OWNER & THERAPIST

My goal is to help you evolve into the person you want to be. I want to work with you to identify your passions, personality, strengths, and liabilities and forge a path to fulfillment. The goals you set will be the focal point of our time together. We will have to address weaknesses and problems to get you where you want to be.

 

You may struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, relationship issues, or something else. That’s okay. We can handle those things. You’ll probably have to face some hard truths. You may need to make some difficult changes along the way. We’ll work through those things together. All along we will stay motivated by the end goal, and in the end, if you stay the course, you will be the person and live the life you want.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). I am a member of the Oklahoma Counseling Association and the Oklahoma Drug and Alcohol Professional Counselor Association. I’ve provided counseling services for the past 12 years. I spent four years directing community-based, outpatient treatment programs. I am a board-approved licensure supervisor for LPC and LADC/CADC candidates. I spend my time and energy trying to maximize my own potential as I help others maximize theirs. I’d love to help you evolve.

As a therapist, I am committed to helping individuals find hope in even the most hopeless situations. My goal is to help you be the best version of yourself, to feel comfortable in the uncomfortable, and build healthy positive relationships.

 

Through the power of the therapeutic relationship, I can help you identify positive changes and create new thought patterns to help you accomplish your goals and be the person you have always wanted to be. I believe that making positive changes to improve your life may be difficult, but it will be one of the most rewarding gifts an individual can offer themselves.

 

I have experience working with a wide range of clientele – women, men, children, adolescents, families, and couples with an array of issues including trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief, and substance use. I strive to see each client as an individual with individual needs and understand that there is not a one-size-fits-all modality for therapy.

 

I will work with you using a variety of counseling techniques. I am trained in written exposure therapy, play therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I’d love the opportunity to work with you!

My goal for you is to accomplish the personal changes you would like to see in your life. Your treatment plan will reflect this. I use several recognized therapeutic modalities including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Ego State Therapy (EST).

 

I really enjoy helping people recover from traumatic experiences, alcohol and drug addiction, depression, anxiety, grief, and mood disorders. I am passionate about the treatment of people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I am certified in EMDR, a unique and effective approach to treating people with PTSD as well as several other issues and disorders.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who has been working in this field since the 1990s. I have a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, LA, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas. I have had the pleasure of serving a variety of clients with a variety of issues. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient community mental health, and private practice settings.

I have a lot of experience, and I love what I do. I look forward to working with you.

My approach to therapy is based on the understanding that there are two experts in the room.
You are the expert on your experiences, your history, and the direction you hope to go. I am an
expert on techniques that help you utilize the skills you know and learn new skills to help you
reach higher goals.

 

I have experience and passion for working with clients ranging from teenagers to adults through
various life stages. Individuals, groups, couples, and family therapy services are all available.
Whether you are experiencing substance use, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, or any
assortment of mood disorders, I believe that our time together will enrich your life. Our time
together will be used to help you grow into the person you’d always hoped to become.
I utilize evidence-based models, primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive
Processing Therapy (CPT), Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS),
and Motivational Interviewing (MI).

 

I have a master’s degree from Southern Nazarene University (SNU) and am a Licensed Alcohol
and Drug Counselor with a Mental Health endorsement (LADC-MH). My time and experience
have been used working in community mental health, a domestic violence shelter, mental health
court, and substance abuse with veterans.

 

Whatever life has thrown at you, I look forward to growing through it together.

As Brené Brown says, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” I believe my job as a therapist is to come alongside individuals and families and help them come alive. We all deserve the opportunity to be the best that we can be, and I am honored to share that experience with my clients.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Candidate working towards my full licensure in Oklahoma. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Family and Human Services and my Master of Science in Community Counseling from John Brown University. I enjoy helping adolescents and adults work through the issues of life. I offer help for a wide range of issues including but not limited to anxiety, life adjustments, boundaries, coping skills, depression, grief and loss, self-esteem, and challenging relationships. I strive for clients to feel empowered and respected throughout their time with me. I use a caring, non-judgmental, strengths-based approach to therapy and consider it a privilege to be part of my client’s journey. I am trained in various modalities of therapy and am committed to finding the right approach for each client.

 

I’ve been married for 24 years and have four children.

 

I look forward to serving individuals and families in Tulsa and beyond.
