Trained in Animal Assisted Therapy
Hello! I have been serving the community of Flower Mound for over 7 years and am the founder and owner of Living Perspective Counseling, Inc. My goal has been to create a collaborative group practice with clinician's that I know personally and professionally to support each other and our clients! I am credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) and received my Master's Degree in Counseling and Development from Texas Women's University. I earned my Bachelor's in Rehabilitation Studies from the University of North Texas.
My areas of focus include: substance and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, depression, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, self harm, woman's issues, life transitions, relational challenges, crisis intervention, parents struggling with teens, and teens struggling with parents. I am EMDR trained; please contact me to further discuss how this could benefit you. What is EMDR? I am also trained in Animal Assisted Therapy from The University of North Texas and incorporate Sammie, my dog-in-training during many sessions. As an LPC-S, I enjoy mentoring newer clinicians in the counseling field and walking alongside their process to become a professional counselor. I am also an ally and LGTBQ+ affirming.
In addition to private practice, I have clinical experience utilizing group and individual therapy at a dual diagnosis residential treatment center for addictions and co-occurring mental health issues. In the past, I have worked throughout Tarrant County in schools and the community helping children and adolescents affected by alcohol and drug abuse by providing support groups, and prevention services.
I am originally from the North Texas area and plan to stay! In my down time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, working out (kinda), participating in community events and volunteering, trying new restaurants, hiking with Sammie, and traveling.
