A new thing now can lead to big things later.
So glad you're here. Here's how we can start to get the ball rolling at A New Thing Counseling. A little bit of information.
THE GUIDING PREMISE
We all share in the human experience of walking through unwanted circumstances and unresolved pain. We can develop core beliefs that we aren't aware of that lead us to navigating our experience with painful patterns. Over time these can lead to increased stress, broken relationships, fear, and shame.
I truly believe people are not problems to be fixed, rather souls to be engaged, to be seen, heard, and understood. Isaiah 43:19, "See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." This is a guiding principle in how I approach counseling; that God is working in us and around us. We can engage with the faith aspect of your journey with gentleness.
I understand feelings of overwhelm that can come when we reach out for support. It feels big and scary, I like to look at small changes we can make that have big impacts over time. Ready to do some work? Let me join you.
WHO AND WHAT
I work with women ages 19 and over who are motivated, insightful, who want to learn more about themselves, and are willing to invest in the counseling process. I want to help you build compassionate curiosity to identify painful patterns, to better understand how your past is impacting you, and learn how the nervous system can help you move through pain. I want to work with you to build compassionate curiosity to examine core beliefs that are causing malfunctions and consider new beliefs that can provide new pathways to guide you in healthier growth.
I will bring an integrative style to counseling. I believe it is important to address all parts of our humanity: mind, body, emotions, and spirit as we engage with your story. Together we will develop strategies, rhythms, and tools that support you to develop choices to respond differently yet honestly.
I am available for in person or virtual appointments.
I do not take insurance and am considered out of network with your policy. I would encourage you to contact your health insurance customer support for understanding your out of pocket costs. I am happy to provide you with a super bill.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I obtained my bachelor's degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford Oklahoma. I received my masters degree in counseling from the University of Oklahoma. I have 18 years experience. My work background includes a medical hospital setting, a group practice, and church setting. Each of these experiences provided me opportunities to learn and grow as a therapist. Being outside, connecting with my loved ones, and trying something new refuels me.
You have already started a good first step; considering your needs and who is a good fit for you. Next thing, you can request a 15 minute phone consultation. I learn about you and you learn about me. Then the next step would be to schedule a formal intake counseling session where we will dig deeper and together determine the desired new thing.
