiety and depression. Your world may feel smaller now after the loss of a loved one. I can help you feel joy again. Healing is possible.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I have learned as much if not more from my clients as they have from me. I’m merely the guide, a teacher who can help you learn new skills to improve your life.
It all starts with a free consultation- one 20 minute call to determine if working together makes sense.
You are not the sum of what has happened to you.
You are so much more.

Areas of Specialty
Grief and Loss
Loss is a concept that we do not face readily. In fact, we minimize the impact of loss. We tell ourselves that we are tough, we don't care anyway, it wasn't that important. Or, to quote Peyton Manning, "walk it off, rub some dirt on it".
We learn much of this behavior from how our families dealt with loss. Now, when life happens, when losses occur, we are set up with complications on recognizing and dealing with our emotions. And when a loss due to death occurs, we are unprepared to cope with the impact of the loss of a loved one.
Family and Other Relationships
We learn about relationships all of our life: from our family, friends, school, social groups.
This does not mean that the lessons we learned, the experiences we had, are indicative of a healthy relationship.
Since it's all we know, we believe it is "normal", an expectation we accept as truth.
A "reset" in this area can give our life new focus.
The formula used in career counseling involves assessing the skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to function successfully in a specific role.
We can use this same formula, add personality and interest preferences to craft a plan for the future- our own personal "rerouting" of our GPS.

This of course varies from person to person, but many of my clients find that working with me for just a few weeks is enough to start seeing results.
What happens in the first session?
Prior to your first session I'll send you a link to fill out and sign your intake paperwork. During the session, we will review this information and start to dive into what has brought you to therapy. We'll also talk about your goals for therapy.
