Candice grew up in the beautiful city of Virginia Beach, VA. She received her Bachelor’s from Old Dominion University in Communications and earned her Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. While in college, Candice was very involved with Intervarsity and spent multiple summers working throughout Kenya. Upon graduation she continued to work with college students and spent time abroad working in a rehabilitation home for at risk moms and their kids. It was during this time that her passion for counseling grew, as living in difficult circumstances overseas began to highlight the ways that shame and unresolved conflict, both in herself and those she worked with, prevented the ability to live life to the full.
Candice’s leadership experience gives her a unique passion for those that feel the need to be the strong one, and she hopes to provide a space where clients can work through their own struggles and be their authentic selves. Candice believes that healing happens in the context of safe relationships and it is her desire to walk alongside clients in a shame free environment on their journey to greater self-awareness and freedom.
Prior to entering into private practice, Candice counseled men and women for almost two years at the Dallas Life Foundation. Candice has experience working with anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, abuse, marital conflict, family of origin issues, and other mental health concerns. In the past couple years she has been working extensively with young adult women.
For fun, Candice loves a good dance party, doing some form of art, yoga, reading, and trying something new. She is also actively involved in her church. Her perfect day would be spent somewhere outside with good music surrounded by friends, family and her husband.
