 With almost 30 years of experience, I have treated thousands of clients with numerous issues.  I find it important to treat clients with dignity; respecting their abilities for self determination.  I see my role as being an expert, non judgmental, nurturing and neutral resource.  As a Licensed Social Worker, I am trained in sociology, psychology and Family Systems. Early in my career I worked as a rape crisis counselor. I also worked at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas working with women's health regarding infertility, adoption, complicated pregnancy, and neonatal intensive care issues.  I was trained in Cognitive therapy while working at St. Paul Medical Center where I gained familiarity with the medical aspect of managing emotional disorders. I am trained in solution focused therapy and have a Specialty  Certification in couples counseling with the Imago Relationship Institute.  I am  credentialed with the American Association of Christian Counselors and am listed as a resource for Focus on the Family.  I provide professional counseling for couples, families, and individuals.  It is my passion to help couples and families thrive.  I am also a trained mediator and co-developer of Detente Mediation because it is my mission to protect families from the damage caused by traditional litigation.


 

I work closely with my clients to determine which services best meet their needs.  Clients participate in selecting their session time.  I offer 45, 90, and 180 minute sessions.  I have emergency availability and see clients in the evenings to accommodate their schedules.  Couples sessions are typically 90 minutes long allowing ample time to learn and practice a specific safe communication model while finding resolution to their core conflicts.  This model allows couples to address the underlying, or root issues that affect their  relationships.  I also integrates a cognitive model into my couple’s sessions.     


 
 I use a cognitive model in working with individuals.  Cognitive therapy teaches awareness of thoughts that contribute to emotional discomfort. When you learn to manage distorted thoughts you gain the ability to manage your emotions.  I can teach you the skills  to change distressing thoughts and overcome anxiety and depression or help you cope with bipolar disorder.  

 

 

I have developed a unique approach to meeting your needs by providing personalized service and attention.  This approach moves beyond the conventional session structure providing you, the client, a greater opportunity to utilize the tools and insight gained in session.  My goal is for you to move through counseling in the most efficient way without a requirement for long-term, ongoing therapy.  This result - oriented approach helps you to resolve issues and move forward to fully enjoy your life and purpose.
