Every person has a story that makes them unique. One thing I know for sure is that you are a capable individual and there is a beautiful story inside you waiting to be told. It would be my privilege to listen to your story so we can work together to create a life you are thrilled with. Your comfort and trust in me are my biggest priorities and I will work hard to earn them so we can get started writing the next chapter. You are deserving of a happy, fulfilling life. I am excited to get started helping you build it.
What To Expect From Our Work Together
My approach is very collaborative, and we will focus on finding and building upon your inherent strengths. I’m here to encourage you to express what needs to be said while also recognizing when it’s time to slow down and practice patience as we process the hard stuff we uncover. We will plan out and work towards your goals while also addressing your fears, and hesitations. Along the way we will also discover you brings you joy and excitement and work to create more of it in your life.
What You Need to Know About Me
I am a Texas girl with a big heart. My favorite quote, “You could love anyone if you knew their story,” encouraged me to pursue my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Abilene Christian University. Healthy, fulfilling relationships are the heart of society. I believe the greatest joy can come from the work we do with the people we love the most, even when the greatest frustrations and challenges can come from those same dear people.
My husband and I have 4 children (all teenagers, so it’s exciting!) and a spoiled yellow lab, Drake. I am confident most days can be survived through laughter, a good sweat at the gym and a generous bowl of ice cream. I find joy in the little things and believe in the long-lost art of the hand-written note.
Client Focus: Couples and families desiring improved relational satisfaction, adults seeking better quality emotional and mental well-being, and those looking for peace and joy in the daily routine of life.
Specialized Training: I have worked within a domestic violence women’s shelter and received additional training in The Gottman Method for Couples Therapy.
