I believe that when people give of their time, talents, and finances to help the disenfranchised, everyone is impacted!
God of all healing counsel comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, He brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. - 2 Corinthians 1:4 (MSG)
About the Founder
eXtraordinaryLIFE Counseling and Coaching is a Christ-centered organization specializing in Biblical solution-focused therapy. Our mission is to offer hope and healing to individuals, couples, and families suffering from a wide range of difficulties. Our goal is to impact the community by helping people who are struggling with real life issues, find proven solutions to their problems.
For over 20 years, I have dedicated my life's work to helping people find healing through the LIFE-giving teachings of Jesus Christ. I have ministered to hurting people in Houston TX and the surrounding cities since 1966 through various job experiences. I had the privilege of working as the Administrative Assistant to the Director of Operations and Director of Spiritual Life at The Star of Hope Transitional Living Center for Women and Children. I previously volunteered for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Chaplaincy, and had the distinct honor of teaching and directing the Women's Class at Grace Church of Humble. I have also participated in various speaking engagements for women's conferences, couples sex-addiction retreats, mentor seminars, and life-coaching workshops.
Because I am passionate about using my spiritual gifts of administration and teaching, I find it rewarding to sit one-on-one with people and minister to their spiritual, emotional and psychological needs. I have the privilege of working with people who deal with all types of real life struggles including (but not limited to): anger, anxiety depression, a lack of communication, appropriate boundaries, intimacy in their relationship(s); battling addictions such as alcohol, drugs, pornography, or sexually acting out with self or strangers, deception and rejection in their relationship/marriage, and struggling to overcome infidelity. While there are various reasons people seek counseling, my sole desire is to provide a safe place where they can come and find hope, healing, and restoration through Jesus Christ. Isaiah 41:10 (MSG) says, "Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady; keep a firm grip on you."
Growing up as a preacher’s kid, I spent a lot of time in the church; however, I had my own issues and eventually strayed away from God as a young adult. This difficult road only led to hard-learned lessons that inevitably redirected me to the Lord Jesus Christ. Having come full circle, and with a heart for ministry, in 1998 I proudly earned my Christian Counselor’s Certificate (CCC) from the International Christian Institute and Graduate School, setting me on the course for Continued Education in Christian Counseling. In 2002, I was ordained as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by the Pastors at Grace Church of Humble.
I am passionate about helping people; much like I remember my father being when I was a young. Now, I now walk in his footsteps, in hopes that one day I will hear him, and the Lord, say. "Well done!" Like Jesus, who was moved with compassion when He saw the multitude following him, I too am moved to help people!
As you can imagine, the work of counseling is not easy, but it is a very rewarding job, and with the help of volunteers and donors, we accomplish so much more. I encourage you to become a LIFE Partner to this ministry so that together, we can impact lives all over the community!
