I have been counseling in the Fort Worth and surrounding areas since 2011 in various settings including churches, counseling centers, intensive outpatient groups, and non-profit agencies. I have experience working with children, adolescents, families, couples, and individuals. I believe therapy should be a place for healing and learning to be healthy mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I mainly use a cognitive behavioral technique to help people stop destructive thought patterns. I also believe each person has unique strengths that can be utilized in therapy to set practical and achievable goals.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling and a Master of Arts in Christian Education. I also have a BS in Christian Ministry from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO. I am certified in the Prepare Enrich assessment for pre-marital and married couples.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor I have had the opportunity to see joy and peace restored in many lives. I consider it a privilege and honor to be a part of that process and to be trusted with the stories of those I serve.
We are all on a journey, and there are many obstacles to overcome on the path toward success. It is my pleasure to serve children, families, couples, and individuals as they navigate through daily challenges.
I hold a Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Amberton University and a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice from Tarleton State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas.
After teaching pre-school and elementary at a school for the deaf and hard of hearing, I developed a strong passion for diversity and culture. I have served in Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs and Private Practice settings empowering and equipping clients toward success. Working with children ages three years old and up includes parent support and encouragement.
I invite you to visit with me about your goals in our relaxed and welcoming environment. Let’s get started on this season of your life.
