Licensed Professional Counselor, MEd, MDiv, NCC, LPC
After twenty years of practice, I continue to find that people are best served by a counselor who is emotionally and psychologically available to them in a time of need. I have enjoyed strong effectiveness working with depression, relationship conflict, grief, and anger management. I work with couples, older adults, teens, and children. These experiences have inspired me to incorporate multiple approaches that fit the personalities, interests and needs that people bring to my practice.
People often feel overwhelmed and have a sense that their lives are out of control. That's where I can help. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have 25+ years of experience helping people take effective control of their lives. Together, we can find "Solutions For Effective Living".
Do you have chronic pain and wonder if you can enjoy life again? Does your family struggle with addiction? Interested in reducing symptoms from a traumatic event? Trying to stop tobacco for health or prior to a surgery? Adjusting to mental illness/long term health condition and feel lost? It's my passion to guide you to a life that is as full as possible! I have been treating these issues, mood disorders, ADD/other adjustment disorders for 8+ years. My typical clients are young adults to Seniors. I see children/adults age 10 and over for chronic pain.
My clients' struggles are the same as most normal people - relationship problems, anxiety, depression, grief and life transitions. Sometimes you just need someone who is trained and experienced to walk through those struggles with you. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 23 years of experience, and I will work alongside you with compassion and enthusiasm. I work with individuals from 17 to 90 years of age.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist specialized to work with couples struggling with intercultural differences. You might feel like there is a disconnect between you and your partner which has led you to feel distant from each other. Maybe you disagree on how to raise the children, or what traditions and routines should look like in your family. These differences may also show up in your relationship with extended family. You are tired of discussing these topics and always ending in an argument with your partner. You want to feel closer to your partner, but you feel stuck and do not know how to make things better.
I love supporting clients in their exploration of new ways to express themselves and create an enriching life. My clients are often adjusting to difficult circumstances, looking to add to or revamp their coping strategies, hoping to process stressful past events, and/or improve their relationships with others and themselves. I find it helpful to reflect on the ways day-to-day challenges show up during therapy in order to practice new ways to cope with them in real time. I was based in Austin for several years and I'm now in-person in Lubbock and meet with clients online all over Texas.
Are you searching for strategies to take on the challenges in your marriage and home life? Are you struggling with relationships, dating, self-esteem, or reliving the pain of past traumatic experiences? If this is you, don't believe the lie that you are just another helpless victim. You can be an overcomer who will not be defeated by the trials and pain thrown at you!

Selecting a therapist and beginning therapy can seem overwhelming for those already struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment to life losses & transitions. Personal growth isn’t easy but it can be life changing and immensely rewarding. Many clients are discovering the convenience of teletherapy as an option.

I practice at Turning Point Counseling with 12 other clinicians/therapists. I primarily conduct psychological testing on children, ages 3-18 and adults of all ages. Most child and adolescent clients are referred to be evaluated for possible ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, or Bipolar Disorder or other Mood Disorders. With adults I do the same type of testing but also have evaluated over 2000 adults who are required to have psychological screening prior to weight loss surgery or pain patients who are required to have psychological testing prior to receiving a spinal cord stimulator or pain pump.
After many years as a nurse, a cancer diagnosis led me to change careers mid-life, and as an LCSW, I now assist others in overcoming their own life transitions and obstacles. Major life transitions, such as divorce, loss, moving, retirement, empty nest, debilitating illnesses, and trauma can cause upheaval, grief, and a tremendous amount of stress. I believe that life changes, even the difficult ones, can with intervention result in personal growth, and allow for greater self-discovery and awareness.

I will approach you with respect and encourage you along the way, openly listening to your concerns and offering you real life tools you can use to make changes.
