I am bound by the rules and codes of the following organizations:
- The Rules of the Texas Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors
- The American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics (2014)
The ACA Code of Ethics states, “The primary responsibility of counselors is to respect the dignity and to promote the welfare of clients.” A.1.a. (www.counseling.org).
I am experienced in counseling individuals, families, and groups.
Treatment specialization includes:
Child and Adolescent Issues
Christian Marital Counseling
Christian Pre-marital Counseling
Domestic Violence Issues,
Family and Recovery
Grief & Loss
Women issues, etc.
I do not prescribe medication. If you or a family member requires services that I cannot provide, I shall assist you in a referral, and with your permission, coordinate services with the specialty provider. In our initial session(s), I will complete a brief evaluation by gathering information about your reasons for pursuing counseling and take a personal history. After the evaluation session(s), I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work together will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue counseling with me. We will work together to develop a counseling plan that offers realistic success and is consistent with your abilities and circumstances. There will be a regular evaluation of the plan to make sure of its continued effectiveness. You have the right to terminate your counseling sessions if you are not a mandated client. Should you at any time, want a referral to another psychotherapist, I can assist you in that process.
