 Psychotherapist, Author, & Keynote Speaker
My passion is assisting you in getting the life you desire by helping you navigate life's challenges.  As a seasoned professional of over 20 years my goal, is to create a safe environment where you can explore your emotional wounds while giving you honest, direct, and compassionate feedback and through the implementation of evidence based therapeutic interventions of CBT, DBT, ACT, and The Gottman Method.  My goal is for each client to leave their session with life skills they can begin putting into action that day.  For it is the repetitiveness of small behavior changes that create big differences.
My husband of 23 years who is a therapist in the same practice as well as a full-time police officer and I author several articles a month for different law enforcement publications.  We have been writing together since 2007 and if we were to compile all of our articles into one place, we would fill War & Peace three times.  We write on the subjects of depression, emotional wellness, morale, ethics, and compassion fatigue.  Our writing became very popular so we soon began traveling the country as trainers and keynote speakers.
I am skilled in the areas of:
   Chronic Pain & Autoimmune disorders 
   Christian Counseling
   Couples and Marriage Counseling
   Anger Management
   First Responders
   Job Burnout
   Compassion Fatigue
   Life Transitions
   Grief and Loss
Scheduling is easy! since you can schedule online through my website or you can call/text the office at 630.527.8877 or you can email me at
