Hello! I am glad we found each other. Everyone needs support at some point and it takes a lot of courage to step out and ask for help. I respect those who do so a great deal! Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a helper. While it is important to understand about my credentials and approach to therapy, it is also important that you know I respect you and I will be very careful about our counseling relationship. Your health and growth are important to me. I have practiced as a counselor since graduating with my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2001. I am currently licensed in Arkansas, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in residential and outpatient settings.

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

My approach is very laid back and interactive. The vast majority of clients leave sessions with me feeling heard and knowing that I care deeply about them. There is space to laugh and cry and express all the emotions. I am big about being forthright with clients in a way that is kind; not tough love but a strong focus on a shared reality.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and principles of Emotion Focused Therapy, all with an overarching Systemic perspective, when working with clients. In the online setting, I will tend to also use some Solution-Focused techniques as well. I am certified as a Trust Based Relational Intervention Educator by the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development as well as an Advanced Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist.

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

I have had successful experience in addressing trauma, foster/adoption-related issues, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, family crisis, and other areas of practice.
