Sucely is a second generation Guatemalan-American who understands the difficulties of determining one’s identity, which has led to her love of all cultures. A current personal goal is to understand her anxiety through the help of her own counselor. She considers herself both a counselor and a counselee who understands the difficulty of the learning process and the joy of results. In May of 2018, Sucely completed her Masters of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Sucely had the privilege of working with adolescents and young adults via the school system and the church. Because of this experience and also living through her father passing away when she was only a child, she has gained an understanding of how difficult it is to live those phases of life. She specializes in issues of sexuality, college students and young adults, and families. Her goal is to help anyone who needs help navigating these waters. She also longs to help those who have had difficulty with their family system and their cultural background. Sucely loves walking with a person to a point of understanding and the process of healing and growth.
When it comes to counseling, Sucely approaches each person uniquely, getting to know their needs and working in a manner that best serves them specifically. Her approach is looking at key relationships throughout a person’s life and how they impact the way they live today. Some of these patterns include decision making, the way we treat ourselves, as well as the way we view others. Sucely’s hope is to provide a safe place where clients can come with their deepest wound and process them completely.
Sucely is a self-taught guitarist and was a worship leader while living in North Carolina, inspired by memories of her dad playing the guitar while she sang. Music has helped her keep a connection to the memory of her father and to have a deeper spiritual connection with God. Sucely Is also an amateur oil painter. She finds the arts to be a very good place to find healing and a place where the beauty of humanity can be reflected.
