  • Addiction problems (whatever the “drug of choice”) are all alike in the root problems but are all treated in different ways depending on the client.

- How do you know if you are really a “sex addict”? Or how do you know you are not just over-sexed? Are there signs and symptoms? Does anyone have to know for you to get better if you are an addict? Do women struggle too with sexual addictions? Do you have to attend a 12-step group like AA or Celebrate Recovery, really? These are questions I am routinely asked and the only way to determine the seriousness of any addiction is for us to evaluate you.

- Take Sex Addict quiz

  • Anxiety/panic disorder including but not limited to phobias, panic attacks, and social anxiety
  • Personality disorders such as borderline, narcissistic , avoidant, dependent, etc, and just about anything else
    • Take Narcissistic Quiz
    • Take Sociopath Quiz
    • Take Borderline Quiz
      • Please note from Psychcentral: "Our psychology quizzes are not meant to diagnose, but rather to help you understand whether a certain mental health or relationship issue may be of concern to you. It’s sort of like asking for a second opinion from an objective friend (as long as you’ve been truthful in your answers)."
  • Parenting issues dealing with blended families & parents being on the same page!
  • Spiritual issues and freedom from religious bondage & persecution
  • We also like to provide relief for those wanting out of bondage/guilt-ridden decision making processes of “Christian”/false beliefs that are not Biblically accurate. Our caseloads consists as well of probably 50% of married couples.
  • Stress management and identifying real source of stress vs. just a band-aid approach
  • Adolescent issues such as self-mutilation, unordinary rebelliousness, relationships, depression, self-image, suicidal ideation, bullying, addictions, and maybe most importantly the Digital World that consumes most of our children!  I am very down to earth, so most find me very easy to relate.
    • Have issues with your "screenager?"  Digital media has literally taken over our kids' lives and this documentary reveals all of the issues that come along with the average of 6.5 hours/day your kid(s) spends on devices.
      • This iGen (Gen Z'ers) group born from 1995-2012 are a unique and challenging group for sure and are facing some things we've never seen the likes of.  Yes, many of the same issues we've all been through as teenagers, but these kids are dealing with such a wide variety of complex issues in this digital-media era (where information is passed along at lightning speed).   It is probably more critical in this generation than any other time for these teens to have a safe place like counseling to dump all this data they are exposed to.
  • Male teens can sometimes be more challenging at first since talking is not their thing; so I find other ways to relate to them initially and that requires more time in the beginning.

* Since we are located within Lovejoy ISD, we see many students there and are familiar with most of the administration, including principals and school counselors.  We have a good relationship established and are able to coordinate the appropriate care needed for your student.  We of course also see plenty of adolescents from other schools close by, so please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have regarding any coordination of care between us and the school!
