My philosophy in working with clients is to help them find the good in their lives and figure out what they are doing right so they can do more of that.  Sometimes life is difficult and coming through difficult times is not easy.  However, with help, there is hope for a brighter tomorrow.  I want to help you in ways that are convenient for you.  I respond to emails and text messages within 24 hours.  If you are more comfortable having sessions via Skype, I can help make this work for you.  

I have been counseling for 8 years, first at an Advocacy Center, then in private practice.  In Texas, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-S). I completed my PhD in Marriage and Family therapy.  I have been married more than 20 years and have two adult children. 
What makes my practice most unique is my therapy dog, Luke, who is with me in most of my sessions.  Luke was rescued from the humane society and is a caring, gentle dog.  He loves to be pet, and even brushed if you like. Luke will sometimes offer you his toys to join him in play, or may just sleep on your feet.  I find that having Luke in the session with us helps to calm the atmosphere and helps everyone feel more comfortable.

I enjoy working with couples and families, helping them to communicate better, thereby reducing conflict.  So often our conflicts are because of miscommunication.  We fall into old habits that do not help our situation. Conflict resolution and good communication can help families find the right balance.  Even if only one person in the family or couple is ready to work through therapy, positive change can occur.  Marriages can be saved and couples can be brought back from the edge of divorce.  Even after an affair, there is hope for a good relationship.  If you have lost hope in your relationship, I can help you rediscover that hope while you learn how to better communicate with your partner.
