About me

I specialize in helping individuals cope with the different kinds of losses: 1) Primary losses - death of a love one, friend or pet; break-up, separation, divorce; loss of job, loss of money, victim of a crime and losses due to Covid19 2)Secondary losses - moving, illness, changes and success; 3) Limbo losses - not knowing the outcome, Covid 19, waiting the outcome of a test result, being a care-giver, a chronic illness, a lawsuit, separation; 4) Complicated losses - primary, secondary and limbo losses going on at the same time. The reactions to loss could be feeling helpless, fearful, empty, despair, pessimistic, irritable, angry, guilty, restless, loss of concentration, hope, motivation, energy, change in appetite, sleep pattern and a tendency to be more fatigued and error-prone. Are you experiencing all or any of those feelings? I also work with individuals who desire prayer before our sessions.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas for 20+ years, a National Certified Counselor (NCC) for 30+ years, and a Board Certified Coach (BCC) for 7 years.
