I believe that it is important to understand that the challenges of recovering from addiction affect not only the addict, but entire family system as well. I believe that families heal together. The focus of my practice is to work with recovering addicts and their family members in both individual and group settings. As individuals and families begin to heal, underlying issues such as trauma, grief, loss, depression, and codependency often present themselves in a more pronounced way. It is those issues that I feel can be best addressed in a therapeutic setting.
I was raised in the west Texas town of Abilene. Upon graduating from Southern Methodist University with a Bachelors Degree in Communications Fine Arts, I embarked on lengthy career in the entertainment industry. Following a series of personal challenges, I began my own personal journey of recovery and self-exploration. I have come to understand that recovery is an ongoing process of healing, both for the recovering individual and his or her family.
In 2011, I made the decision to dedicate my professional life to helping individuals and their families recover and heal together. I received a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Southern Methodist University and began working in the mental health field.
I am proud to be a part of Bluffview Counseling and I look forward to continuing and expanding upon the vision of our founder.
