In therapy, there is no room for bull***t!
I got into this work for a reason. As a counselor, I care deeply for every one of my clients. I take the trust that they put in me very seriously. Because of this, I want my clients to get the best version of me. This means that I’m going to be honest. I mean, really honest. Additionally, I’m going to be straightforward with you. This is is central to everything I do as a counselor and the work I do with my clients. Think about what you need from a counselor. Think about what’s worked in the past and what hasn’t. If you think you need things to change fast and to be sugar coated, think about how that’s worked in the past. I’m not the counselor who beats around the bush or tries to be too “nice.” Because I know this would be a disservice on my part. As a counselor and fellow human, I am on your side. Through our work together in counseling, I want to see you thrive!
My Role As A Counselor
As a counselor, I know that I have a job to do. My only agenda is to help you feel better. And, to feel more fulfilled with your life and relationships. I do this in a variety of ways. Additionally, I’m an open book. You can expect me to be non-judgmental to all kinds of thoughts, feelings, and lifestyles. I’ve worked with many different people experiencing all kinds of different situations. So, I’m not naive. I know that relationships are not like in the movies. They look and feel different. And, that they come in all shapes and sizes!
As a marriage counselor, what makes me so confident that I can help?
When it comes to marriage counseling, I know my stuff. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have extensive training in a wide range of areas that might be relevant to your issues. Family conflict, sexuality, child development, family systems, as well as mental health, general psychology, etc. In addition, I have many years of experience working with a multitude of different dynamics that couples have brought into session.
A Few Of My Jenniferisms
Throughout my years as a marriage counselor and online therapist in Dallas, TX, I’ve seen many things. I’ve seen some wild things happen. And, I’ve seen some incredible growth within my clients. On top of that, I’ve been able to tag along on the journey of my clients as they work towards the life they want. With all of this very rich and in-depth experience, I’ve come up with a few Jenniferisms that fit many different situations.
“Your actions are so loud I can’t hear your words.”
“No matter what YOU do, be the best YOU that YOU can be.
As A Marriage Counselor in Dallas, TX, I Know My Stuff
I’ve put in the effort to be qualified for this kind of work. In fact, 1500 of my 3000 training hours were spent helping couples and families (I know!). This served as a great opportunity for me to get really familiar with different family dynamics. In addition, I got the chance to work with couples at all different stages of their relationship. And since I received my license as a marriage counselor, I’ve helped many more people and have gained experience with almost every problem you could think of!
Don’t Forget About Some Life Experience
Beyond my formal training, much of my empathy and understanding comes from dealing with my own s**t!
I grew up in a less-than-ideal household. Addiction and abuse were in no short supply. Shortly after, I found myself dealing with an abusive marriage that was followed by a divorce with kids involved. This is something I do not wish on anyone. I became passionate about understanding how to move past our difficulties and setbacks. I learned what it takes to build strong relationships and connections after a lifetime of struggling to do this.
Education and experience has taught me many things. The biggest, and the one that stuck, was that people are not inherently weak. Actually, we’re warriors. Dealing with hardships life throws at us is really tough stuff, and it can seem like there’s no way to make it through. Yes, it sucks. Yes, it’s hard. But, it’s possible! As someone qualified to provide marriage counseling and individual therapy, I am here to be your guide. In addition, I can help support you through your own journey from pain and confusion to ease and joy.
