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.

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!

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.

I am humbled every day when clients allow me to walk along side of them through their personal challenges and then cheer them on as they work towards the goals we have set together.  We live in a world where there is more time spent on a phone instead of face-to-face conversations. Therapy gets us back to the basics of really hearing each other and figuring out a highly individualized approach. Whether you need a therapist for individual work, couple counseling, or help for your child. I will be honored to help you in your process to a healthier and happier life.


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Candidate and have a dual degree in Marriage and Family therapy. I am certified in the Gottman Method, EMDR, Trauma Focused CBT, and I’m currently completing the hours to become a Trauma play therapist for the state of Oklahoma.


I have worked with highly traumatized children in the therapy playroom and treasure every moment that you and your child trust me to help them. Plato once said, “You can learn more about a child in one hour of play than you can in one year of conversation.” When we play in the sand tray or play a simple game of UNO there is therapy going on and information being gained. There is nothing too big that won’t be overcome in the playroom.


I help clients of all ages break through anxiety’s powerful grip, depression or the wounds left by trauma. I will help you gain back peace and empower you to move through life and future challenges. We will work through the feelings of shame, guilt and hopelessness so that you can find a HOPE!!
