About Me

Shirley

Has traditional counseling not work for you?

Because I was raised on a Texas ranch and have been involved in rodeos while I was young, I turned to horses for help with my problems, Today, I offer my clients the opportunity to use horses in our counseling sessions. But that is not the only technique that I use. By using a variety of techniques, which are customized to meet each client’s needs, I am able to help a variety of clients.

Struggling with Parenting and Co-Parenting issues?

Do you or your child struggle with ADD or ADHD? During my 25+ years counseling, I spent more than 13 years working in the area school districts helping students and their families.

Have you experienced a traumatic event that has left you with PTSD?

I also have been traveling part-time providing counseling for the military since 2010.
Is Anger Management and Domestic Violence destroying your relationships? Do you want to save your marriage? Since 2003, I established Stable Life Counseling Center, LLC, where I started providing couples counseling, court-ordered anger management sessions, and family counseling. I have also worked in domestic violence shelters.

Do you know how to pick a spouse for a long-term relationship?

My pre-marriage class has been approved by the State of Texas for a discount for a marriage license.

In 2012, I moved it from 3806 N Main St, Victoria, TX to my current location because I am semi-retired. I like being able to help others and look forward to seeing you.
