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!
