Approach & Philosophy
We all have different life-experiences and the way we perceive those experiences can have a powerful impact on our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.  We may not have control over everything that happens in life but counseling can help us learn to make positive changes in how we think, feel and respond to situations.  Equipped with new and more effective ways to face life's challenges, we can choose not to let negative experiences from the past define who we are or how we live in the present.  
I offer convenient after-school, evening and Saturday appointments.  Please call me at 972-762-5795 or visit for more information.  I look forward to connecting with you.
