Education 
 
My educational background is varied. I am an Ordained Minister of the Gospel and a Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor, licensed by the National Christian Counselors Association, License #19354. I have a Ph.D. in Pastoral Counseling from Ministry Institute International in Powell, TN.  In addition, I have a B.S. in Exercise Physiology, an M.S. in Kinesiology, and an M.B.A with an emphasis in management.   I completed 4 years of study in Oriental Medicine receiving a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, including acupuncture and Chinese herbology.  I was a licensed acupuncturist and Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. (Yes I LOVE school!)
 Passion 
 
My passion is seeing women set free from fear, anxiety, unforgiveness, self-hatred, and rejection by applying Biblical principles to their lives. I love to work with people and show them how they can '...recover themselves out of the snare of the devil..." (2 Timothy 2:26).  I utilize Cognitive Therapy as well as Temperament Therapy in individual, abuse, trauma, chronic illness, and addiction counseling.  
 Christian Counseling 
 
As a Christian Counselor, I believe that many problems can be spiritual in nature, resulting from either not understanding biblical truth or from sinful behavior.  I also recognize that personal problems can arise because of physical, social-environmental influences and psychological pressures.
 
I believe that God created all individuals in His image. We can only feel complete and fulfilled through a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. My main goal is to enable clients to move toward greater emotional and spiritual health by becoming more like Jesus Christ.
 I believe counseling should involve praying about the client’s difficulties and looking to the authority of the Bible for guidance, thus building a dependency on God for the client.  There is forgiveness for our past, and strength for the present and hope for our future when we trust the Lord to meet our daily needs, and heal our emotional wounds.

My goal is to reflect the character of our Lord and love and care for my clients as He would.  I will not force religion, but it is the foundation of which I counsel.
 My Practice 
 
 
There are 4 ways in which I choose to set up a counseling session.
  1. Traditional. I have a home office outside of Canton, TX where I counsel. I use this office for local clients and  I offer multi-day intensives that allow us to accomplish a great deal of work in a condensed time frame. I have a guest house available for individuals that need overnight accommodation. The counseling varies for each client. Currently, I work with many individuals who have a chronic illness or disease.   
  2. Video Call. I work with clients from many different areas via a HIPAA-compliant video service through an app called Simple Practice. My client downloads an app and we can communicate easily.
  3. Phone Call. I offer phone consultations and counseling services. Many individuals are not comfortable using video and like to retain some privacy. 
  4. Email.  I offer a monthly email service which allows for counseling via email. The counseling varies from client to client but for those that wish to communicate via email or text only this is a great choice. 

 Personal 
 
Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and several other autoimmune diseases. I love working with people diagnosed with chronic illnesses to help them position themselves as overcomers, not as victims. We are not a disease!
 
I am happily married to David Broussard. We have 1 chocolate Lab named, Roxy and live in Canton, TX.
