About

IMG_4171

I believe that life was meant to be lived with purpose and fulfillment rather than merely survived. Life has ups and downs and it can be difficult to work through times of transition and suffering. Counseling can be very helpful in the process of healing from past and present emotional wounds allowing you to move forward in greater health.

With 15 years of professional experience counseling individuals, families, and couples, I provide compassionate, professional, counseling services to help you address struggles including:

 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship Problems
  • Boundaries
  • Codependency Issues
  • Parenting
  • Young Adult Transition
  • Family Conflict
  • Teen Issues
  • Divorce
  • Grief
  • Emotional Regulation

I use therapeutic modalities including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Family Systems Theory
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Mindfulness

I graduated from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Social Work and University of Oklahoma with a Masters of Social Work. I have experience working in the non-profit agency setting, schools, and private practice.

Additionally, I provide Coaching to individuals who are seeking assistance setting goals and moving through periods of feeling stuck and confused with current life issues. Coaching differs from counseling in that it primarily addresses making changes in the present without digging significantly into family or origin or mental health issues.
