Navigating Life's obstacles can be overwhelming. I work with individuals, couples and families to help provide the guidance and direction they need. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Professional Life Coach with over twenty years of clinical experience. Whether you are struggling to resolve past hurts, feeling stuck in the present, or are exploring ways to shape your future, I can help.
My goal in counseling is to help hurting people of all ages. Life may give you pain and emotional traumas, but I want to make a difference in your life by helping you to create the changes you desire. Difficult relationships, grief, unwanted or racing thoughts, cause panic attacks, sleeplessness, fears, anger, or addictions. As an experienced counselor and retired school teacher, I am trained to address these symptoms using EMDR, Prayer, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and more. Boerne is the perfect town to find your safe, comfortable place.

My passion in therapy stems from believing that everyone has a unique life story to bring into counseling and they need a place to safely explore that story. I am an empathic and understanding counselor who works motivationally with my clients to give them the opportunity to develop greater awareness of this story and how they understand themselves and their challenges. My desire is to collaboratively work with my clients using various methods and expressive techniques so that through therapy clients reconnect with themselves, their strengths, and develop new ways of being and connecting with others.

I provide play therapy services to children under ten, with a specialization in children three to seven. Play therapy is to children what counseling is to adults. If you are concerned about your child's behavior, developmental challenges, or disruptions in the parent- child relationship, play therapy is the recommended approach to help your child. I also offer a variety of services to enhance the parent-child dynamic including expressive art therapy, sand tray, behavioral consultation and family therapy. No matter the issue I will offer encouragement and support in an accepting environment.
I provide affordable, confidential therapy to adults, couples, adolescents, and children. I offer an open-minded and non-judgmental approach to my clients when everyday problems become too overwhelming to handle on their own. I create a warm relaxing environment so clients feel comfortable exploring their situation and together we can find solutions. I am open to seeing either just the individual or incorporating members of the family to help achieve the best outcome through therapy. When working with children, I often use play therapy techniques including art therapy to help children express their feelings through play.

Clients who work with Elite Performance Counseling, PLLC (EPC) want to regain their performance edge. High-achievers often struggle with anxiety—it comes with the territory. Those who achieve a lot of success in life, however, are often assumed to “have it all together.” The truth is high-achievers deal with enormous amounts of pressure to achieve bigger and better, which frequently results in unhealthy levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and ultimately a drop in performance. Peak performance is impacted by one's ability to effectively leverage the mind/body so that stress can be managed, and power/potential can be maximized.

I am an encouraging therapist who is passionate about helping others reach their goals and experience hope and healing. My therapy approach is rooted in the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I have found this approach very effective with a multitude of issues. CBT is strongly supported in the professional literature as having verifiable evidence of success.
