EMDR trained, PIT trained
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT license #201348) who loves what I do! I provide individual, couple, group, and family counseling, specializing in treating relationship issues, sex addiction and trauma.
My favorite quote is “Real is better than perfect,” by Dorothy Satten. I believe being authentic and open in our relationships builds connection with those that are most important to us. We are all working through something—whether it is trauma, addiction and/or relationship issues—and when we have people in our lives we can share those struggles with, the task does not appear so daunting because we know we are not alone. I would love to help you strengthen the relationships in your life!
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University in 2004 and went on to receive my Master’s degree in Human Development and Family Science, with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy, from Oklahoma State University in 2007. I have received intensive training in each of my specialty areas of sex addiction, trauma and relationships.
I trained with Patrick Carnes and became a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). My certifications in treating trauma include EMDR, Level 1 & 2, and training with Pia Mellody in her Post Induction Therapy (PIT) model. In addition, I have received several years of instruction in Psychodrama through the Bridging Harts Psychodrama Training Institute. Currently, I am working toward my certification in the Neuroaffective Relational Model, a model addressing attachment and relational and developmental trauma.
Although I was not born in Texas, I consider myself a Texan! I am the oldest of five children, with four younger (but much taller) brothers. I love my nieces and nephew and find great delight in being their aunt. When not providing therapy, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, walking my dog, traveling, trying new healthy recipes, doing home & lawn organizational projects, catching up on my TV shows, and working out.

I believe healing from life’s hard challenges is possible whether they be from trauma, relationship problems (marriage, divorce, betrayal, step parenting, care taking), or from addictions; either chemical or process addictions, depression, anxiety, grief, health issues, physical or sexual abuse, loneliness, low self-esteem and the many other issues life can throw our way. Hope is real and healing can happen so life can become satisfying and joyful. I am passionate about helping others become their best selves by partnering with them to process and resolve struggles that keep them from achieving peace and happiness and to accomplish their personal life goals.
I am EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) I & II trained and specialize working with those who have experienced big or little traumas that interfere with daily life. Serving with clients in addiction treatment facilities has strengthen my resolve to help people heal from the underlying problems that keep them from having the success and joy that can be experienced in life. I consider your whole life and environment, including relationships, mental/physical heath, work/school, and spirituality to see the full picture. I then join with you to create a personal plan to achieve healing, true happiness and your personal goals.
I love working with and empowering people of all ages. My personal experience with marriage, motherhood, a blended family with step children, grandchildren, family addictions, and divorce and the healing power of faith has enriched my life and fired a strong passion in me to help others find the healing and joy that is achievable in this life.
I look forward to working with you so that you may achieve healing and joy.

The difficulties in life can obscure the path forward. My person-centered style can help bring clarity by exploring and meeting your challenges one by one. I offer a nonjudgmental space where your difficulties can be processed freely.
I specialize in child-centered play and activity therapy for children and adolescents. I'm passionate about helping people across the life span navigate through life's bumpy journey.
In my work with children, play is the language used to process experiences. I provide an environment to help children feel accepted and understood to help them gain a sense of control during life's difficulties.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking and baking and catching up on our favorite shows. I also enjoy soap and candle making, traveling, singing, gaming, snuggling my cats, and collecting plants.
