If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive” -Brené Brown.

I am a California native although I have called Texas home for over half of my life. In 1990, I graduated from the University of the Pacific with a degree in education. I taught elementary and middle school for a few years and realized that it wasn't my calling. 

 

I have always had an interest in mental health. I worked as an advocate at a crisis pregnancy center for about five years in Denton, Texas, igniting my passion for counseling. So, at the age of 40 something, I went back to school at Abilene Christian University for a Master's in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation followed by a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

 

I have been working in private practice for about four years. My theoretical orientation is a combination of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Existential Therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). A large part of my practice is based on methods related to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I see clients in our office and virtually.

 

When I am not counseling you can find me working in the garden, boxing, or playing pickleball. I have two grown children, Katie and Tyler, and. a beautiful grandson., Karter. I live in Haskell, Texas with my husband, Kyle, our three dogs, and two horses.

 

What I have learned about being a human, let alone a therapist, is that everybody has a story. Life can be very difficult for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes these struggles can feel overwhelming, leaving us confused and hopeless. My job is to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to tell your story.
