30 years of experience

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have my Masters in Social Work from University of Texas at Arlington. I have worked in the field of mental health and as a therapist for 30 years. I am licensed in Arkansas and Tennessee. I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds who are experiencing difficulties such as difficulty coping, low self esteem, anxiety, grief and loss, and stress due to life transitions. I believe that reaching out to a therapist is a big step. I am here to help you feel comfortable and connected in your therapy journey and to provide an environment where you can work on your goals without feeling judged.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together we will talk about what has caused you to decide to seek therapy. I will explore the problems you are experiencing in order to get an understanding of how you are feeling and functioning. Then we will talk about what you are wanting to get from therapy - what are your expectations and your goals for your therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I can help you identify the root causes of your problems in order for you to gain a better understanding of yourself. I can then supply you with skills and techniques that will help you to find solutions that work best for you and that lead to measurable progress.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

A person's thoughts, beliefs and behaviors can affect their mood, their self esteem, their relationships with others. I will work with you to help you recognize unhelpful or problematic thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that contribute to difficulties in your life. We will then explore ways to change or modify these to reduce distress and facilitate progress and the relief you are seeking.

Trauma Informed Care

Many people have had some form of trauma in their life that has affected their moods, relationships, feelings of self worth. I will assist you in recognizing and understanding how traumatic experiences have impacted you in regards to emotional or mental difficulties you are experiencing. I will work with you to develop skills and strategies to change negative perceptions and behaviors that result in difficulties you are having as a result of these traumas.
