Candice Farmer MA, LPC
Candice grew up in the beautiful city of Virginia Beach, VA. She received her Bachelor’s in Communications from Old Dominion University. She moved to Texas in 2012 in pursuit of graduate studies and earned her Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Prior to entering into private practice, Candice worked in a rehabilitation home for at risk moms and children in Africa, at a local homeless shelter, and extensively in both ministry and clinical settings with young adult women. Candice has been a part of the Sparrow House Counseling team since 2016.
Candice’s personal experience gives her a unique passion for those that feel the need to be the strong one and she enjoys working with clients stuck in a cycle of shame and self- criticism. She aims to work with clients collaboratively to move them towards becoming more of the person they are made to be and living a life congruent with what they truly want life to be about. Candice believes that healing happens in the context of trusted relationships and considers it one of her greatest honors to walk alongside, learn from, and hear the unique stories of her clients.
Clinically, Candice has special interest in women’s health, grief and loss, life transition, family of origin issues, co-dependency, eating disorders, sexual dysfunction, anxiety, depression, spiritual concerns, and OCD. She is Perinatal Mental Health Certified (PMH-C) through Postpartum Support International and enjoys supporting women through fertility struggles, pregnancy, postpartum, and the ongoing journey of motherhood. She is also a certified Prepare Enrich facilitator available to work with couples preparing for marriage.
In her spare time, Candice enjoys spending time with friends and family, especially if the outdoors, coffee, or live music is involved! She enjoys investing in her yoga practice, exploring new places, reading a good book, and dabbling in something artistic. She loves getting time with her husband and two children, Adalyn and Elijah.
