Why Counseling Chose Me

My journey started at birth, being born to an alcoholic father and a bipolar mother. Life was pretty hard growing up as the oldest of 5 children. My father decided to leave our family when I was 11 years old. This was the event that shattered my world! I experienced several abuses in my life, one being sexually molested when I was 8 years old, which further traumatized me and caused me to second guess my value and my worth. The errors of thought, (that I call lies of the enemy) had been planted and continued to perpetuate throughout my life forming strongholds in my life that had to be broken. At 23 I asked Christ to come into my life and become my Lord and Savior; after a series of poor decisions; dropping out of high school, drug addiction, 3 attempted suicides, and 2 children. It was then that God began to walk me through my "places of pain." Shortly after coming to Christ, I got married to the most wonderful man in the world, who I have been married to for 40 years. Together we have 2 other children. To date, we have 4 adult children, 13 grandchildren, and 5 great-grands. My journey has been a long, hard one, but I know it was all for a Great Kingdom Purpose. About 22 years ago I had a mental breakdown and had to go to therapy. The Counselor was an awesome Christian woman who relied on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to help me navigate through my places of pain to becoming whole. I will forever be grateful. After coming through this 3 and a half year journey I was determined that this is what I wanted to do. So, after getting my GED at 36, having a 17-year career in Corporate America, and going to college to receive my BS and MS degree in Psychology, I am now a Counselor. Along with offering individual counseling in my private practice, I currently work at a Safe House for women rescued from sex trafficking and addiction. Serving alongside my husband, we are also Pastors over Pray and Congregation at Covenant Church on the Carrolton TX campus. My life is dedicated to bringing individuals and couples to spiritual and emotional health.
