There is no 'right' way through this. There is just 'through.' Families are under tremendous pressure, even more so during these times. Children & teens spent too long without their social support and are now trying to achieve a new normal. This fear and anxiety of the unknown is similar to those experienced by adults recently. I can help adults, teens, & children work through the fear, anxiety, stress and trauma and help you build strong, healthy, resilient individuals and families. I enjoy working with all ages and specialize in family conflict, anxiety/depression, trauma, PTSD, Veterans, First Responders, & child specialties.

My formal education, practicums in play therapy, clinical internships in schools, residential group home, and at Childens Medical Center of Dallas / Psychiatric Consult Team prepared me to counsel individuals, groups, couples, families, and children.
The therapist's response is to come alongside the client to provide professional and competent care.Counseling is most helpful when there is a relationship between client and therapist that is honest, empathic, and committed; and provides awareness and personal growth. I believe the therapist and the therapeutic relationship serves as a mirror to the client whereby the client can view his/her reflection in a setting of acceptance, affirmation, change, and hopefully - healing. The client's journey to wholeness and healing is personal and self-directed and the therapist joins only by invitation of the client.

I am committed to helping people. I have a passion for supervision. I believe that supervision helped me to become a confident clinician and I feel empowered to help others find their clinical voice as well. I also have a passion for people dealing with chronic illness. People who deal with health issues on a daily basis need someone to talk to as they navigate the struggles of getting well. As a parent of four children I understand that parenting can be difficult and at times frustrating. I want to help parents find the joys in raising children and help them feel successful as caregivers. I am kind, compassionate, and honest.
