COVID 19 Announcement

I am offering tele health video services as an option at this time due to COVID19 risks.  I use Go To Meeting a secure and private platform.  If you are interested in scheduling, please email me through my contact page.  If you choose video counseling, I will email you a link that you can click on to join the session, early in the week before your scheduled session.  It is usable from any device that has internet or cell phone data access.  Some people have reported greater ease of use with downloading the free app which you can link to from the email I will send with the session link.  I am happy to assist you if this is too unfamiliar or intimidating to you.  If you choose in person counseling, and later, you have a known or suspected exposure or have any COVID symptoms, we can convert a session to online at a moment’s notice.

Welcome to Enrichment

Welcome to Enrichment in Waco, Texas. I offer holistic trauma therapy for individual healing, and family system healing, including meeting with multiple generations in a family.  I offer couples counseling when trauma in the recent or remote past of one or both partners is complicating the relationship, or there is trauma within the relationship such as infidelity (there are limits to the infidelity work I do). 

My passion and joy is helping people whom have experienced interpersonal trauma.  Since I work exclusively with interpersonal trauma, (rather than trauma such as environmental or war) I will share my working definition of trauma with that perspective in mind.  I once heard Trauma defined as anything less than nurturing.  I love the generosity of and compassion in this definition.  I think for my work, the definition which also holds the qualities of generosity and compassion would be this:  Interpersonal trauma is pain and/or harm (emotional, psychological, relational, physical, sexual, spiritual, financial, manipulation etc.) inflicted on a person by a person, and/or the witness of such inflicted pain and/or harm, and/or suffering some form of a result of the pain and/or harm inflicted on another.  The pain and/or harm may be intentional, accidental, or even oblivious.  Pain is pain, harm is harm.

I have a special interest in serving helping professionals - first responders, doctors, therapists, social workers, and teachers, who have experienced trauma or secondary trauma. The trauma therapy processes I use are holistic.  I use incorporate much more than traditional talk therapy.  I use EMDR therapy, yoga, journaling, visual processes, shame resilience work, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, guided relaxation, breath work, art, and psychoeducation as well as mindfulness, and somatic informed processes.   It is an option to schedule Dig Deep counseling sessions which are 4 hour to full day counseling sessions, like a mini therapy retreat. This requires a bit more planning to schedule and requires prepayment.

I firmly believe that the space is part of the healing process, so I have worked hard to curate a space that cultivates a sense of calm, healing, and nurturing.  My hope is that you feel immediately welcome and relaxed as you enter the space and breathe a sigh of relief when you enter each time. 

My office is located at 5010 Lakeland Circle, Suite A, Waco, Texas 76710. Video-based counseling is available upon request. Contact me here to schedule today or call me by phone at 254-300-5339.  You will get voice mail.  Leave a message and I will call you back.
