Engaging the heart with courage and compassion to sow seeds of hope.

Hope is not naïve desire but a calculated risk that declares, whatever the loss, it is better than remaining where we are.

Welcome to Hope Rising Counseling!

I am sincerely grateful you are here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice in the North Texas region in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and have been practicing for more than 5 years. I offer counseling services for couples, individuals, and adolescents age 12 and up. In addition, I offer play therapy for children ages 5 to 12.

Every stage of life carries its own unique joys and challenges. Just as we can lose sight of the horizon when fog sets in, we can lose hope in difficult seasons. Nevertheless, hope endures. We are uniquely equipped to overcome, but we are not created to do it alone.

What hinders your hope today?
