It is my desire to provide the best client care to each and every person that comes to Gilstrap & Associates. My desire for the administrative staff is to treat each client as an individual and create an environment that reflects one of integrity, efficiency and an attitude that shows a desire to serve.
As manager of the office staff, and a passion for serving others, I will lead our team to serve the clients of Gilstrap & Associates, to show excellent customer care and more importantly, the love of Christ.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern my areas of expertise include working with individuals, couples, and families. My specialties include working with life coaching, life transitions, career guidance, self-esteem, resilience, assertiveness training, anxiety, and family and relationship discord.
Before my time at Gilstrap & Associates I worked at a partial residential eating disorder clinic. Which means I have experience with working with individuals with eating disorders and other areas associated with them such as: depression, anxiety, PTSD, and self-harm.
I enjoy working with couples and providing a safe place for two people to work through marital struggles. I also work heavily with women and women’s issues. I have a variety of experience working with different stages of life transitions like first-time parents, empty nest syndrome and the psychological effects of growing older.
I assist individuals of all ages in navigating through difficulties, like anxiety, depression, abuse, anger management, ADHD, codependency, relationship concerns, social phobia, peer conflict/bullying, grief/loss, divorce care, life adjustments, work stress, career decisions, and identity.
In addition, I do family systems work with couples and families to address relational issues, such as conflict resolution, communication, infidelity, grief/loss, life adjustments, and premarital counseling.
