Problems in one area of life can have a ripple effect your relationships, career, finances, health, community, and general well-being.  Working with you, I help you discover the source of problem situations and equip you with new skills to manage your future.  Because I have studied and practiced many methods of therapy over the past 29 years, I can combine them to utilize the best possible approach based upon your treatment goals. Together, we choose methods that are based in science and proven to be the most effective.

EXPERIENCE

It has been my privilege to obtain over twenty-nine years of experience in all levels of treatment including hospital, residential, out-patient, in-home, online, and educational settings. I began my career in the Mental Health field, then through further education and experience gained my first Professional Counselor Licensure in Oklahoma in 1999.  I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor in Texas and have operated my own Counseling Center in Wylie since 2009.   My LPC-S status allows me to treat clients and supervise other counselors who are seeking to obtain licensure in the state of Texas.
