“I love what I do: Helping my clients reach the best version of themselves and seeing them overcome challenges and find life balance.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist was my childhood dream; I even had a coffee mug depicting Lucy’s “psychiatric help 5¢ booth” sitting on my desk as a silent reminder of my life’s purpose! I promptly enrolled at the University of North Texas after high school with psychology as my focus. I was forced to scale back my academic career and contend with health issues and subsequently developed a successful land management career. I completed my BA in psychology at North Texas, an MA in counseling at Liberty University, and finished my internship at Granbury Youth Services, assisting at-risk youth. I feel my personal struggles, such as discovering that I was dyslexic in college, have helped shape me as a therapist. As a fully licensed clinician, I love the freedom private practice offers. I love what I do: Helping my clients reach the best version of themselves and seeing them overcome challenges and find life balance.
What should someone know about working with you?
It’s my philosophy that the therapy experience works best in a freewill environment where there is no expectation of a specific number of sessions. I try to make interacting with me as simple as possible. Prospective clients are required to have a free consultation to answer any concerns about therapy. Consultations provide an interactive sample of what therapy will look like while working with me.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
When I examine additional credentialing as a practitioner, I desire to expand my knowledge of cognitive behavioral and trauma therapies. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and becoming a certified mental health integrative medicine provider (CMHIMP) are all post-licensure certifications that align with my philosophies and provide for a more diverse set of psychoanalytic and holistic approaches for clientele.
