About me

As a licensed therapist (Licensed Professional Counselor), I obtained my Master of Counseling from Oklahoma State University/Tulsa, Oklahoma. My practice includes adults. I also offer extensive knowledge with the aging population, and care givers. I have been accomplished in facilitating support groups for various populations and numerous diagnoses, as well as training and education of other professionals regarding many Behavioral Health concerns.

Specialties I offer, and am experienced and well trained in are anxiety, depression, grief/loss, dementia/cognitive impairment, trauma and stress-related disorders. Other areas of focus include sexuality, hoarding disorder and personality issues, as well as other Behavorial Health concerns.

Although I recognize that all clients are unique individuals and different theories work differently with everyone, I work to assess clients and gain an understanding of what type of therapy will be most successful. Predominantly, I practice Person Centered and Solution Focused Therapy, and combine some Gestalt and Existential techniques as well.

I start with an optimistic view of all clients, providing a positive, supportive, and comfortable atmosphere/conversation. I offer an empathic outlook, working to connect with you. I am hopeful my clients can feel autonomy, and I also ask, “what difference or change do you want to achieve”? I believe taking a look at your meaning in life can be insightful many times too. I also offer mindfulness techniques when appropriate, as I do credit holistic approaches important for us emotionally and physically.

I prefer to work with adults aged 25 or older. Phone and video are astonishing ways to provide counseling sessions, however I am not so keen on live chat. I do use the messaging for in between sessions, if there is something of importance you want to share or let me know. I will do the same!

I hope to facilitate and support you through this process and towards your goal in seeking therapy.
