Have you been wounded or experienced trauma that has left you feeling hopeless and helpless? Both can be many things and come in all shapes and sizes. Your trauma could be having an abusive relationship or living in a world that is full of fear and chaos. It can be losing someone or something that you love and never being able to grieve and heal.
Whatever the trauma is, if it remains unprocessed it will come out in ways you may not expect and mostly will not like. It may look like intense emotional reactions, constant stress, sickness and physical pain just to name a few. You may be reading this wondering if your issues may be affecting your relationships. The reality is that we all have issues and left unresolved they can spiral out of control and cost us relationships with those we love the most.
Are you tired of suffering in the pain of unresolved issues and ready for something better? If your answer is yes on any level then you have come to the right place. I am here to guide you toward awareness of how trauma affects your life and create a safe space to allow you to process and work through the agony of what happened. I use evidence based practices rooted in Christian principles to help you gain control of your mind, emotions, body and your life.
Throughout my career as a Licensed Professional Counselor, Iâ€™ve worked with individuals, relationships, families and adolescents to overcome mental and emotional obstacles. Iâ€™ve seen women become empowered through setting healthy boundaries in their relationships, and find peace through processing trauma from their past. I have seen relationships and families transformed through dealing with the issues that have been causing them pain. I have successfully counseled men, women, and children into experiencing freedom from anxiety, depression and chronic stress. Are you ready to make the first decision towards the best version of yourself? All you need to do is contact us through phone or email to set up an appointment.
My education began at Cameron University, in Lawton, OK earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and finished at Mid America Christian University with a Master of Science degree in Counseling.
I have been married for over 10 years and love spending time with my husband. Marriage has taught me that two imperfect people can enjoy a great life if they commit to and focus on working on themselves first.
So, what are you waiting for? I know working on yourself is difficult and may feel overwhelming right now. However, the incredible freedom, peace, and loving relationships that await on the other side are worth it. And simply put, I believe you are worth the effort and hope I get the chance to help you discover how amazing and valuable you are. Your next step is to simply call or reach out through email to set up an appointment. I hope to hear from you soon!

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible and Ministry at Oklahoma Christian University and his Masterâ€™s degree in counseling at the Harding School of Theology in Memphis, TN.

Do you ever feel like no one understands? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, hopeless or lost? Maybe youâ€™re struggling to find connection with others around you. Sometimes change feels impossible and happiness seems unattainable.
The good news is that no matter how messy life becomes, our God is always working behind the scenes for you! There is always hope. More good news: you have already taken the first step. That first step takes so much courage!
I believe you matter. God made you and you are worthy of love. God created you in His image and called you for a purpose. He also created you for connection. I would love to make a new connection with you, as well as support you in strengthening other relationships in your life.
As a Christian counselor, I use evidence-based approaches coupled with Biblical principles to support you in reaching your goals and living out Godâ€™s purpose for your life. I strongly believe that you already have the tools you need to succeed, and that together we can discover ways to use them more effectively. We will work together to examine your mind and heart and how these form your behaviors and patterns, which can lead to lasting change. I want to help you focus on Godâ€™s presence and pursue His plan for your life.

Linda Gerber, LPC
I believe that â€śCounselingâ€ť is a gift that you give to yourself. It is the gift of healing. It is a gift that opens you to improved self-understanding and acceptance, and it is a gift of investment in yourself. Could you benefit from the gift of counseling? Are you stuck in traumatic thoughts, depression, or anxiety? Are your fears keeping you from living a healthy and satisfying life? Are you suffering from grief or loss? Have you experienced trauma that hijacks your emotions and feels like it controls your thoughts? Are you losing important relationships and are not sure why? I am here for you and ready to help through counseling.
Life can sometimes seem like a series of struggles. And one struggle can often build upon another. My desire to serve others through counseling grew out of traumatic childhood experiences that left me feeling poorly equipped for life. I experienced depression, poor self-worth, anxiety and flashbacks. I have also experienced severe grief when my beloved husband died after almost 32 years of marriage. I was left to figure out being single and living alone as my life as I knew it and many of my dreams were buried with him. Can you relate?
Through extensive counselor training that spans three decades, remaining open to receive help from others, God has restored my heart and I know he can bring healing and restoration to your heart too!
I have been a licensed Counselor for thirty years and would be honored to to guide you on your journey towards hope and healing. I will meet you where you are with a non-judgemental posture. My office will be the safest place for you to bring your real self with all the hurt and baggage that is weighing you down. And together, we will unpack your pain and trauma and begin moving forward into your healing. I offer faith based counseling and using tools like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for issues in the areas of grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, marital and premarital counseling.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and my master's degree in Applied Psychology from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. I am a proud mother of two sons and an adoring grandma for 3 grandchildren.
When I am not working I love spending time with my family and playing with my energetic and fun-loving grandchildren and having fun with friends eating out. I enjoy swimming, playing board games, reading, gardening and cooking.
Darbey Hargrove, MA ( Mental Health Coach )
Are there days where you donâ€™t seem to recognize yourself? You might feel as though anxiety and the expectations of this world have taken over your identity. You donâ€™t have to face these problems alone, because God has created us to walk beside one another when faced with adversity. Your identity is not based on the things of this earth, and there is healing and restoration available for you.
I am happy that you are here reaching out for help because I know that it is not easy to admit when you need to make a change in your life. It would be a privilege for me to walk beside you on this journey. My method is to create a non-judgmental environment so that you know that all parts of you are accepted, seen, and known during our time together. I want to help you identify patterns that have been holding you back so that you may become the best version of yourself.
