Welcome to Flexible Mind Counseling
My wish is to provide a warm and welcoming space that allows clients to be vulnerable and take emotional risks in the service of self-discovery and healing. At times, we may lose our ability to trust our intuition. We may feel like imposters in our relationships, jobs or within ourselves.
Flexible Mind Counseling provides a bridge back to understanding your authentic needs.
We will develop an understanding of the structures at play in our daily life that construct and uphold self-doubt and lay the framework to trust our intuition.
“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection." – Bhagavad Gita
I work with adults of all genders, races and sexual orientations experiencing anxiety, self-doubt and perfectionism. Symptoms related to these issues can manifest as feeling cut off from emotion, overwhelm, stress and burnout. I provide services to athletes and performing artists who may be experiencing life transitions, performance anxiety or injury. I also work with groups ranging from ballet students to professional dancers to offer tools to better equip dancers for the demands of the profession.
How I Got Here
My own journey as a member of the LGBTQ+ population and professional ballet dancer led me to the field of mental health. I often felt alone in my own experience as a gay man in southeast Texas and developed an armor in the form of perfectionism and self-judgment. While I thought I needed these qualities to survive in the competitive world of dance, I realized they took me away from trusting my intuition. Through my own journey I realized my calling is supporting individuals in their quest for true connection to themselves and others.
